“I don’t think the history books will be kind to him” – POLITICO


He added of McCarthy: “And he bears the responsibility. I don’t think the history books will be kind to him.

Kinzinger is one of two Republicans serving on the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riots on Capitol Hill. He was responding to McConnell’s statement last week about this panel: “We’re all going to watch it. It was a horrific event, and I think what they’re looking to find out is something the public needs to know.

“He obviously holds his cards very close,” Kinzinger said of McConnell. “I think that was a very powerful statement and I appreciate it.”

McConnell has come under attack in recent months from Trump for the way he interacted with the Biden administration and other Democrats on the Hill. “Mitch McConnell is a disaster,” Trump said Sunday on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”

Kinzinger told host Jonathan Karl it was possible that some of his current colleagues in Congress could be subpoenaed in connection with this investigation — and did not rule out the same for Trump.

‘Because January 6 was a very bad day,’ he said, ‘everything that has come before is rotten democracy or rotten autonomy that we have to fix so that we don’t have a another Jan. 6. So absolutely no one – no one, congressman, former president, no one in America is above the law.”
