Rep. Adam Kinzinger told CNN's State of the Union on this New Year's Day, that if Trump is not charged and guilty of a crime then he doesn't know who would be.

Host Dana Bash opened her interview by discussing the January 6 Select Committee and their findings with the outgoing congressman.

"Do you think president Trump ultimately will be charged for crimes?" Bash asked.

"As we got into this, I'm like, if this is not a crime, I don't know what is," Kinzinger said." "If a president can incite an insurrection and not be held accountable, there's no limit to what a president can or can't do."

Bash asked if he believes Trump will be charged.

"If he is not guilty of a crime --I frankly fear for the future of this country because now every future president can say, hey, here is the bar -- and the bar is; do everything you can to stay in power." Kinzinger said.

I concur.

Trump has tried to turn the US presidency into his own personal fiefdom. An imperial fascist stronghold, ruled by one man, where no laws apply because he is all-powerful.

And if you dare disappoint him or speak ill of anything he does or says then all hell will be brought down upon you.
