STEPHANOPOULOS: The President’s former press secretary, President Trump’s former press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, appeared before your committee this week. You said that she opened up avenues of inquiry that you hadn’t thought of. Like what?

RASKIN: Well, she had a number of names that I had never heard before, and she had a few ways of looking at it.

Look, there’s – the amazing thing about what’s going on, George, is that the overwhelming majority of people, both inside and outside the Trump administration, are stepping forward to give proof that they have. And, of course, it’s their legal duty when Congress comes calling them, but it’s also kind of a civic duty and honor to do so.

And, overwhelmingly, people participated. It’s only a problem the closer you get to Donald Trump and you have a handful of people who think they are above the law like Roger Stone and Steve Bannon and Mark Meadows, once he was intimidated by Donald Trump.

But in general we get a great turnout, and we really connect all the dots.

The reasons Trump’s staff are turning on him

Former Trump staff and associates all have different reasons to turn against him, but they fall into a few general categories. There are former staff like Stephanie Grisham who are repelled by what Trump has done and have pledged to arrest him in 2024.

The second group is the one who is afraid of the effectiveness of Committee 1/6. There are plenty of former Trump employees and associates who don’t have the financial resources to fight a congressional investigation that has shown a willingness to make criminal referrals.

Trump’s staff members turn on him and provide evidence to the committee, so the failed former president who demanded full loyalty gets none of those around him.
