Disgraced former Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) has revealed that members of his own family have disowned him.
The lawmaker-turned-social media personality claims he received a “certified letter” from members of his family informing him that they were officially “disowning” him.
Kinzinger dropped the claim during a Monday interview with CNN.
The ex-congressman, who was a member of the Democrats’ anti-Trump Jan6 Committee, says his family suggested he can no longer be trusted.
“So, I had family that sent a certified letter disowning me.”
He claims his family had turned against him because of remarks made by Fox News television personality Sean Hannity.
“They said I’ve lost the trust of great men like Sean Hannity, which is funny, but they believe that.”

The Kinzinger family members also suggested the former representative has formed an allegiance with Satan.
“They said I was a member of the devil’s army,” he said.
Kinzinger was one of a handful of Republicans to vote to impeach President Donald Trump after the Jan. 6, 2021 disturbance.
The dissident Republican reiterated that should the GOP nominate Trump for the presidency, he will support President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election.

Kinzinger announced his retirement from Congress in 2021 after he lost his seat to redistricting.
Kinzinger’s district was partitioned in accordance with Illinois’ state redistricting process, according to Politico.
Ironically, Kinziger’s Democrat allies were the ones who redistricted him out of his seat.
New districts less favorable to Kinzinger’s electoral prospects left the Democrat-friendly legislator without a clear path to re-election.
Kinzinger routinely posts fiery messages on Twitter/X targeting Trump and Republicans,
The posts tend to re-hash partisan feuds from Trump’s presidency that have faded from the consciousness of the broader public.

Kinzinger didn’t mention which of his family members have turned against him, however.
