The man behind the SCOTUS lawsuit aimed at negating the 2020 President Election results. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. He's a fella with one Christmas wish this season, to catch enough praise and attention from Santa Trumpleskin Claus in the hopes of a festive pardon.



So what's the deal with him?


Paxton faces three counts: two for securities fraud, and another for acting as an investment advisor or representative without registering. The indictments were unsealed Monday. They allege that Paxton offered to sell two people more than $100,000 worth of stock in a McKinney technology company, but didn’t disclose that the company was compensating him. Paxton also didn’t make clear that he hadn’t personally invested in the company, the indictments allege. He received 100,000 shares, but that was in the form of compensation, according to the indictment.


Paxton is currently facing 99 years for a combination of financial crimes which would be considered first-degree felonies under law. You'd think it'd stop right there? Nope. Another controversy. In 2019, the FBI raided a mansion and offices owned by a man named Nate Paul in an investigation that was focused on securities fraud. Paul then proceeded to accuse FBI agents, federal prosecutors, and a federal judge of breaking the law, allegations that appeared to be frivolous. Texas AG Ken Paxton then quickly proceeded to jump to Nate's defense and involve himself in the matter. Nate Paul was of course a significant political donor of Kens.


On Nov. 17, the AP reported that the FBI is now investigating Paxton alongside Paul. According to the AP, the FBI believes the attorney general may have abused his office to help Paul get out of legal trouble. This probe raises the prospect of federal bribery and corruption charges against Paxton. This time around, he has no power to defund the prosecutors—though he is already using the powers of his office to undermine the FBI’s credibility.

Several weeks after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton made the unusual move of intervening in a civil lawsuit involving his friend and campaign donor Nate Paul, Paxton received a $25,000 donation from the law firm hired by Paul in the case, records show.

Involving his office in the civil case was just one of a handful of apparent interventions by Paxton on behalf of Paul that troubled the attorney general’s top aides, leading seven of them to report Paxton to law enforcement for potential corruption charges in early October, including bribery and abuse of office.


And this is where daddy Trump evidently comes into play. As his term winds down, Trump has shifted his attention toward pardoning his friends. Some of his pardons are extraordinarily broad and even seem designed to fend off future criminal charges. While a president cannot pardon someone for future conduct, he can pardon them for offenses that have already been committed but not yet charged. Theoretically, then, Trump could issue a preemptive pardon shielding Paxton from charges pertaining to his dealings with Paul. There goes the golden goose that our dear friend Mr Paxton is chasing.

Is there any sincere belief on the side of Paxton that this Lawsuit aimed at SCOTUS will go anywhere?


The Texas AG is marching out the same unproven allegations numerous courts have already found specious. His paranoia includes hidden suitcases full of ballots, a secret laptop and several USB drives supposedly used to program favorable Democratic results in Pennsylvania, and even alleged videos of poll workers cheering as poll watchers are ordered out of counting rooms. Credible evidence of such allegations has never been produced, and the US Supreme Court rejected another GOP bid to block certification of the Pennsylvania result on the same day that Paxton filed his suit.


Paxton's key argument is that a handful of battleground states destroyed the integrity of the 2020 election vote totals. He insists the US Constitution was violated by allowing their legislatures to make last-minute changes that ignored federal electoral regulations. Paxton's plea to the Court is that Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia must be found to have used the Covid-19 pandemic as an excuse to manipulate outcomes. Funnily enough, Texas' Republican Gov. Gregg Abbott had done that very same thing by extending early voting by a week, extending the period in which mail-in ballots could be hand-delivered. Using his emergency authority because of the pandemic, Abbott accomplished exactly what his attorney general is saying other states did, improperly. His little lawsuit is frivolous at best and he knows it.

It's another political game to catch that golden goose, and once again avid Trump fans are desperately falling for it.

Another tactic of righties, deflection from the facts.

I'm glad you don't deny the corruption.

Clearly, the Left is very nervous.
I love when they wear their fear on their sleeve.

Lol, are we honestly surprised by SGs standard MO routine?

Apparently, the Texas case must be with enough merit to cause SG to lose composure and attack the character of the person running the suit

Nevermind the contexts of the case, its viability and potential result, nah, lets just make fun of Paxton.

Pathetic.

It seems they have good reason to be nervous. I think I had read somewhere that SCOTUS voted 6-3 to take this case. It also seems that other states are jumping in head's first as well.

SCOTUS receives approximately 7,000-8,000 petitions for a writ of certiorari each Term. The Court grants and hears oral argument in about 80 cases.

They don't suffer fools and incorrect or ambiguous filings. We will see... if this was the key

Light on the facts, heavy on the hyperbole. You never change SG.

The wheels of justice turn slow, but they do turn. He probably feels like a class A jackass for getting caught in what congress does daily.

Everyone is saying "states" are backing this. That makes it sounds pretty magnificent and huge. And yet, ALL of these states have already certified their electoral votes.

My guess is this particular AG Paxton is keeping options open for a pardon, as are probably the other corrupt swamp people. The states already voted. Now these ass-clowns think they can reverse it.

Guess what? It will fail with the rest. This is Trump-cult ceremony in full swing.
