Meanwhile, in Texas

FBI agents on Thursday arrested a real estate developer at the center of allegations that have led to the impeachment of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, according to jail records.

Do you think he started to tell the arresting agents that his good friend Attorney General Paxton would have him out in no time and then remembered Paxton was temporarily indisposed? I like to think so.

Nate Paul was booked into the Travis County jail in Austin after his arrest, according to the jail’s online inmate records, which indicated he was there on undisclosed federal charges.

I’ve heard sitting in jail is very unpleasant. Maybe some Democratic Senators in the Texas legislature will send someone to pay him a call.

This is a hill of beans consisting of one bean compared to yesterday’s news, but it is always fun to see some scumbags get their hair mussed. Speaking of which, another democracy-hating trump flunky had a less than great day yesterday:

A federal court on Thursday rejected former Justice Department attorney Jeffrey Clark’s request to intervene in a legal disciplinary case pending against him over his efforts to help former President Donald Trump overturn his 2020 election loss.

Say, what’s that fella who tried to help Illinois Nazi White Supremacist Matthew Hale get his license to practice law up to these days? I’m sure members of the D.C. Bar would appreciate a long lecture about free speech.

Update courtesy of commentariati keta. Never mind the free speech lectures, Clark’s attorneys are doing fine.

Just fine (Politico).

In his legal filings, Clark contended that the D.C. Bar proceedings — which could result in his suspension or disbarment from law practice in Washington — are improper to bring against someone who worked as an attorney in the federal government. The District of Columbia, Clark contended, was specifically exempted from federal laws granting states the authority over bar discipline.

I don’t know how many of the attorneys who practice in D.C. are employed by federal agencies, but my conservative estimate would be a kilometric fuckload. D.C. isn’t all attorneys and lobbyists, contrary to the stupid stereotypes, but we have more than a few.

Anyway, according to Clark, the D.C. Bar can’t touch a single one of them. Here’s the original complaint, if you want or need a reminder of the scrambling the rats did to keep King Rat in the White House.

Maybe if he tells the disciplinary committee that he was almost Acting Attorney General they’ll be impressed?
