What’s the meaning of GATE?

In English, gate means an opening in a wall or fence; a means of entrance; a valve or other device
for controlling the passage of a fluid. In archaic English it means way or path, and in some dialects it
means method, style.
But there is a combining form with the noun –gate, widely used in many countries. Its meaning
is: usually political scandal often involving the concealment of wrongdoing. For example:
Watergate (US, 1970s); Irongate (US, 1980s). In general, this word is not translated and it remains in
English, but combined with a word in another language, like Spanish.
