Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) appeared to take a page from Congressman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) playbook when he repeatedly told CNN anchor Dana Bash that he had “evidence” that a number of Republicans begged former President Donald Trump to pardon their January 6th activities.
Raskin made an appearance Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” to discuss the ongoing public January 6th Committee hearings, which began last Thursday and will carry into the coming week. Bash made a note of the claim that Republicans had asked Trump for pardons, and pressed Raskin on it several times to no avail.

How many of your colleagues in Congress did that? And what evidence do you have? Because you know that congressman Scott Perry is denying it.”
Raskin appeared to evade Bash’s questions — namely how many Republicans he was accusing and what kind of evidence he had against them. Instead, he argued that if Republicans had done such a thing, it was an indicator that they were guilty of a crime and knew that.
