Raskin is a member of the House Judiciary Committee since January 6 and a former House impeachment manager.
By his personal observations and opinion, the Democrats and people who oppose another Trump term in the White House would have the Constitution on their side.

On ABC’s “This Week,” Raskin explained that “Section 3 of the 14th Amendment states that anyone who has sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution, and who violates and betrays that oath by participating in an insurrection and rebellion against the Union shall never be allowed to hold public office again.
The Republicans, particularly the radical Republican Party, embraced this position after the Civil War and throughout the Reconstruction era.” It was used then, and it may certainly be used again, depending on what we discover about Donald Trump’s actions, to prevent him from ever being able to run for office again.”
When asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos if he had any proof that President Trump was involved in the uprising, Mr. Raskin mentioned the House’s second impeachment of Mr. Trump, which took place after the January 6 disturbance.
Mr. Trump was eventually found not guilty by a unanimous vote in the Senate.
In Mr. Raskin’s words, “the issue is whether he was involved in the organization of the incident.”
“And that’s precisely what the select committee is looking at as we carry out our mandate under House Resolution 503 to investigate all of the facts that contributed to the events of January 6th, as well as the causes of those events.”
Rep. Jamie Raskin "delighted" to hear Republican lawmakers give consideration to prosecuting former Pre. Trump if evidence shows he aided and abetted the Jan. 6 insurrection. https://t.co/iZSgsWrRDF pic.twitter.com/pHu1DVhrue
