WATCH: Trump not protected by First Amendment for inciting insurrection, says Rep. Raskin

Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md. spoke Feb. 11 as House impeachment managers continued to present evidence for why the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump of inciting an insurrection for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump was impeached by the House in January, while he was still in office.

Raskin said Trump is not protected by the First Amendment for inciting the insurrection — a key part of his defense. “The First Amendment does not create some super power immunity from impeachment for a president who attacks the Constitution in word and deed while rejecting the outcome of an election he happened to lose,” he said.

Raskin said Trump’s actions threatened the First Amendment and the fundamental American right to vote.
