President Trump and his allies are fighting tooth and nail to expose voter fraud and protect the integrity of the election.
There was one case that the President and his team thought held the winning hand.
And now an FBI subpoena turned this voter fraud investigation upside down.
The state of Texas filed a lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin stating they illegally changed the procedures to expand no excuse vote-by-mail.
Texas argued these states’ unconstitutional expansion of vote-by-mail disenfranchised the rest of the states that played by the rules.
But two days before the Supreme Court was set to decide if they would hear this case the FBI hit Attorney General Ken Paxton with a subpoena regarding a bribery investigation.
KVUE ABC reported:
FBI agents have issued at least one federal subpoena for records from the Texas attorney general’s office in an ongoing investigation into allegations against Attorney General Ken Paxton.
Sources confirmed to KVUE the requests for information were issued on Wednesday at the agency’s headquarters on West 14th Street. It was not immediately clear how many subpoenas were issued or what information federal agents sought.
The investigation revolved around Paxton’s interactions with a prominent Austin, Texas businessman.
KVUE ABC also reported:
The investigation started after top Paxton aides alleged to the FBI in early October they believe Paxton may be committing crimes that include abuse of office and bribery in his dealings with Austin investor Nate Paul.
The group claimed Paxton took a number of steps to benefit Paul, whose offices were raided by the FBI last year. Those steps included hiring an outside investigator to investigate Paul’s assertion that the FBI violated his constitutional rights during the raid.
Some Trump critics thought Paxton only filed this lawsuit to get in President Trump’s good graces in order to win a pardon before Donald Trump left office.
Paxton may be guilty of the charges against him.
But the timing of the FBI’s subpoena struck many as suspicious.
Back in 2016 the FBI used the fake news Christopher Steele dossier to frame former Trump foreign policy campaign staffer Carter Page for acting as a Russian agent to win a FISA warrant to spy on him.
From that point forward the Bureau spent years trying to destroy anyone connected with President Trump.
Critics contend Robert Mueller even tipped off fake news CNN that the FBI would stage an arrest of nearly 70-year-old Trump advisor Roger Stone in the early hours of the morning using land, air and amphibious assault forces.
The FBI serving Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton with a subpoena just as the Supreme Court is deciding on if it would hear his lawsuit to overturn the results of the 2020 election smells like a political hit job to punish Paxton for coming to President Trump’s aid.
