Cohen Tells It!

Posted By on Wed, Jul 26, 2017 at 7:23 PM

In which Memphis’ Democratic congressman Steve Cohen, addressing an apparent GOP effort to muddy the waters on the Russian inquiry not only takes no crap but gives it back where it came from. This is worth watching from beginning to end — even for those who might disagree on the politics of the matter.

The specific context here is not as important as the general one, which seems to have been an attempt by Republicans on the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to shift that committee’s inquiry from a matter of Russia’s interference in an American election to some putative policy misdeeds by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State or to President Obama’s involvement in her presidential campaign. The congressman takes no quarter but gives a solid gold lecture.
