Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) appeared on ABC Sunday to break down the January 6th Commission’s first session. He also implied that there is more to come by way of subpoena.

First, co-anchor Jonathan Karl asked Kinzinger for his response to Rep. Bennie Thompson’s (D-MS) comments saying more subpoenas are coming. Kinzinger backed up his Democrat colleague. Specifically he said he would support subpoenas to even Reps. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Jim Jordan (R-OH).

“I would support subpoenas to anybody that can shed light on that,” Kinzinger said. “If that’s the leader, that’s the leader. If it’s anybody that talked to the president that can provide us that information, I want to know what the president was doing every moment of that day.”

Because there is some dispute to former President Trump’s response to stop the riots, Kinzinger said he’d be willing to investigate all the calls Trump made that day.

“I want to know if the National Guard took five or six hours to get to Capitol Hill, did the president make any calls?” Kinzinger said. “And if he didn’t, why? And if he did, of course, then how come the National Guard still takes five hours? I think, had the president picked up the phone and made a call, the Guard would have been there immediately.”

That day, Trump did in fact make calls. He misdialed Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) just as rioters were entering the Capitol. He wanted to talk to Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) instead, so Lee handed over his phone.

But Kinzinger claimed members of Congress have nothing to fear. “”f anybody’s scared of this investigation I ask you one question, what are you afraid of?” the Illinois lawmaker said. “I mean, either you’re afraid of being discovered, of having some culpability in it or, you know what? If you — if you think it wasn’t a big deal, then you should allow this to go forward.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’

At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”

Speaking on the Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”

“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”

“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
