Adam Kinzinger Gives Up Game, Lands New Job as CNN’s ‘Senior Political Commentator’

Former Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) gave up the game and joined CNN as the network’s new “senior political commentator” just days after leaving Congress.

Kinzinger reportedly spent his last few months in Congress auditioning for a role at various networks.

The move appears to explain why Kinzinger took frequent swipes at President Donald Trump and his former Republican colleagues as he exited the stage.

CNN issued a statement to announce that Kinzinger is “joining CNN as a Senior Political Commentator.

“Kinzinger joins CNN with extensive experience in GOP politics, having recently retired from the U.S. House of Representatives after serving six terms representing Illinois’ Sixteenth Congressional District.

“Kinzinger most recently served on the high-profile House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol as well as the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“Prior to being elected to Congress, Kinzinger served in the Air Force in both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

“Kinzinger was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in November 2003 and later awarded his pilot wings.

“He has served in the Air Force Special Operations, Air Combat Command, Air Mobility Command, and Air National Guard,” CNN said.

“Kinzinger continues to serve his country as a pilot in the Air National Guard, with the current rank of Lieutenant Colonel.”

“I’m not going to miss the job,” Kinzinger said earlier about Congress.

“I’m glad I’m not going to be back. It gives me time to focus on broader things, bigger fights.”

Before his job was confirmed at CNN, Kinzinger also called for Trump to be charged, in what now seems like an audition.

“If this is not a crime, I don’t know what is,” Kinzinger said, without producing any evidence of a crime.

“If a president can incite an insurrection and not be held accountable, then really there’s no limit to what a president can do or can’t do.

“I think the Justice Department will do the right thing.

“I think he will be charged, and I frankly think he should be.

“If he is not guilty of a crime, then I frankly fear for the future of this country.”
