Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) announced Tuesday he will vote to impeach President Trump over his role in inciting last week’s violent mob at the Capitol.

Kinzinger is the third GOP lawmaker to say he will join Democrats in backing a single article of impeachment accusing the president of “willfully inciting violence against the Government of the United States” over Wednesday’s riot, which left at least five people dead.

Kinzinger in a statement said Trump “encouraged an angry mob to storm the United States Capitol to stop the counting of electoral votes,” noting that lawmakers were gathered to certify the presidential election results.
