‘We Know Exactly Whodunit’: Jamie Raskin Buries Donald Trump With Killer Agatha Christie Takedown
During an appearance on MSNBC on Friday, U.S. Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said that former President Donald Trump’s role in the 2021 Capitol insurrection is no mystery and proceeded to smack down the culprit.
“This is not an Agatha Christie novel. We know exactly whodunit, Raskin said during the interview. (Watch the video below.)
The House Select Committee probing the Jan 6 attack on the US Capitol —of which Raskin is a member— released its final report Thursday, concluding that Trump bore responsibility for the 2021 coup attempt after he lost the 2020 election.
The defeated former president falsely claimed that he was cheated out of the presidency, and those lies have continued unabated without offering evidence to back his claims.
“I think that there needs to be a serious reckoning of individual accountability for the people who set all of these events into motion,” Raskin told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle. “Is there anybody in the country who believes that any of this would’ve happened absent Donald Trump’s will?”
Raskin presented the clues to Trump’s culpability in the Capitol siege on Friday, pointing out that Trump got extremists to change planned protests from Jan. 21 to Jan. 6, the day of the election certification. He also noted that Trump attempted to strong-arm state election officials to fabricate votes in his favor and overturn results. And his incendiary declaration during the riot that Vice President Mike Pence didn’t “have the courage” to interfere with the certification made the situation worse.
“So, it’s just impossible to think of any of this happening without Donald Trump being the central instigator of the whole thing,” The Democratic lawmaker said. “And if somebody’s got a theory as to why it was really antifa that did it, then bring the evidence forward. But our bipartisan committee found no evidence of involvement by antifa.”
