“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Not Guilty on All Counts”

By Donna Garner

COMMENTS FROM DONNA GARNER: I know that the Texas Tribune and the other leftist media are completely depressed today as they were forced to report, “only two of 19 Republican Senators, Bob Nichols of Jacksonville and Kelly Hancock of North Richland Hills, voted in favor of convicting for any article” of impeachment brought against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.  

Because of the not-guilty verdicts on all of the 16 articles of impeachment, Texas Attorney General Paxton is immediately restored to office which cancels the automatic suspension which occurred in May.

9.16.23 -- “Statement from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Upon His Not-Guilty Verdicts”

Today, the truth prevailed. The truth could not be buried by mudslinging politicians or their powerful benefactors.  I’ve said many times: Seek the truth!  And that is what was accomplished.

I thank the 4.2 million Texans who voted for me last year. I will always be grateful for your support, and I will continue to honor your vote by defending the rule of law and our constitutional rights. I’m also grateful for the state senators who followed the law and refused to overturn an election. I also thank my legal team for exposing the absurdity of these false allegations.

Most importantly, I want to thank my amazing wife Angela, who I love dearly. She is a brave woman of deep faith, unquestionable integrity, and the light of our entire family.

The sham impeachment coordinated by the Biden Administration with liberal House Speaker Dade Phelan and his kangaroo court has cost taxpayers millions of dollars, disrupted the work of the Office of Attorney General and left a dark and permanent stain on the Texas House. 

The weaponization of the impeachment process to settle political differences is not only wrong, it is immoral and corrupt.

Now that this shameful process is over, my work to defend our constitutional rights will resume.

Thank you to everyone who has stood with us during this time.

Finally, I can promise the Biden Administration the following: buckle up because your lawless policies will not go unchallenged. We will not allow you to shred the constitution and infringe on the rights of Texans. You will be held accountable.

I will next address the nation and Texas on Tucker Carlson next week. Now it is back to work!



9.16.23 – “Texas AG Ken Paxton Acquitted on All 16 Articles of Impeachment” – by Jana J. Pruet – Epoch Times -- https://www.theepochtimes.com/us/texas-ag-ken-paxton-acquitted-on-all-16-articles-of-impeachment-5491525?utm_source=News&src_src=News&utm_campaign=rtbreaking-2023-09-16-1&src_cmp=rtbreaking-2023-09-16-1&utm_medium=email&est=zROfijW%2F5PaIqAbdXWO1iADQDJuaIurTVjHowt7JtjB%2B9qNHESwNSnrQQaOGkAozseA%3D

Following eight days of testimony from both sides, 30 state senators voted on Saturday to acquit or remove from office Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on 16 articles of impeachment.

The state Senate also voted to dismiss the four articles of impeachment that were held in abeyance with a 19–11 vote.

There are 31 state senators in Texas; however, only 30 senators—18 Republicans and 12 Democrats—could vote on the impeachment articles because Sen. Angela Paxton, the wife of Mr. Paxton, is ineligible to vote.

Ms. Paxton was required to attend her husband's trial but was barred from participating in deliberation and voting, according to the trial rules.

…The House managers needed 21 votes on any one article to convict Mr. Paxton and remove him from office.

Most of the votes went along party lines with two Republicans, Sens. Robert Nichols and Kelly Hancock, joining the Democrats to vote against Mr. Paxton.

"This is 16 trials in one," said Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Friday morning. "This is not a normal trial."

…Mr. Paxton attended closing arguments. He had not attended the trial since the first day when he was required to enter his pleas on each of the 16 articles of impeachment he was facing in the trial.

"I'm heading to Maine to sit down with @TuckerCarlson and discuss the last two weeks in Texas politics. It should be interesting!" Mr. Paxton wrote on X earlier this week.

The attorney general pleaded not guilty to all of the articles. It was not mandatory for him to attend the trial or take the stand on his own behalf.

The trial wrapped up Friday morning with closing arguments from House manager Andrew Murr, followed by defense lawyers Tony Buzbee and Dan Cogdell and a rebuttal by Mr. Murr and Rep. Jeff Leach.

Mr. Buzbee said the House had not proved their case against his client. He cited the impeachment as a plot against Mr. Paxton, orchestrated by the Austin establishment after he beat George P. Bush in the 2022 Republican primary.

"This is a political trial," Mr. Buzbee said. "I would suggest to you it's a political witch hunt."

"The Bush-era in Texas ends today," he continued.

Mr. Buzbee went through the litany of accusations, which he said the defense had proved were false.

"There is shame here, and the shame sits right there," Mr. Buzbee said, pointing at the prosecutors. "That they would bring this case, in this chamber, with no evidence."
