Former Trump adviser Jason Miller said anti-Trump Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) only started to oppose the 45th president after his wife wasn’t hired at the White House. During an interview on Sunday, Miller said Kinzinger tried to get his wife a job in the communications department of the Trump White House.
Miller went on to say Kinzinger became more antagonistic after his wife wasn’t picked for the job. He added he has seen evidence of the lawmaker’s failed effort to place his wife in the White House.
“I’ve even seen the text messages where he was trying to get his wife hired in the White House. I’m not sure why the folks from the White House haven’t been a little more direct with that, but it’s absolutely the case,” he explained. “He wanted to get his wife a job and then when she didn’t, he started becoming a little more hostile.”
Kinzinger is notably one of two Republicans to sit on the January 6 Commission, which has been heavily criticized by GOP lawmakers as being partisan.
