Adam Kinzinger Warns Next Presidential Election ‘Is Going To Be A Mess’


Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Sick.) said Sunday he’s “very anxious” in regards to the next presidential election, warning that 2024 “goes to be a large number,” citing a recent example of voting conspiracy theories taking hold.

Chatting with ABC’s “This Week,” Kinzinger mentioned Recent Mexico, where a GOP-led county’s governing commission refused to certify the local election results due to unsubstantiated concerns over voting machines before a judge stepped in.

The case echoes voting conspiracy theories within the 2020 election when right-wing personalities and networks accused voting software firms of using technology to skew the election in favor of Joe Biden.

“That is the untold thing. We focused a lot on what goes on in D.C. and Congress and the Senate,” Kinzinger said. “But when you might have these election judges which can be going to folks that don’t imagine principally in democracy, authoritarians, 2024 goes to be a large number.”

“And get up, America. Get up, Republicans, because this isn’t going to be good for you in case you think it’s,” Kinzinger continued.

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot has reportedly argued over whether to refer Trump to Department of Justice for criminal charges over his efforts in overturning the outcomes of the 2020 election.

The panel has shared damning evidence on former President Donald Trump’s election lies and his last-ditch efforts to remain in power, including his pressure campaign on then-Vice President Mike Pence to not certify the election results.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) on Sunday focused on the tweet Trump sent out because the Capitol was already under siege, accusing Pence of not having “the courage to do what must have been done” over his refusal to reject electoral votes.

“When he sent out the tweet attacking his vice chairman, he already knew that the violence was underway,” Lofgren said on “Face the Nation” on CBS. “The one conclusion you may reach is that he intended to speed up that violence against the previous vice chairman.”

Kinzinger, only considered one of two Republicans sitting on the House panel, told George Stephanopoulos he believes Trump is guilty of “seditious conspiracy,” before adding the House panel isn’t a criminal charges committee.

“I feel what we’re presenting before the American people definitely would rise to a level of criminal involvement by a president and definitely failure of the oath,” Kinzinger said.

A majority of Americans supports charging the previous president for his role within the riot, an ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted in June showed.
