Jamie Raskin Attacks Republican for Comparing Capitol Riot to ‘Tourist Visit’

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Jamie Raskin Attacks Republican for Comparing Capitol Riot to ‘Tourist Visit'” – below is their description.

Former President Donald Trump’s top allies could face subpoenas in a House committee’s investigation into the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, as the nascent panel considers how best to flex its oversight muscle.

Members of the House committee made clear during their dramatic first public hearing Tuesday that Trump’s activities that day are a central focus of their inquiry. The hearing centered on gripping testimony from four officers who helped defend the Capitol against a violent mob of Trump’s supporters armed with hammers, metal bars, knives and batons.

The committee, which includes seven Democrats and two Republicans, has subpoena power, and could use it in the next week or two to bring in witnesses and gain access to documents and other material, said a committee official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss private deliberations. Among those key witnesses could be Trump administration officials and some of the former president’s allies in Congress.
