Members of Congress investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol believe that Rick Perry, former Texas governor and U.S. energy secretary, authored a text message encouraging the Trump administration to direct three GOP-led state legislatures to ignore 2020 election results and deliver their state’s electoral votes to Donald Trump, according to a report from CNN, which cited three sources familiar with the investigation but did not name them.

Rick Perry net worth: Rick Perry is an American politician who has a net worth of $3 million. Perry is probably most notable for being the Governor of the state of Texas and a Republican Presidential primary candidate. Rick has accumulated his net worth largely through his family’s fortune, his numerous published books, and his successful career in politics.
Rick Perry, the former Texas governor who became Donald Trump’s energy secretary, has said that Texans would willingly endure longer periods of sub-freezing temperatures if it stymied Democrats’ energy policy and efforts to combat the climate crisis.
“Texans would be without electricity for longer than three days to keep the federal government out of their business,” Perry was quoted saying in a blogpost published Wednesday on the website of the Republican congressman Kevin McCarthy.
Perry’s first dance this season, with partner Emma Slater, was a Texas-themed cha-cha set to the song “God Blessed Texas.” And while the dance had plenty of camp — the routine started with Perry and Slater dancing up to a corn dog stand — the judges didn’t seem impressed.
All four judges awarded Perry and Slater a five out of 10 for a total score of 20 — the lowest of the night.
After Perry and Slater finished their dance, show host Tom Bergeron asked the former two-time presidential candidate how the performance compared with a presidential debate.
“Presidential debate ain’t even in the class,” Perry said. “Oh, man, come on, this is crazy good. This is as good as it gets.”
