I think we do have standing,” he said. “Our founders and all of their wisdom … they didn’t want people fighting each other in the streets or shooting each other. And they didn’t want states going up against each other with arms. They set out a place for us to go address disputes civilly – which is the court system.”

Under questioning from State Sen. Royce West, D-Dallas, Paxton said his suit was never about finding election fraud. Instead, he said he was concerned Texas voters were being disenfranchised because other states did not follow federal rules for conducting elections.

(Which is true)

AG Ken Paxton defends his failed lawsuit seeking to overturn Biden’s election

February 10, 2021


By Jeremy Wallace, Austin Bureau

The U.S. Supreme Court was wrong when it refused to allow Texas to sue other states relating to the Nov. 3 that resulted in Joe Biden being elected president, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said on Wednesday.

Nearly all of the more than 100 GOP lawmakers in the Texas Legislature did not respond when asked by The Associated Press if they had confidence in Attorney General Ken Paxton, who for months has been beset by an FBI investigation over bribery and abuse-of-office accusations.

(Was this investigation retribution – due to his lawsuit before the Supreme Court?)


FILE – This Jan. 6, 2021, file photo, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton speaks in Washington, at a rally in support of President Donald Trump. Nearly all of the more than 100 GOP lawmakers in the Texas Legislature did not respond when asked by The Associated Press if they had confidence in Attorney General Ken Paxton, who for months has been beset by an FBI investigation over bribery and abuse-of-office accusations.

Paxton, defending the lawsuit before the Texas Senate, said the U.S. Supreme Court Justices were wrong when they refused to hear his case arguing that other states had violated the Constitution because of the way they conducted their elections. The Supreme Court ruled in early December that Texas did not have the standing to challenge the election results in four battleground states — a conclusion that legal experts across the country had foreseen.

“Our only place to be heard was in the U.S. Supreme Court,” Paxton told the Senate Finance Committee as he defended his proposed budget for the next two years. “I do not think that their jurisprudence is right that they can just have this discretion to not hear your case.”

Under questioning from State Sen. Royce West, D-Dallas, Paxton said his suit was never about finding election fraud. Instead, he said he was concerned Texas voters were being disenfranchised because other states did not follow federal rules for conducting elections.

“We have no way to go back and even verify whether these elections were credible and whether they were done in a way that wasn’t fraudulent,” Paxton said.

It was President Donald Trump’s lawyers who drafted the lawsuit, the New York Times reported, and Trump’s team turned to Paxton only after Louisiana Attorney General Jeffrey M. Landry, a Republican, declined to take the case. The Times also reported that members of Paxton’s staff argued against filing the suit, and Paxton’s top litigator, Kyle Hawkins, refused to put his name on it.

Hawkins has since resigned.

Paxton defended filing the suit at Wednesday’s state Senate hearing, with a top aide saying the attorney general’s office incurred only $12,000 in printing costs because two outside attorneys worked on the case for free. However, when West questioned how much time Paxton and other top leaders spent on the case as representatives of Texas, Paxton said they didn’t track that, as they do with most other cases.

Paxton spoke philosophically about why the federal court system exists in the first place.

“I think we do have standing,” he said. “Our founders and all of their wisdom … they didn’t want people fighting each other in the streets or shooting each other. And they didn’t want states going up against each other with arms. They set out a place for us to go address disputes civilly – which is the court system.”

That triggered State Sen. John Whitmire, D-Houston, to question Paxton as to why he was at the rally at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 speaking at a rally of President Donald Trump supporters hours before hundreds of people in the crowd Congress, resulting in five deaths, including that of a Capitol Police officer.

“I’m a believer in free speech rights, and the First Amendment,” Paxton said.

Later he said after he gave his speech to the Trump supporters, he and his wife State Sen. Angela Paxton left “and went and had lunch, and people did what they did.”

Paxton is testifying before the Legislature today about his proposed budget for the next two years. The initial draft of the state budget would cut $89 million from his requested and remove 154 positions.
