Rep. Kinzinger’s wife receives written death threat against entire family

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), one of two Republicans on the Jan. 6 House select committee, shared an especially disturbing threat his family received recently.

According to the Daily Caller, the Illinois Republican shared a copy of a letter addressed to his wife which claimed that Kinzinger himself would soon be “executed.” The letter made a number of disturbing claims and threats, and included death threats against his wife and child.

The letter starts with a profane slur at Kinzinger’s wife before going on to say “”that pimp you married not only broke his oath, he sold his soul. Yours and Christian’s too! Adam’s activities have hurt not only this country, but countless patriotic and God fearing families.”

The disturbing letter concludes: “Therefore, although it might take time, he will be executed. But don’t worry! You and Christian will be joining Adam in Hell too! We find it blasphemous that you name the son of the devil Christian!”

ABC News caught up with the Illinois congressman to get his reaction to the letter.

“Look, I’m not worried personally. This threat that came in, it was mailed to my house,” Kinzinger said.

He added: “We got it a couple of days ago and it threatens to execute me, as well as my wife and 5-month-old child. We’ve never seen or had anything like that. It was sent from the local area.”

As Axios reported, Kinzinger recently insisted that as long as lies about the 2020 election continue to spread, there will be “violence in the future,” adding, “And until we get a grip on telling people the truth, we can’t expect any differently.”
