A Democratic congressman became the latest legislator to draft impeachment articles against President Trump, saying he failed to adequately delineate between neo-Nazis and their opponents in Charlottesville.
Rep. Steve Cohen of Memphis said in a statement that “If the president can’t recognize the difference between these domestic terrorists and the people who oppose their anti-American attitudes, then he cannot defend us.”
Cohen said the images from the Virginia violence reminded him of Kristallnacht, or the “Night of Broken Glass,” when German Nazis rounded up Jews.
He said Trump was wrong to say there “were very fine people on both sides,” responding that “There are no good Klansmen.”
Cohen praised responses by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), who admonished Trump for not making an adequate case against the violence.
