Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen Denies Calling for Coup Against Pres. Trump After Asking, ‘Where Are Military Folks?’

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), who last week said he wanted to award a Purple Heart to anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok, posted a tweet Monday after President Donald Trump’s meeting in Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin that many read as a call for a coup, asking, “Where are our military folks ? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!”

Cohen was commenting on a tweet by Democratic Party activist Scott Dworkin who accused Trump of being a traitor who should resign, “BREAKING: Trump just said he trusted Putin over the American military and the American intelligence services, in the assessment of election interference. He absolutely needs to resign. What a complete and utter disgrace. Absolutely disgusting. What a traitor.”

Cohen later mocked those who read the plain language of his tweet as a call for a coup, “Talk about jumping to conclusions without talking to source. No coup called for . I seriously doubt anyone would use twitter to do .. one tweet if by land two if by sea…Wow”
