Geraldo to Hannity: Nixon Wouldn’t ‘Have Been Forced to Resign’ If You Were In Media Then

How influential does Geraldo Rivera think Sean Hannity is? So influential that he could have led to Richard Nixon serving out his second term.

Appearing on Hannity’s radio program this afternoon, Rivera wanted to praise his friend and host for raising all the questions surrounding the FBI and DOJ when it comes to the Russian investigation. After Hannity rattled off a list of issues he finds with anti-Trump bias in the probe and how the real scandals aren’t being covered, Rivera brought up Nixon.

“Nixon never would have been forced to resign if you existed in your current state back in 1972, ’73, ’74,” he told Hannity.

Hannity laughed and said he was only eleven years old back then, giving us this pretty remarkable response from the Fox News correspondent:

“I know, it’s too bad for — It’s too bad for Nixon, because nobody like you existed then. I say that because I believe that our prime responsibility now is to unshackle the 45th president of the United States.”

Rivera would go on to say that the Russia probe is now a “toothless tiger” as they’ve proven that the Steele dossier was the “fake basis” for a FISA warrant, thus negating the whole thing. He added that he just wants Trump to be “free of this.”
