After leaving Congress and “losing the trust” of Fox News anchor Sean Hannity, former Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said he was disowned by his family over his anti-Trump political stances.
“So, I had family that sent a certified letter disowning me. They said I’ve lost the trust of great men like Sean Hannity, which is funny, but they believe that. They said I was a member of the devil’s army.” Kinzinger said during an appearance on CNN.
The well-known opponent of the former president claimed that waves of death threats were made against him and his family after he decided to quit Congress due to differences with the Republican Party.
The former congressman was giving a sneak peek at his recently published book, “Renegade.”
Additionally, Kinzinger stated that it’s a “tough question” if he still identifies as a Republican.
“I do, only in that because I don’t wanna give up on that fight. And this country needs two healthy parties, a healthy Democratic Party and a healthy Republican. So, I’m not gonna give up that title.” he said.
However Kinzinger claimed he would be voting for Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election.
“Because in January 6th, we saw the guardrails of democracy held. The car hit the rails. It kept you on the road. That rail can’t take two hits. And now they know what they’re doing. Now they know where the tricks are in the system.” he concluded.
