Adam Kinzinger gets roasted alive on Twitter after clueless take on Fifth Amendment

Perpetually whiny Rep. Adam Kinzinger wound down his congressional career with an exclamation point on his contempt for the United States Constitution by suggesting that the Fifth Amendment lacks any validity when it comes to political enemies.

The outgoing Illinois Republican who, along with fellow soon-to-be former lawmaker Rep. Liz Cheney, eagerly allowed themselves to be used as tools of the spiteful Nancy Pelosi by sitting on her hand-picked January 6 committee, drew a strong reaction for a tweet inferring that witnesses who exercised their Fifth Amendment rights to not incriminate themselves were guilty of wrongdoing.

“Quick reminder: pleading the 5th is because you don’t want to incriminate yourself. We respect the 5th amendment, but pleading the 5th says a lot,” tweeted Kinzinger.

With the Soviet-style tribunal having wrapped up its work – at least in its current incarnation – with a criminal referral of former President Donald J. Trump to Attorney General Merrick Garland’s viciously partisan Justice Department, Kinzinger took a bow with his clueless tweet that led to him being roasted on a spit by Twitter users.

Criminal defense lawyer Scott Greenfield pointed out, “if the exercise of a constitutional right is, itself, damning, then there is no constitutional right.”

“It’s a constitutional right. Nothing is inferred or implied by exercising it,” wrote attorney Jason Roberge.

Others on Twitter unloaded on Kinzinger for his spectacularly asinine take.

As Kinzinger and his ilk have repeatedly made clear, the political enemies of the fully authoritarian Democratic Party and its RINO stooges are unworthy of having constitutional rights. Fortunately for Americans, he will no longer be in a position where he can do further damage.
