8. During the Watergate scandal Nixon was never indicted

even though a whole bunch of his minions were. Instead, the grand jury that indicted Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, Colson, Strachan, Mardian, and Parkinson secretly named Nixon as an unindicted co-conspirator. The special prosecutor dissuaded them from an indictment of Nixon on the ground that a President can't be indicted until he leaves office because of separation of powers/executive privilege issues.
