Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) was first sworn in to the U.S. House of Representatives on Jan. 3, 2021, representing Texas’ 13th Congressional District. He ran for his second term in 2022 with Trump’s endorsement and won in his solidly Republican district. A medical doctor, he has called the Omicron variant of Covid the “Midterm Election Variant” that will enable Democrats to cheat via mail-in ballots during the midterm elections.
Before being elected to Congress, Jackson was a physician who served as the White House doctor during both the Obama and Trump administrations. He earned the rank of rear admiral before retiring from the U.S. Navy in 2019. A Department of Defense investigation into Jackson found that he had made sexual remarks to subordinates, dispensed drugs inappropriately, and abused alcohol.
Leading up to the 2020 presidential election, Jackson made a public warning to voters, saying: “I’ve watched Joe Biden on the campaign trail and I am concerned and convinced that he does not have the mental capacity, the cognitive ability, to serve as our commander-in-chief and our head of state.” After the election, he showed his ongoing loyalty to Trump by voting against certifying Biden’s Electoral College win, impeaching Trump for inciting the violence at the Capitol, and establishing a special House committee to investigate the insurrection, among other measures.
January 6, 2021
- Just hours after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, Jackson joined 146 other congressional Republicans in refusing to certify Biden’s win of the 2020 presidential election.
- Jackson voted against impeaching Trump for his role in inciting the mob that attacked the Capitol and disrupted congressional certification of the presidential election.
- Jackson voted against establishing a House committee to investigate the attack on Congress and the Capitol.
The Big Lie
- Jackson is a member of the “sedition caucus” that repeatedly used terms related to the Stop the Steal conspiracy on Facebook between election day 2020 and the Jan. 6 insurrection. He pushed the “stolen election” narrative at least 30 times during this period, according to reporting from Media Matters.
- On Dec. 28, 2020, Jackson posted a plan on Twitter to “take our country back.” The third step in the process was “throw out the fraudulent vote” on Jan. 6.
- On Jan. 6, Jackson tweeted: “We’re out here FIGHTING FOR TRUMP and for our election integrity! American Patriots have your BACK Mr. President! We will FIGHT for YOU and we will fight for OUR country!” #KAG
