Democrats have been looking for any excuse to impeach President Donald Trump since the day he was inaugurated. Now one of them thinks he has it — and Thursday he pulled the trigger.
Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee announced late Thursday morning that he will file articles of impeachment against Trump over the flimsiest "crime" in the history of impeachment.
Cohen says he's going to remove the president because Trump took too long to condemn white supremacists after Friday's murder in Charlottesville.
"I am revolted by the fact that the President of the United States couldn't stand up and unequivocally condemn Nazis who want to kill Jews and whose predecessors murdered 6 million Jews during the Holocaust," Cohen said in a statement this morning.
"No moral president would ever shy away from outright condemning hate, intolerance and bigotry," he said.
There's just one problem: President Trump condemned racism, Nazism, and the Ku Klux Klan over and over again.
His first statement called the racist riot an "egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides."
He was even clearer on Monday. Trump blasted "criminals and thugs," and he named "the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."
