Jamie Raskin brings up a Voltaire quote that we probably should have heard a lot more the last four years:
"Anyone who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."
Would anyone like to sign up for Jamie Raskin’s law school course?
In a world of Jim Jordans, be a Jamie Raskin.
Wow. Jamie Raskin is a national hero.
Jamie Raskin and the House Managers checkmated Donald Trump. The only strategy left for his lawyers is to throw over the board and eat the pieces.
Rep. Jamie Raskin is a great American.
When people study 100 years from now how the United States began to find its way back from the mob violence, destruction, and death that Donald Trump unleashed on this country, they will recall the words of Representative Jamie Raskin
Jamie Raskin is giving a masterful speech on the democratic religion of self-government through the ballot box while standing in the temple of our democracy.
Every time I hear Jamie Raskin speak it feels like I'm being given a warm hug and a big cookie and told "Let's talk about your feelings and see if we can turn that frown upside down." Dude proves you can speak powerfully without being a dickhead. A rare politician.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) ends impeachment day 3 quoting Thomas Paine:
“Tyranny, like Hell, is not easily conquered, but we have this saving consolation: The more difficult the struggle, the more glorious ... our victory.”
He tells senators: “Good luck in your deliberations.”
What Jamie Raskin meant was, good luck living with your consciences after you vote to acquit this guy. You’re betraying everything this country has claimed to believe about itself all the way back to its founding. https://t.co/tmj8juxDNc
Jamie Raskin had an unbelievable closing. But you can’t break through to people who have no souls.
Jamie Raskin claims that Trump "wanted to incite and provoke" a "race war" because it furthered his political objectives. The purpose of this trial is to furnish a public record to justify future crackdowns on so-called "insurgents," as opposed to actually convicting Trump
Adam Schiff told everyone this was going to happen. And Jamie Raskin is telling them it will happen again. But Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and Rand Paul don’t care because they are only concerned about getting the chance to hump Donald Trump‘s leg on the golf course.
Nancy Pelosi choose Adam Schiff & Jamie Raskin as the lead Impeachment Managers. Thank you.
Rep. Jamie Raskin says in closing argument for impeachment: "Just in general, if a president incited a violent insurrection against our government, would that be a high crime and misdemeanor? Can we all agree at least on that?" https://t.co/YubPpuDO6i
I hope Jamie Raskin plays a portion of Adam Schiff's closing from the first impeachment saying words to the effect that if Trump is acquitted, he will do it again.
Jamie Raskin is a force of nature and a national treasure.
I loved the citation of Voltaire - If I can make you believe an absurdity, I can make you commit an atrocity (approximation off the top of my head) Sums up Trump and his followers! Really frightening! Jamie Raskin did an extraordinary job under the worst conditions of his life. https://t.co/I0eBsoFdv1
Jamie Raskin, Ted Lieu, David Cicilline, Eric Swalwell, amongst soooo many HYPOCRITES.
Just research all of their rhetoric on fighting and violence.
What ever happened to people being genuine, humble, and honest.
I almost corrected You.
Yup, he could have been 2004. I have been watching Representative Neguse and he didn’t disappoint today.
However, Representative Jamie Raskin @RepRaskin
brought me to tears, he is an incredible constitutional lawyer and orator with heart, just amazing.
“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered, but we have this consolation: The more difficult the struggle, the more glorious in the end will be our victory." - Impeachment Manager in #Trump trial, Jamie Raskin. He was quoting Thomas Paine.
