When Rep. Madison Cawthorn tweeted a not-so-subtle attack on federal law enforcement agencies that might be investigating him, Rep. Adam Kinzinger shot him down.

Cawthorn’s comments were straight out of Trump’s playbook of smearing anyone who might be investigating him. Rep. Cawthorn is already dealing with a lawsuit in North Carolina that is trying to disqualify him from the ballot in the state. due to his participation in Trump’s 1/6 incitement rally.
Representative Kinzinger is a member of Committee 1/6 and is likely aware of any role Cawthorn may have played in planning the attack on the Capitol. Even if Cawthorn was not involved in the coup plot, he remains a vocal supporter of political violence.
Adam Kinzinger had no tolerance for any of Madison Cawthorn’s Trumpian clown antics, and with just eight little words, he put the would-be mini-Trump in his place.
