Roger Williams

About

Roger Williams (R-Texas) has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2013, representing Texas’s 25th Congressional District. He is a member of the conservative Republican Study Committee and in 2022 ran for reelection unopposed (but with Trump’s endorsement) so will return to Congress for the 118th session. 

After the 2020 presidential election, Williams adhered to the GOP playbook by casting doubt on the legitimacy of Biden’s victory. He objected to certifying the Electoral College results and voted against both impeaching Trump for inciting the insurrection and establishing a special House committee to investigate it, among other measures.

January 6, 2021

  • Just hours after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, Williams joined 146 other congressional Republicans in refusing to certify Biden’s win of the 2020 presidential election.
  • Williams voted against impeaching Trump or holding him accountable in any way for instigating the attack on Congress and for fanning the flames against his vice president once the riot broke out.
  • Williams also voted against establishing a House committee to investigate the genesis of the assault that disrupted the certification process shortly after it began.

The Big Lie

  • On Nov. 5, 2020, Williams encouraged supporters to “call your state legislators in GA, NC, PA, and AZ and tell them they run the elections—not the radical Dems.” On the same day, he tweeted that “radical Dems tried to do away with law and order and are now trying to do away with law and order at the ballot box.”
  • On Dec. 10, 2020, Williams signed an amicus brief in a lawsuit filed by the state of Texas urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the results of the presidential election in four swing states: Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Election Audits

  • On Dec. 3, 2020, Williams endorsed partisan election audits of the 2020 election results in various states, tweeting that states “must be FULLY transparent while conducting post-election audits.”
