WATCH: Jamie Raskin Addresses Trump Cult After January 6th Witness Says He’d Vote For Ex-Pres Again

Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers testified before the January 6th Committee, describing efforts by Donald Trump and allies to enlist him in efforts to illegally overturn the election. Despite this, he says he’d still vote for Trump again. Representative Jamie Raskin weighed in on Sunday, discussing what this means going forward.

Hyper-partisanship is brand, logo, and packaging for the Trump party. Those who are with him are in, and those who are not, are out. If a Republican wants the votes of the MAGA party, then it’s in their best interest to be all in.

Despite that, Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers testified before the January 6th Committee, not only willingly sharing information about the efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Donald Trump’s favor, but doing so in one of the televised public hearings.

Below, you can watch him explaining how Rudy Giuliani, working on the then-president’s behalf, urged Bowers to support these efforts, citing partisan unity as a reason to do so.

Bowers says he rejected that reasoning, and refused to be a part of the scheme — but despite that, the Washingoton Post reports that if Trump ran again, against President Biden, Bowers says he’d support him again.

Here’s what Jamie Raskin thinks about that.

Raskin didn’t take the opportunity to attack the partisan nature of this promise, and still praised Bowers’ testimony and patriotism. Instead, he warned, “If you want to get Donald Trump back in office, you’ve got to be prepared to do the exact same thing next time, because Trump has proven himself to be absolutely disrespectful of the rule of law.”
