Former GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who flamed Donald Trump for saying the 2020 election was stolen, claimed on CNN that some of his family members disowned him for his criticism of the former president. After the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Kinzinger called for Trump to be removed from office.
