Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger on Saturday slammed President Donald Trump, accusing the outgoing president of “Trying to burn the place down” on his way out while continuing to deny that he lost the election.
“My God. Trying to burn the place down on the way out because you can’t handle losing,” the Illinois Republican tweeted. “No evidence, nothing but your temper tantrum and crazy conspiracies. Embarrassing. #RestoreOurGOP.”
The comment from Kinzinger, an Air Force veteran who has served in Congress for 10 years, came in response to Trump’s tweet attacking the FBI and the Justice Department for not investigating what he called “the biggest SCAM in our nation’s history” referring to his election loss to President-elect Joe Biden.
The “Justice” Department and the FBI have done nothing about the 2020 Presidential Election Voter Fraud, the biggest SCAM in our nation’s history, despite overwhelming evidence, Trump tweeted. “They should be ashamed. History will remember. Never give up. See everyone in D.C. on January 6th.”
Trump has repeatedly alleged he beat Biden and claims there was widespread voter fraud. But states have stood by their results and courts have rejected Trump’s legal claims in dozens of cases. Attorney General William Barr, who has since stepped down, said last month his Justice Department has not seen fraud on the kind of scale that could flip the election.
In addition to winning the Electoral College vote 306 to 232, Biden won the popular vote by more than 7 million votes.
My God. Trying to burn the place down on the way out because you can’t handle losing. No evidence, nothing but your temper tantrum and crazy conspiracies. Embarrassing. #RestoreOurGOP https://t.co/dck64tuxJa
