Kinzinger Attempts Using 4th Grade Psychology on Trump and Friends

The further we find ourselves along in the saga of the January 6th select committee, the more frequently we seem to find evidence of their desperation – and that’s saying something about a group whose stint began with an entrapment scheme and contempt charges for Steve Bannon.

The committee is up against a rather hard deadline, as the “red wave” that appears to be forming off the coast of the 2022 midterms will almost certainly be washing them back out to the political sea from whence they came.  They have weeks, maybe a few months, to make some sort of impact before the election season buries them in the news cycle, followed then by the first inklings of the 2024 contest.

And so, as they continue to flail frantically against this inevitability, they’ve grown a bit careless in their narrative.

Take the latest from Adam Kinzinger as an example, in which the never-Trump Republican has begun to use 4th grade psychology in an attempt to rouse some sort of response from the Trump camp.

In a series of Sunday tweets, Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Donald Trump and his allies, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, are “scared” following last week’s testimony by Cassidy Hutchinson before the Jan. 6 select committee.

The comments were paltry at best.

“This BIPARTISAN committee has been able to find out things that up until recently were denied by the Jan 6th truthers, so they are left with trying to discredit a young woman with more courage than they could muster in a lifetime. Except… that isn’t working,” Kinzinger tweeted.

“Cassidy doesn’t seek the limelight, but she is compelled with honor. She didn’t even have to swear an oath to the constitution like Kevin, Elise, Kristi Noem and others did. But she volunteered to come under oath to tell what she knows. She is a better person than them all. “

And then came the most childish drivel of all:

Kinzinger said earlier this week new witnesses have come forward in the investigation following Hutchinson’s testimony.

Trump loyalists were described as “genuinely shocked” following Hutchinson’s testimony, which included reports that the former president lunged at a Secret Service member and tried to get to the Capitol during the Jan. 6 attack.

“They’re all scared” Kinzinger added. “They should be.”

Calling someone a scaredy cat hasn’t been an effective response to trouble since sometime during recess when you were still worried about cooties, yet here we are watching members of the J6 committee dust this childish nonsense off as though their political life depended on it…because it very well might.
