“It’s a scam! GOP Representative Adam Kinzinger Says Donald Trump Fuels ‘Violence’ From His Supporters

Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger said on Sunday that Donald Trump was peddling a “scam” intended to fuel “violence” among his supporters by claiming that Congress could still overturn the election by rejecting the electoral college results on January 6.

“It’s a scam and it’s going to disappoint people who believe this election was stolen, who think this is an opportunity to change it,” he told CNN host Dana Bash.

Trump is pushing for Republicans in Congress – especially senators – to join them with a plan to challenge electoral college votes in five shifting states that turned blue last month.

The effort is led in the House by Republican of Alabama Mo Brooks. He needs at least one senator to challenge the results in order to put the motion for debate in next month’s joint session, where Congress will most likely certify the election of Joe Biden.

Kinzinger called the election “legitimate,” saying there was no evidence of widespread election fraud and suggesting there were no more channels for Trump to undo the results.

“If you convince people that, you know, Congress can change a legitimate election and everything has been stolen, there is a deep state theory that Satan is running the government,” the Republican said. Illinois. “You can see people being driven to violence, so that worries me.

Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger said on Sunday that Donald Trump was fueling “violence” from supporters and conspiracy theorists by suggesting that Congress could call off the elections in the January 6 joint session.

“We’re talking about the Constitution, and we have to follow it and I’m sorry if that doesn’t mean the outcome was what you wanted,” Kinzinger continued.

Kinzinger stepped up his criticism of the president in a CNN State of the Union interview on Sunday morning after denouncing Trump’s Twitter speech on Saturday, lamenting a “fraudulent” election.

“The Department of ‘Justice’ and the FBI did nothing about voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, the biggest scam in our country’s history, despite overwhelming evidence. They should be ashamed of themselves. History will be remembered. Never give up. See everyone in DC on January 6, ”the president wrote in one of his Saturday morning tweets.

Twitter called the post a disputed claim.

An hour later, Kinzinger hit back at Trump, tweeting “My God. Trying to burn the place down on your way out because you can’t bear to lose. No proof, just your anger and your crazy plots. Embarrassing. #RestoreOurGOP ‘

Kinzinger continued a few minutes later, “This whole Jan.6 talk from @realDonaldTrump and other congressional crooks is simply explained: They’re going to raise money and gain followers by blaming everyone knowing full well that they can’t do anything. It’s sad and a total scam. #restoreourgop ‘
