Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on Saturday in defense of Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) after establishment Republicans voted to impeach him this week.
“The RINO Speaker of the House of Texas, Dade Phelan, who is barely a Republican at all and failed the test on voter integrity, wants to impeach one of the most hard working and effective Attorney Generals in the United States, Ken Paxton, who just won re-election with a large number of American Patriots strongly voting for him. You would think that any issue would have been fully adjudicated by the voters of Texas, especially when that vote was so conclusive,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

“I love Texas, won it twice in landslides, and watched as many other friends, including Ken Paxton, came along with me,” he continued. “Hopefully Republicans in the Texas House will agree that this is a very unfair process that should not be allowed to happen or proceed—I will fight you if it does.”
“It is the Radical Left Democrats, RINOS, and Criminals that never stop. ELECTION INTERFERENCE! Free Ken Paxton, let them wait for the next election!” he added.
Paxton decried the Uniparty’s “illegal impeachment” on Saturday and called on protesters to demonstrate in front of the Texas Capitol building to make their voices heard.
“I think they decided they thought I was going to lose my election to Bush, and they became very disturbed when I won,” Paxton said on Newsmax. “And they concocted this plan, I think months and months ago, maybe right after my reelection, thinking that the voters just were not smart enough to figure this out. They’re going to fix it.”
The Texas House of Representatives is currently holding a vote on Paxton’s impeachment as of this writing.
