Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Freebeacon.com: “Cohen Pushes Pelosi to Impeach Trump Because He's 'Raping the Country'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rep. Steve Cohen (D., Tenn.) on Monday called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, accusing him of "raping the country."

Cohen stood up and yelled for Trump to be impeached during a Democratic Steering and Policy Committee meeting with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), prompting Pelosi to push back saying, "This is not about politics, it's about what's best for the American people," according to Politico.

Cohen, who voted to move impeachment proceedings forward in December 2017, also brought up former President Bill Clinton's impeachment proceedings during the committee hearing, saying he faced impeachment "over sex." He went on to contrast Clinton and Trump by accusing the latter of "raping the country," a quote that was confirmed by Cohen after the meeting.

Pelosi again pushed back against Cohen's assertion that she was afraid impeachment would cost the Democrats a majority in the House.

"This isn’t about politics at all. It’s about patriotism. It’s about the strength we need to have to see things through," Pelosi said, according to aides in the room who spoke to Politico.
