FOX News: Raskin reveals questions he would’ve asked Trump if he testified 

“Why did President Trump not tell his supporters to stop the attack on the Capitol as soon as he learned of it? Why did President Trump do nothing to stop the attack for at least two hours after the attack began? As our constitutional commander-in-chief, why did he do nothing to send help to our overwhelmed and besieged law enforcement officers for at least two hours … after the attack began? On January 6, why did President Trump not at any point that day condemn the violent insurrection and the insurrectionists?”

After asking those questions, Raskin posed one legal question to Trump’s attorneys. 

“If a president did invite a violent insurrection against our government–as of course we allege and think we’ve proven in this case–but just in general, if a president incited a violent insurrection against our government, would that be a high crime and misdemeanor?” he asked. “Can we all agree at least on that?”
