Paxton Condemns Subpoena as 'Shameless Stunt' After Judge Dismisses It


McKinney — Attorney General Paxton released the following statement after the the dismissal of the subpoena against him in Federal Court: 

“This made-up controversy around serving me a subpoena is nothing more than a shameless stunt from my political opponents—a stunt that a federal judge dismissed today by quashing the subpoena. Here are the facts: a strange man came onto my property at home, yelled unintelligibly, and charged toward me. I perceived this person to be a threat because he was neither honest nor upfront about his intentions.

In light of the constant threats against me, for which dangerous individuals are currently incarcerated, I take a number of common sense precautions for me and my family’s safety when I’m at home. Texans do the same to protect themselves from threats, and many also exercise their Second Amendment rights to protect themselves and their families.

Given that this suspicious and erratic man charged me on my private property, he is lucky this situation did not escalate further or necessitate force. As leaders across America, from elected officials to Supreme Court Justices, face unprecedented threats of politically motivated violence, I believe this type of behavior utilized by radical activists is thoroughly disgusting and should be met with swift condemnation—not championed in the media.”

"Attorney general feared for his life because of someone with a piece of paper said his name"

He's a republican judge (appointed by Rick Perry), so of course he dismissed it, unlike democrats, republicans never hold their own people accountable, for anything.

Back to the subject at hand. The reason the subpoena was dismissed is because it sought a preemptive judgement against Paxton for something that hasn’t even happened yet…in other words it was bullshit ;)


Not over. Demo libs can be awful nasty when it comes to protecting their perceived “right” to kill their unborn child ;)
