First GOP Lawmaker Calls on Gaetz to Resign

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger is the first GOP lawmaker to call on Rep. Matt Gaetz to resign from Congress. Recent reports have emerged that Gaetz is under investigation for alleged sex trafficking and having sex with a minor.

Kinzinger shared a tweet, “Matt Gaetz needs to resign” with a link to an article by liberal media outlet The Daily Beast.

The Hill reports:

Kinzinger, a vocal critic of former President Trump and several of his allies, is the first Republican congressman to publicly call for Gaetz to resign.

Gaetz has long been an ally and defender of the former president.

Both Kinzinger and Gaetz have shared a contentious and, at times, heated relationship over the past year.

In early February, Kinzinger told The Washington Post that he had a “huge list” of GOP lawmakers he would like to see challenged for perpetuating unsupported theories surrounding the 2020 election. In particular, Kinzinger took aim at Gaetz and Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), another ardent Trump supporter, accusing them of prioritizing fame over legislating.

Kinzinger has become a contentious figure in the Republican Party, especially after voting to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial. Trump has vowed to support challengers to unseat lawmakers like Kinzinger which supported the second impeachment trial.

Rove is a deep swamper and cannot be trusted. Never trusted that guy and his white board. He and Bush helped lose the Georgia election. “Former President George W. Bush is reuniting with his one-time top political strategist to help support the Republican incumbent senators running in Georgia‘s twin Senate runoff elections, where the GOP’s majority in the chamber is up for grabs”. That along with Lin Wood telling republicans not to vote certainly helped the republicans lose the senate.

I’m thinking they all have no balls and don’t care to stick up for this country. They all work for the ppl and our second Admentment states we have every right to bare arms to overthrow a socialist government. It would be our right! They did this to protect the ppl. They knew what they were doing. That’s when our congress worked for the ppl and not some money socialist agenda.

Never could figure why everyone thought Rove was a genius! He let the DIMMs lie about W every day for four years and wouldn’t respond. His “great skill” led to W. winning against dullard Algore. A kumquat should be able to beat Algore!

If you do not represent the people who voted for you then why are you there? People in this country are innocent until proven guilty. No allegations by and unknown person or a person who ha an ax to grind etc. Innocent until proven guilty. When you take an oath to join and represent the platform you took. an oath to represent then YOU SHOULD RESIG!

Swallwell had his big fling with Fang Fang sharing secrets. There should be pictures of the left and the rinos all over the place, especially now that Hunter Biden has been shown in (compromising positions) with rotting teeth. Isn’t that what the Russians said they had on President Trump that Adam Schiff was so excited to get? NEVER MATERIALIZED DID IT.

I wonder, has Kitizinger called for the resignation of Eric Swalwell because he was banging Fang Fang. Who knows what national secrets that were discussed during pillow talk. How about Diane Feinstein? She employed a Chinese spy for 20 years. Has Kitizinger called for her resignation? And Maxine Waters, has he called for her resignation for promoting violence against members of President Trump’s administration? I could go on but bottom line is Kitizinger is a useful idiot tool of the Democrat Party.

Kinzinger will be politically done in 2022. He’s a complete jerk of a RINO, just like Romney, the worst kind. His own family sent him a letter disowning him for impeachment of President Trump. He is being primaried and #45 will make sure there will be a MAGA replacement!

Where is the proven evidence? I must have missed it.
Last time I check a person is incent until the facts have been proven against said person.
whom ever jumps to concussions before proven facts have been presented should consider their self just as guilty of bearing propaganda.

I’ll just be patient and see what is proven .
Just stating my own opinion for thought.

Demoncrats are communists at heart and as such are very good at communist techniques —– lies, deception, espionage (infiltrating the opposition) etc. That is why we have so many RINOS in the Republican Party as well as what anyone can see as massive government corruption. It is how obama got “elected” in the first place and why the fraud was never removed from office —– the GOP was complicit and in on the scam.

Didn’t Matt Gaetz just get married? How old is this rumor? I was under the impression that these “representatives” all had a fund to pay off the aides that they sexually abuse. So what is the big deal about something most of them do anyway? How about all of the crimes the democrats are committing and get away with? But most of all, isn’t this a tactic to get rid of any elected Representative or Senator that just is causing the democrats too much resistance to what democrats want?

How can any “true” Republican vote to impeach

Romney is jealous because he could not
defeat Obama, neither could McCain; but,
I cannot understand what Kinzinger’s beef is
with President Trump or Matt Gaetz;
other than Matt is a staunch supporter
of President Trump.

Well Rep. Barney Frank didn’t resign when confront by a sex scandal and surely Frank wasn’t the only one, over the years working the Beltway strip that hasn’t faced a problematic situation. Most likely Goetz will not resign in light of the fact that Hunter Biden is still muddying the Presidential waters with a lot more sensitive questionability.
