HDC Chair Chris Turner Responds to AG Paxton’s Legal Interference in Case over Classified Documents Found in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Home

((TEXAS) – This morning, the Office of the Attorney General filed an amicus brief in the 11th Circuit in support of Donald Trump in the ongoing case over classified documents found in the former president’s Florida residence.

Texas House Democratic Caucus Chair Chris Turner issued the following statement in response:

“Just this morning, our disgraced attorney general sent a tweet disparaging an investigation out of Bexar County as ‘purely partisan grandstanding.’ Hours later, his office filed a brief in federal court in defense of Donald Trump that is just several pages of conspiracy theories about and political attacks on the Biden Administration.

“Ken Paxton is an embarrassment to Texas. Once again, he is wasting taxpayer time and money to curry favor with the former president and to stand in the way of justice. Texans deserve better.”

The Texas House Democratic Caucus, which is composed of all Democrats in the Texas House, serves as the group’s membership services and logistical arm, and works to support House Democrats with communications, policy, and legal resources. Chaired by Rep. Chris Turner (D – Grand Prairie), the Caucus is focused on fighting for real solutions for all Texans.
