Former President Donald Trump will likely be indicted and spend the rest of his life “behind bars,” Representative Jamie Raskin said Saturday.
Raskin, a Maryland Democrat, served on the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot. The panel spent months probing Trump’s role in the insurrection, which saw a mob of Trump supporters, allegedly motivated by his unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud, violently protest in a failed attempt to force Congress to block the certification of President Joe Biden‘s Electoral College win.
“There’s just deep culpability from the very beginning in everything that Donald Trump did. I’m very serious about him facing the consequences and paying for the cost of his action,” Raskin said. “He could spend the remaining days of his misanthropic life behind bars, presumably with Secret Service agents.”
