Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen to Anti-Trump FBI Lovebird: ‘Mr. Strzok, If I Could Give You a Purple Heart, I Would’

Even reporter Aaron Blake of the Washington Post seemed stunned at what came out of the mouth of Tennessee’s own Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN-09).

CBS has a slightly more detailed report. Evidently cohen believes the hearings are little more than a distraction and went out of  his way to praise Strzok.

Rep. Cohen says this hearing is just a distraction.

“If I could give you a purple heart, I would,” Rep. Steve Cohen said, calling the hearing an “attack” on Strzok.

Cohen criticized the hearing as a distraction from Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and a way to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“It’s astonishing to me that you would be put on trial as you have today,” Cohen said, praising Strzok’s work in security.

The above may come as no surprise to those familiar with Rep. Cohen, no friend of President Donald Trump. Just yesterday he called for an end to all public spending at any business owned by Trump. He appears to be on as much of a crusade against Trump as allegedly was then FBI agent and prolific anti-Trump texter, Peter Strzok.

A Tennessee congressman is calling for the federal government to stop spending money at businesses owned by President Donald Trump.

Representative Steve Cohen (TN-09) says he introduced the amendments because such spending “violates a Constitutional anti-corruption provision that prohibit any President from receiving funding from the federal government beyond his salary.”

Cohen issued the following statement announcing the introduction of the amendments:

“As a member of Congress, it’s my duty to protect and defend the Constitution, and that’s what I’m trying to do by preventing further violations of the charter’s Emoluments Clauses. The Clauses explicitly prohibit the kind of private profiteering this President has been engaged in since taking office without placing his business interests in a blind trust, or divesting, as his predecessors have done. Congress has an obligation to prevent these clear violations. I intend to attempt to amend every annual spending bill with this prohibition.”

The Tennessee GOP reacted to the increasingly unhinged far left Democrat from Memphis, saying that Rep. Cohen is “no stranger to speaking out of line,” adding:

… however his statement today that a disgraced FBI agent who is currently being questioned by Congress is deserving of a Purple Heart is an insult to our veterans who have put their lives on the line for this country and our freedoms.

The Purple Heart is sacred and its recipients and their families deserve better than for Rep. Cohen casually using its significance to score cheap political points.

      Bredesen Never needs to hold another office in our State of Tennessee. He was all for Obama, and only increased sales tax, property tax.

    What an a** !

    Steve Cohen, if I could, I’d give you a brain, but what a waste for a head as ugly as yours. Is it your goal to reach the utmost height of depravity? I think you’re there already stupid.

  13. Angelito

    No wonder Memphis is a cesspool. It is ruled by maggots like Cohen.

  14. Austin

    Steve Cohen is about a rotten Communist as they come!

  15. Steve Cohen is more of a black eye on TN that poverty and meth, combined. Congratulations, Dems.

    Wonder what Cohen smells when he walks into a walmart store? He is a disgrace to congress. I can’t believe people are ignorant enough to keep voting for him. I would like to see a cache of his emails. He is in the same catagory as California and New York, sore losers. He is so dumb, he does not know for what reason a Purple Heart is issued. Made a total idiot of the State of Tennessee.

    1. You are so right, James Morgan. I was thinking the same about the Purple Heart. I’m sure glad he has no responsibility in issuing medals to active servicemen, or veterans. Surely it shouldn’t make you proud to be in his district in West Tennessee. HE IS THE TOTAL IDIOT. Not the state of TN.

    Steve Cohen is beyond the pale. Visit TN09, his District. He makes Maxine Waters look sane.

  18. Jose Reva

    Cohen is disgusting and exactly the problem with Memphis.
