    5 Republicans Who Voted for Trump Impeachment Have Learned What It Cost

    Published on

    Tom Rice, John Katko, Fred Upton, Adam Kinzinger, and Anthony Gonzalez are members of the team. Five Republican members of Congress who voted for Trump’s impeachment.

    Rice lost the recent Republican primary, and the remaining candidates are not seeking re-election.

    Political decisions have consequences. Rice, Katko, Upton, Kingzinger, and Gonzalez’s careers are examples of this.

    Illinois Representative Kinzinger has been arguably the most defiant. The New York Times reported that when confronted by members of his own family who were skeptical of his vote against Trump in his second impeachment, Kinzinger claimed they had been brainwashed by conservative churches.

    Following the outgoing president’s assertions that the 2020 election was stolen, Kinzinger adopted a firm stance against Trump, despite having supported him 90% of the time.

    South Carolina’s Rice is the first of the ten Republicans who supported the second impeachment to be removed from office.

    Besides the four who decided not to run, the remaining five Republicans are Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Peter Meijer of Michigan, Jaime Herrera Beutler and Dan Newhouse, both of Washington, and David Valadao of California.

    Prior to being defeated by Trump-backed state Rep. Russell Fry, Rice told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Trump was “harmful” to the Republican Party.

    Initially, Rice was not going to vote for the second impeachment but was displeased with Trump’s reaction to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incursion, saying the president responded weakly and lacked “contrition” about the event, The Post and Courier reported. Read more…
