'Buckle Up': Ken Paxton Sets His Sights On The Biden Administration Following Acquittal By Texas Senate

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton did a victory lap after his acquittal by the Texas Senate, releasing a letter on Saturday warning the Biden administration to “buckle up” as Texas begins to work to challenge the policies pushed by them. 

As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, Paxton was acquitted of all the charges that were brought against him after nine days of deliberations. The senators talked overnight following the closing arguments by both sides before coming to their decision Saturday morning. 

Despite the initial 121-23 vote by the Texas House of Representatives to impeach Paxton, the decision was seen as wildly unpopular by Republicans. Immediately, people such as Donald Trump himself jumped to the defense of Paxton, slamming Texas House Republicans as being RINOs (Republican in name only), per the DC Enquirer

Despite this, Paxton prevailed, and upon clearing the charges, the Texas AG was quick to get back to work. He immediately set his sights on the Biden administration, releasing a statement on X/Twitter thanking all of those who supported him through the “kangaroo court” that was headed by House Speaker Dade Phelan. He stated that he will now return to “defend[ing] our constitutional rights” after being interrupted by the Texas House.

“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,” the statement read.

He signed off by reminding people that he would be speaking with popular conservative reporter Tucker Carlson, something he announced on Wednesday, before going “back to work!”

Paxton also shared numerous tweets on his account of those who congratulated him for clearing the impeachment charges. He first shared an image of his wife, State Senator Angela Paxton (R), writing, “I love this woman. Isn’t she beautiful?”

He also reposted a tweet from his wife that read, “‘Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.’ James 1:2-4.”

Other shared posts by Paxton include from conservative personality DC Draino, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and the Texas GOP, among others. The acquittal of Paxton has been a massive success for conservatives, allowing a firebrand like the Texas attorney general to return to standing up against the hyper-liberal agenda of the left and ensuring sanity in the state of Texas.
