Adam Kinzinger shares letter sent to his family threatening to execute his wife and son

GOP representative Adam Kinzinger shares a letter to his family threatening to execute himself, his wife and son and warns that ‘more violence is coming’

  • Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger had sent a threatening letter to his house and addressed it to his wife; it also mentioned the couple’s young baby
  • “That pimp you married didn’t just break his oath, he sold his soul. Yours and Christian’s too,” the letter reads
  • His office said the threat had been reported
  • “There will be violence in the future, I’m going to tell you. And until we get to grips with telling people the truth, we can’t expect anything else,” Kinzinger told ABC

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger Sunday shared a threatening letter sent to his family warning “there is violence in the future.”

He said the letter was sent to his home and addressed to his wife Sofia.

The Illinois congressman is one of two Republicans on the committee investigating the Jan. 6 Uprising in the Capitol. Former President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the panel for its work.

The letter accuses Kinzinger of betraying his country and “God-fearing families.” The congressman defied the Republican leadership when he took a role on the panel.

Kinzinger posted a photo of the letter to his Twitter account, noting that the contents “threatened the life of my family.” It mentions the couple’s son, Christian Adam Kinzinger, who was born in January.

“That pimp you married didn’t just break his oath, he sold his soul. Yours and Christian’s too,” the letter reads.

“Although it may take some time, he will be executed. But do not worry! You and Christian will join Adam in hell too!” the letter read.

Kinzinger told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that he was not personally concerned about his safety, but he was concerned about his family.

“Look, I’m not personally concerned. This threat that came in was mailed to my house. We got it a few days ago and it threatens to execute me as well as my wife and 5 month old child. We’ve never seen or had anything like it. It was sent from the area,” he said.

He added that he feared violence would ensue.

“I’m not worried – but now that I have a wife and kids it’s a little different of course. There are people who — there’s violence in the future, I’m going to tell you. And until we get to grips with telling people the truth, we can’t expect anything else,” he said.

A Kinzinger spokesperson said: Business Insider their office has reported the threat and they are taking “extra precautions for the congressman’s family.”

Threats against members of Congress are mounting.

Last May, the US Capitol Police reported that the number of threats against lawmakers has more than doubled from the previous year. The department said it had investigated about 9,000 potential threats in 2020.

Lawmakers are allowed to use campaign money to fund the security of their homes, and that funding rose after Trump’s second impeachment trial.

Shortly after the January 6 uprising, the Federal Election Commission voted to allow members of Congress to use campaign funds to hire personal bodyguards.

In his interview with ABC on Sunday, Kinzinger criticized Trump and the Republican leadership.

“Unfortunately, my party has completely failed the American people. It makes me sad, but it’s a fact,” he said.

Kinzinger said Trump knew what he was doing in the wake of the 2020 election, when the former president falsely claimed he had won and was a victim of voter fraud.

He said he was very concerned about 2024. Trump has said he could run for president again, but made no formal announcement.

“Wake up, America. Wake up, Republicans, because this isn’t going to be good for you if you think it is,” Kinzinger said.
