Republicans should start listening more closely to GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois. If they get beyond their fury about his admirable insistence on investigating the Capitol riot, they might gain some real wisdom from him.
In the fight over the future of the Republican Party, some post-Trump Republicans are hoping voters outside the GOP will at least temporarily join their cause.
Market Watch/AP: Adam Kinzinger advocates ‘uneasy alliance’ to thwart Trump and his allies in upcoming Republican primaries
In the high-stakes fight for the GOP’s future, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, is calling on Democrats and independents to form an “uneasy alliance” with Republicans to fight former President Donald Trump’s influence.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger and his wife welcomed a baby boy Wednesday afternoon, the Illinois Republican announced on social media.
CHUCK TODD: Welcome back. A year ago, after the sacking of the U.S. Capitol, we asked this: Is this the end of something or the beginning? An aberration or a harbinger or where Trumpism was heading? We now know. The Grand Old Party is now Donald Trump's party. He lost the election, but insists it was stolen, still, has never conceded. And elected Republicans, most of them at least, pretend to believe, believe him because the voters already do, at least on that side of the aisle. On Thursday's January 6th anniversary, Republicans divided into three groups; the conspiracy spreaders; members who condemned the riot of the day, but not the man who inspired it; and the few who called it what it was, a violent attack on our democracy. Well, joining me now is Congressman Adam Kinzinger, of Illinois. He's one of the few Republicans who has publicly criticized former President Trump. He is also one of two Republicans on the House committee investigating January 6th. Congressman Kinzinger, welcome back to Meet The Press. Let me just start with this.
America is more divided today than we were on Jan. 6, 2021. We have allowed toxic tribalism to cloud our sense of reality, to question what’s true and to ignore the facts laid in front of us. We have to turn things around now or the great experiment of our democracy and the institutions we hold dear will crumble before our eyes.
U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger, who started his political career in Bloomington-Normal, is indicating he will not run for Illinois governor or U.S. Senator, and instead is focusing on a nationwide struggle that he says is the “fight of our lives.”
The Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol transformed Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., from a conspiracy fighter to one of the few elected Republicans in the entire nation willing to take on the Trump wing of the GOP, resulting in the end of his career in the House. The arc of that story is one of the biggest I covered in 2021.
Former President Trump’s war with his staunch GOP critics on Capitol Hill is seeping into every corner of the 2022 campaign trail.
What is Adam Kinzinger going to do? What should he do? Friends ask me. His options aren’t good, yet I have a path forward for Kinzinger.
