Republican Texas Rep. Pat Fallon said Wednesday that several congressmen stayed behind to defend the House chamber as rioters descended on the U.S. Capitol.
Fallon described watching “courage personified” when police entered the House chamber on Wednesday and alerted lawmakers that the Capitol had been breached.
Fallon said that he, Texas Reps. Tony Gonzales, Ronny Jackson and Troy Nehls, Oklahoma Rep. Markwayne Mullin, and Colorado Rep. Ken Buck stood their ground as rioters reached the doors of the House chamber.
“We augmented the Police and stood our ground,” Fallon wrote in a Facebook post.
“We will never be intimated by any mob, regardless of their motivations.”
