Raskin said that when MSNBC’s Ali Velshi asked if criminal referrals would be for criminal activity or not to testify:
It can be both. When we come to people who have January January committed a crime, We’ll turn it around, though At the same time, there is the chairman Indicates our determination We get all the information Ask about anything. It’s not prudent either Cheeky It is the subpenas of the government Or documents from you, you have If you do not want to testify Claim the Fifth Amendment Privilege against Self-crime, and we don’t Think it exists.
If anyone likes President Trump Would like to come forward Fictionally or someone else And say I’m doing my exercises Privilege against Self-offense and sets it Where a completely different process They can be used Immunity In other words, we will vaccinate From any information you use You give us, but you still do To testify. So it is also possible. The point is, we’re not going to Play these games during tAdministration when they It behaves like a subpoena, and that is a posh Isn’t it.
This is a very serious matter. We are seeking information, And we have a wide range Report to the American people What happened and what about The changes that we have to make The whole government system And protection for protection Democracy against the right, Violent extremist attacks and Political manipulation and Formula
Trump and his rebel team can’t hide from the 1/6 committee.
Representative Raskin’s message is that the 1/6 committee has the White House behind them, and they’re not making noise around. Trump and his co-conspirators can no longer hide behind the president’s power and if they refuse to testify, they will face criminal charges, fines or both.
Trump will certainly try executive privileges or lawsuits, but there is a belief that he has no executive privileges and no lawsuits are likely to fail.
The 1/6 committee is coming to know the full story of the Capitol attack, and that story is likely to be detrimental to Trump and the House and Senate Republicans.
