The scramble to determine the direction of the Republican Party post-Trump is now underway, and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., is trying to establish himself as a leader of the faction eager to move on from President Trump.
A frequent critic of the president since the election, Kinzinger has accused Trump of “trying to burn the place down on the way out” because he is challenging the election results by alleging voter fraud, and he found himself going toe-to-toe with outspoken conservative talk radio host Mark Levin, who called him “a very devious and reckless politician.”
Levin blasted the GOP lawmaker as Kinzinger shared a video claiming that Trump is “currently trying to discredit the election results through falsehoods and conspiracies.”
“Adam Kinzinger is very devious and reckless politician,” Levin said in a tweet. “He was elected as a Tea Party candidate 10 years ago and quickly turned on them. He is now an activist for the administrative state and against constitutionalists.” more
