“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.
