BREAKING: Ken Paxton’s Heartfelt Rebuttal to ‘Illegal’ Impeachment

'I am beyond grateful to have the support of millions of Texans who recognize that what we just witnessed is illegal, unethical, and profoundly unjust...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, has reacted to the impeachment proceedings successfully brought against him. In a heartfelt response, Paxton displayed a defiant tone, dismissing the charges as politically motivated and “illegal.” 

In a long statement shared via Twitter, Paxton said, “The ugly spectacle in the Texas House today confirmed the outrageous impeachment plot against me was never meant to be fair or just. It was a politically motivated sham from the beginning.” 

Paxton has repeatedly rejected any notion of any wrongdoing and said in an interview his office had evidence to refute claims led by those who he dubbed “liberal Republicans.” “My office made every effort to present evidence, testimony, and irrefutable facts that would have disproven the countless false statements and outright lies advanced by Speaker Dade Phelan and the Murr-Johnson panel he appointed.” 

In a Friday interview with U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Paxton said Phelan was plotting a witch hunt because of the corruption schemes Paxton had previously uncovered. Gaetz, who was guest hosting the Greg Kelly Reports show on Newsmax, asked Paxton whether he was confident the Texas Senate would clear him from a trial. Paxton said he had confidence in the Senate but called out the Texas House for withholding crucial information from his office. 

Former President Donald Trump weighed in on the impeachment, slamming Phelan as a “RINO” (Republican in Name Only) and questioning his commitment to the Republican Party. Trump, as reported by Headline USA on Saturday, also torched Phelan for hindering election integrity efforts in Texas. 

Paxton accused the speaker of the Texas House of aligning with the Biden administration and radical democrats. “Phelan’s coalition of Democrats and liberal Republicans is now in lockstep with the Biden administration, the abortion industry, anti-gun zealots, and woke corporations to sabotage my work as Attorney General, including our ongoing litigation to stop illegal immigration, uphold the rule of law, and protect the constitutional rights of every Texan.” 

The impeachment proceedings were introduced over a dispute on whether the state legislature should cover the cost of a legal settlement by the Attorney General’s Office.

During the hearings, Paxton called several House Republicans and warned them of the political consequences if they voted to impeach him. 

In concluding remarks, the now-impeached attorney general thanked Texan voters for supporting him. “I am beyond grateful to have the support of millions of Texans who recognize that what we just witnessed is illegal, unethical, and profoundly unjust,” Paxton concluded. “I look forward to a quick resolution in the Texas Senate, where I have full confidence the process will be fair and just.”
