Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that he believed former President Donald Trump was guilty of “seditious conspiracy.”
Kinzinger said: “What we can do from a committee perspective is show, as we’ve done so far, for example, the pressure that was on Mike Pence and how the president knew what he was doing. ‘it was.”
He added: “This January 6 attack is unprecedented, and the rot that led to it is unprecedented. It is critical right now that we understand this and figure out how to defend our democracy.
Presenter George Stephanopoulos asked, “It’s ultimately up to the Justice Department, but have you come to the conclusion that President Trump should be prosecuted?”
Kinzinger said, “I certainly think the president is guilty of knowing what he did, of seditious conspiracy, of being involved in these kinds of different segments of pressuring the DOJ, the vice president, etc. Of course, as you know, we are not a criminal charges committee. I want to be careful in the specific use of this language. But what we are presenting to the American people would amount to the president’s criminal involvement and definitely the failure of the oath. The oath must count here. Your personal request to defend the Constitution must count. If you have people who don’t consider that at all, there’s no law in the world that we can pass that will make a small difference.
