'It Was My Honor': Trump Reveals How His Efforts Saved Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

On Monday, leading Republican presidential candidate and 45th President Donald Trump took to Truth Social to once again celebrate the acquittal of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton by the Texas Senate on Saturday. Trump asserted that his intervention saved Paxton from a guilty verdict.

"Yes, it is true that my intervention through TRUTH SOCIAL saved Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton from going down at the hands of Democrats and some Republicans, headed by PAUL RINO (Ryan), Karl Rove, and others, almost all of whom came back to reason when confronted with the facts," Trump wrote. "Ken has been a great A.G., and now he can go back to work for the wonderful people of Texas."

"It was my honor to have helped correct this injustice!" Trump added.
Trump congratulated Paxton and the people of Texas on Saturday, writing, "I want to thank the great Lt. Governor of Texas, Dan Patrick, who served as Judge in the Ken Paxton Trial, and the Republican State Senators, for showing great Professionalism and Fairness….Attorney General Paxton was fully acquitted on all 16 Impeachment Articles brought by the Texas Republican House. It is time that Speaker Dade Phelan resign after pushing this Disgraceful Sham!"

"Congratulations to Attorney General Ken Paxton on a great and historic Texas sized VICTORY," Trump continued. "I also want to congratulate his wonderful wife and family for having had to go through this ordeal, and WINNING!"
"Congratulations to the Great People of Texas, and the State Senate, for rejecting POLITICAL PERSECUTION, and respecting the Integrity of our Elections. We should choose our elected officials by VOTING, not by weaponizing government," the leading Republican presidential candidate explained. "That is for Banana Republics, and Third World Countries. Now Attorney General Ken Paxton can get back to work. He’s one of the BEST!"

"Thank you, President Trump. Looking forward to defending liberty for Texas," Paxton wrote in response on Twitter/X.

As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, the Texas Senate reached its verdict on the 16 articles of impeachment on Saturday afternoon. Every Democrat and two Republicans voted in favor of the impeachment articles, however, they did not reach the threshold of 21 votes needed to convict Paxton.

Various state lawmakers and conservatives across the Lone Star State are calling upon Texas Speaker of the House Dade Phelan, who pushed for the impeachment in the House earlier this year, to resign from office.

"Today the truth prevailed," Paxton wrote in a statement. "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."

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

President Trump's efforts to support Paxton likely proved influential in ensuring he remains one of the best attorney generals in the country. Paxton has promised that his return to the job will bring with it a plethora of fights with the Biden administration on behalf of the great state of Texas.
