Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) just received some unfavorable legal news for his persistent attacks on a crucial witness for Biden.

Anthony Bobulinski, a distinguished Navy veteran and previous business partner of the Biden family, is suing Raskin. In the case, which was submitted today, Raskin is charged with spreading false information and defaming Bobulinski by calling him a “Chinese or Russian spy” and a Trump campaign puppet, among other things.

According to the allegation, which was described in court documents, Raskin has been accused of using his position to “deliberately besmirch” Bobulinski’s reputation in an attempt to divert attention away from alleged wrongdoing by the Biden family. The lawsuit claims that because Raskin did these things beyond the bounds of his official responsibilities, he could be held personally liable.

The complainant in the case, Anthony “Tony” Bobulinski, has gained notoriety in political circles for his allegations about the Biden family’s economic contacts with foreign countries, particularly China. Despite public denials, Bobulinski claimed to have been introduced to Joe Biden by his son Hunter and to have been aware of emails and conversations suggesting the former Vice President was involved in his son’s business endeavors.

Bobulinski’s complaint is a result of remarks made by Raskin in a broadcast interview on MSNBC and on social media. In these remarks, Raskin mocked the notion that witnesses such as Bobulinski were actually foreign agents, thus undermining their credibility. In addition to asking for a jury trial, the lawsuit requests $20 million in damages for purported harm to Bobulinski’s reputation and mental health.

In a March hearing of the House Oversight Committee, Bobulinski made a caustic speech directed at Democratic Representatives Dan Goldman (D-NY) and Barbara Raskin. As Bobulinski accused both congressmen of spreading lies about the Biden family’s business dealings, the tension increased and Raskin took notice.

“They continue to lie directly to the American people without hesitation and remorse,” Bobulinski said last month. “Rep. Dan Goldman and Jamie Raskin, both lawyers, and Mr. Goldman, a former prosecutor with the SDNY from New York, will continue to lie today in this hearing and then go straight to the media to tell more lies.”

Bobulinski continued, “Hunter Biden’s defense attorney, Abbe Lowell, weaponizes letters to Congress to try to smear my name and make the cold hard facts in an attempt to save his powerfully connected client and his father. I challenged Mr. Lowell to make those claims on national television so he can be held accountable for his lies.”

Legal experts predict that this case will challenge the boundaries of public officials’ freedom of expression as well as the protections provided by the U.S. Constitution’s expression or Debate Clause, and that it will be important. Raskin, a former law professor and President Trump’s lead manager during his second impeachment trial, has not yet publicly addressed the accusations.

The March hearing was intended to discuss the business transactions of the Biden family, but it turned into a spectacular display of personal charges and political conflict. Rep. Jim Jordan’s direct request to Bobulinski to identify “The Big Guy,” an enigmatic character mentioned in correspondence about the Biden family’s financial activities, was a turning point. Bobulinski’s answer was clear-cut: “Joe Biden.”

Jordan demanded further details in an effort to establish the accusation beyond a reasonable doubt. You sure? he enquired.

“I’m 1000% sure,” Bobulinski confidently affirmed leaving no room for doubt in his statement.

As a vocal opponent of the Trump administration, Raskin is going through a difficult moment as a result of the legal dispute. Some have hailed him as a hero for his involvement in the impeachment hearings and ensuing probes, while others have set him as a target.
