Trump endorses Texas rep who said he ‘very well may have’ committed impeachable offenses

Former President Trump on Thursday endorsed Texas Rep. Michael McCaul (R), who previously said Trump “very well may have” committed impeachable offenses on and before Jan. 6. 

Congressman Michael McCaul is doing an incredible job for the great State of Texas. He works hard to protect our Borders, defend our now under siege Second Amendment, and support our brave Military and Vets,” Trump said in his statement.

“He will fight for our America First agenda, stand up to China, and hold Joe Biden accountable for his incompetent failure in Afghanistan. Michael McCaul has my Complete and Total Endorsement!” he added.

McCaul has previously condemned Trump’s rhetoric and did not go along with the former president’s false election fraud claims, voting to certify electors from Arizona and Pennsylvania.

Back in January, McCaul did vote against impeaching Trump, saying he did so because the process was hurried and he didn’t want “rushed justice.”

“There very well may have been impeachable offenses committed leading up to, and on, that tragic day,” McCaul said, referring to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

“I strongly condemn the president’s rhetoric and his behavior,” McCaul said. “I understand, having witnessed these events first-hand, that emotions are high; but this decision must be based on facts and evidence.”

Along with McCaul, Trump announced endorsements on Thursday for two other Texas representatives campaigning for reelection, Reps. Pat Fallon (R) and John Carter (R).
