Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Tuesday on MSNBC's “All In” that Ivanka Trump, the daughter and the senior White House adviser of former President Donald Trump, was “cooperative” in her eight-hour testimony during the House committee hearings investigating the “riot” that took place at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Raskin claimed, “Chair Bennie Thompson said afterward that she was a cooperative witness, and in that sense, she exemplifies the vast majority of the people who we have contacted, who've come before the committee, who have told exactly in a lot of cases, mostly what they know in other cases. Essentially people are cooperating.” He went on to say, “The remarkable thing, to me, it's how many people want to testify to unburden themselves and tell the truth about what took place on that fateful day.”
Raskin added, “The people who are most ferociously sticking to the big lie are the ones who are least likely to cooperate. The ones…trying to maintain the pretense that Donald Trump won the election, that January 6 was, you know, rioters presenting flowers and hugs and kisses to the officers. Those people are the ones who are refusing to participate. Then there are some people who seem to want to rejoin the rule of law and the constitutional democratic framework. I think it's also good that this major schism has erupted within the ranks of the Republicans.”
