Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), a military veteran, tweeted his disgust with a comment by the President Monday morning that quotes a guest on “Fox and Friends” warning that a successful impeachment would spark a “Civil War.”

Kinzinger occasionally criticizes the President, but over his career has voted in line with Trump’s priorities 94.3 percent of the time, per FiveThirtyEight.

Kinzinger is a lieutenant colonel with the Air Force and has been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
