Following Adam Kinzinger vote to impeach his political and personal relationships began to weigh in.
According to Fox News, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a six-term Republican congressman representing Illinois, received a hand-written letter from 11 family members disowning him over his opposition of former President Donald Trump, Fox News has confirmed.
“Oh my, what a disappointment you are to us and to God! We were once so proud of your accomplishments! Instead, you go against your Christian principles and join the ‘devil’s army’ (Democrats and the fake news media),” the letter, first reported by The New York Times, reads.
It was dated Jan. 8, two days after rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol, forcing lawmakers into hiding and temporarily delaying Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory. Kinzinger called for the 25th Amendment to be used to remove Trump from office before Inauguration Day, and later was one of 10 Republicans to join House Democrats in voting to impeach him.
“You won’t convince us otherwise with your horrible, rude accusations of President Trump! (To embrace a party that believes in abortion and socialism is the ultimate sin.)”
“It is now most embarrassing to us that we are related to you. You have embarrassed the Kinzinger family name,” the letter continues.
“We are thoroughly disgusted with you!! And, oh by the way, we are calling for your removal from office,” it concludes. “President Trump has done more for the American people in four years, than you, the Rhinos and the Democrats have done in years!!”
