During the interview, Paxton revealed that the Biden administration had a role to play in his impeachment.
"There were two of the four House investigating lawyers that worked at the Department of Justice in Washington. That’s not random," said Paxton.`
Paxton explained that in the House investigating committee, there’s five members, three of which are Republicans and two are Democrats.
"And they hired, I think it was four lawyers. Two of them came from the Biden DOJ. That’s not an accident. They were sent there."
Carlson noted that Paxton has filed 48 suits against the Biden administration, to which Paxton said "I think that was the motivation" to send these lawyers.
"We were causing a lot of trouble for the Biden administration. Even if we didn’t, we slowed them down. We were winning. Like, I think our number is 77 percent of our cases."
"So we are a huge problem for the Biden administration, and that was the way to get me out of the way."
Carlson questioned whether Paxton thought "that the effort to remove you from office really came from the Biden administration," to which Paxton said, "I really do."
"I think that’s where it was instigated. And then there were other groups in Texas."
Later in the conversation, Paxton noted the group called Texans for Lawsuit Reform, who had contributed "a lot of money" towards Eva Guzman, who had run against Paxton in 2022.
"And they thought that if they got enough people running against me, they could take me out of a primary, run me out of money by putting me into a runoff. And this group has spent a lot of money and they were certainly not only part of trying to get me defeated, but they were also very much a part of this effort," said Paxton.
Paxton said the group published articles and sent them to Karl Rove at the Wall Street Journal, who in turn published them in the outlet, "whereas we couldn’t get anything published in the Wall Street Journal, even before the gag order, we were turned down for our editorial."
Paxton told Carlson during the interview that he was "reenergized" to return to his office and continue work, which he has been blocked from doing for months.
"I’ve been thinking about what I want to do when I get back since the day I left and so I’m reenergized to do the things that I think the voters sent me to do."
Paxton said he ran again for Attorney General "because I was in the middle of so many big things," adding that "we’re trying to stop the Biden administration from ignoring the Constitution and just ram-rodding things through outside of the legislative process."
"If we don’t fight now, we’re gonna lose our freedom. We lose Texas, we lose everything."
