Democrat Congressman Jamie Raskin Wants To Use Jan. 6 Hearings To Abolish Electoral College

Democratic Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin is hoping to use the Jan. 6 Select Committee to eliminate the Electoral College and elect presidents by a nationwide popular vote, Axios reported Sunday. As part of its activities, the committee will issue a report with recommendations for legislation intended to prevent future obstruction of certification of the Electoral College slate. Raskin is reportedly clashing with Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney over whether or not the committee should recommend eliminating the Electoral College altogether or simply reforming the Electoral Count Act, the 1887 law that governs certification.

But don’t you dare say that this hand-picked by Pelosi committee isn’t principled and partisan.
