Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the first Jewish congressman ever elected in Tennessee, will be running in a fundamentally new 9th Congressional District this year without a strong base of support from the Jewish community in Memphis.

Cohen’s Statement on President Trump’s Decision to Withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement
[MEMPHIS, TN] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), a member of the House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition, today released the following statement after President Trump announced that the United States would be withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement. “Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement represents a backslide on U.S. and global climate goals, a neglect for U.S. interests both domestic and abroad, and a neglect of leadership by the Trump Administration. For all of its shortcomings, the Trump Administration ought to have little difficulty grasping the severe economic impact of retreating from the Paris Climate Agreement.” “By joining our allies in the agreement, the United States stood to save $5.3 trillion from subsidizing the negative effects associated with paying the healthcare costs from exposure to pollution. Instead of committing 6.5% of our GDP to subsidizing fossil fuel industries and cleaning up their pollutants, that portion of wealth amassed
Constitution and Civil Justice Ranking Member Cohen’s Statement on Former FBI Director James Comey’s Written Testimony
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, today released the following statement on former FBI Director James Comey’s written testimony to be delivered tomorrow morning to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence: “I was disturbed after reading former FBI Director James Comey’s written testimony about his interactions with President Donald Trump. Based on Comey’s account, it appears that the President attempted to intimidate the FBI Director and influence the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, which is part of the larger investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, including any connection between the Trump campaign and the Russians. The President’s engagement with then-FBI Director James Comey nine times in one-on-one conversations coupled with his reported efforts to personally engage with Director of Nati
Remembering the legacy of Robert F. Kennedy
“And now it’s on to Chicago, and let’s win there,” Senator Robert F. Kennedy triumphantly declared during his speech after a decisive victory in the California Democratic primary on June 5, 1968. It had become clear that Kennedy would be the Democratic nominee for the 1968 presidential election. He had inspired a generation of young people to get involved in politics and galvanized a Democratic Party still reeling from the loss of his brother President John F. Kennedy five years earlier. But as Senator Kennedy walked out of the Ambassador Hotel ballroom that night, shots rang out. Robert Kennedy’s life was tragically lost and a beacon of hope for a generation of young Americans was extinguished. Our nation would be forever changed. Just two months later, the controversial nomination of Hubert Humphrey as the Democratic candidate at the 1968 Chicago Democratic National Convention sparked several nights of demonstrations and riots. The convention damaged the trust the Demo
