Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) on Tuesday had some harsh words for Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and his attitude toward the pro-Trump riots at the United States Capitol building.
During an interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, Kinzinger was asked whether he thought GOP lawmakers such as Hawley and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) would take their jobs seriously and ask intelligent questions of FBI Director Christopher Wray about intelligence failures leading up to the January 6th riots.
Kinzinger expressed little hope, however, that Hawley would rise to the occasion, and he pointed to the Missouri senator's speech at CPAC in which he defended his decision to challenge President Joe Biden's electoral victory even after the riots at the Capitol.
"All you have to do is see Josh Hawley's smug face at CPAC as he stood in front, getting this adulation from the crowd," Kinzinger said. "He's out there feeling great about it -- there are five people dead."
Kinzinger went on to say that the pro-Trump riots were an "embarrassment" to the United States and have made it significantly more difficult for America to credibly promote democracy elsewhere in the world.
