GOP leaders ‘lied to you’

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) has chastised Republicans who encouraged former President Donald Trump’s misrepresentations regarding the 2020 election, telling ABC “This Week” Sunday that they were manipulating and exploiting voters in political purposes.

The backdrop: Kinzinger, one of two Republicans serving on the House Select Committee on Jan. 6, has long been a prominent critic of Trump and has faced threats stemming from his work investigating the Capitol riot.

What they say : “Ladies and gentlemen, especially my Republican friends, your leaders, on the whole, have lied to you,” Kinzinger said.

  • “They know very different things from what they’re telling you. They know the election wasn’t stolen, but they’re going to send in funding requests, they’re going to take your money and they’re going to use you. to stay in power. You are being abused.
  • “You can be mad at Liz Cheney and me. It’s okay. We’ve been taking this for a while. We’re not the ones lying to you,” Kinzinger added, later naming House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, as one of the “liars.”

Kinzinger approached the Department of Justice investigation into the Capitol riot, saying, “I certainly hope they move forward. I certainly think there’s evidence of crimes and I think it goes all the way back to Donald Trump.”
