Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), one of two Republicans on the Jan. 6 committee, on Tuesday released a compilation of threatening voicemails received by his D.C. office. 

The voicemails contain graphic descriptions threatening violence and death towards Kinzinger and his family. Voicemails left to lawmakers are traditionally reviewed by interns and younger staffers in Congress. 

Here’s a sampling of the messages people left Kinzinger:

“Hey you little cocksucker. Going to come protest in front of your house this weekend. We know where your family is and we’re going to get you you little cocksucker. Gonna get your wife, gonna get your kids you little cocksucking bastard.”

“I hope somebody like him kills your nasty mom, and your nasty wife. It’s not a threat, it’s a hope.”  

“You’re gonna swing for fucking treason you communist fuck.”

“I hope you get terminal cancer, you motherfucking pig. Fuck you.”

Kinzinger previously shared threats made against him and his family and warned about the possibility of violence against lawmakers.

The Jan. 6 committee has moved to increase security for lawmakers, possibly through security details. Witnesses to the committee have also described intimidation efforts by Trump loyalists attempting to manipulate their testimony. Some witnesses, including documentary filmmaker Alex Holder have gone as far as hiring security as a preemptive safety measure.
