Dan Rather: Regardless of Whether Russia Has Dirt on Trump, Damage Has ‘Been Done,’ I’d Be ‘All Over That’


On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former CBS host Dan Rather stated that regardless of whether the allegations that Russia has damaging material on President-Elect Donald Trump are true or not, “a lot of the damage has already been done,” and he would be “all over that like a hawk on a rabbit.”

When asked what he thought the big news of the night was, Rather answered, “I’m a breaking news guy, and this — these allegations, and I underscore the word these allegations about what the Russians may or may not have on Donald Trump. In many ways, whether it’s true or untrue, a lot of the damage has already been done, because it raises new questions about who this man is, who’s coming into the presidency. So, tonight’s breaking news, it just broke a few hours ago, I’d be all over that like a hawk on a rabbit.”
