Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger Respond to Newt Gingrich Saying That Lawmakers on Jan. 6 Committee Could Be Thrown in Jail

Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger have responded to Newt Gingrich’s assertion that lawmakers on the January 6 committee could be thrown in jail if Republicans win the midterms.

Gingrich made the claim while speaking to Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures.

“I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down,” Gingrich said. “And the wolves are going to find out that they’re now sheep and they’re the ones who are in fact, I think, face a real risk of jail for the kinds of laws they’re breaking.”

Cheney saw the comments and responded in a tweet.

“A former Speaker of the House is threatening jail time for members of Congress who are investigating the violent January 6 attack on our Capitol and our Constitution,” the Never-Trump Republican wrote. “This is what it looks like when the rule of law unravels.”

Likewise, Kinzinger took to social media to respond to Gingrich — but he simply posted a GIF from Billy Madison.
