Dem Rep. Steve Cohen on Lauren Boebert: “It’s Pretty Clear She’s Not on the Home Team”

This year, Republicans decided to elect two QAnon supporters into the House of Representatives. One of them, Lauren Boebert (CO), wasn’t a typical political candidate. In addition to owning a restaurant with armed servers, she also has a lengthy rap sheet with numerous arrests.

Lauren Boebert (R-CO) speaks during a House debate session to ratify the 2020 presidential election at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC. Congress held a joint session today to ratify President-elect Joe Biden’s 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump. A group of Republican senators said they would reject the Electoral College votes of several states unless Congress appointed a commission to audit the election results.

To no ones surprise, Boebert has become one of the most controversial members of congress. There have been calls for her to resign after she tweeted out Nancy Pelosi’s location during the Capitol insurrection. When asked about the freshman congresswoman on Monday, Democrat Steve Cohen (TN) remarked, “it’s pretty clear she’s not on the home team.”

The Tennessee lawmaker made the comments while speaking to CNN today. He told Jim Sciutto, “We saw Congressman Boebert taking people for a tour sometime after [January] 3rd and before the 6th. I don’t remember the date. We were walking in a tunnel and we saw her … and she had a large group with her.”

Cohen continued, “It’s pretty clear that … she’s not on the home team. She was with the visitors.”
