Rep. Cohen Calls Defecting Democrat ‘Traitor to the Majority’

Sunday on CNN, impeachment-obsessed Rep. Steve Cohen angrily smeared his Democrat colleague Rep. Jeff Van Drew as a “traitor” for defecting to the Republican Party over the sham impeachment.

“[I] think Jeff Van Drew is making a serious mistake,” Cohen said. “I understand that he feels if he votes against impeachment, he’ll lose in a Democratic primary and he could. But you know he got elected with Democratic votes under a Democratic banner which he ran under for 30 years or so. I think he was a senator and a mayor and a representative and all, and he got Democratic money… And to turn and go to be a Republican, it’s kind of strange. I’ve heard of rats jumping off a sinking ship, but very few of them jump onto a sinking ship.”

“The lowest thing that there is in the Congress is somebody in the minority side who was a traitor to the majority. This is not good for his district,” he continued.

Cohen’s desperate reaction demonstrates that it is his Party, not the Republicans’, that is the sinking ship.
