House Democrat Steve Cohen (TN) on Tuesday submitted a resolution calling for the impeachment of Attorney General William Barr.
Cohen has been calling for Barr’s impeachment for over a week saying “he is reigning terror on the rule of law.”
Now, he’s formally submitted a resolution.
“Today, I introduced #HRes1032, which would authorize an impeachment inquiry into Attorney General Barr,” Cohen tweeted.
“He has politicized the DOJ, undermined the rule of law, abused his power, obstructed justice [and] violated the first amendment,” the Democrat added. “He is not fit to be Attorney General.”
We know the Obama admin weaponized the DOJ & FBI for political gain.
Instead of condemning this bare-faced corruption, Democrats are vilifying AG Barr for bringing it to light and for working to hold those involved accountable.
This is an absurdity.https://t.co/pIlLqTiMX3

Perhaps this clown should concentrate on serving the people of Tennessee rather than wielding impeachment as a political weapon every time something happens that he disagrees with.
Cohen’s main points of contention lie in Barr’s reduction of sentencing for Roger Stone, something he calls a “travesty,” and the attorney General’s alleged role in a decision to remove rioters from Lafayette Square during a protest last month.
But Cohen has little to no support for the effort from more prominent Democrats.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) called any effort to impeach Barr a “waste of time,” while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) dismissed it by saying “let’s solve our problems by going to the polls and voting on Election Day.”
But then, she said that prior to the last election as well.
House Democrats just introduced a resolution to impeach the Attorney General.
Are you kidding me?
Bill Barr is cleaning up the mess that Obama, Biden, and Comey created!

Cohen’s actions, just like those taken by Democrats who tried to reverse the election of 2016 by impeaching the President, is all for show. He’s a nut, who likes to dance to please his radical base.
This is, after all, the same clown who attempted to insult Attorney General Barr last May when he refused to show up to a sham House Judiciary Committee hearing.
Cohen, you see, wanted to mock Barr as a chicken, and he did so very, very subtly …

Cohen previously butted heads with Pelosi over Trump’s impeachment, pushing her by saying it was the ‘patriotic’ thing to do.
You’d think the people of Tennessee would be embarrassed by this man.
