(Newser) – Regardless of the outcome of former anchor Dan Rather's lawsuit against CBS for his firing over a George Bush National Guard story, one man is not going to be pleased: the president. The case is bound to revisit embarrassing charges that Bush received favorable treatment and dodged requirements serving in the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam war, reports the Guardian.

Rather was fired for airing a story on Bush's record based on falsified documents. But other evidence in Bush's service history indicates that some of the details of the story that the president ducked duty requirements are true. Rather is suing CBS for $70 million, claiming that he was axed so CBS could curry favor with the White House.
