Republican lawmaker Adam Kinzinger is urging Senators to vote to convict former President Trump.
In a new Wapo Op-ed, Kinzinger writes “convicting Donald Trump is necessary to save America from going further down a sad, dangerous road.”
He also argues “I firmly believe the majority of Americans — Republican, Democrat, independent, you name it — reject the madness of the past four years. But we’ll never move forward by ignoring what happened or refusing to hold accountable those responsible. That will embolden the few who led us here and dishearten the many who know America is better than this. It will make it more likely that we see more anger, violence and chaos in the years ahead.”
“The better path is to learn the lessons of the recent past. Convicting Donald Trump is necessary to save America from going further down a sad, dangerous road,” he concludes.
