on Friday dismantled former President Donald Trump’s 14-page response to a subpoena from the House select committee investigating last year’s deadly U.S. Capitol riot.

Raskin, a member of the committee, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that Trump was already “playing his silly games” in the written reply from earlier that day.

And in fact, Trump uses that too in this enormously revealing letter, where he says lots of people ‘feel’ that there was fraud,” he added.

Your feelings, Mr. Snowflake, cannot dictate the course of the future of the republic. »
