Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) took a swipe at President Trump Monday on conspiracy network MSNBC, where he claimed that Trump is as destructive as the fire ripping through Notre Dame.

Cohen is obsessed with harassing President Trump and will say anything for attention to keep the hate and division flaming.

While Rep. Cohen spewed his rhetoric on MSNBC, host Chris Matthews listened with infatuation.

“I think there’s a case for obstruction. I think there’s a case for emoluments violation.” Then, Cohen proudly boasted about filing “articles of impeachment” last year. “I haven’t brought them up this year, but we’re getting so far along– seeing what this presidents done.”

“What he has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame. He’s torching the entire structure of government and the people’s respect for it, and Congress needs to act.,” Cohen claimed.

This is coming from a Congressman who represents Memphis, Tennessee and is doing nothing to “act” for his own district. (Videos Below)

Rep. Cohen also discussed the upcoming release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which is expected to become public this Thursday.

He said he believes there’s evidence of obstruction and he believes that the report will detail ‘shady’ deals with Russia and President Trump. However, Cohen explained that the information revealed may not be enough to indict the President on conspiracy charges.

Cohen said that Attorney General William Barr’s timing is suspicious coming just ahead of Easter and the Jewish holiday of Passover.
