Rep. Adam Kinzinger: This is a coup attempt. Trump must stand up and say he lost

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R) Illinois tells CNN: “This is despicable… Anywhere else around the world, we would call this a coup attempt. That’s what I think it is.”

He adds: “But have no fear, the guard rails of democracy and the constitution will hold. And we will succeed. When this is over, we will look back and realize where this cancer has come from, and go after it.”

On Trump’s call for peaceful behavior, Kinzinger says it is not enough. “That’s cowardice. Cowardice is trying to just say ‘I want you to be peaceful.’ He needs to stand up and say ‘I lost the election. Let the count go ahead. The conspiracies I’ve been spewing out are false. Period.”
