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

Cawthorn’s comments were straight from the Trump playbook of smearing anyone that could be investigating him. Rep. Cawthorn is already dealing with a lawsuit in North Carolina that is trying to get him disqualified from the ballot in the state due to his participation in Trump’s 1/6 insurrection incitement rally.
Rep. Cawthorn has also promised that another 1/6 attack is coming.
Rep. Kinzinger is a member of the 1/6 Committee and likely has knowledge of any role that Cawthorn may have played in the Capitol attack planning. Even if Cawthorn had no involvement in the coup plot, he remains a vocal supporter of political violence.
Adam Kinzinger wasn’t putting up with any of Madison Cawthorn’s Trumpian clown antics, and with just eight little words, he put the mini-Trump wannabe in his place.
