Donald Trump’s final election lawsuit, originated by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, has literally zero chance of succeeding. It’s basically written in crayon, and Paxton clearly only originated it in the hope of getting on the good side of Donald Trump, from whom he needs a federal pardon.
Even as various Republicans sign onto the suit specifically because they know it has no chance of succeeding, it turns out the walls are closing in on Paxton himself. The Austin American-Statesman newspaper is reporting today that the FBI hit Paxton with a subpoena yesterday in the ongoing criminal case against him.
This is a big deal because it shows just how deep and imminent Ken Paxton’s legal troubles are, and how badly he needs Donald Trump to preemptively pardon him. It also serves to underscore what a farce this lawsuit is, and the fact that Paxton only filed it because he needed to get on Trump’s good side, and not because he has any expectation that it’ll actually go anywhere.
