Texas' Ken Paxton--ONLY state atty general in US who didn't sign letters condemning Capitol attack.


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is the only state attorney general in the United States who did not sign on to one of two letters sent this week condemning the violent insurrection of the U.S. Capitol mounted last week by supporters of President Donald Trump.

Paxton has individually condemned the violence on television and social media while falsely claiming the pro-Trump mob that invaded the Capitol was infiltrated by liberal antifa activists. There has been no evidence that antifa activists participated in the Jan. 6 attack that left five people dead and was intended to disrupt the certification of the presidential election results.

Attorneys general from 46 states in addition to those representing Washington D.C. and three U.S. territories signed a letter Tuesday sent to Acting U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen condemning the attack. Only Paxton and the Republican attorneys general from Louisiana, Indiana and Montana did not sign the letter.

"The events of January 6 represent a direct, physical challenge to the rule of law and our democratic republic itself," the attorneys general wrote in the letter, sent by the National Association of Attorneys General. "As Americans, and those charged with enforcing the law, we must come together to condemn lawless violence, making clear that such actions will not be allowed to go unchecked."

By Wednesday, those three holdouts sent Rosen their own letter, which Paxton also did not sign.


Gee, not surprised. The guy comes off as a conspiracy lunatic.

And I can't wait to see you finally go down, as well as the whistleblowers who recorded your corruption.
