Eleven members of Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger's family sent him a vitriolic letter accusing him of being a member of the "devil's army" in light of his criticism of then-President Donald Trump after the January 6 insurrection, The New York Times reported Monday.
"Oh my, what a disappointment you are to us and to God!" they wrote to the Illinois Republican, according to a copy of the letter obtained by the paper, rebuking his "horrible, rude accusations of President Trump."
"It is now most embarrassing to us that we are related to you," they continued in the letter, which was dated January 8, after Kinzinger called for the 25th Amendment to be used to remove Trump from office. "You have embarrassed the Kinzinger family name!"
Kinzinger was one of 10 Republicans who later joined all House Democrats in voting to impeach Trump last month for "incitement of insurrection" in light of his role in encouraging the riot at the US Capitol.
Kinzinger's office confirmed the letter's authenticity to CNN.
The Illinois Republican told CNN's David Axelrod during an episode of "The Axe Files" podcast released last month that he is willing to lose his seat over his vote to impeach Trump.
"I did it knowing full well it could very well be terminal to my career," Kinzinger said of his vote at the time. "But I also knew that I couldn't live with myself having, you know, try to just protect it and just felt like the one time I was called to do a really tough duty, I didn't do it."

    1. @Mac Daddy 50 but my ears hear very well I’m not here to argue with anyone I just like to research what you’re talking about so I can for my own opinion not everyone is as simple as you think

    2. @Truthisfreedom light *note to self: trump supporters get triggered when called “trump simp”* puts down pen, good to know!

    3. @Mac Daddy 50 I sensed a condescending tone in your last message so I had to reread what I had said and I can see how you took that but I was agreeing with your comment to the guy prior to this comment had no ill intent towards you or anyone else

    1. which leads us to another important point, he’s only doing this not to loose his corporate sponsors. That’s what we need to call these people, corporate sponsors. And we should make them take 30 second brakes between speeches to thank their sponsors.

    1. @Doomwrecker Television that’s funny you saying that considering that trump is buddy buddy with a real communist

    2. @Beenthere Donethat and do not realise that”s idolatry. says something is lacking in their education…..hummmm…..quality

    1. Exactly why I salute all Communists and Marxists and Anarchists and Greens and antinatalists and animal rights vegans in the West.

    2. BREAKING: CNN Paid Antifa Agitator at Capitol Riots — Now We’ve Got Receipts to Prove It!!! (John Sullivan of Insurrection USA, who incited incident with Jane Slacker CNN ‘independent’ reporter) BUSTED!!!
      They lied about the entire thing

    1. And exposing this was likely one of the reasons that this Rep. went public. That, and the family already spread the letter to all far right news media….

  2. That’s Shameful, These Family Members are Hopeless. Theses People are Looking For Trump, to be The GOP Savior! Too Bad We ALREADY have One! #TheFirstCommandment

    1. I know calling one side fascist and racist didn’t have them lose any family members! I lost my cousin because I agreed with Trump on some things so I believe the left does this way more and way more about group think.

  3. Mitch McConnell and the rest could’ve ended trump by impeaching him and kick him out like the loser that he is but instead chickened out and now they are owned by that narcissistic megalomaniac. RIP to the GOP

  4. I have to ask, who needs family members like this when you have millions of family members with you on your vote to impeach. Adam, we’re with you. Stay strong and healthy.

  5. It amazes me on how short sighted MANY people are knowing history and how patterns re-occur.
    Sorry that congressman’s family is wrapped up in the cult.

  6. Shunned! As if it’s the middle ages. If my family ever send me a letter like this, I’ll just respond back with a middle finger! He’s probably better off now.
