If you’re going to come for the Secret Service, you had better bring the goods, and outgoing Rep. Adam Kinzinger may be about to learn that lesson the hard way.
Kinzinger, who has been a staunch anti-Trump voice in the Republican Party for years now, has been using his time on the January 6th select committee to continue his tirades. He and the committee’s work has been largely focused on defaming the former President before he has a chance to announce his 2024 reelection campaign in earnest.
Now, as the committee looks to desperately keep the attention of the nation, Kinzinger is making a rather ominous and outlandish allegation against the nation’s top law enforcement agency.
During an appearance on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with host Wolf Blitzer, Kinzinger said the committee is pursuing those inconsistencies as questions swirl over an alleged altercation on Jan. 6 between former President Trump and Secret Service agents in the presidential vehicle.
His statement was outrageously presumptive:
“There is something going on at the Secret Service, either pure incompetence all the way on the scale to potentially very criminal activity or just having a preference for one side or the other,” Kinzinger told CNN.
“It’s not for me to say at this point whether they lied or not,” Kinzinger said on CNN. “There are some inconsistencies that we’re going to pursue. There are a lot of questions, things they said earlier that maybe witnesses have countered.”
The suggestion is certainly a wild one, and appears to be just the latest bizarre argument being used by the committee to vilify the previous administration.
