Rep. Adam says he "fears about the future" if Trump does not face real consequences for the riot


Rep. Adam Kinzinger says he fears the future

if Trump does not face real consequences over the G6 riots

The Justice Department "will do the right thing," according to Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger, and has filed criminal charges against Donald Trump for his involvement in the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Speaking on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, Kinzinger said: "I think he's going to be charged, and I honestly think he should be."

Kinzinger is a member of :

the House Select Committee considering the attack

  • Additionally, it was determined last month to refer the former president to
  • the Justice Department for questioning over allegations that
  • he had tried to obstruct justice and conspired to
  • defraud the United States, and was rigged.
  • Words and "instigated", "assisted" or "confronted" rebellion.

The proposals relate to how

The insurrection was sponsored by the previous US president at

the US Capitol in Washington, DC, as tens of thousands of his radical fans tried to stop Congress from certifying Joe Biden's victory over Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

If he is not an offender :

I am honestly afraid for the future of this country because now every future president can say," Hey, here's the hindrance. "Kinzinger said," You must do everything you can to stay in power. "

Only one Republican out of two on:

the Democratic-led select committee on January 6

Kinzinger completed his investigation before the committee was dissolved

  • and the new Congress began on Tuesday
  • when Republicans assume control of
  • the House after last November's midterm elections.

Last June

Kinzinger chaired a panel session that focused on the pressure Trump

or his associates allegedly exerted on the Justice Department in an effort to persuade them to undo his 2020 defeat by falsely claiming widespread election fraud.

He spoke after the Committee's final meetings and on the day he left Congress. He has served as Illinois' representative to the House of Representatives since 2011.

By downplaying the Capitol attack and inciting Trump to riot

as well as by repeatedly endorsing Trump's false claims that the election

was reformed for Democrats

Kinzinger also criticized Republican leaders for

preserving Trump's effect over the political scene in America.

He attributed the former president's continued influence in politics to powerful House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who is currently competing to become the next Speaker.

It's the reason Donald Trump is still relevant, according to Kinzinger.

It explains why certain bizarre parts of the home are still present.

According to him :

  • shortly after the uprising on January 6
  • McCarthy visited Trump at his home in Mar-a-Lago in Florida.
  • This show of solidarity at a critical juncture "sent"
  • the political significance of Trump and strengthened the right.

He claimed Republicans changed from not knowing what to do about Trump to "reluctantly" defending him once McCarthy made the trip.

Given that Kevin McCarthy is the reason Donald Trump is still relevant politically today, Donald Trump ought to view Kevin McCarthy as his closest buddy.

During Trump's second historic trial for inciting the uprising, Mitch McConnell, the then Senate majority leader, and other Republican senators could not convict him.

He declared

Unless the Republican Party changes

it will not be our nation's future. Referring to Georgia's far-right congressman who supports the QAnon conspiracy theory and its examples

he said:

  • If you think of America as a success in 20 years
  • What Marjorie Taylor Greene desires will not determine the future of America.
  • or... who these radicals want .

Because "maybe a third of the population,"

believed that the 2016 election was rigged against Trump, Kinzinger expressed concern about American democracy as the 2024 presidential election gradually forms.

The congressman announced that he had no plans to run for president.


he acknowledged that taking a stand against Trump

who announced his presidential bid in 2024 in November, would be "exciting."

He just stands up and lies. He says lies.

People love it because it's entertaining but in the end, people care about their country. So, no, I intend not to run in 2024. But that would be fun. "
