Kinzinger Taunts Trump Ahead Of Next Jan 6 Hearing


One of the two Republicans who sit on the House January 6 Committee went onto ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) has been a strong advocate for holding the Republicans responsible for their part on that fateful day, January 6. And Kinzinger had some strong words for his party.

The Illinois representative said that he believed that every “single Trump supporter would refuse to admit” voting for him in about “10 years.” Host Stephanopoulos told Kinzinger that the polls showed an increasing number of GOP members doubting the veracity of Trump’s attempted coup on January 6.

The show’s host George Stephanopoulos asked Kinzinger this question:

‘How do you explain that?’

The legislator replied:

‘On the margins, yes. It is puncturing through. I think what’s most important is what does history say in five or 10 years because I can guarantee — well, I can get about as close as I can to guaranteeing that in about 10 years, there’s not going to have been a single Trump supporter that exists anywhere in the country.’

Kinzinger continued, comparing the situation to that of President Richard Nixon:

‘It’s like Nixon. There were a lot of people that supported Nixon until he was out of office and then everybody was like, “Nobody supported Nixon.” I figure that that’s going to happen.’

According to the Republican representative:

‘[Trump] is, in essence, a cult leader right now.He’s a man that can stand up and say anything he wants and these news organizations just reinforce it.’

Kinzinger said that he believed how Trump acted on January 6 “would rise to a level of criminal involvement:”

‘I certainly think the president is guilty of knowing what he did—seditious conspiracy.’ 

Carrying out his assignment on the January 6 Select Committee has been dangerous work. Kinzinger released some of the threats he received, even against his wife and baby.

His Deputy Chief of Staff Maura Gillespie said to The Business Insider:

‘At some point, we had to turn the phones off and put them to voicemail because it was so overwhelming.’

However, he received a good share of positive votes:

‘It’s been a nice thing to see, honestly. When we shine a light on the darkness, humanity steps up, and good triumphs over evil.’
