Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) might as well be a Democrat. He seems to take every opportunity to follow Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s lead. And that’s why she selected him to be on the January 6 Commission.
It’s not an automatic expectation for every Republican to agree with one another, but if Kinzinger is disagreeing by ignoring clear evidence of innocence, then there’s a problem.
Kinzinger is back with a list of his regrets, and it doesn’t include his persistent attacks against conservatives across the country.
Kinzinger tweeted, “Thread (and admission): 1) I want to be honest, in congress I have only a few votes that in hindset [sic], I regret. My biggest regret was voting against the first impeachment of Donald Trump.”
With all of the information coming out about the “Russian collusion” hoax and former President Barack Obama’s administration, to include current President Joe Biden, being involved in pushing the false narrative that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, it’s becoming clearer to anyone paying attention that Trump’s impeachment was baseless and had no backing. It was reasonable for anyone from either party to vote against it.
The second regret that Kinzinger has was also tweeted out on social media: “2) It’s important for political leaders to be transparent and admit regret when needed. The bottom line, Donald Trump withheld lethal aid to Ukraine so he could use it as leverage for his campaign. This is a shameful and illegal act, directly hurting the Ukraine defense today…”
To put it simply: no, that didn’t happen.
Trump sent Javelin’s and hundreds of millions of dollars to Ukraine for defense, so the claim has no backing. It’s the same thing over and over again and anyone going against Trump expects a different response, or some sort of validation for their stance.
The fact is, past events can’t be changed. The time to move forward is now. Kinzinger isn’t going to run for re-election because he knows that he won’t get re-elected.
Lastly, Kinzinger tweeted: “3) I wish I could go back in time and Vote for it, but I cannot. What we can do now is to ensure that this NEVER happens again, and that we all put the interests of our nation above our party. @AVindman and others deserve our appreciation.”
What’s best for our nation is for these career politicians to get out of office. Lucky for the U.S. and its future, Kinzinger will be gone by 2023.
