Adam Kinzinger, closing statement last night:
But if January 6 has reminded us of anything, I pray it has reminded us of this — laws are just words on paper. They mean nothing without public servants dedicated to the rule of law who are held accountable by a public that believes oaths matter more than party tribalism or the cheap thrill of scoring political points. We, the people, must demand more of our politicians and ourselves.
Oaths matter. Character matters. Truth matters.
Tf we do not renew commitment to our principles, this experiment about us, this shining beacon on a hill, will not endure.
