Recognize Russian actions in Ukraine as genocide

Dear friend,

This week, I introduced a congressional resolution condemning Russian aggression and war crimes in Ukraine as genocide and calling on Congress to support accountability for Putin’s regime. I also thanked Justice Stephen Breyer for his service to the country and congratulated him on his retirement after serving nearly 28 years on our nation’s highest court. I also welcomed our new judge, Ketanji Brown Jackson, who was sworn in on Thursday. I listened to the explosive special committee hearing on January 6 with the testimony of former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson and praised her for her courage; announced a nearly $1 million grant for nursing education at the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center (UTHSC); congratulated the University of Memphis for receiving a prestigious grant from the National Science Foundation; and offered health advice. I also wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July. Keep reading and follow me on TwitterFacebook and Instagram to see what I’m up to.

Recognize Russian actions in Ukraine as genocide

On Monday, I introduced a resolution identifying Russian war crimes in Ukraine as genocide under applicable international law. The resolution calls on the House of Representatives to condemn Russia’s actions and support international criminal investigations to hold Russian political and military leaders accountable for their crimes against humanity. See my press release and full resolution here.

Thank Judge Breyer and welcome Judge Jackson

On Thursday, Justice Stephen Breyer retired from the United States Supreme Court after nearly 28 years. I issued a statement thanking him for his service and for his thoughtful decision to give President Biden the opportunity to nominate Ketanji Brown Jackson, who has now been sworn in as Judge Jackson. See this statement here.

Tribute to January 6 Witness Cassidy Hutchinson

On Tuesday, Trump’s former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson offered explosive testimony establishing that Trump was eager to lead an armed mob to the Capitol the day it was overrun by rioters. The January 6 select committee continues to show that this anarchic president was and is unfit to occupy the Oval Office and should be prosecuted for his efforts to overthrow our democracy and suspend the rule of law.

Independence Day Commemoration

Monday is the 4th of July, a day to celebrate our nation’s independence. After 246 years, we are still striving to be a more perfect union, and we have many challenges, including new ones presented to us by the recent discouraging decisions of the United States Supreme Court. See my Independence Day statement here.

quote of the week

“I was near a conversation where I heard the president say something like, you know, I don’t care if they have guns. They’re not here to hurt me… Let my people in. They can walk to the Capitol from here. — Cassidy Hutchinson, assistant to Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, during the Tuesday, Jan. 6 committee hearing, describing the scene moments before Trump spoke at the Ellipse that day.

I wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July.

As always, I stay.
More sincerely,

Steve Cohen
Congressman
