Newly retired lawmaker Rep. Adam Kinzinger was just hired by CNN to be the network’s new senior political commentator.
Kinzinger, who is referred to as a RINO in many republican circles, has been one of President Trump’s biggest critics so it makes sense he would run to CNN shortly after leaving Congress.
Previously, Kinzinger voted to impeach Trump and was part of Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th Committee.
“Happy to join the team CNN!” Kinzinger reported.

To be honest, Kinzinger may not have been a great Congressman but he is a good actor.
Check him out crying during a January 6th Committee hearing:

Rep. Kinzinger, who served as a US representative from Illinois, served just six years in Congress.
His time at Capitol Hill was short-lived after the Illinois House of Representatives approved a new congressional district map that got rid of Kinzinger’s seat.
Earlier on Wednesday, Kinzinger made his first appearance on CNN, check him out:

It appears everyone who decided to become a never Trumper either landed a job with a liberal news outlet or received a book deal.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Rep. Kinzinger used his farewell speech to Congress to accuse Republicans of being racist, ignorant, and “who only stoke hatred.”
GOP “used to believe in a big tent that welcomed the tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Now, they shelter the ignorant, racist, who only stoke anger and hatred,” RINO Kinzinger said.
