“I honestly don’t think impeachment is the smart move because I think it victimizes Donald Trump again,” Kinzinger said.
“I think it would be the right move if we had more than basically 10 days left of the administration,” Kinzinger explained. “I mean, the fact that you mentioned we’re not going to be able to get through a trial. So, yeah, he’ll be impeached a second time, but also exonerated in theory a second time.”
Despite opposing impeachment, Kinzinger has made it clear that he wants Trump out of office — either through Trump’s resignation or by Vice President Mike Pence invoking the 25th Amendment.
