In Congress, Rep. Raskin served as the Lead House Manager in the second Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Last summer, he was appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to serve on the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol. He is serving his third term on the House Judiciary, Oversight and Administration Committees and is serving his second term on the Rules Committee. 
 

Prior to Congress, Raskin was a three-term State Senator in Maryland and a professor of constitutional law at American University Washington College of Law. He is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, where he served as an Editor of the Harvard Law Review. 
 

Earlier this year, Congressman Raskin released his New York Times number one best-selling memoir, Unthinkable: Trauma, Truth, and the Trials of American Democracy, which documents the forty-five days at the start of 2021 as he is confronted with the painful loss of his son to suicide, the violent insurrection in our nation's Capitol, and leading the impeachment effort of President Trump. 

 

A word about our venue: 

History Cambridge, formerly Cambridge Historical Society, founded in 1905 to offer a place for amateur history enthusiasts to present lectures and collect historical documents and artifacts. Their current exhibition "Forgotten Souls of Tory Row: Remembering the Enslaved People of Brattle Street," honors the enslaved adults and children who lived and worked on this land as well as those whose labor on Caribbean plantations helped finance the grand homes of white Tory Row elites.
