‘There is violence in the future’: Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger reveals death threat he received in the mail outlining plan to EXECUTE him, his wife and their 5-month-old baby

  • Adam Kinzinger said he and his family received a letter at their home in which the author threatened to execute him, his wife Sofia and their baby Sebastian 
  • Kinzinger is on House select committee investigating Jan.6 attack on US Capitol
  • The author of letter said Kinzinger had ‘broken his oath’ by being on committee 

Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger warned of ‘violence in the future’ as he revealed he received a death threat outlining a plan to execute him, his wife and their five-month-old baby.

Kinzinger, one of two Republicans on the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, said the threat was mailed to his house a couple of days ago. 

The letter, addressed to Kinzinger’s wife Sofia, outlined how the author planned to ‘execute’ the couple and their five-month-old son Sebastian because Kinzinger ‘broke his oath’ and ‘sold his soul’ by participating in the House committee.

Kinzinger, speaking on ‘This Week’ on ABC News, said: ‘This threat that came in, it was mailed to my house. 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,’ Kinzinger, who represents Illinois’ 16th congressional district, added.

He said that he’s not worried about his personal safety, but he is concerned about his wife and son. 

‘I don’t worry – but now that I have a wife and kids, of course, it’s a little different,’ Kinzinger added. ‘There’s violence in the future, I’m going to tell you. And until we get a grip on telling people the truth, we can’t expect any differently.’

Kinzinger posted the letter on Twitter and wrote: ‘Here is the letter. Addressed to my wife, sent to my home, threatening the life of my family. The Darkness is spreading courtesy of cowardly leaders fearful of truth. Is that what you want GOP?’

The letter reads:  ‘Sofia, you are one stupid c***. 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. 

‘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.’

Kinzinger’s spokesperson said his office reported the threat to police and they are ‘taking extra precautions for the Congressman’s family’.

As the Jan. 6 House committee continues to hold its public hearings about its investigation into the Capitol riot, Kinzinger said former President Donald Trump has ‘utterly failed the American people at truth’, arguing that Trump ‘knew what he was doing’ ahead of the Capitol siege.

‘I certainly think the president is guilty of knowing what he did, seditious conspiracy, being involved in these, you know, kind of different segments of pressuring the [justice department], vice president [Mike Pence], et cetera,’ Kinzinger said. 

 ‘Obviously, you know, we’re not a criminal charges committee, so I want to be careful in specifically using that language, but I think what we’re presenting before the American people certainly would rise to a level of criminal involvement by a president.’

Kinzinger also said that Trump’s actions show he ‘definitely’ failed to maintain his oath to uphold the US constitution.

‘The oath has to matter here,’ Kinzinger said. ‘Your personal demand to stand for the constitution has to matter.’

Kinzinger’s comments came after Trump on Friday lashed out at the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection as he continued to tease his plans for a third presidential run. 

Speaking to religious conservatives at a sprawling resort near the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Trump blasted the committee’s efforts as a ‘theatrical production of partisan political fiction’ and insisted he had done nothing wrong.

‘What you’re seeing is a complete and total lie. It’s a complete and total fraud,’ he told the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s ‘Road to Majority’ conference. 

He dismissed the harrowing video footage and searing testimony presented by the committee — including first-hand accounts from senior aides and family members — as having been selectively edited. And he downplayed the insurrection as ‘a simple protest that got out hand.’

Trump’s appearance at an event long known as a testing ground for presidential hopefuls comes as he has been actively weighing when he might formally launch another White House campaign. 

The debate, according to people familiar with the discussions, centers on whether to make a formal announcement later this summer or fall or, in accordance with tradition, wait until after the November midterm elections.

While allies insist he has yet to make a final decision about his plans, Trump for months has been broadcasting his intentions, and continued to tease them Friday.

‘One of the most urgent tasks facing the next Republican president — I wonder who that will be,’ Trump said at one point, prompting a standing ovation and chants of ‘USA!’

‘Would anybody like me to run for president?’ he asked the crowd, unleashing more cheers.

Ralph Reed, chair of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, said that, for now, ‘We don’t know whether or not he will run, although certainly given his speech, I think he wanted to let everybody know that that is his plan.’

Trump has spent the past year and a half holding rallies, delivering speeches and using his endorsements to exact revenge and further shape the party in his image.
