Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan issued a stern warning to state senators who voted against the impeachment of Attorney General Ken Paxton.

In a historic decision, Texas senators acquitted Attorney General Ken Paxton on the 16 articles of impeachment brought against him. The acquittal comes after a contentious period of political infighting within the Republican Party, which involved a “mock impeachment” orchestrated by a faction of Texas RINOs, including allies of the Bush and Rove families.

After the false indictment, Attorney General Ken Paxton grateful his supporters and legal team, saying: “Today, the truth has prevailed. The truth could not be buried by corrupt politicians or their powerful benefactors. I have said many times: Seek the truth! And this is what it was achieved.”

Paxton also thanked his wife Angela, describing her as “a courageous woman of deep faith, unquestionable integrity and the light of our entire family.”

He criticized the impeachment process, stating, “The impeachment sham coordinated by the Biden Administration with liberal Speaker of the House Dade Phelan and his kangaroo court has cost taxpayers millions of dollars, disrupted the work of attorney general’s office and has left a dark and permanent stain on the Texas house.”

Texas state representative Brian Harrison echoed Ken Paxton’s sentiments and called for House Speaker Dade Phelan to “resign immediately.”

In a scathing statement, MP Harrison he wrote, “Speaker Phelan must resign now to boost this Democratic effort while killing Republican priorities.” He continued, “I applaud the Texas Senate for conducting a fair and transparent trial and for reaching a verdict that was obviously correct given the shocking lack of evidence.”

Harrison accused the Texas House leadership of misleading and pressuring Republicans to join a Democratic-led effort to impeach Paxton, tarnishing the reputation of the entire Texas House. He also called for an investigation by the State Auditor’s Office to determine how much taxpayer money was wasted in the impeachment process.

Harrison continued: “Instead of securing the border, passing school choice, banning COVID mandates, fixing our grid and energy market, controlling emergency executive powers, cutting spending, ending taxes on property, deregulating our economy, or preventing communist governments from buying Texas land, the Speaker of the House made it a priority to remove a recently re-elected attorney general who has proven himself up to the most important task of our time: to fight the out-of-control federal government, which seeks to destroy our rights, our liberties, our liberties, our state sovereignty and the Constitution.”

On Saturday, “liberal” Dade Phelan blasted the Senate and Lt. Gov. Patrick for their handling of the impeachment trial, accusing them of orchestrating the outcome and “misleading the justice people of Texas.”

Phelan also threatened that this is not the end for Ken Paxton, as he is “subject to multiple other lawsuits, accusations and investigations.”

Read his full statement below:

“Over the past two weeks, the Texas House Board of Managers provided the Texas Senate and the people of Texas with ample evidence of Ken Paxton’s corruption, deceit, and self-dealing. It is extremely unfortunate that after to hear and evaluate this evidence, the Texas Senate chose not to impeach him.Furthermore, I find it deeply troubling that after weeks of claiming he would preside over this trial in an impartial and honest manner, Lt. Gov. Patrick concluded by confessing his bias and putting his contempt for the House of the People on full display. To be clear, Patrick attacked the House to defend himself against corruption. His tirade does not respect the constitutional impeachment process that we the founders of this great state offered.The inescapable conclusion is that today’s result appears to have been orchestrated from the beginning, deceiving the people of Texas justice.

“This prosecution was launched because Ken Paxton sought millions of taxpayer dollars to settle a lawsuit brought by conservative, senior staffers that Paxton himself recruited into his office. These brave people were willing to sacrifice their reputation and career to fight the misconduct they witnessed, which included abuse of power, corruption, allegations of bribery, and allowing Nate Paul to serve as the de facto Attorney General of Texas.

“Subsequent investigation by the House General Investigative Committee into the merits of the settlement produced more than sufficient evidence to warrant impeachment.

The impeachment process does not exist to punish the offender, but to determine whether they have abused their power so egregiously that they are unfit for office and their removal is in the best interest of the state. It is unfortunate that the outcome of this process ultimately relinquished control of the state’s top law enforcement agency to an individual who, I believe, clearly abused his power, compromised his agency and its employees and moved mountains for protection and benefit.

“The Senate’s refusal to remove Ken Paxton from office, however, is not the end of this matter. Ken Paxton is the subject of many other lawsuits, accusations and investigations.

If new facts continue to emerge, those who allowed him to remain in office will have a lot to answer for.

“I offer my deepest thanks to the House Board of Directors and their legal team for their diligent work on this matter, and to each of the 121 members of the House who acted courageously in the best interests of this state by voting to advance the articles of impeachment. . It was a difficult vote to make, but not a difficult decision. And unlike others, they chose principle over politics. I stand with them in full support of their decision and recognize the sacrifices they made in the name of doing what is right. Because of them, Texans had the ability to hear the evidence in a public trial, as the founders of this great state intended.”
