Congressman Jamie Raskin-Democratic Club Speaker 9/24/21

As you all know, our Dem Club meetings tend to feature speakers from our area. However, we are delighted to announce that we will be hearing from a distinguished voice from our nation’s Capital, US Representative Jamie Raskin. This is a rare opportunity to hear from someone serving in a role in matters with historic consequence. Join him this Friday online to hear what he has to say about the Select Committee Investigation on the January 6th Attack and the state of our politics. All are welcome.

We distribute a Zoom link for our club meeting on the Thursday prior to the meeting date. To request the link or assistance getting connected, contact Phil at pjwmia@aol.com.

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.

For right now, they’re great. When the time comes, we’ll be there, too.

I prefer face-to-face under normal conditions, but now I’m not so sure.
