Adam Kinzinger rips Trump, has no regrets standing alone with Liz Cheney

Kinzinger and Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney are the only two GOP members on the January 6 committee. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled his entire slate of members after Speaker Nancy Pelosi denied the admittance to Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and James Banks of Indiana.

The panel is chaired by Mississippi Democrat Bennie Thompson and features a number of vocal anti-Trump Democrats, including Reps. Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Adam Schiff of California.

Kinzinger, who represents a Joliet-area district, told Fox News Thursday he is disappointed in his former “friend” McCarthy for “denying cover” to Republicans like himself that wished to go against former President Trump in the wake of the attack.

“It pains me because Kevin and I used to be friends,” he said on “Your World.” “On January 1, I was on a conference call with Kevin. I said ‘Kevin, I fear there’s going to be violence on the 6th because when you convince people an election is stolen, if you believe that, violence is a logical outcome from that.’
