The Unselect January 6th Committee is more corrupt than we even first knew. They have trampled on the constitutional rights of the people they call to testify and have ignored the horrific state of the political prisoners being held in Washington D.C who’s human rights have been violated. Now, its been revealed that one of the high profile members of the committee failed to disclose stock trades and even worse, blamed it on his dead son. Further, the member’s wife who has been nominated to be the nation’s top banking regulator in the Federal Reserve holds far left views on banking regulation and climate change, all while her husband violates stock disclosure laws in plain view. Business Insider Reports–
Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland violated a federal conflict-of-interest law by failing to properly disclose stock shares his wife received for advising a Colorado-based financial technology trust company.
The congressman likewise disclosed information about the sale of Reserve Trust stock eight months after Sarah Bloom Raskin dumped the stock in late 2020 for $1.5 million, an Insider analysis of federal records indicates.
This violation of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act‘s disclosure provisions, which exist to promote transparency and defend against financial conflicts, comes at a time of significant national attention for the Raskins.

Jamie Raskin, who acknowledged he was late filing the portion of the disclosure about the sale and said it happened because of his son’s death, is a prominent congressman who led the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Sarah Bloom Raskin is President Joe Biden’s nominee to fill the position of the government’s most powerful banking regulator and faced a key Senate panel on Thursday.
Rep. Jamie Raskin’s wife, Sarah Raskin, is being considered for a prominent position in the Federal Reserve as the top banking regulator. She holds far left views on the economy and banking regulation despite her husband’s corruption:
“If confirmed, Sarah Bloom Raskin would become vice chairwoman of supervision at the, after having held top-level jobs at the US Treasury and the Fed during the Obama administration.
Yet she faces an uncertain confirmation path among Republicans and conservative Democrats in a narrowly divided Senate given that she has called for harsher financial regulations aimed at combating the climate crisis and supports tougher oversight on big banks.
The omission from congressional reports of the shares she held in Reserve Trust is likely to hand another round of ammunition to Republicans, who want to stall Biden’s nominees. At least one conservative watchdog group is already questioning whether she used her past Fed connections to help the fintech trust, and Sen. Cynthia Lummis, a Republican of Wyoming, brought it up during Thursday’s hearing.”
