FBI has issued subpoena in investigation into Texas AG Paxton

According to a report from KENS5, the FBI has served at least one federal subpoena for records to the office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

Paxton spearheaded the recent prominent Texas lawsuit against four battleground states that was rejected by the Supreme Court.

Account to KENS5 “Sources confirmed to KVUE the requests for information were issued on Wednesday at the agency’s headquarters on West 14th Street. It was not immediately clear how many subpoenas were issued or what information federal agents sought.”

The investigation began in after former officials in his office alleged that he had abused his position to help Austin investor Nate Paul.

The allegations include potential crimes such as abuse of office and bribery.

Paxton has denied any wrongdoing.
