Kinzinger Blasts “Complete Lie” By Kevin McCarthy That He Once Sought Air Force Secretary Post Under Trump

Newsweek reports:

Representative Adam Kinzinger, an Illinois Republican, assessed that lies are “standard” under the leadership of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, and former President Donald Trump.

Kinzinger, a staunch Trump critic, made the remark on Twitter Thursday after McCarthy claimed that the GOP congressman had angled to become Air Force secretary under the former president’s administration. The Illinois Republican quickly rejected McCarthy’s claim.

“Complete lie. Standard nowadays in the trump/McCarthy playbook,” Kinzinger tweeted, sharing a post from CNN reporter Malanie Zanona highlighting the House Minority Leader’s claim.
