Adam Kinzinger Warns Next Presidential Election ‘Is Going To Be A Mess’

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) expressed concern about the next presidential election on Sunday, predicting that 2024 “is going to be a catastrophe,” citing a recent example of voter conspiracy theories gaining traction.

Kinzinger referenced New Mexico on ABC’s “This Week,” where a GOP-led county governing panel refused to certify local election results due to unfounded worries about voting machines before a judge intervened.

Right-wing celebrities and networks accused voting software corporations of utilizing technology to influence the election in favor of Joe Biden in the 2020 election, and this case reflects those conspiracy theories.

“This is the story that hasn’t been told. “We were so focused on what was going on in Washington, D.C., Congress, and the Senate,” Kinzinger said. “However, if these election judges are people who don’t believe in democracy and are authoritarians, 2024 is going to be a disaster.”

“And America, wake up. “Wake up, Republicans,” Kinzinger continued, “Because this isn’t going to be good for you if you believe it is.”

The House committee examining the insurgency on Jan. 6, 2021, is allegedly debating whether to recommend Trump to the Department of Justice for criminal charges related to his efforts to alter the election results in 2020.

The panel has presented damaging evidence about former President Donald Trump‘s election lies and last-ditch efforts to stay in power, including his campaign to have Vice President Mike Pence not recognize the election results.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) focused on Trump’s tweet written when the Capitol was already under siege on Sunday, accusing Pence of lacking “the fortitude to do what should have been done” in refusing to reject electoral votes.

“He already knew the violence was happening when he put out the tweet targeting his vice president,” Lofgren said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “You can only conclude that he meant to escalate the violence against the former vice president.”

Only one of two Republicans on the House panel, Kinzinger, told George Stephanopoulos that he believes Trump is guilty of “seditious conspiracy,” before clarifying that the House panel is not a criminal charges committee.

“What we’re presenting to the American people,” Kinzinger added, “clearly rises to the level of criminal activity by a president and absolute failure of the oath.”
