“Well, you know, in a time of absolutely scandalous betrayal of people’s oaths of office and crimes being committed all over the place, somebody who does their job and sticks to the law will stand out as a hero on that day. And I think on that day he was a hero for resisting all of the pressure campaigns and the coercive efforts to get him to play along with this continuation of the Big Lie, this big joke that he could somehow call off all the proceedings himself.” – Rep. Jamie Raskin, today on Meet The Press.

Raskin: “In a time of absolutely scandalous betrayal of people’s oaths of office … somebody who does their job and sticks to the law will stand out as a hero on that day. And on that day, he was a hero.”https://t.co/Sy7EcBzbfP
