Unfortunately, Rep. Steve Cohen is on the committee questioning FBI chief Peter Strzok today.
You know that assures that idiotic statements reflecting poorly on Memphians will be flowing from his clown pie hole.
Cohen began by telling Strzok, “If I could give you a purple heart, I would.”
Then he riffed on how bad the Russians are and how instrumental Strzok has been “dedicating” his career to finding Russian interference in America. (By the way, isn’t that more the CIA’s job than the FBI? Talk about mission creep.)
Cohen continued, “It’s astonishing to me that you would be put on trial like this today. We don’t want young people seeing things that put bad things about the FBI and the DOJ on the front page.”
He railed at the Republicans, saying they “won’t accept what the Inspector General said, that he found no bias…there is no reason for this hearing, no reason at all, but it puts it on the front page…the Russians are loving it.”
Cohen wasn’t finished. He accused Republicans of trying to influence the people who watch Fox News. I’m surprised he didn’t pull out the dated slur “Faux News.” This is “nothing but a ruse to make people think the Mueller examination is biased.”
Being the hipster he is, Cohen then referenced a 1992 movie. “Like Jack Nicholson in ‘A Few Good Men,’ you can’t handle the truth,” he said of the committee, “and the truth is this is the most corrupt administration ever and it will be exposed by Robert Mueller thank God.”
Cohen swims in the corrupt swamp, so he’d find it hard to identify corruption, wouldn’t he?
Actor James Wood took offense to what Cohen said and tweeted: “How dare this squealing sycophant pig #Cohen denigrate the integrity of the Purple Heart? To what depths will #Democrats sink to protect their fellow swamp denizens?”
And Diamond and Silk tweeted: “Mr. Cohen just said that Peter Strzok deserves a medal of honor. We believe he may have gotten his words twisted and mistaken medal with metal. We say the only thing he deserves is some metal around his wrists called handcuffs.”
What an embarrassment Cohen is!
