Sofia and I extend our deepest condolences to the Royal Family and the entire Commonwealth. May Queen Elizabeth's memory be eternal and may she rest in peace.

Great to welcome our 2022 Congressional Art Competition Winner to our nation’s capital last month. Marlen’s incredible artwork is already hanging in the halls of the U.S. Capitol, being viewed by the many visitors, staff, and Members of Congress who walk these halls. We are so proud to have her talent on display, representing our 16th district.

Anger is being spoon-fed to the American people by "leaders" who stoke fear with lies, conspiracies, and vitriolic rhetoric. It's damaging and eroding our ability to be civil with those with whom we disagree.

Threats of violence over politics has increased heavily in the last few years. But the darkness has reached new lows. My new interns made this compilation of recent calls they’ve received while serving in my DC office.

WARNING: this video contains foul & graphic language.

The pure evil on display in Highland Park has rocked our state, and the nation. As we grieve for the victims and those injured, we remain especially grateful to the law enforcement officers who apprehended the shooter & to the first responders for swiftly reacting and saving countless lives.

Wishing you all a happy & safe Fourth of July!

Today as we celebrate America’s independence, we remember those who fought to protect our freedoms and all who continue to defend our democracy. To strengthen our self-governance, we must accept truth and put the interests of our country—not any one political party—first. 🇺🇸🎆

Kinzinger Appointed to Negotiate Supply Chain & Innovation Bills

The United States should never face shortages of critical items--from PPE and pharmaceutical ingredients during a pandemic to baby formula in "normal" times. Congress can and should transform our reactive strategy to a proactive one by sending a bipartisan supply chain bill to POTUS.

As a conferee on this legislative package, I remain committed to bringing manufacturing home and bolstering our supply chains for greater economic and national security.

Today, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) was appointed to the Conference Committee to negotiate with the Senate and produce a final legislative package covering supply chains, innovation, and international competition.

What we’ve uncovered at the January 6th Committee should concern every American. The truth is not political and the facts are damning. I’d urge my fellow Republicans still in denial to ask themselves how they’d react if a Democrat in the White House did this. It would not and cannot go unchecked.

To recap: the former President directed his supporters to march to the Capitol where his VP, Cong. leadership, nearly all Members & staff were...knowing that many of those marching were armed. He then tussled with Secret Service, grabbing for the steering wheel to be there so he could do...what? What was President Trump looking to do at the U.S. Capitol that day?

It’s chilling to think where we'd be without the DOJ officials who upheld their oath to serve their country and refused to do President Trump's personal bidding.

Speaking truth to power takes courage. Thank you to those who have bravely stepped forward to testify January 6th Committee.

Kinzinger shares threat to family

These threats are deeply disturbing, and yet I know I’m not alone in receiving these graphic letters and phon calls. This should be a wake-up call to the depravity in our country--a dark reality reflecting the anger being spoon-fed to the American people by “leaders” who refuse to tell the truth. It's shameful.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) on Sunday shared a death threat his family received over his participation in the House select committee’s investigation of the Jan. 6, 2021, …

Reps. Kinzinger, Bustos, Brown, Ryan and Sen. Brown Lead Effort to Make Sure American Flags Are Made in America

This week, we celebrated Flag Day and fittingly, my colleagues and I re-introduced legislation that ensures American flags purchased by the government are both produced and manufactured by American workers here in the United States. This may seem like common sense, but so many of our American flag products sold here in the U.S. are made in China and elsewhere. And frankly, it has to stop.

Today, I’m proud to co-lead the All-American Flag Act and I look forward to our continued work to bolster our supply chains and bring manufacturing home to America. 🇺🇸

WASHINGTON – Today, Representatives Cheri Bustos (IL-17), Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), Tim Ryan (OH-13) and Shontel Brown (OH-11), alongside Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), introduced the All-American Flag Act. If signed into law, the bill would require the federal government to only purchase flags that ...

I look forward to leading this hearing next week and presenting our findings to the American people.

Donald Trump did not receive enough votes to win the 2020 election. He was told this repeatedly, as our witnesses today shared, but he decided to declare victory anyway. His perpetuation of the Big Lie led to January 6.

Those are the facts; the truth is not political.

Tonight, we’ll begin to uncover the facts of what happened on and lay them out for the American people. We owe it to the next generation to uphold our oath and defend our democracy. Self-governance requires accountability and responsibility—from each and every one of us.

This is what happened on January 6th. The world watched as a violent mob attacked the United States Capitol; unleashing their rage on our frontline defenders. It was an insurrection—and it’s a moment in our history that we must ensure can never happen again.

Massacre in Tadamon: how two academics hunted down a Syrian war criminal

The 2013 Tadamon, Syria massacre is horrific, and it's disturbingly just one example of the countless atrocities committed by the Assad regime. We must shed light on this heinous event and hold these war criminals accountable.

This week, I sent a letter to the White House with my colleague Congressman Brendan Boyle calling on the President to target sanctions on the Syrian military unit and key officials directly responsible. You can read it in full here: https://bit.ly/3mbC1yj.

Rep. Kinzinger on Sensible Gun Reform in America

As a strong defender of the Second Amendment, I believe we have to be the ones putting forward reasonable solutions to gun violence. I'm focused on saving lives, and I'm hopeful more of my colleagues will reach across the aisle to do the same.

To celebrate is to remember and honor our fallen heroes—those who gave the last full measure of devotion in service to this great nation. Today, I’m thinking of my friend Capt. Andreas O’Keeffe and countless others who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice.

Cheers to our friends in Georgia on 31 years of regained independence! The Georgian people know all too well the devastation Ukraine is facing against Russia’s aggression. The United States stands firmly in support of the sovereignty of these two nations and we value our continued friendship. 🇬🇪🇺🇸

Last week, I spoke with CNN’s John Berman New Day about the massacre in Buffalo. One week, and here we are again. We cannot ignore this; we cannot continue to feed people a steady diet of fear & anger and not expect dangerous outcomes.

24/05/2022

Sickened by the news out of Texas. I’m at a loss and my heart is heavy. This cannot continue to happen. We have to do something; utilizing the resources necessary to thwart these senseless crimes.

Su***de is the second leading cause of death in people aged 10-34 and it’s the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.

In honor of , I want to say thank you to the mental health professionals, crisis line operators, and su***de prevention organizations like BraveHearts Therapeutic Riding & Educational Center, The Trevor Project, NAMI and countless others for their dedication to providing the necessary resources for those at risk and for helping address the vast mental health needs in communities across the country.

If you or someone you know is having thoughts of su***de, you are not alone. Help is here. The National Su***de Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7, offering free counseling services at 1-800-273-TALK.

Taking care of our mental health is critical. So please make it a priority!

The baby formula shortage is reaching crisis levels. We need the FDA to step up and address this issue now.

With a four-month-old baby at home, I know the impact this issue is having on families nationwide. At a time of such division, I hope we can find it within ourselves to come to an agreement on a solution for BABY FORMULA.

Opinion | Treating Ukraine’s Wounded Civilians, I Saw Horror and Hope

I'm proud to know Dr. Samer Attar of Northwestern Medicine & Syrian American Medical Society- SAMS and even more proud of the incredible work he does to help our Illinois communities AND our international ones.

From to , he has risked his life to help those in dire need. He has gone into the gravest of situations, and volunteered in their hospitals--bearing witness to the devastation and horror of these barbaric attacks on civilians.

In both places, he's seen innocent people targeted--and we know that in both Syria and Ukraine, Putin has acted with impunity as he's killed thousands with his cruelty.

Enough is enough. We have to stand up for humanity. As Dr. Attar says, "all we have is each other." Read his full piece here:

The injuries they suffered in Kharkiv brought back memories of my experience as a volunteer in Syria.

Presidential order to lifelong crusade: Rockford WWII vet still sharing about Holocaust

Sharing stories and reminding the world of what happened is crucial to ensuring we remember the truth of the Holocaust and ensure it never happens again. When we say “never again” we have to mean it and that requires educating the next generation. Thank you to heroes like our very own WWII veteran Don Bein for his dedication and service.

Army veteran Don Bein has been talking about his first-hand accounts of World War II and the Holocaust since the war ended nearly 77 years ago.

With Russia’s War on Ukraine, Kinzinger Introduces New AUMF

Words matter, but so do our actions.

I’m introducing this AUMF as a clear redline so the Administration can take appropriate action if Russia uses chemical, biological, and/or nuclear weapons. We must stand up for humanity and we must stand with our allies.

My full press release here:

Today, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) announced his introduction of a joint resolution that would authorize the use of U.S. Armed Forces to defend the territorial integrity of Ukraine in the event that Vladimir Putin escalates his unjust war against our democratic allies

When Bad Guys Think They’re Good Guys (with Rep. Adam Kinzinger)

When it comes to January 6, I don’t expect to change minds on the truth of what happened. But years from now when my son learns about this in school, I’ll be able to look him in the eye, proud of the stand I’ve taken to defend democracy no matter the cost. And not many of my colleagues will be able to do the same.

Listen to my full conversation with The Bulwark podcast here:

Most of the GOP hasn’t responded to the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol with much courage. But our guest has. This week, Sarah talks with Rep. Adam Kinzinger about our focus groups’ reactions to the attacks (including the conspiracy theories) and whether they think President Trump was res...

Peace is not possible with Putin. He won't stop his brutality because of sanctions. He will use chemical weapons and any means necessary to win. This moment requires swift action, not continued fear and weakness from the West. Every minute we delay is another life lost in .
