Appearing on MSNBC, Democratic lawmaker Steve Cohen (Rep-TN.) told host Alex Witt that at least one Republican is considering supporting articles of impeachment against President Trump.
“I have one Republican that has said he is looking at it, he’s considering it,” Cohen said. “I have other Republicans just like Sen. Bob Corker suggested, who have told me on a constant basis that they know this man is not balanced, he is not capable of continuing to lead us.”
Cohen, who is an outspoken advocate for ridding of Trump, announced over the summer that he would introduce articles of impeachment against the president before the new year. At the time, he based his decision on Trump’s reaction to the violence that took place at the rally in Charlottesville, Va.
Cohen told Witt that Republicans will “privately tell you, by their words and by their expressions, that they would like to see an end to Trump’s presidency.” He continued, “But, the Republican base is still supportive of Trump. That’s who’s strong in their primaries, and politically, they can’t come out and say it”
According to Cohen, “President Trump has failed the presidential test of moral leadership.”
