As a member of the important House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Cohen plays a crucial role in oversight of the Executive Branch and a check and balance on possible wrongdoings or overreaches. He has already overseen testimony from Attorney General William Barr, Michael Cohen, and other members of the Trump administration. As calls for impeachment continue to grow following the Mueller report, Congressman Cohen has become a lead voice for a vigorous approach to these investigations.
Congressman Steve Cohen has represented Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District since 2007. His thoughtful legislation on civil rights and justice has distinguished him throughout his tenure, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi dubbing him “the conscience of the freshman class” in 2008. Prior to his election to the United States House of Representatives, he served for 24 years in the Tennessee State Senate. He currently serves several House Committees including the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Judiciary Committee, where he serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties.
