    Rep. Steve Cohen on Tuesday said Attorney General Bill Barr and the Justice Department allowed to Jeffrey Epstein to 'conveniently' commit suicide when he was in jail last summer and was the highest profile inmate in the country. Cohen, a Democrat, was tearing into Barr as part of a heated afternoon of hearings on Capitol Hill where the AG defended the federal government's tough response to protests around the country over racism and police brutality. Cohen was talking about the federal police in Portland - who have been clashing with determined protesters - and said they, like the guards who...

    A House Democrat who’s a frequent critic of the Trump administration submitted a resolution Tuesday calling for the impeachment of Attorney General William Barr. House Resolution 1032, filed by U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee, accuses the nation’s top law enforcement officer of using his job to pursue political goals. “Today, I introduced #HRes1032, which would authorize an impeachment inquiry into Attorney General Barr,” Cohen wrote on Twitter. “He has politicized the DOJ, undermined the rule of law, abused his power, obstructed justice & violated the first amendment. He is not fit to be Attorney General.”

    A number of House Democrats are gearing up to stage protests against President Trump's State of the Union address once again Tuesday, this time after voting to impeach him. Female Democrats are reprising their coordinated white outfits to show solidarity with women, and, as in years past, at least a handful of lawmakers are considering or planning to boycott Trump's speech in the House chamber entirely. **SNIP** Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), who introduced articles of impeachment against Trump in 2017, skipped the last two State of the Union addresses. He told The Hill that he has no intention to "go...

    A third House Democrat announced plans on Monday to boycott President Trump's Tuesday State of the Union address, which will take place a day before the Senate is expected to acquit the president in his impeachment trial. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), who also skipped Trump's previous State of the Union addresses, said that he will not be attending the speech on Tuesday. “I have chosen not to dignify Trump’s parade of lies about health care, his persistent exaggeration, and his personal attacks with my attendance at this year’s State of the Union Address. His appalling performances each day continue to...

    House Democratic leaders were successful Wednesday in staving off a bid to impeach President Trump, but the effort is far from dead. A handful of Democrats added their names last week to the long list of lawmakers now endorsing an impeachment inquiry, growing the tally to more than a third of the caucus. Rep. Al Green, the Texas Democrat who forced last week's impeachment vote, is threatening to revisit the issue later this cycle. And Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), who had introduced articles of impeachment in the last Congress, says he plans to do so again, likely after the long...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, yelled at an African-American woman today, accusing her of “ignorance,” after she testified before a Congressional committee about abortion being the “leading cause of death in the black community today.” Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), suggested it’s disingenuous to conflate abortion with social ills. Parker was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice as it discussed legislation banning abortions on babies with beating hearts.

    Remember when the media kept insisting that Palin's map was a death threat? Nothing to see here. Though. Right? Rep.

Cohen, who sits on one of the main House committees charged with investigating the president and his administration. Cohen told CNN on Thursday that Democrats had a "moral imperative" to impeach the president. "I think impeachment proceedings will help see that he is beaten but that’s not the reason to do it – I think we have a moral imperative to bring...

    While giving a press conference in Japan, President Donald Trump confirmed that he agreed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that former Vice President Joe Biden is a “low-IQ individual.” And some Republicans did not like it. Peter King, New York congressman: @RepPeteKing Wrong for @POTUS Trump to criticize @JoeBiden in Japan and to agree with Kim Jong-un. Politics stops at water’s edge. Never right to side with murderous dictator vs. fellow American. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina senator, when asked if he was disappointed by Trump’s response: “Yes, I don’t think it is very helpful to agree with Kim...

    Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) on Tuesday said President Trump should not be allowed to attend next week’s D-Day anniversary event after Trump sided with North Korean leader Kim Jon Un in his criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden. “Disgusting display by Trump. No mention of #MemorialDay. He shouldn’t be allowed at anniversary of D-Day June 6. I was there Sunday. What an honor to recall what brave Americans did for freedom,” Cohen tweeted Tuesday. Cohen cited recent comments by Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.), who called out Trump’s remarks about Biden, but also asked where the rest of the GOP...

    The witness rose from her seat, raised her right hand, and swore to tell the truth before Congress. But four words were missing: “So help me God.” In the House of Representatives, to the winner go the spoils, and Democrats, the new decision makers, control everything, including what legislation gets a vote and the minutiae of procedural choices, such as whether witnesses must utter the traditional plea for divine aid. Democratic chairmen and chairwomen of several key committees have deemed no such entreaty is necessary. “I think God belongs in religious institutions: in temple, in church, in cathedral, in mosque...

    Mega Thanks to greasy-chinned Rep. Steve Cohen for coming came up with the best slogan of them all for Democrats in the 2020 race: ‘Pigs in the Trough’! Add an ’s’ to the viral ‘Pig in the Trough’ picture of Democrat Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen pigging out on the colonel’s Kentucky Fried Chicken on the day after Attorney General William Barr’s Senate testimony. It’s the picture that best describes Democrats on the 2020 campaign trail. Pigs in the Trough Democrats will demolish anything and anybody if it gains them soul-crushing power.

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” House Judiciary Committee member Steve Cohen (D-TN) stated that if Attorney General William Barr doesn’t comply with the committee’s subpoenas, the committee has “no other alternative” but to use the sergeant at arms to bring Barr to the House. Cohen said, “I hope it would be inherent contempt. Because in inherent contempt, we’d go out, take him, and bring him in, and have him personally brought to the House.” Host Anderson Cooper asked, “You actually want to send out the sergeant at arms and force the attorney general to come?” Cohen answered, “Yes. Because...

    Attorney General William Barr’s refusal to appear before the House Judiciary Committee Thursday is giving critics plenty of ammunition, but few are taking advantage of the opportunity like Rep. Steve Cohen. The Tennessee Democrat held a press conference this morning before the Committee met, calling the attorney general “Chicken Barr” while holding a ceramic hen. After he took his seat, though, things got especially surreal. Cohen, once he placed his ceramic chicken in full view on his podium, pulled out a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken and began to chow down on it. It was not yet 9 a.m. As...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Janaury 6, 2019 | Byron York |
    Newly sworn-in Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib electrified progressives with her passionate declaration that she and her colleagues will " impeach the mother******" — the "mother*****," of course, being President Trump. Democratic leaders were embarrassed that a high-profile freshman would speak so frankly in public. But hours before Tlaib spoke, on the first day of Democratic control of the House, another Democrat, Rep. Brad Sherman, filed a resolution of impeachment. Sherman's resolution was later co-sponsored by another colleague, Democratic Rep. Al Green. The efforts by Sherman and Green, who filed his own articles in 2017, and another House Democrat, Rep. Steve...

    Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tn.), a vocal critic of President Trump, on Thursday introduced two bills to eliminate the electoral college and prevent presidents from pardoning themselves or their family members. Cohen introduced the constitutional amendments on the first night of the 116th Congress, both digs at Trump. “Presidents should not pardon themselves, their families, their administration or campaign staff," Cohen said in a statement. "This constitutional amendment would expressly prohibit this and any future president, from abusing the pardon power.” The amendments are unlikely to pass since they require a two-thirds vote in both houses of Congress and then must...

The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director John...
