The Raskins have been in politics and controversy for a long time. Now the Democrat family is caught hiding stock transactions which is against the law. Their excuse is sickening.
Rep. Jamie Raskin is a nasty Democrat Representative in the US House. He and his family have been involved in shady actions and now have been caught in some more.
Raskin’s father was college professor Marcus Raskin who was indicted for conspiracy to resist the Vietnam war effort.
…he was indicted for conspiracy to obstruct the Vietnam War effort by encouraging young men to resist the draft. He coauthored a call to resist illegitimate authority and stood trial along with doctor Benjamin Spock and others who advocated the burning of draft cards, break-ins at draft boards and other unlawful actions to obstruct the war effort. Many young people did what was advocated and were punished for their unlawful acts.

It appears that Rep. Raskin and his wife are following in his liberal father’s footsteps. Business Insider is reporting that the Raskins didn’t report financial transactions according to the law.
Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland violated a federal conflict-of-interest law by failing to properly disclose stock shares his wife received for advising a Colorado-based financial technology trust company.
The congressman likewise disclosed information about the sale of Reserve Trust stock eight months after Sarah Bloom Raskin dumped the stock in late 2020 for $1.5 million, an Insider analysis of federal records indicates.
This violation of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act‘s disclosure provisions, which exist to promote transparency and defend against financial conflicts, comes at a time of significant national attention for the Raskins.
Jamie Raskin, who acknowledged he was late filing the portion of the disclosure about the sale and said it happened because of his son’s death, is a prominent congressman who led the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Sarah Bloom Raskin is President Brandon’s nominee to fill the position of the government’s most powerful banking regulator and faced a key Senate panel on Thursday.
Raskin uses his son’s untimely death as his reason for breaking the law. Democrats really have no shame. His wife is being pushed by Brandon to join the Fed, clearly a conflict of interest. How could Ms. Raskin ever be objective and independent in actions involving the US economy with her spouse pushing far-left America destroying policies in Congress?
Business Insider reports:
If confirmed, Sarah Bloom Raskin would become vice chairwoman of supervision at the, after having held top-level jobs at the US Treasury and the Fed during the Obama administration.
Yet she faces an uncertain confirmation path among Republicans and conservative Democrats in a narrowly divided Senate given that she has called for harsher financial regulations aimed at combating the climate crisis and supports tougher oversight on big banks.
The omission from congressional reports of the shares she held in Reserve Trust is likely to hand another round of ammunition to Republicans, who want to stall Brandon’s nominees. At least one conservative watchdog group is already questioning whether she used her past Fed connections to help the fintech trust, and Sen. Cynthia Lummis, a Republican of Wyoming, brought it up during Thursday’s hearing.
Now Raskin is using an anti-free speech argument to claim President Trump should never have said anything about the stolen 2020 Election, especially on January 6th. But free speech is what saved Raskin’s father from indictment years ago. An individual who speaks highly of the Raskins writes:
Unsurprisingly, the defense was that the First Amendment protected Marcus’ advocacy of resistance to the draft, even if such resistance then took a form of unlawful actions by others.
Now, Marcus’ son Jamie is quoting his father in a speech that would cut the heart out the very First Amendment that twice saved his father. If Jamie Raskin’s current view of the First Amendment had prevailed back in the day, his father would likely have been convicted of two felonies. If President Trump incited his followers to commit unlawful conduct, so did Marcus. I believe that neither incited violence and that both were protected by the First Amendment.
