Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger took to Twitter Saturday to criticize fellow members of the GOP who are challenging the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Kinzinger retweeted President Donald J. Trump’s tweet claiming that the Justice Department and the FBI’s inaction on the voter fraud is the biggest scam in American history.

“My God. Trying to burn the place down on the way out because you can’t handle losing,” Kinzinger tweeted. “No evidence, nothing but your temper tantrum and crazy conspiracies. Embarrassing. #RestoreOurGOP.”

He followed with criticism of the Jan. 6 event in Washington D.C.

“All this talk about Jan. 6 from (President Trump) and other congressional grifters is simply explained: They will raise money and gain followers by blaming everyone else knowing full well they can’t do anything. It’s sad, and an utter scam. #RestoreOurGOP,” Kinzinger said.

Kinzinger is an Air Force veteran and has already served in Congress for 10 years. He was one of 32 Republicans in the House to call for amnesty for DACA recipients.

In 2016, Mark Levin called out Kinzinger as a “RINO sellout.”

Levin said that Kinzinger ran as a “full-throated Tea Party conservative” but was now a “full-throated complete sellout.”

Kinzinger was criticized for supporting Jeb Bush and calling out Tea Party senators like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.

Of interest, Kinzinger donated $2,000 to Randy Feenstra’s congressional campaign in August of 2019. Feenstra, however, has been a vocal defender of election integrity and has taken the strongest pro-Trump stance of any of Iowa’s federal Republicans.
