Ken Paxton Says That ‘Those Who Stormed The Capitol Yesterday Were Not Trump Supporters. They Have Been Confirmed To Be Antifa’


Not long after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton addressed a large “Save America” rally of Trump loyalists outside the White House on Wednesday, they marched on the Capitol and breached the building as Congress sought to ratify President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory.

But Paxton had his own ideas about the mob carrying pro-Trump flags and signs.

On Thursday morning, he took to Facebook to advance a conspiracy theory that the people who overtook the Capitol were not Trump supporters, but members of antifa.

“Those who stormed the capitol yesterday were not Trump supporters. They have been confirmed to be Antifa,” Paxton wrote. “Violence is not the answer.”

Paxton’s post cited two sources: a screenshot of a tweet by right-wing journalist Paul Sperry and a screenshot of a Washington Times article with the headline, “Facial recognition firm claims antifa infiltrated Trump protestors who stormed capitol.”

Politifact rated Paxton's statement as "Pants on Fire."

1. Over and over they just lie, lie, lie.

They aren't even clever about it and never use reason or logic.
Just lies.

6. I'd say that TX has a big problem w/ this guy. Despite clear evidence on TV, numerous interviews,

inside shots of the events going on, clearly identifiable, and this idiot still claims someone else did it. So a murderer can shoot someone, and the TX AG can say that someone else did it, and the murderer goes free?! SMH. This guy needs to be impeached or charged w/ the crime of being too dumb for the job at hand.

7. He already is under indictment for illegal trading in securities

and the FBI is investigating him for taking bribes. The ones that should be charged are the idiots that vote for him to be the idiot attorney general.
