About Congressman Raskin
You may know Raskin from his role as a Lead House Manager in Trump’s Second Impeachment Trial. Congressman Raskin and his fellow house managers made a compelling case that Trump willfully sanctioned actions to undermine the 2020 presidential election. These actions culminated in the January 6th insurrection. Unfortunately, despite a defection of 7 Republican Senators, the GOP Senate Majority blocked impeachment. They successfully voted to cut short the trial and acquit the President without calling a single witness. Moreover, they ignored the evidence and for the second time failed in their duty to hold a reckless and vindictive US President to account.
Now, Raskin serves on the Select Committee to investigate the January 6th attack. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed him along with six fellow Democrats. They are Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, Zoe Lofgren, Elaine Luria, Adam Schiff, Pete Aguilar, and Stephanie Murphy. Speaker Pelosi also assigned Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger to serve on the Committee.
Jamie Raskin is a US Congressman representing Maryland’s 8th Congressional district will join us this Friday. Currently, he is serving his third term on the Judiciary, House Oversight, and House Administration Committees. In addition, he is serving his second term on the Rules Committee.
