Carl Bernstein says Trump is 'more of a disgrace' than Nixon following second impeachment

Famed journalist Carl Bernstein joined Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday night just hours after President Trump became the first president in U.S. history to be impeached twice, this time on Charges of inciting insurrection at the Capitol on January 6. Bernstein spoke about the differences between Trump and former president Richard Nixon, who resigned due to his involvement in the Watergate scandal before the House could vote on impeachment.
“Is this more of a shambles than Richard Nixon?” Cooper asked. “Well, it’s more of a disgrace,” Bernstein replied. “This president has created an insurrection that attacked—caused the people's house to be sacked by his followers. So we're talking about a totally different set of crimes than Nixon’s.”
Bernstein went on to say he believes Trump is more dangerous to the country than Nixon ever was.
“He is the gravest danger to the national security of the United States that any president has ever been,” Bernstein said. “You cannot say that about Richard Nixon.”
