Fifty years ago, five men were arrested after breaking into the Washington headquarters of the Democratic National Committee.

The ensuing scandal would eventually lead to the resignation of President Richard Nixon and become a synonym for government corruption.

A CNN original series, “Watergate: Blueprint for a Scandal,” reexamines the infamous break-in and cover-up — this time told firsthand by John Dean, former White House counsel. The four-part series premieres Sunday at 9 and 10 p.m. ET/PT.
