The congressman representing much of North Texas in Washington, D.C., was strongly opposed to President Donald Trump being impeached for a second time.
“This snap impeachment is a sham,” said Rep. Pat Fallon, R-Sherman, who spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives before the Jan. 13 vote.
Fallon criticized the fact that the impeachment process did not go through the House Judiciary Committee and was based on what he believed were false allegations connecting the president to a violent confrontation on Jan. 6 by protesters on Capitol Hill.
“This is just political grandstanding at its worst,” Fallon said of the impeachment process. “Let's end this obsession and charade and let’s get to work.”
Fallon’s vote came just a few days after he took office. Fallon was elected in November to House District 4 in Texas, which includes both Hunt and Rockwall counties.
Fallon later posted a photo showing him voting against impeachment.
