"Today," he wrote, "the truth prevailed."
"The truth could not be buried by mudslinging politicians or their powerful benefactors. I've said many times: Seek the truth! And that is what was accomplished.
"I thank the 4.2 million Texans who voted for me last year. I will always be grateful for your support, and I will continue to honor your vote by defending the rule of law and our constitutional rights. I'm also grateful for the state senators who followed the law and refused to overturn an election. I also thank my legal team for exposing the absurdity of these false allegations.
"Most importantly, I want to thank my amazing wife Angela, who I love dearly. She is a brave woman of deep faith, unquestionable integrity, and the light of our entire family.
"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.
"The weaponization of the impeachment process to settle political differences is not only wrong, it is immoral and corrupt.
"Now that this shameful process is over, my work to defend our constitutional rights will resume. Thank you to everyone who has stood with us during this time.
"Finally, I can promise the Biden Administration the following: buckle up because your lawless policies will not go unchallenged. We will not allow you to shred the constitution and infringe on the rights of Texans. You will be held accountable.
"I will next address the nation and Texas on Tucker Carlson next week. Now it is back to work!"
Paxton was brought up on impeachment charges by the Texas state House after they refused to pay out a settlement of $3.3 million to former Paxton staffers who had alleged workplace harassment.
Paxton was aquitted on all 16 impeachment counts, and four others were dismissed via a motion filed after that acquittal. Senators Paul Bettencourt, Brian Birdwell, Donna Campbell, Brandon Creighton, Pete Flores, Bob Hall, Joan Huffman, Bryan Hughes, Phil King, Lois Kolkhorst, Mayes Middleton, Tan Parker, Charles Perry, Kevin Sparks, Drew Springer, and John Whitmire voting to acquit consistently.
Lt Governor Dan Patrick spoke out against the impeachment upon acquittal, saying that the House had no business bringing forth articles of impeachment after only a few days deliberation, and had wasted the money and time of the taxpayers in so doing.
