Brandon Waltens: Evidence against Texas AG Ken Paxton submitted during State Senate impeachment hearing was WEAK
By Kevin Hughes // Sep 20, 2023

The evidence presented during the Texas Senate's impeachment hearing against Texas Attorney General (AG) Ken Paxton was weak, according to journalist Brandon Waltens.

He shared this remark with conservative host Glenn Beck during a recent episode of the latter's "The Glenn Beck Program." According to Waltens, there has been a lot of talk from those pushing the Paxton impeachment about the "stunning" testimony and evidence they have against the Lone Star State's top attorney.

However, the managing editor for Texas Scorecard disclosed that these claims have fallen flat. Beck agreed with his guest, pointing out that the evidence was "a little beyond weak" and there was no proof of any crime. Nevertheless, the conservative radio host said Paxton's impeachment shows that something is very wrong in Texas – and Texans better pay attention to it.

According to Waltens, the Texas House of Representatives does the impeachment. It then goes over to the Texas Senate to determine whether or not a conviction is made to remove someone from office. In Paxton's case, state senators voted to acquit the AG on all charges on Sept. 16.

The journalist also recounted the circumstances that led to the impeachment against Paxton. Three years ago, a group of employees at the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) accused him of wrongdoing and abuse of power after he helped a friend. Paxton himself advocated for the OAG to open an investigation into Nate Paul, his friend and a major donor to his campaign.

Paul had been allegedly mistreated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) during a raid. However, former OAG Director of Law Enforcement David Maxwell – who testified against Paxton in the impeachment trial – refused to open a formal investigation into the alleged FBI and DPS misconduct.

Paxton then hired outside counsel to help explore and adjudicate his friend's claims, leading the OAG employees to report him to the FBI. This set the impeachment charges against Paxton into motion.

Beck: GOP's Bush wing behind Paxton impeachment

Meanwhile, Beck said he believes the Bush wing of the Texas Republican Party is behind Paxton's impeachment. He cited several whistleblowers against the AG having ties with George P. Bush (GPB), former commissioner of the Texas General Land Office. GPB, the son of 2016 GOP presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, unsuccessfully challenged Paxton for AG during the November 2022 elections.

Waltens agreed with Beck's observations. According to him, there had been a couple of moments during the testimony where the Bush family had been mentioned. Given this, the Texas Scorecard managing editor said the political family was definitely involved.

The host of "The Glenn Beck Program" said while Paxton himself wasn't good at playing the game and befriending the right people, the people against him shouldn't bend the rules just to get him out.

"If he's a criminal, if he did something criminal, then I am for his impeachment. But if this is just because he hasn't made the right friends or a Bush wants him out, or whatever it is," Beck said. "The people involved in this, because it's been so shady the way they did this, I think they should be impeached."

Waltens seconded Beck. "It's one thing when Americans see the Democrats going after former President Donald Trump using the criminal justice system. However, it's another thing when Democrats go after Paxton and establishment Republicans in Texas simply go along," Waltens said.
