What has Raskin been up to in recent times?

The Washington Post notes that Raskin obtained a guilty plea in a case with parallels to the Trump case “only two weeks ago.”

Based on the Post’s initial reporting of Raskin’s participation in the Trump case, Esquire describes what Raskin does as follows: “Raskin takes people to trial, and Raskin puts them in jail. That is his behavior. That is his specialty. He has heads adorning his walls.”

Trump and his attorneys have repeatedly asserted the former president’s innocence in relation to the inquiry. In the meanwhile, Politico reports that Raskin originally worked on cases associated with the inquiry into the events of January 6, 2021.

“His involvement in the Mar-a-Lago investigation emphasizes its relevance,” the outlet says.

Where did his name originate?

The surname Raskin is not rare, therefore an increase in Google queries on whether or not Jamie and David are related is understandable in light of the aforementioned Post article.

According to Forebears, approximately 8,000 individuals carry the surname. Intriguingly, the country with the highest concentration of Raskins is Belgium, even though over half of them reside in the United States. Israel has 800, Russia 700.

Depending on where an individual’s genealogical line can be traced, the name appears to have two unique origins. According to Family Tree DNA, some Raskins are of Russian and/or Polish origin. The name is derived from the Yiddish diminutive form of the name Rachel, “Raske.”

The website adds, however, that Raskin is also a diminutive variant of the Dutch and Belgian name Erasmus. Which presumably explains the name’s prevalence in western European countries.
