Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) told CNN’s ‘Newsroom’ on Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi needs to do the “patriotic” thing and impeach President Trump.
Cohen, who’s well-known for using ridiculous hyperbole to make his points, added that the President was acting like a “reckless gangster” and insinuated removing him from office would be “a heavenly cause.”
That’s right, the party of infanticide and radical anti-American politics wants you to believe that their resistance cause is one backed by patriotism and God.
Discussion of impeachment during his CNN interview hinged on an earlier closed-door exchange Cohen had with Pelosi, in which the California Democrat denied accusations that she would not pursue action against the President for political reasons.
“This isn’t about politics at all,” Pelosi told the fringe members of her party demanding action. “It’s about patriotism.”
“She needs to do what’s right,” Cohen fired back during Thursday’s segment. “She says that she’s doing this because of patriotism, not politics. It’s hard to see that. I mean, patriotism would say jump into hell for a heavenly cause.”
Now let’s cover abortion with your ‘heavenly cause’ BS.

Cohen pressed further, challenging Pelosi to impeach the President – for America!
“You have a Constitution, and you have a rule of law, and it’s being destroyed in a reckless gangster manner, you need to act,” he claimed. “I think … the only reason not to act is because of politics.”
Pelosi Not Patriotic
Host Poppy Harlow, surprised, said “It sounds like you’re saying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not being patriotic. Is that right?”
“No, not necessarily,” he responded after clearly stating that he was, necessarily.

“You’re saying she’s putting politics above patriotism in this instance?” Harlow pressed further.
Cohen replied, “I hate to get into it with Nancy. Nancy and I have a great relationship, and I’m not going to spoil that.”
Crikey – in accusing her of hiding behind politics he’s practically saying she’s acting like, well … a chicken. Get that man a bucket of chicken!
Cohen’s Reckless Gangster Rhetoric
The Representative from Tennessee has a long history of being reckless with his words, a misunderstanding with what they mean that would make Ilhan Omar blush.
Earlier this week, Cohen incorrectly stated that former President Bill Clinton faced impeachment proceedings “over sex” while President Trump is “raping the country.”
@RepCohen is a trash human being.
A) Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice.
B) Attorney General says no obstruction of justice by @realDonaldTrump.
C) Always smart to belittle actual victims of rape, you dolt. pic.twitter.com/RmmbkjXTAF

Cohen introduced articles of impeachment in 2017 over the President’s reaction to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which has been proven to be a media-generated hoax.
Lying doesn’t seem to be a very heavenly cause, Mr. Cohen. And claiming the President of the United States is “raping the country” doesn’t seem very patriotic.
Censuring you for being perpetually loose with your words and accusations though, might be. Come on, Nancy, do the patriotic thing and shut this man down.

Thank you, America. For the last 2 decades I have been cringing every time one of our politicians opens his/ her mouth. But they appear positively normal when compared to some of your little beauties, mostly your Democrats.
There would be nothing patriotic about Impeaching the President.
Wish that worm would choke on a chicken bone
Maybe the Senate needs to look into this guys tax records and bank information. Seems like any excuse works. Just fire off a subpoena and see what he does.
The demonazis are in full cover up mode. Now let’s demand their financial records and 10 years of tax returns. Especially from Schiff, Nadler, and Gatormouth Waters.
Chicken Man is too crazy to be in charge of anything.
Vote him out, too crazy, too nuts!
What a bunch of buffoons! They’re like a pack of mad dogs that won’t let go of Trump’s leg. Trump 2020!!!!
Cohen, like most of the Democrat leadership in this country are anti-American to the core. Everything they stand for is in stark contrast to the US Constitution and what our forefathers set to create, the greatest country the earth has ever known.
What does being Jewish have to do with it or even being in the South (Cohen was born in Memphis)? Would you make the same comment about an Episcopal or Methodist? That was a very bigoted statement that wasn’t needed! Memphis has always been strongly Democrat as Steve was preceded by Harold Ford, Jr. who followed his father who took the seat when the District was created in 1983. I do NOT like or agree with Cohen and find many of his statements reprehensible, such as wish Senator Marsha Blackburn (R – TN) would jump off a bridge.
Ironic, a jew politician in the south. Although Tennessee is highly conservative, the big cities like Memphis and Nashville are infected with Liberalism, mostly due to relocating leftists who destroyed “their” states (Ca and NY specifically) and are now moving to Tennessee to pollute that state. The “natives” hate them.
Cohen is just plain nasty and always has been!
This is why we need term limits. The old fool cohen is senile and demented. Dems hate Trump so much they are trying everything to take him down ILLEGALLY i might add. Dems are not doing their jobs that they are paid to do. They are so obsessed. They’re all nuts.
All of theses thugs are guilty of treason per the constitution he says he wants Pelosi to use. They should all be charged with treason.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave

TDS is real. It has infected the majority of the lefty lemmings in this country. They need serious professional help.
Is it just ME, or are Left Liberal Loonies becoming uglier innards and outtards,, more erratic, deranged and babbling? Being coherent for the last three plus years is obviously not a requirement for being a Democrat! Which may explain why so many Donkephant Rino’s are jumping the fence they’ve been straddling for decades! The next five years, we are ALL going to see how well God and our President works together! President Trump has his feet planted solidly on the GROUND God created! Hike up the straps of your Osh-Gosh’s! This next 5.5 years will be a game-changer and a way-maker!
Why haven’t the republicans offered impeachment of Rep.Steven Cohen for his actions and being stupid. But we know the ball-less republicans in the house of representatives will do nothing but sit on their thumbs and complain.
I SAW HIM TOO!!
I saw this guy in a line up of child molesters in NYC at the 12th street station.
Hell, he’s a Dumbassrat isn’t he !!!!
Agree that the Dems in Congress are concerned what will come out with a full investigation and declassification. Are they afraid their names and/or their staff names might appear somewhere in those documents? Are they afraid that some of the tactics used against Hillary rival, Candidate Trump, were used against Bernie (in addition to the DNC putting their thumb on the scales)? We may find out more was going on to ‘weaponize’ the DOJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, etc. than previously known.
I wonder if this elected official has read the U.S. Constitution and understands it? President Clinton was impeached and had 11 felonies, but, the Democrat held Senate wouldn’t convict??? So what do the House Democrats have that the Republican held Senate might actually convict a sitting President?
I think it’s more likely that the Democrats are afraid of what AG Barr is going to reveal concerning the previous administration and “We the People” are going to ask why Congress allowed it to happen…
What’s patriotic about impeachment without a crime !
So, their blatant attempt to stage a COMPLETELY unconstitutional coup d’etat by LAWYER to overthrow a duly elected American President was motivated by “patriotism,” and not the brand of TOXIC, America-hating politics which pretty much motivates EVERYTHING ELSE these connving Dems do? Yeah . . . right.
That chicken has come home to roooossstt.
YEAH ,this from chicken little(the sky is falling
