Democrat: 'I regretí telling Peter Strzok he deserves Purple Heart
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com ^ | July 13, 2018 | Caitlin Yilek

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said he regrets telling FBI agent Peter Strzok in Thursday’s House Judiciary and House Oversight committee hearing that he deserves a Purple Heart medal for his testimony.

“I said something at the hearings yesterday about Purple Hearts which another network that is named for a four-legged animal has been making a big deal about,” Cohen told CNN, referring to criticism from Fox News.

“I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart,’” he continued. “I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never literally thought the Purple Heart should be given to agent Strzok. But I do believe that he was being attacked because the FBI and the Mueller investigation were under attack.”

I was watching the hearings when I heard that comment. I thought, oh good grief, what an idiot.

For his actions, the only thing Strzok deserves is a knuckle sammich.

Actually I was thinking he needed a quick trial and a good hanging.

Cohen deserves to lose his job for that remark. If he can’t control his mouth any better than that, he’s unworthy of being in Congress.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn. learned something from his experience listening to Strzok, spin.

He must have really gotten hammered for making that silly statement. “Stop the hammering!” to quote Lawrence O’Donnell.

That is not an apology. Not even a close call.

If there is justice in this world, he is still getting hammered.

Agree. That was not an apology. He only regrets getting hammered for being such a tool.

D-Tenn...
THAT is the only reason he regrets it.
He regrets that it will cost him his seat in Congress.

Democrat Steve Cohen of Tennessee showed no respect for our fallen service members with his ugly thoughtless statement. I hope the voters in his district take a hard look at Mr. Cohen as he is obviously anti-American and anti- Military.

My son has a PH form combat injuries in Iraq.

I guess this a-hole rep doesn't understand what 85% disabled means to someone with a PH.

This (spits) "Representative" is beneath contempt.

I don’t know why he would regret making the comment. It won’t hurt him at all in his campaign in that district
