Despite congressional certification of Joe Biden’s victory and Donald Trump’s commitment to peacefully transition power over the next couple weeks, Republican representative Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) is calling for an invocation of the 25th Amendment and thus a removal of Trump from office before January 20.
“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 here,” Kinzinger said in a recorded video posted to Twitter Thursday morning. “When pressed to move and denounce the violence, he barely did so. While of course victimizing himself and seeming to give a wink and a nod to those doing it.”
Kinzinger continued: “All indications are that the president has become unmoored, not just from his duty, or even his oath, but from reality itself. It is for this reason that 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 then cites Section Four of the 25th Amendment, which “allows a majority of the cabinet and the vice president to assume the duties of the office of presidency until the president is able to himself.”
“It’s time to invoke the 25th Amendment and to end this nightmare,” Kinzinger said.
He closed his recorded statement by directly blaming Trump for causing the chaos, calling him “unfit” and “unwell,” and saying he needs to either voluntarily or involuntarily relinquish his presidential duties before January 20.
Kinzinger thereby joins a chorus of Democrats in supporting Trump’s removal from power, despite the fact that Trump only has thirteen days left in the Oval Office. Kinzinger’s comments only add fuel to the fire, and he should realize that he is invoking and inflaming passions himself.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
