On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) explains why he is voting the impeachment of President Trump and what it was like on the floor of the Capitol on January 6th.
"I'm voting against impeachment. This is solely a political move by Nancy Pelosi and right now we don't need that. Right now the country is hurting, people are divided as much as ever. We need to heal and come together, not further divide us. And that's what this vote today is about."
"It kind of reminds me of January 6th, where some of the members ran to the door. We got to run to the fire. We can't run away from it. We got to be firm and who we are and what we stand for. And we got to push back against some of these, no doubt, socialist agenda items that are on the rise, like Green New Deal, like Medicare For All, like open borders. Republicans have to circle the wagons. We have our differences and that's OK, but we got to circle the wagons and we got to dig in. Otherwise, the nation is going to really be in some trouble."
"I was in the chamber. And when when the the protesters kind of got to the doors, all the members were running as far as can be. And Markwayne Mullin, myself, Ronny Jackson and a few others kind of went to the door to keep things at bay. It was a fight or flight moment. I did twenty years in the military, served in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was a fight or flight moment that should have never taken place. People are upset. That is not going away. We have to address these issues that got people upset. We got to calm the waters and steady things. And impeachment isn't going to do that."
