In a highly-anticipated ruling, Texas Senators exonerated Attorney General Ken Paxton on all 16 articles of impeachment presented against him.
The decision follows a period of intensifying political discord within the Republican Party, which included an impeachment attempt allegedly instigated by a faction of Texas Republicans in Name Only, including associates of the Bush and Rove families.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has been acquitted of all 16 impeachment charges.
This verdict restores him as the state’s Attorney General and he will continue to work towards preventing President Biden’s open border agenda.
The Bush cartel suffered a significant loss today, with the People emerging victorious and Texas solidifying its position as staunch supporters of President Trump’s Make America Great Again platform.
DC Draino called out two Republican Senators, Robert Nichols of District 3 and Kelly Hancock of District 9, who voted for Paxton’s impeachment and encouraged voters to consider primary challenges.

Attorney General Ken Paxton expressed his gratitude to his supporters, legal team, and family in a heartfelt statement. He further announced that he will be appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show next week to discuss the matter.
Read the statement below:
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.
