Stuart Kelter interviews Jamie Raskin, who represents Maryland’s Eighth Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives and in 2021 was the Lead Manager in the second impeachment of Donald Trump, in response to the January 6 insurrection that aimed to block the certification of Joe Biden as president-elect.
Raskin is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, the Rules Committee, the Oversight and Reform Committee, and the Administration Committee. He is also a member of the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th attack on the United States Capital. His most recent book, a memoir published on January 1 of 2022, is Unthinkable — Trauma, Truth, and the Trials of American Democracy, which delves into two juxtaposed, unthinkable events: having to bury his 25 year old son, Tommy, on January 5, 2021 a few days after his dying by suicide, and then the very next day, attending Congress on January 6 and personally living through the horrific violence of the insurrection.
