Kinzinger Lashes Back At RNC For Censure

Republican In Name Only (RINO) Rep. Adam Kinzinger has lashed back at the RNC for his and fellow Jan. 6 committee censure. 

Kinzinger said in a recent interview that it was wrong for the Republican National Committee (RNC) to censure him and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) for their work on the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, mob attack on the Capitol.

In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, Kinzinger said that the RNC’s censure “was a bridge that went way too far.”

He told MSNBC that the Jan. 6 committee is “working together, pulling in the same direction all to get one thing, which is answers.”

In a separate interview with CNN’s “New Day” later that same day, Kinzinger went on to say that the RNC is “completely unmoored from the truth.”

He said it had “pledged allegiance to one man over any kind of principle.” He also took offense at the language used by the RNC in their censure motion against him and Cheney.

“Conservatism is no longer about what you actually believe; it’s about how intensely you’re loyal to Donald Trump,” he said. This, in turn, shows the party “is not committed to the rule of law, despite what they say and it’s not committed to democratic principles,” he told CNN.

The RNC resolution said Friday that Cheney and Kinzinger have been engaging in the “persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse,” referring to the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol.

Officials later said that language was not referring to those who took violent actions and entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, but the language voted upon by the RNC was not changed. 

Kinzinger and Cheney have both taken severe political lumps for their criticism of former President Trump, who was impeached for a second time for inciting the Jan. 6 mob, and for their work on the panel. 

Cheney was booted from House GOP leadership and is facing a Trump-backed primary challenger. Kinzinger has decided not to run for reelection.

  1. Got what he asked for !!!

  2. Looks like he will B taking a run 4 another political office, President?

  3. He is another Rino, remember that is the same as a corrupt DemocRAT!

    • Nah, he is an Illinois politician and that is almost as corrupt as it gets. The only type of politician that is worse is a Chicago one. As an example that most people know would be Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama. Kinzinger is supposed to be representing the conservatives in central Illinois. Instead, he is pushing for those demokrauts in East St. Louis and Chicago. He is wise not to run for re-election because he would lose.

  4. A pompous jerk
    NEVER KINZINGER

  5. He’s a clown. Totally misrepresented his views in a conservative district just to get elected.

  6. Kinzinger Lashes Back At RNC For Censure and then a “light bulb” moment he realizes… NO ONE CARES!

  7. Republicans have gone off the deep end. Centering their own. It makes no sense. Republicans are the party of thieves and criminals. Anyone who supports Donald Trump is in that group. Kinsinger was doing his job.

  8. This jerk and Cheney shoud have been kicked out long ago.

  9. Adam “The Rat” K. is a crybaby sissy pants RINO.

  10. Wow, Kinzinger isn’t going to run for re-election?? Even if he did decide to run, he no longer has a district. The Illinois Demoncrats are in the process of Gerrymandering, Oops, I mean “redistricting” his district out of existence!!! What a moron this guy is!!!

  11. And Kinzinger went WAY TOO FAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is just another A-HOLE, pretending to be a Republican, and as Fubar said in the above post;
    NO ONE CARES !!!!!!!!!!

    • Why did he bring a loaded handgun to the Congress on January 6th. He told his wife not to come to congress that day. Could it be that he knew ahead of time what was going to happen? Could he have known who the real rioters belonged to?
      Lots of questions to be answered.

      • I totally agree with you? There I more to the story and the citizens of this nation know it!

      • Couple that with the fact the both Kinzinger and Cheney hated Trump long before Jan. 6th. Cheney hates Trump because he didn’t like her father Dick, so this is her way of getting back at him. Their ( Kinzinger and Cheney) main objective is not to seek true justice on what happened on Jan. 6th but to paint Trump as some kind of political monster. Their political bais has blinded them from truly seeking justice. They gave cut off their noses to spite their faces. Let’s pray that neither one of them remain in office because their hatred and bias against Trump will continue even if Trump wins 2024. They both part of the cancer that RINOs bring to the Republican Party.

  12. I’m so proud to be a Republican both are turn coats no loyalty neither one should call themselves a conservative because they are not

  13. Adam and Liz are the only true Republicans left from the Party of Lincoln. The rest are now just part of the Trumplican party. So happy my entire family of actual Republicans have left the party because of their idolatry of Trump. We’re all Christians that know the Lord as our Savior. What’s going on right now with the Party is of Satan.

  14. Adam you are such a disappointment to me and my family. I thought as a vet you would have more sense but I guess not. I am ashamed to say that I voted for you but know this I will never make that mistake again. You are an embarrassment to your own family too. You just drank the Kool-aide the dems gave you and asked for more.

  15. This guy has problems …… First of all all that the 1/6 panel is doing is mainly looking into Trump and not what the democrats did. Many people knew a head of time what could happen and nothing was done . Since I have seen the report from the FBI and NYPD on the news how could Pelosi and Chuck not see it ? Yet the 2 rinos still look at it that only one side did anything wrong . Adam is being played by the left and he will not speak up to have Pelosi and Chuck testify why is that ? If he really cared he would demand that !

  16. To Mick’s, (Feb.13th) comments…I’m sorry you and your family have left the Republican party because of your dislike of President Trump but I’m more disappointed than sorry. You have failed, like so many others, to do your homework. That man did more good for our nation than any president since Roosevelt (not a Republican, of course) and with the least amount of support and while fighting impeachment, as well. You’re Christians you write, yet you’ve now chosen a political party that wants all churches closed. Obama had freedom of religion removed from the military….did you know that? That was the Democrats first step. President Trump may be loud and pompous and sometimes crude…..but he tells it like it is. He doesn’t say one thing, like Biden, Obama and Clinton, and then do just the opposite. Check it out. Also…Obama has had more law suits brought against him than any other president. Even his appointed Justices have vote against him. Do your homework before you vote for the evils of the Dumbocrats…ooops….Democrats. You’ll regret it if you don’t.
