Republican lawmaker says Trump needs to be convicted in order to 'save America'

Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, one of the 10 Republican lawmakers who crossed party lines to vote for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, asked his congressional colleagues to "learn the lessons of the recent past" and vote to convict the former president.

In an opinion column published in the Washington Post on Monday, Kinzinger wrote that "the future of our party and our country depends on confronting what happened" after the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill. Kinzinger argued that the riot "didn't come out of nowhere" and that it was perpetuated by "four-plus years of anger, outrage and outright lies."


"Perhaps the most dangerous lie — or at least the most recent — was that the election was stolen," Kinzinger wrote. "Of course it wasn't, but a huge number of Republican leaders encouraged the belief that it was. Every time that lie was repeated, the riots of Jan. 6 became more likely."

... "The better path is to learn the lessons of the recent past," Kinzinger added in his column. "Convicting Donald Trump is necessary to save America from going further down a sad, dangerous road."
