After describing Trump’s conduct, Congressman Cohen said:

“This is subverting the Constitution and threatening our national security. I commend Speaker Pelosi for calling for an impeachment inquiry. It’s the right time. It’s the right issue. This is an egregious subversion of our Constitution. Long may the United States survive and live as a true democracy.”

Congressman Cohen has been a leader in the House Judiciary Committee’s ongoing impeachment inquiry and has been in the forefront of Members calling for the President’s impeachment. He introduced Articles of Impeachment in 2017.
