    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.

    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.

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