Sparse Crowd Gathers for Paxton Rally at Capitol

Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a call to his supporters to gather at the Capitol on Saturday to express their opposition to his impeachment, as the House discussed the proceedings. Paxton’s supporters showed up in small groups, with some supporters believing the allegations against him to be false. They felt that it would be a shame if he were impeached, as he had been re-elected twice since the allegations had been made in 2015.

However, a group of people opposing Paxton’s continued tenure as Attorney General also showed up at the Capitol, citing concerns over the allegations. They believed that there was too much evidence to ignore, and that Paxton’s position as Attorney General was untenable. A brief exchange took place between the two sides, with Republicans being accused of politically motivated actions.

Senator Ted Cruz voiced his support for Paxton, stating that he had been the strongest conservative AG in the country for the past nine years. He also accused the special interests and the ‘swamp in Austin’ of trying to oust Paxton. Despite political support, the allegations against Paxton continued to cast a shadow over his reputation.

Former President Donald Trump was vocal in his support of Paxton, arguing that the proceedings were unfair and that the voters had already affirmed their support for him in the past. Trump’s comments were seen as an attempt to garner support from his loyal voter base, which Paxton was seen to be a part of.

In the end, the proceedings unfolded peacefully without any major incidents. However, it was clear that the controversy surrounding Paxton’s tenure would continue to persist. With allegations of legal misconduct and accusations of political interference, his continued presence as Attorney General was contentious and controversial. The ultimate outcome of the impeachment proceedings was uncertain, and the citizens of Texas continued to watch and wait to see how events would unfold.
