Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Donald Trump is going to jail.
This unwavering refrain has been echoing across the cultural chasms of the liberal left for years on end, each month with a new theory as to how and why the former President will find himself behind bars. And, with each passing month, Teflon Don skates again.
It’s a lesson in futurism that many lawmakers have already learned. But not Jamie Raskin.
A leading member of the Jan. 6 select committee said Friday he “really would be surprised” if Attorney General Merrick Garland doesn’t act on the panel’s criminal referrals and indict former President Donald Trump for his conduct relating to the attack on the U.S. Capitol.
“I do think it’s very important that we establish that it’s not just foot soldiers but kingpins who are prosecuted,” said Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., who announced criminal referrals against Trump and others for possible violations of four federal statutes at the committee’s last hearing. “And it’s just wrong to send hundreds of foot soldiers to jail and leave the very clear kingpins unprosecuted.”
Speaking on the final episode of Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast, Raskin added that Trump “conspired to defraud the government [and] American people. He traded an honest election for a profoundly corrupt and fraudulent election with counterfeit electors. … And he aided and assisted and gave aid and comfort to insurrectionists at multiple points. … I’m very serious about him facing the consequences and paying for the cost of his actions.”
So serious, Raskin said, that Trump could spend “the remaining days of his misanthropic life behind bars, presumably with Secret Service agents. … I mean, would [the Secret Service agents] be standing outside the bars, or would they be inside the bars? Who knows?”
Raskin has long been a rather staunch anti-Trump voice, and his latest drivel will likely surprise no one.
