Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) went on the record opposing the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Tuesday.

Crenshaw does think Trump bears some responsibility for the actions of some who were present at a rally in Washington on January 6, who forced their way into the Capitol building and caused damage and fought with police there.
