1. The chamber was almost empty.

I think there may have only been one other member present when Liz gave her speech.

3. Are you saying PBS specified asking Kinsinger and he refused? Or that they asked

unspecified House members?

4. The video states they asked ALL Illinois repubs in the house and even a few in nearby

states and they are all evil COWARDS! They won't go on Chicago Tonight to defend their bullcrap.

So they had Jan Sharkowsky, Brad Schneider, and Mike Quigley. All Illinois Democrats in the House because they are not COWARDS.

I don't know if Kinsinger walked out in D.C. yesterday or if he stayed to support Cheney.

5. He's supporting her online

Republican who voted to impeach Trump speaks at a virtual rally in support of Cheney

GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who also voted to impeach Mr. Trump, on Tuesday night spoke at a virtual rally held by a pro-Cheney group. While Kinzinger didn't say how he thought the vote could go, he said "we'll see what happens with Liz tomorrow but I'll tell you this much, she is at peace."

He repeated his comments from earlier this week that Cheney is being removed for being "consistent." "Liz's honesty has made it uncomfortable for members of Congress who would just love to have this whole thing go away," he said about the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

While arguing that Republicans need to "take back conservatism," Kinziger also said Cheney "made a very brave decision which back in the day used to not be brave, it was just called leading right which we we're all supposed to do."

Adam Kinzinger Blasts GOP’s ‘Legislative Terrorists’ in Epic Twitter Thread: Nowhere Have I Seen Jesus Christ Say ‘It’s Okay to Lie’

Kinzinger spared no one in his epic Twitter thread that called out House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, and members of the Freedom Caucus (which he mocked by calling them the “Freedom Club.”

The Twitter thread speaks for itself, and neatly illustrates the current GOP Civil War that has spawned following Trump’s first term in the White House. But it was Kingzinger’s calling out Trump’s lies — and the Republicans who enable them by citing the teachings of Jesus Christ — that are likely to hit hardest.

“As a Christian, I have read the words of Christ many times,” Kinzinger writes in his sixth of a nine-tweet thread. “Nowhere have I seen him say or imply that it’s ok to lie, so long as you own the Libs. I believe our open lies are an absolute abdication of our duty, and it is shameful.”
