Watch: Jamie Raskin blasts the GOP's 'moral agnosticism'
WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 09: Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) testifies during the first hearing of the Weaponization of the Federal Government subcommittee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill on February 09, 2023 in Washington, DC. This was the first hearing of the new subcommittee, created by a sharply divided Congress to scrutinize what Republican members have charged is an effort by the federal government to target and silence conservatives.

United States Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland) fired back at Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) on Wednesday afternoon after Boebert accused President Joe Biden of lying. Boebert also implied that determining objective truths is impossible.

"The distinguished gentle lady from Colorado posed a question that I've been hearing my Republican colleagues utter over the last several days. Who decides what is true or false? How can we know what is true or false? And the gentle lady confided her fear that the federal government would end up defining what's true or false," Raskin said.

"Well, my, my, my. That's an absolute assault on the Constitution of the United States because we have an entire federal judiciary, which is based on people getting up in court and swearing an oath under God or the Constitution, to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And the whole point of what federal courts do is to determine what's true and what's false," Raskin continued. "And yet now we have an entire political party, which is organizing itself around this radical moral agnosticism, claiming that there's no way we can know the difference between whether an election is on Tuesday or whether an election is on Thursday, as Vladimir Putin wants to tell us through his sinister propaganda put out by the Internet Research Agency. The whole judicial system is based on the difference between truth and lies."
