The speaker of the Texas state legislature, Rep. Dade Phelan (R), is leading an effort to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Donald Trump ally and one of the most staunch foes of Big Tech censorship.

Nominally a Republican, Rep. Phelan has appointed over a dozen Democrats to chair committees in the Texas legislature, despite the GOP holding a supermajority in the chamber.

Phelan is a state representative for Texas’ 21st district, which covers most of Jefferson and all of Orange and Jasper counties in the southeast corner of the state.

The Texas Republican Party is ripping into Phelan for going after Paxton, who is one of Trump’s biggest allies in Texas, and has continually fought the Biden administration, especially on the issues of border security and election integrity.

Republican Party of Texas chairman Matt Rinaldi released the following statement:

“Speaker Dade Phelan and his leadership team have appointed Democrats to high ranking leadership positions, attacked the Republican Party of Texas, battled our  conservative Lieutenant Governor, and killed Governor Abbott’s top priorities. The impeachment proceedings against the Attorney General are but the latest front in the Texas House’s war against Republicans to stop the conservative direction of our state.

“This sham impeachment is the result of the Phelan leadership team empowering Democrats, allowing them to hold leadership positions and letting them control the agenda. It is based on allegations already litigated by voters, led by a liberal  Speaker trying to undermine his conservative adversaries, and investigated by lawyers connected to a Democrat on the House General Investigations Committee. The voters have supported General Paxton through three elections — and his popularity has only grown despite millions of dollars spent to try to defeat him. Now the Texas House is trying to overturn the election results.

“It seems Texas Republicans will have to rely yet again on the principled leadership of the Texas Senate to restore sanity and reason to our state.”

A number of other conservatives are speaking out in support of Paxton as well.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, “What the RINOs in the Texas State House are trying to do to America First patriot Ken Paxton is a disgrace. MAGA stands with @KenPaxtonTX against this RINO/Dem led witch hunt!!!”

One of the most SCORCHING condemnations against Phelan’s attempt to impeach Paxton comes from Blaze TV host Chad Prather.

“Dade Phelan… I call him Dud Phelan… he doesn’t even deserve to be called a RINO because at least that has Republican in it… this guy is a liberal progressive Democrat lackey… he has sold his soul to the devil for whatever price I don’t know,” Prather raged.

Author and filmmaker Mike Cernovich tweeted, “AG PAXTON is despised by Big Tech, and “Republicans” are selling out voters by trying a sham impeachment. If this works, the most effective State AG is off the field. Texas, where you at?! Get on the telephone! 🚨 Speaker’s Office 512-463-1000.”

In another tweet, Cernovich added, “Big Tech has bribed Texas Republicans into taking out their critic AG Paxton. Tomorrow the Texas House will vote to impeach! Unless you get on the telephone and start making calls! 512-463-1000.”

Conservative Jack Posobiec tweeted, “We are now seeing @DadePhelan and fake Republicans in TX sell out conservatives and attempt to overturn the will of the voters by removing duly-elected Ken Paxton from office. Vote the RINOs all out in March!”

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk also defended Paxton, writing, “Ken Paxton is an honorable man. The uniparty is after him – HARD. Why? Because he is suing Google effectively and actually going after entrenched corporations who hate America!”

Substack writer Caleb Scott tweeted, “Republicans in Texas need to rise up and defend Paxton. We need more Warrior Attorney Generals at the State level to fight the swamp!”

Texans for Strong Borders also released a statement condemning Phelan, saying he is prioritizing personal agendas over crucial border security legislation.

On Tuesday, Paxton had called for Dade Phelan to resign.

  1. Phelan is doing Bush family business. I understand that big tech has a hand in this but do not underestimate the lengths the Bush brothers will go to retake control over the GOP. I do believe they were involved in stealing the 2020 election. Taking this guy out is about stealing 2024. They are right up there with the Clintons when it comes to being ruthless.

  2. Do something Texas citizens. I have been on the phone all morning making my calls. It is important if we want to save our country that we do all we can to make that happen. Change starts with each one of us doing our part. United we stand. Divided we fall.
