FBI investigates whether Texas AG Ken Paxton swapped political favors for help with a multi-million dollar home renovation and a job for his 'mistress'

 The FBI have expanded their investigation into Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to look at whether he swapped political favors for help with a multi million dollar home renovation and a job for his supposed 'mistress', it has been claimed today.   

Last year, some of Paxton´s senior staff came forward to accuse him of committing crimes to help real estate developer Nate Paul, who reportedly donated to his re-election campaign. 

Now some of the Republican´s former deputies have claimed that Paul had a hand in work done on Paxton's home in a wealthy suburb of Austin.


Following the remarkable revolt that riled Texas politics, all of Paxton´s accusers quit or were fired and four later sued the attorney general under the state´s whistleblower law.

In a revised court complaint filed on Thursday, the group suing Paxton said they have information to suggest Paul 'was involved in' the 2020 remodeling of a home in an affluent Austin neighborhood that Paxton purchased in 2018, as reported by AP.

They do not spell out what this evidence is nor detail Paul´s alleged role in the renovation. 

The claim sheds new light on a possible motive for the acts that have brought Texas' top lawyer under federal scrutiny. And the FBI has taken interest.

At least one Austin contractor recently received a federal grand jury subpoena for records related to work on Paxton's home, according to a document obtained by AP and a person familiar with the matter.


The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The subpoena calls on the contractor to testify before a grand jury and to provide invoices, communications, receipts, payment records and other documents. The FBI declined to comment.

Paxton´s defense attorney, Philip Hilder, declined to comment. Paxton has not been charged with a crime in the FBI probe, and the attorney general has broadly denied wrongdoing.

Paul´s lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday.

Paul gave $25,000 to Paxton´s 2018 reelection campaign and employs a woman with whom the attorney general allegedly had an extramarital affair, but the full nature of their relationship remains unclear. According to the lawsuit, the woman works as a construction project manager.

Paul has been under FBI investigation since at least 2019. Last year, he launched a campaign of counter allegations against the agents, federal judges and other businessmen and officials.

Paxton hired an outside lawyer to investigate these claims in September before dropping the case when it became public.

The hire was one of four acts that appeared to help Paul and prompted Paxton´s eight top deputies to report him to the FBI for alleged abuse of office and bribery.

Paxton has positioned himself nationally as a conservative crusader.

He was a close ally of former President Donald Trump, asking the U.S. Supreme Court to invalidate Electoral College votes in battleground states in Trump's baseless effort to overturn Joe Biden's win.

Paxton also brought one of the first lawsuits against the new presidential administration, moving to halt Biden's 100-day moratorium on deportations.

The attorney general has spent most of his time in office under felony indictment. Paxton pleaded not guilty in 2015 to three state securities fraud charges but is yet to face trial.  

Last month Paxton filed a lawsuit to block President Joe Biden's 100-day pause on deportations of certain undocumented immigrants, claiming the state will face 'irreparable harm'.   

The suit is the first to be brought against one of the president's immigration actions, after he signed 17 executive orders within minutes of entering the Oval Office Wednesday - many of them reversing actions put in place by Donald Trump.

  2. So they are investigating him for getting a woman a job in exchange for a remodeling job!?!? Am I reading that correctly?? That is so fucking lame compared to all the other shit that the For Black Insurrections agency has turned a blind eye too. This has got to be the lightest example of corruption I have ever heard that is being investigated. I have seen much worse shit go down and nothing happens, like a election theft. This is obviously being politically motivated. If Paxton didn't file suit against the election fraud and if he left the Chief of Thieves alone the FBI wouldn't give a shit. Does anyone know of one democrat anywhere in the nation that is even being looked at by the FBI? They are going after all republicans that raised a fuss over the stolen election and Paxton was right at the front of the line. Hope Paxton beats this bullshit. This so called trade for political favors happens all the time. As long as it doesn't affect the public who cares. It sounds like Paxton did something that doesn't affect the public.
