"Until recently, Adam Kinzinger was a forgettable lower than average Republican congressman from Illinois," Carlson announced. "At some point last year, Kinzinger had a profound personal crisis and went completely off the deep end. He started crying uncontrollably in public. He joined Nancy Pelosi's January 6 Committee."
"Kinzinger is now the self-styled enemy of insurrectionists everywhere," Carlson went on. "If you dare to instruct or even think about the possibility of insurrection, Adam Kinzinger will burst into tears and will try to throw you into prison."
The Fox News host explained that Kinzinger’s love for Ray Epps is "strange," considering he was recorded on camera provoking violence and was initially on the FBI's "wanted" list.
Adding, "Adam Kinzinger loves Ray Epps. He spent the last 24 hours sticking up for Ray Epps on Twitter against all comers."
"How strange is that?" Carlson asked. "It's impossible to overstate the strangeness. It literally defies description."
"Now by the standards that Adam Kinzinger upholds, that is a crime. Several other people have been arrested for standing there, including DEA agent Mark Ibrahim. But not Rey Epps. He was not arrested and he was never charged for anything," Carlson stated. "Instead Ray Epps has been rewarded at least; with the love of Adam Kinzinger."
The Fox News host continued to describe how Kinzinger "thanked" Ray Epps for speaking to the January 6 Committee, though won't provide details to the public on who he is and what his role was on that day.
"We thank him," Kinzinger wrote yesterday on Twitter.
"Once again Adam Kinzinger is talking to a man who helped stage managed the insurrection that Adam Kinzinger says he's devoted his life to fight it," Carlson went on, firing back at the Republican congressman.
"There is nothing normal about this. There is no rational explanation for this," Carlson stated. "Adam Kinzinger is lying. Kinzinger is withholding critical information from the public."
Throughout Tuesday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on domestic terrorism threats one year after January 6, Sen. Tom Cotton grilled National Security Division Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen of the Justice Department over his apparent lack of answers to numerous questions Cotton asked, including why Ray Epps was removed from the FBI's most wanted list.
