Rand Paul in January 6 Capitol Riots


On Principles & Values: 2020 election "in many ways was stolen"

Rep. Jamie Raskin told senators about how his daughter and son-in-law were at the Capitol that day and barricaded themselves in an office during the riot, hiding there under a table. Afterward, he said his daughter told him: "Dad, I don't want to come back to the Capitol." Raskin said during his tearful speech. ""Senators, this cannot be the future of America. We cannot have presidents inciting and mobilizing mob violence because they refuse to accept the will of the people under the Constitution of the United States."

"Rep Raskin says Trump promoted the 'big lie' that the election was stolen but didn't Raskin promote the 'big lie' that Trump stole the election in 2016? Wasn't it Jamie Raskin who 'incited violence' by objecting to Trump electors?" continued Paul, who has made spurious claims of his own about the 2020 election results. Paul, who has been a vocal critic of both Trump's impeachments, falsely claimed in December that the presidential election "in many ways was stolen."
