  • GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger praised officers who held off the pro-Trump mob on January 6.
  • Choking up during a House hearing on the Capitol attack, Kinzinger told them: "You guys won. You guys held."
  • Kinzinger also slammed the "toxic" behavior of fellow Republicans attacking the House probe.
Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois on Tuesday became emotional as he praised the officers who helped fight off the violent, pro-Trump mob that descended upon the US Capitol on January 6.

"You guys may feel, individually, a little broken ... But you guys won. You guys held," Kinzinger, a US Air Force veteran, told the officers during the first hearing held by the House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection.

Kinzinger, one of two GOP lawmakers on the committee, ripped into his fellow Republicans over their efforts to downplay the insurrection and dismiss the probe as a partisan sham.

"We still don't know exactly what happened. Why? Because many in my party have treated this as just another partisan fight. It's toxic and it's a disservice to the officers and their families," Kinzinger said.
