Illinois Republican Congressman Rep. Adam Kinzinger referred to Trump and his allies’ efforts to overturn the election as a “scam” during an interview on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday.
Kinzinger took aim at some of his Republican colleagues in Congress, Donald Trump and “thought leaders” on Twitter who are getting retweets, followers and raising money on this scam.
“It is a scam” Rep. Kinzinger said. “It is going to disappoint the people who think this election was stolen. But instead of being upset with the people who led them on this grifting scam, they’re gonna somehow try to convince these people that it was, I don’t know, what’s the new word, the RINOs in Congress.”
“We have to follow the Constitution, and I’m sorry if the outcome is not what you wanted,” he added.
Trump allies in the House and at least one GOP senator, Tommy Tuberville the senator -elect from Alabama is planning to contest the results of the election in the January 6 joint session of Congress.
