AG Paxton to Newsmax: Dems ‘Weaponized’ Legal System to Get Trump

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, told Newsmax Saturday that Democrats have “weaponized” the legal system across the country over the past four years just to keep former President Donald Trump out of office with “political” prosecutions.

“I think people can see that [Democrats have] weaponized the legal system across the nation. And they’ve done it over the last two, three, four years very effectively to take out their political opponents,” Paxton said on “Wake Up America” Saturday. “Obviously [Trump has] announced for president. The primaries coming up, and they’re doing their best to take him out. I don’t believe any of it.”

Trump posted on Truth Social Saturday that he expects he will be indicted and arrested in New York City regarding the case of ex-porn star Stormy Daniels and Trump’s alleged $130,000 hush-money payment to conceal an affair the two had prior to the 2016 presidential race.
