FLASHBACK: Lead Impeachment Manager Jamie Raskin Attempted To Object To Electoral Vote Certification For Trump In 2017

|

Rep. Jaime Raskin, who will serve as the head impeachment manager for the Democrats' second attempt to remove President Trump from office, also attempted to challenge the count during the Electoral College vote certification in January 2017. Raskin argued that due to a legal technicality, Florida's slate of electors should be set aside.

Raskin's attempt did not go as far as the challenge launched by Republican House members in 2021 because his objection was not cosigned by a senator. In 2017, then-Vice President Joe Biden had to shut down Raskin's challenge.

Other prominent Democrats joined in on the fun in 2017 too:
