Rep. Steve Cohen Tells Republicans Trump Should Already Be In Prison During Barr Contempt Hearing

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) slammed Trump’s Republican enablers and told them that individual one would already be in prison if he weren’t president.

Steve Cohen drops the reality hammer on Trump’s defenders

Rep. Cohen said, “Why would he be financially dependent on the Russians? Well, we now know he lost over $1 billion over a decade in the ’80s and ’90s. He was broke. No bank would lend him a penny. If it weren’t for him being president, he would be in prison with Michael Cohen today as individual one, and he obstructed justice as the Mueller report says so. We are in danger. We need to respond. And we need to act for the people of the United States of America.”

Trump has already been implicated in multiple felonies related to the Stormy Daniels hush money payments. Republicans don’t want to hear it, but their president is a criminal. Nothing that Rep. Cohen said was untrue. Trump was broke. His tax returns prove it. His father was dead. No banks in the United States would loan him money. Trump got money from somewhere, and the Trump family has already admitted that Russia bankrolled their projects.

The investigations into Trump are not just legitimate. They are vital to the safety of US democracy.

Republicans have sold themselves out to the Trump mythology and crime wave, but Democrats are hanging tough as the line of defense for American freedom.
