“Donald Trump is the most despicable human being to ever reside in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.,” Cohen said on MSNBC.

“A narcissistic sociopath doesn’t change,” he continued. “It endangers the country. And war … is something he could get into to improve the ratings for the [2018] elections, where they [Republicans] are in desperate shape.”

The Tennessee Democrat, a fierce critic of Trump, sponsored five articles of impeachment against Trump in November.

Joined by five other House Democrats, Cohen introduced the articles accusing Trump of being a danger to the country, obstructing justice in his firing of former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyComey: I’m ‘embarrassed and ashamed’ by Republican party Comey, Anderson Cooper clash over whether memo release violated FBI rules The Memo: Jackson ‘fiasco’ casts pall on White House MORE and violating the foreign emoluments clause of the Constitution.

“Given the magnitude of the constitutional crisis, there’s no reason for delay,” Cohen said at the time.

Cohen had previously announced in August he would introduce articles of impeachment against Trump based on his comments following the deadly violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

“Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the president said 'there were very fine people on both sides.' There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen,” Cohen said in a statement at the time.
