More from Raskin on the 1/6 investigation:
“[Trump] wasn’t just inciting an insurrection, he was working to organize a coup ... I can’t imagine that the Department of Justice would not have evidence at this point to that effect.” — Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) on 1/6 investigation

They aren’t forgetting, they either have no clue or don’t care. Remember we aren’t working with the highest order of the gene pool here. The dude they chose to organize violence shot his own eye out misusing a gun so no brilliance on display here. Obstinate, yes, bright, no.

Replying to @therecount
Trump himself said that using the 5th is basically saying that you, and possibly others are guilty of some things.

Do them in public @RepRaskin, watching someone plead the fifth makes a much stronger case to the public
