Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., is only one of two Republican members of Congress serving on the House Committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. The committee has detailed and presented evidence that it says shows former President Donald Trump attempted what amounted to a coup to remain in office.

Kinzinger has been critical of his fellow GOP House Republican leaders who remain loyal to Trump and have distanced themselves from himself and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

Kinzinger’s participation has also angered “Trump World.” And even with the representative stating that he will not seek re-election, he is receiving profanity-laced voicemails and emails at his Capitol Hill office.

Now he has released an audio compilation of threats and insults made to his office. These are not like celebrities reading tweets about themselves on Jimmy Kimmel. These are vile and disturbing threats against Kinzinger, his family or Liz Cheney.

“Threats of violence over politics has increased heavily in the last few years. But the darkness has reached new lows,” Kinzinger wrote in his tweet. 

The video begins with a preface that says, “all voicemails, and phone calls are received by my interns, high school or college level, attempting to learn about the legislative process.”

In the first call, a man said he hoped the congressman naturally dies “as quickly as f—— possible.”

“You backstabbing son of a b—-,” another call said. “You go against Trump y’all know y’all mother——- are sitting up there lying. Like a damn dog.”

Several callers warned they knew where Kinzinger lived, including one in which a man said he would “go protest” in front of the lawmaker’s house.

“We know where your family is and we’re going to get you,” said the caller, who then cursed at Kinzinger and said he would “get your wife” and “get your kids.”

A woman said on one call that she prayed “if it be God’s will, that you suffer,” and a man on another call said he hoped someone kills “your nasty mom and your nasty wife.”

“You and Liz Cheney can both go to hell,” said one caller, who said he hoped Kinzinger gets terminal cancer. Listen below:

Last month, Kinzinger tweeted an image of a letter sent to his home that was addressed to his wife and threatened the lives of his family.

“The Darkness is spreading courtesy of cowardly leaders fearful of truth. Is the what you want @GOP? Pastors?” Kinzinger tweeted along with the photo of the letter.

According to NBC News, Kinzinger announced in October that he wouldn’t run for re-election this November. Who can blame him?
