‘Never Trump’ Rep. Adam Kinzinger Demands Republicans Attack Trump: ‘Have To Stand Up’

On Monday, ‘Never Trump’ Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger demanded that his party members and other conservatives attack and denounce President Donald Trump.

Kinzinger made his comments during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

He told “Morning Joe,” “If it’s somebody that I know that isn’t like crazy, you know, a person, you’ll hear him say, ‘Well, look, I just have to win my primary because if it’s not me, trust me, the guy I’m running against, he is really bad.’ I’m like, ‘OK, great.’”

“But you know, at some point, you have to stand up,” Kinzinger said of his private conversations with other Republicans. “Some of them it’s, ‘Hey, you have to quit trying to tell me how to do my job.’ You’ll get that occasionally.”

Kinzinger continued, “If I asked somebody, for instance, if they’ve even tweeted anything or made a statement at all in opposition to what Donald Trump said, where he said, I tried to get, you know, Mike Pence to overthrow the election. ‘Have you said anything?’ ‘Hey, I just don’t want to get in a Twitter war out there, or I am a local person. I focus on local issues.’”

Kinzinger is part of the Democrats’ January 6 select committee to investigate the Capitol riot. He and fellow ‘Never Trump’ Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, the only Republicans on the committee, were formally censured by the Republican National Committee last week for taking part in that effort.

Kinzinger: ‘Your silence is complicity, and that’s what we’re dealing with right now’

He continued, “You know, look, again, I can’t begrudge anybody how they do their job. Everybody’s got their responsibility, but there is a moment, and this is that moment, at which if you don’t stand up, you are a part of the problem. You are part of the problem.”

Kinzinger then became accusatory. “Your silence is complicity, and that’s what we’re dealing with right now,” he said. “It is so egregious.”

“We are in such a dangerous position,” the congressman finished.
