Adam Kinzinger has reportedly found a new job as a television TV analyst after finishing his career as one of the most ardent anti-Trump members on Capitol Hill.
Kinzinger, who resigned from Congress last week after deciding not to run for reelection in the 2022 midterm elections, joined CNN as a senior political contributor on Wednesday.
“Kinzinger joins CNN with extensive experience in GOP politics, having recently retired from the U.S. House of Representatives after serving six terms representing Illinois’ Sixteenth Congressional District.

Kinzinger made his CNN debut as a guest on “Erin Burnett Outfront.”
Kinzinger, a member of the House Jan. 6 Committee, has been a regular guest on CNN over the last two years, where he has been asked on-air to criticize former President Trump and the majority of Republicans.
