CNN has hired retired lawmaker Rep. Adam Kinzinger as the network’s new senior political commentator.
Kinzinger, who was part of Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th Committee and voted to impeach Trump, tweeted he was “Happy to join the team CNN!”
Kinzinger, who served six years in Congress, lost his seat after the Illinois House of Representatives approved a new congressional district map.
CNN is quickly becoming a graveyard for Anti-Trumpers.
This is Kinzinger’s first appearance on CNN; he looks at home:
In Kinzinger’s farewell speech to Congress, he accused Republicans of being racists “who only stoke hatred.”
GOP “used to believe in a big tent that welcomed the tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Now, they shelter the ignorant, racist, who only stoke anger and hatred,” Kinzinger said.
