Video: Day of Rage: An In-Depth Look at How a Mob Stormed the Capitol

This is a must watch video.

We cannot ignore what happened on January 6th; we cannot ignore what caused it.

Reminder: The 2020 election was not stolen.

A six-month Times investigation has synchronized and mapped out thousands of videos and police radio communications from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, providing the most complete picture to date of what happened — and why.

As I have said before, we cannot let fear stop us from doing what is right.

While I believe an independent bipartisan commission is the best approach, I voted today in support of establishing a Select Committee for January 6th--because the truth matters.

Kinzinger Leads Bipartisan Bill Pushing Cyber Literacy to Counter Attacks

A cyberattack happens every 39 seconds. And since the pandemic, cyber crime has increased dramatically.

We must protect ourselves & our interests--and that starts with cyber education. I'm proud to lead this effort with my colleagues as we work to help prevent future attacks on all Americans.

This week, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) lead a bipartisan effort with his colleagues Representatives Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Marc Veasey (D-TX), and Chrissy Houlihan (D-PA) to introduce the American Cybersecurity Literacy Act.

Last week, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) reintroduced two pieces of legislation he authored in 2020 that will better protect Americans’ privacy and intellectual property.

Great meeting with constituents from the Huntington's Disease Society of America this week to talk about legislation that my colleague Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. and I sponsor in the House, the HD Parity Act.

This is shameful and embarrassing.

What the men and women of our U.S. Capitol Police and Washington Metropolitan Police Dept. went through that day to protect and serve in the face of a violent mob—it deserves to be recognized with the highest honor the House can bestow.

Their opposition to the bill drew condemnation from some of their House colleagues, with one calling it ‘a sad commentary’ on the House Republican Conference.

Kinzinger Op-Ed to Save Our Nuclear Fleet

From day one, I’ve said that Springfield needs to act to save our nuclear fleet. Their inaction thus far has been damaging to many across #IL16. We know nuclear energy is essential in #Illinois and I'm urging the Statehouse to do what’s right.

This week, an op-ed penned by Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) was published in the Peoria Journal Star.

Stay safe, everyone.

Serving on the House Foreign Affairs Committee is a privilege—one that Rep. Omar does not deserve. She has doubled down on equating the United States and Israel with terrorist organizations. Her views on American foreign policy are damaging and dangerous—leadership cannot turn a blind eye any longer.

EXCLUSIVE: House Republicans who broke with the GOP in February in voting for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to be removed from her committee assignments after making controversial comments, are now demanding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from her assignments as well, amid back...

By waiving sanctions on Nord Stream 2 pipeline, downplaying the concerns of our CEEC allies, and appeasing Putin as his cyber warriors attack the United States, the Biden Administration has further emboldened authoritarians around the world.

We cannot rebuild transatlantic partnerships this way.

The Ukrainian president says Nord Stream 2 will hurt Kyiv.

With 4 nuclear generating stations in #IL16, the delays in Springfield have serious implications on my constituents. In order to save Illinois’ clean energy future, we must save #nuclear.

This week, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) introduced legislation that would establish an emissions avoidance program for certain nuclear reactors and authorize funding for ‘nuclear closure communities.’

After murdering 600,000 Syrian men, women, and children—and forcing 6 million to become refugees—it’s clear the Syrian people need change. This sham election means nothing. #AssadMustGo #FreeSyria

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won a fourth term in office with 95.1% of the votes in an election that will extend his rule over a country ruined by war but which opponents and the West say was marked by fraud.

We cannot leave them behind. https://kinzinger.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=402743

This week, Congressmen Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), along with 31 of their House colleagues, introduced the Afghan Allies Protection Act.
