Kinzinger: GOP Breaking Rank on Impeachment Is 'Unrealistic'

(MSNBC's "Morning Joe")

The idea Republicans are breaking ranks after Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., said he believes President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses is "unrealistic," Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., said Tuesday.

"I do disagree with him," Rep. Kinzinger told MSNBC's "Morning Joe," even though he added he does like Amash personally. "There's never really been anything out here politically or in policy that we agree on, and this is one of those too."

Kinzinger said he has read special counsel Robert Mueller's report, and he saw no evidence of collusion on the part of Trump or his 2016 campaign, and there was no final ruling on impeachment.

"Even the Democrats aren't saying impeach right now," said Kinzinger, even though they have launched investigations.

"Look, they're in the majority," Kinzinger said. "That's their opportunity, their option to do it, and I just disagree. When you have most of the Democrats not even saying impeachment again, this idea there's going to be some shift in the Republican belief I think is unrealistic."

Kinzinger also discussed the worsening tensions in Iran, and added he's "concerned but not losing sleep over it."

"If you look back at Iranian behavior in the region for years, it's really been the same," said Kinzinger, a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard who has served during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Iran's behavior has been "terrible and atrocious" and the Trump administration is correct to respond, he added, as it makes "Iranian challenges to American personnel less likely and frankly if they do it, we should have an option to be able to defend our people and allies?"
