Trump's top Texas backer joined 'Stop the Steal.' It's ending badly for him.

Itís become an ironclad law of this political moment: If you fall in with Donald Trumpís sordid schemes, itís probably only a matter of time until his vortex of corruption claims you entirely.

The pull of that vortex is now being illustrated by a remarkable breaking story out of Texas. It concerns one Ken Paxton, the Republican attorney general of Texas and one of the most devoted servants in the land of Trumpís efforts to subvert the 2020 election.

Paxton is coming under fire at home for refusing to turn over texts and emails related to his trip to the Capitol to join the Jan. 6 ďStop the StealĒ rally. His association with Trumpís schemes is now coming to a head: The Travis County district attorney has just announced that Paxton may be running afoul of the stateís open records law.

You may remember Paxton. He led that despicable lawsuit brought by Republican attorneys general that sought to invalidate millions of votes in four states, all because those states went for Joe Biden.

3. I can't get by the paywall but there is an article talking about Paxton's

efforts to keep his emails and texts from exposure. Sure hope the DOJ are on him as well.

4. I hope this ultimately includes communication the other State AG's that were supportive.

The Republican Attorneys General Association sent robocalls urging people march to the Capitol. Given how wide this is spreading, I don't doubt a wide net would catch them in their criminality.
