Adam Kinzinger’s smear campaign against private biz owner falls apart when he fails to produce promised ‘receipts’

RINO Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) has gone, unarmed, into a very public battle of wits with X Strategies CEO Alex Bruesewitz, and he is currently getting slaughtered for failing to present the proof he promised that Bruesewitz fraudulently accepted PPP loans “despite having no employees.”

The saga that has been playing out on Twitter over the last few days began with Kinzinger calling “every Republican” who is alarmed by the FBI and DOJ’s decision to raid former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence “un-American.”

Bruesewitz, whose organization works to promote and elect MAGA Republicans to office, responded to Kinzinger, calling him out for his hypocrisy.

“You praised Joe Biden for calling 75 Million Americans ‘enemies of the state’ but you’re angry that Trump criticized the corrupt & completely weaponized FBI & DOJ?” he tweeted, adding, “@AdamKinzinger, you have issues man.”

Unable to answer for his duplicity, Kinzinger shot back an accusation that demanded substantiating sources.

“Alex did you pay back your PPP loan despite having no employees?” he replied.

Problem is, according to Bruesewitz, Kinzinger knew he was lying when he made the accusation.

“Yesterday, Rep. @AdamKinzinger FALSELY accused me, a private citizen, of defrauding the US Gov’t,” the CEO tweeted on Labor Day. “He stated that I took PPP Loans ‘despite having no employees.’ Only problem is, he knew I had employees.”

Bruesewitz wasn’t about to back down. He fired back with a seven-page letter from his attorney directing the Trump-hating lawmaker to “cease and desist and to retract all defamation, slander, and/or libel.”

Kinzinger was given five days “to retract his defamatory statement & issue [Bruesewitz] a public apology.”

Kinzinger puffed up his chest and declared, “I always have receipts.”

“Typical Trump type. Speaks a tough game but when the fire comes back, can’t handle it,” the Never-Trumper stated. “In fact the second you become a political consultant you become a public figure.”

“That said, later tomorrow, I will release more info in this,” he promised on Tuesday. “I always have receipts.”

But, as it appears is always the case with Adam Kinzinger, he was incapable of walking his very tough talk.

In a painfully long thread, Kinzinger first tries to suggest that Bruesewitz and his business partner, Derek Utley, were the only two employees of the company when the loan was received before admitting he really doesn’t know anything relevant to the argument he is attempting to make and whether or not Bruesewitz did something illegal was never really his point.

Realizing he forgot to bring receipts to his receipt party, he decided to change the party’s theme.

It was never about Bruesewitz broke the law, it was about whether or not political consulting is “the best use of taxpayer money?”

“[I]n the future, maybe political consultants with increasing profits based on division and anger should not benefit from taxpayer money,” Kinzinger offered.

So, in other words, the guy who always has receipts had little to bolster his bravado than his own opinion: The only ones who should benefit from taxpayer dollars are those who are politically aligned with him.

Following Kinzinger’s exhausting thread, Bruesewitz, accompanied by his lawyer, took to Newsmax to discuss Kinzinger’s “malicious defamatory attacks.”

“It is a disgrace to our nation that a sitting member of Congress maliciously defamed a young, private business owner!” he tweeted, along with a clip of the segment.

“He lied,” the 15-year-old businessman stated of Kinzinger. “He knew he was lying.”
