Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) has publicly joined those calling to remove President Trump during his final two weeks in office via the 25th Amendment.

WATCH: 


The Daily Caller’s Andrew Trunsky reports:

“Sadly, yesterday it became evident that not only has the president abdicated his duty to protect the American people and the people’s house, he invoked and inflamed passions that only gave fuel to the insurrection that we saw,” he said in a video. “When pressed to move and denounce the violence he barely did so.”

“I call for the vice president and members of the Cabinet to ensure the next few weeks are safe for the American people, and that we have a sane captain of the ship,” he added.

Kinzinger has been a vocal critic of the president throughout his term and especially in the weeks since he lost to President-elect Joe Biden. He strongly condemned the pro-Trump rioters that stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, laying blame at the hands of Trump and calling their effort a “coup attempt.”

“Here’s the truth: the president caused this. The president is unfit, and the president is unwell. The president must now relinquish control of the executive branch voluntarily or involuntarily,” Kinzinger said.

Kinzinger has become the first congressional Republican to publicly call for invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump. Reports last night stated that members of Trump’s Cabinet are considering forcibly removing him from office, too.

Where were the Biden and Harris people demanding antifa and Blm to stop rioting??? Biden was even asked if he made calls to the mayor. Has to work both ways.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN THE RIOTING, MURDER, BURNING CITIES, LOOTINF THAT WAS DONE BY BLM AND ANTIF ABD WHAT WAS DONE BY THE TRUMP SUPPORTERS. NEVER ONCE DID BIDEN TRY CALLING OFF HIS HOUNDS TO STOP THE LOSS OF INNOCENT LIVES AND PEOPLES LIFE INVESTMENTS. WHY DID YOU WANT TRUMP TO CALL OFF SOMETHING HE WAS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR. JUSTICE HAS TO GO ON THE SCALES AND BE WEIGHED. IF IT DOESNT BALANCE IT ISNT RIGHT. YOU TELL ME WHAT BALANCES HERE OR HAS BALANCED FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS. TRUMP WORKED DAY AND NIGHT WITHOUT SLEEP AND WITHOUT PAY TO TRY TO REBUILD THE AMERICA WE ALL LOVED AND HIS OWN CABINET REVOLTED AGAINST HIM. THAT IS WHY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY CANT GET ANYTHING ACCOMPLISHED. YOU ARE JEALOUS OF EACH OTHER AND CANT WAIT TO DIG YOUR CLAWS INTO SOMEONE AND YOU ARE AFRAID TO DIG INTO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERS , SO LIKE A WOLF YOU TURN ON YOUR OWN LEADERS. WORDS CANNOT BE HARSH ENOUGH TO TELL YOU WHAT YOU8 ARE AND WHAT THE REST OF THE REPUBLICANS THINK OF YOU. I AM GLAD NONE OF YOU ARE MY RELATIVES. I COULDNT APOLOGIZE ENOUGH FOR YOUR STUPIDITY. THAT INCLUDES OLE CHRISTIAN PENCE THE JUDAS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

There is no double standard in the Socialist States of America . Agree or leave, if you don’t do one or both, they will prosecute you for SEDITION. The B,,,,,, President – Elect of the SSA has already declared all Trump supporters “Domestic Terrorists”. Since he wasn’t specific, I assume that means all 74+ million of us..

Has he even read the 25th amendment? Obviously not! It’s another attempt at getting his name out there. He has joined the society of the “Deep State”. Tell him to read the 25th amendment.

An FYI – please understand Amen is NOT a ‘word’ to express agreement with what is said. It means “so be it”. Please consider that in your use.

Wrong, please educate yourself and others about amen…amen virtually is stating agreement to an above statement or prayer, indicating “so be it” as a finality to that statement. It expresses solemn ratification or agreement. (See dictionary.com).

BECAUSE ITS EASY TO POINT YOUR LITTLE FINGER AT SOMEONE AND CRY ALLIGATOR TEARS AND YELL “HE DID IT” BUT LOOK AT YOUR HAND, FOUR FINGERS ARE POINTING BACK AT YOU. TO ME THAT MEANS GET YOUR OWN AFFAIRS IN ORDER BEFORE YOU TRY GETTING SOMEONE ELSES IN ORDER.

Mr. Kinzinger, your post is so pathetic I had to respond: #1 The United States of America is NOT a DEMOCRACY #2 Your photo pose is not commanding attention to what you SAY, it reveals you are just so impressed and full of yourself. Please go join the VIEW or one of those TV debacles – at least we have the option to turn you off.
