For all their fulmination against Republican election deniers, media outlets are ignoring how many Democrats are being promoted after this month’s election.
Take Jamie Raskin, the Maryland Congressman who is in line to be ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee. In 2021, he led the second Trump impeachment effort, in 2017, he was the second House Democrat to attempt to block Trump’s electoral votes from being counted. He then wanted to impeach Trump only four months into his term.
Then there is Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York, who with Nancy Pelosi stepping down is the clear frontrunner to become House Democratic leader. Jeffries has a long history of election denial.
Despite this record, Trump’s first press secretary Sean Spicer noted in a tweet that Jeffries got the kid glove treatment from Jake Tapper of CNN last Sunday.
