After the second impeachment and also pardon of former Head of state Donald Trump, the Republican Celebration’s commitment to the former president appears largely resolute.
And also the intensity of Trump’s hold on the conventional base has actually made life difficult for those in the event that see his habits as hazardous as well as incompetent. Couple of GOP legislators understand this much better than Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., that has actually been censured by not just the regional celebration but likewise his church and also family members.
“Kinzinger’s family members accused him of joining “the ‘devil’s army’ (Democrats and the fake news media),” and extensively defended Trump against what they called “horrible, rude accusations.”
“To embrace a party that believes in abortion and socialism is the ultimate sin,” the letter said.
The letter was written by family members including Kinzinger’s cousin Karen Otto, who told the Times that she hoped the congressman would be “shunned.”
“It is now most embarrassing to us that we are related to you,” the letter continued. “You have embarrassed the Kinzinger family name!”
Kinzinger, a 42-year-old Air National Guard pilot, first told Business Insider about the letter last month, saying that he was surprised by the vitriol he had received in the wake of voting to impeach Trump.
“It’s been crazy, when you have friends — that you thought were good friends that would love you no matter what — that don’t,” he told the publication.
Kinzinger’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment early Tuesday.
Kinzinger is not the only Republican lawmaker facing serious backlash for backing Trump’s impeachment. Most of the seven GOP senators who voted to convict Trump have also faced calls for censure from fellow Republicans in their respective states in recent days.”Source
