'What A Disappointment You Are': Kinzinger Family Lashes Out After Impeachment Vote

U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger

After that vote, Kinzinger was censured by Republicans in his home district and then received a handwritten letter from a cousin that was signed by several other family members decrying his decision as a disappointment "to us and to God".

Former U.S. president Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday, signaling a growing feud between the two most important voices in the Republican Party.

In a brief statement, Burr accused the North Carolina Republican Party of expressing loyalty to Trump over the principles of the Republican Party.

Trump was ultimately acquitted by the Senate, on Saturday, but seven Republican senators voted to convict him.

Trump enjoyed more protection from prosecution while he was president because the U.S. Justice Department has concluded it would be unconstitutional to indict a sitting president. Mr Trump could also be sued by victims, though he has some constitutional protections, including if he acted while carrying out the duties of president.

He "is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day, no question about it".

"We weren't just trying to get the Democrats and 17 Republicans, we wanted to win everyone", Plaskett, a delegate from the U.S. Virgin Islands, said.

The civil lawsuit accuses the duo of violating the Ku Klux Klan Act, an 1871 law passed to crack down on the white supremacist organization, and is the latest legal attempt to find Trump responsible for the violence on January 6, which came after he spent months falsely claiming his election defeat in November was the result of widespread fraud.

Adam Kinzinger is in trouble with his family for joining the "devil's army" and voting to impeach Donald Trump.

"There's still more evidence that the American people need and deserve to hear and a 9/11 commission is a way to make sure that we secure the Capitol going forward", said Sen. That's the standard the Supreme Court laid out in its 1969 decision in Brandenburg v. Ohio, which overturned the conviction of a Ku Klux Klan leader.

Even before this poll was released, Trump's allies saw his reputation was back on the rise, and were amazed at just how quickly it was happening.

"The immunity argument is about the timing of the trial; it is generally accepted that ex-presidents can be prosecuted for crimes committed in office", Kalt said.

In a break from the GOP infighting, the Utah Republican Party announced earlier Wednesday that it would not censure Sen.

Kinzinger took those efforts a step further when he voted to strip conspiracy theorist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of her committee assignments.

Now a private citizen, Mr Trump is stripped of his protection from legal liability that the presidency gave him.

There is nothing preventing Trump from running for president in 2024, and he has said he is considering a variety of political options. Pat Toomey over his vote to convict Trump, according to county party officials. Capitol last month, was recently rebuked by some members of his family for becoming an increasingly outspoken critic of the former president. Every incumbent House Republican won for the first time in decades, and we flipped 15 seats, nearly costing Nancy Pelosi her job.

"He's been a leader, he's voted right, he has stood up for North Carolina throughout his career and we believe that he will continue to have a leadership role in the party", Whatley said of Burr's political future.

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 casting his vote to impeach Trump. "We sent him there to represent us".
