Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton warned the Biden administration to "buckle up" after he defeated an impeachment trial against him.
Paxton was accused of corruption charges but the impeachment did not meet the number of votes needed for his removal from office.

"The attorney general was accused of misusing his political power to hire Nate Paul, a real estate developer who employed Paxton's alleged mistress Laura Olson. Paul was indicted in June for allegedly making false statements to banks," Fox News reported.
"Paxton was also accused of dereliction of duty, retaliating against former employees who reported his alleged wrongdoings to authorities and making false statements in regard to whistleblower accusations from former staffers," it added.

“The sham impeachment coordinated by the Biden Administration with liberal House Speaker Dade Phelan and his kangaroo court has cost taxpayers millions of dollars, disrupted the work of the Office of Attorney General and left a dark and permanent stain on the Texas House,” Paxton’s letter read.
“The weaponization of the impeachment process to settle political differences is not only wrong, it is immoral and corrupt,” the embattled attorney general added.
His letter also warned to "buckle up" as Paxton plans to go after "lawless policies."
Paxton has already sued the Biden administration more than any other Attorney General and has been a strong warrior against its open-border policies.
The future is likely to see more legal action from Paxton against Biden as he has now passed impeachment proceedings and can focus on policies impacting Texas.
The actions could cause problems for Biden's border issues as he comes under scrutiny for record numbers of migrants entering the nation under his leadership.
