Agent Adam Kinzinger isn’t fretted about the current reaction from his fellow Republican politicians.
In a live webinar with The Washington Post, the Illinois congressman stated, “The bottom line, I do not require the job. I delight in doing it. I wish to win once again, but if I don’t, I can look at myself in the mirror and I’m at overall peace.”
Kinzinger has actually faced widespread backlash from his own celebration after speaking up against previous president Donald Trump and voting to impeach Trump for his role in the January 6 Capitol riot.
” I looked at what took place on the 6th and stated, if that’s not impeachable, we may as well simply eliminate impeachment because then nothing is,” Kinzinger said Wednesday early morning. “Whatever the consequences are it’s the best thing to do.”
He signed up with 10 other House Republicans, consisting of No. 3 Republican Agent Liz Cheney, who also voted to move impeach Trump a second time– this time on charges of “incitement of insurrection” versus the U.S. federal government. Cheney also dealt with criticisms for her vote and was nearly ousted from celebration leadership for impeaching Trump.
” Everyone that’s been through a political science class understands, there’s a debate between are you expected to do what the district desires or are you expected to do what your conscience says, and I think it’s both,” Kinzinger stated.
” Look, out of 750,000 individuals I represent, just one has to take an oath to safeguard the Constitution in this capacity. And that’s me,” he continued. “I believe what that states intentionally is that we have an unique responsibility as members of Congress to take hard votes at a time like this.”
