Appearing as guests on Thursday's CNN Tonight, former CBS anchor Dan Rather and former ABC anchor Sam Donaldson declared that President Donald Trump is "out-Nixoning Nixon" on the Ukraine issue, with Donaldson claiming that there is a "smoking transcript" and Rather suggesting that it is already time to "roll the credits on a mob movie" based on President Trump and Rudy Giuliani's activities.
At 10:46 p.m. Eastern, host Don Lemon introduced the segment: "The coverup, the tapes, and a President under a cloud of impeachment. Is President Trump out-Nixoning Nixon? Who better to ask than two legends?"
As Rather began his analysis, he suggested that the matter is worse than the Watergate scandal:
Certainly it's reminiscent of the Watergate period in the 1970s, but there is this big difference, and I do think we, you know, we need to kind of pause and assess where we are -- the gravity of the situation, but at the same time, remain calm. But what's different between what Richard Nixon did and what Donald Trump has already admitted to is this: It involves a foreign power.

Just more unhinged libtards.
This nonsense is so ridiculous and so over-the-top it’s hard to believe anyone but a drug-addicted liberal could listen to this garbage day-in and day-out.
Watching 5th season of Poldark, and like the arch villain George Warleggin in that season, the Dems, unable to destroy Trump, have gone insane.
Just more lying, delusional, weirdly nut-burger libtards.
More accurate I think.
More accurate I think.
Yep, with a few more choice adjectives added for good measure.
My own personal belief is that drug abuse is rampant in our ruling class, including our leaders. Perhaps some use narcotic drugs to keep physical pain in check or perhaps they became addicted through legal means, but the numbing of the brain's frontal lobes occurs regardless of the means of addiction. This is close to home for me because a close relative of mine is a highly educated professional who has struggled with addiction for 20 years, ruining her career and her relationships with everyone. The family stopped covering for her so that she was forced to reveal her problem to save her marriage and her close relationships. She lost her job and her professional license. I once read that a pharmacist in Washington D.C. made the statement that his pharmacy delivered Alzheimer's medications to Capitol Hill on a regular basis. I totally believe that and I believe that the insanity, the lies, and the willingness to destroy this nation, it's success and it's future possibility to give a better life to all our people is in jeopardy because of a few who were given powerful channels to enrich themselves through corrupt dealings and abuse of others. The best thing which could happen is to have real whistle blowers who would come forth without fear to tell what they know about those in positions of power over us who are substance abusers or hypocrites. A deep cleansing is desperately needed.
You’re losing the war when you have to drag old has-beens into battle.
Those beacons of ethical clarity and shining stars of moral rectitude have spake! Be ye silent and obey!
Dan Rather and Sam Donaldson walk into a bar. The bartender says, “What is this, some kind of a joke?”
Dan Rather is almost 90.
Sam D. is 85.
These people never lose the passion to exterminate every Conservative American.
I recall on another thread about Donaldson, another Freeper made the comment that Donaldson (and you could certainly also include Rather) is what happened to American journalism.
The abbot and Costello of the lame team media, we already have the 3 stooges AOC ‘s gang. Nice to see nostalgia coming back from the 50’s TV shows
Did Dan and Sam also cover the type of Depends they wear?
Interesting observation coming from a BOLD- FACED LIAR!
I was around for Watergate.
It turns out that the ‘Rat party has become the very things it has always professed to loathe.
The Dems make Nixon look like a piker.
