    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Thursday on MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight” that the Republican Party had “turned into a messianic cult of personality around” former President Donald Trump.When asked about House Republicans requesting Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg testify, Raskin said, “Let’s start with this, we actually have jurisdictional authority over the Department of Justice and the House Judiciary Committee. But it’s very well-established that even there, with the DOJ, where there is real jurisdictional oversight responsibility, that we cannot intervene in an ongoing case. Then you take it from the federal level to the state and local level, where we...

And with democracy under attack all over the world, like with Putin invading Ukraine, and the Ukrainian people...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that the Republican Party under former President Donald Trump is “a paranoid cult of an authoritarian personality.” Raskin said, “I felt, you know, a measure of closure and satisfaction about the question of individual accountability. And, you know, justice in an individual case like that, anybody who has suffered, you know, a crime or lost a loved one to a crime, that kind of justice never equals the sense of sadness and anger that you go through. This is not equal to the immensity of the crime against American democracy,...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline ” that former President Donald Trump unleashed racism, authoritarianism and neo-fascism on America. Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “My next question, I know the press is hung up. We’re all hung up on the criminal referrals. It seems to a person your perhaps greatest commitment is to is the story, and there’s an impact on what the committee did. We went to school learning about how endangered our democracy really was. We heard from lifelong republicans testifying that story. To you, what is the most important thing that people take from the...

    At a Nov. 15 hearing on cannabis reform at the federal level, House Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said President Joe Biden’s pardon of people convicted of “simple possession” of marijuana under federal law was “a good first step,” and added that the next step is that “cannabis must be decriminalized at the federal level as a matter of basic justice in the country.” Under current federal law, marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 illegal drug, which means it has a “high potential for abuse” and is not a “currently accepted medical treatment in the U.S.,” according to Other...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Tuesday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that running for president would not “immunize” former President Donald Trump from being prosecuted. Cooper asked, “You’ve been uniquely positioned over the past several years as someone who understands the legal and constitutional issues swirling around the former president. If he is making this announcement in part believing that this will somehow protect him from investigations or indictments, is that accurate, do you think?”

    Following President Joe Biden’s speech Wednesday, which the White House dubbed “Standing up for Democracy,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) declared that “If someone is willing to deny the clear results of an election, they shouldn't be running in an election.” But, on January 6, 2017, Raskin contested the results of the 2016 presidential election, in remarks on the House floor: “I have an objection because 10 of the 29 electoral votes cast by Florida were cast by electors not lawfully certified, because they violated Florida’s prohibition against dual office holding.” Then-Vice President Joe Biden denied Raskin’s challenge, noting it was...

    VIDEOLEAVE RAY EPPS ALONE! That is the message projected by J6 Committee member Jamie Raskin when questioned about Epps. You could have peacefully entered the Capitol on January 6, 2021 while being encouraged to do so by the Capitol Police and exited just as peacefully but still end up rotting in a D.C. jail. Yet if you were the biggest instigator encouraging people to enter the Capitol that day, the Democrats such as Raskin will go out of their way to protect you if your name is Ray Epps. Naw! He wasn't a fed. Riiiiight. Oh, and I suppose that...

    The House select committee investigating the insurrection has in its possession video outtakes of then-President Donald Trump's message to his supporters on January 7, 2021, the day after the riot at the US Capitol. The outtakes, first reported by The Washington Post, were part of production of a speech Trump gave the night after the riot. The panel is expected to show clips of the outtakes during its prime-time hearing Thursday, according to sources familiar with the committee's plans. The outtakes show Trump having a difficult time working through the effort to tape the message. Trump refused to say the...

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” House Select Committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) sounded off about the hearings over the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Raskin asserted that the hearings were “unifying Republicans, Democrats, independents, libertarians” and “people across the spectrum in a determination that American constitutional democracy has got to work the way we know it has to work.” “People are busy, and so we know a lot of people, especially younger people, will learn about the hearings through snippets that go out on TV or online, and people now are able to process information...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said that after investigating former President Donald Trump’s actions around the 2020 presidential election, he has “entered so much in Donald Trump’s head” that he can see the former president’s next moves because of Trump’s “real blood thirst for power.” Anchor Chris Hayes said, “It is still surprising to me how the scope and systematic nature of the various attempts, just the thing that you guys showed about the calls to the state legislators, the calls every day, the voice mails, it was not grasping at straws, you know? It wasn’t a temper tantrum. Did you...

    Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) — a member of the January 6 Committee investigating the riot at the Capitol last year — said after the Los Angeles riots in May 1992 that he hoped then-President George H. W. Bush did not “encourage” any type of “backlash against the rioting” which occurred. Following the infamous Los Angeles riots, which broke out in the city after police officers were acquitted of beating black motorist Rodney King, now-congressman Raskin said that he would have hoped President Bush did not “anticipate or encourage a backlash against the rioting.”

    Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) has pushed colleagues on the House Select Committee investigating Jan. 6 to support ditching the Electoral College, Axios’ Jonathan Swan and Hans Nichols reported Sunday. According to the report, Raskin has argued in multiple conversations with committee members that the panel should recommend abolishing the Electoral College to “protect future presidential elections against the subversion that [President Donald Trump] and his allies tried to pull off in 2020,” Swan and Nichols write. In January, Raskin stated in an interview on ABC’s This Week that he opposes the Electoral College — personally preferring a national popular vote...
