Sitting Congressman Says U.S. Constitution Is ‘an Accident Waiting to Happen’ (VIDEO)

Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) took issue on Friday with the constitutionally-mandated manner in which presidents are elected, calling the Electoral College “an accident waiting to happen.”

Raskin, who was a constitutional law professor prior to his time in Congress, told MSNBC host Chris Hayes that the system as a whole was “vulnerable” and that the Electoral College had allowed room for “strategic bad faith actors” like former President Donald Trump.

“Final question for you. You were a constitutional law professor before you were a United States Congressman. I wanted to hear you talk about these different aspects of an inquiry or making the case here,” Todd began, noting that the January 6th Committee — of which Raskin is part — did not have the power to prosecute former President Trump.

“Your committee doesn’t have criminal prosecutorial power, and nor should it, it’s a congressional committee,” he continued. “There’s a difference between what I would call the great crime of Donald Trump, which was a frontal assault on the core of American democracy, and whatever statutory violation of the U.S. code he may have committed. Sometimes, it can feel a little bit like a mismatch there, and I wanna know what you think about those two lanes.” (Read more from “Sitting Congressman Says U.S. Constitution Is ‘an Accident Waiting to Happen’” HERE)
