Rep. Jamie Raskin said on CNN that an “assassination party” was “hunting” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during the siege of the Capitol.
“There was an assassination party hunting for Nancy Pelosi,” Raskin told Jake Tapper Sunday morning. “So, this cannot be at the level of normal partisan push and pull and just kind of throwing rhetorical bricks back and forth. This was an attack on our country.”
“They built a gallows outside the Capitol of the United States,” he added, saying protesters also wanted to “hang Mike Pence.”
