Republican US Congressman Adam Kinzinger received a “shocking letter” from his family, disowning him for voting in favor of condemning former US President Donald Trump, according to CNN.
In a handwritten letter written by 11 members of the family of the deputy, the family said that Kinzinger “opposes his Christian principles and that he joined the army of demons and is a disappointment.”
She added, “President Trump is not perfect, but he is Christian … and the most embarrassing thing for us now (with three lines under it) is that we are related to you.”
For its part, the American Network described the message as “influential”, saying that the matter is sad because it divides families.
Last Saturday evening, the US Senate acquitted the former president of the charge of incitement to revolt, after the support of many Republicans.
57 members of the Senate voted to convict Trump, while 43 voted innocent. Seven Republican senators voted to convict Trump. The condemnation of the US president requires a two-thirds majority, or 67 deputies.
