Congressman Jamie Raskin: Trauma, Truth, and the Trials of American Democracy

Hosted By: Moment Magazine

Jamie Rasking Unthinkable. Trauma, Truth, and the Trials of American Democracy

Jamie Raskin, a father, Congressman and Constitutional law professor, began 2021 grief stricken after the painful loss of his son, Tommy, to suicide. Just seven days later he experienced the horrific events of the Capitol insurrection on January 6 and then led the impeachment effort of President Donald Trump. Congressman Raskin details the first 45 days of 2021 that forever changed him and his family in his just released memoir Unthinkable: Trauma, Truth, and the Trials of American Democracy. Congressman Raskin will be in conversation with Amy E. Schwartz, Moment’s Book & Opinion Editor.
