Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s statement on the State Bar of Texas’ Investigatory Panel

From the Office of the Lt. Governor Dan Patrick

AUSTIN - Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today on the State Bar of Texas’ naming of a partisan and one-sided Investigatory Panel against the attorney general:

“The State Bar of Texas’ Investigatory Panel’s attack against Attorney General Paxton appears politically motivated and in violation of Article 2, Section 1 of the Texas Constitution, guaranteeing a separation of powers among the branches of government. It is clear the Investigatory Panel, stacked with Biden and Democrat donors and activists, has weaponized its state-granted power, intended to protect a fair and just practice of law, to instead launch an attack over political differences. These actions undermine the integrity of the Investigatory Panel and the State Bar of Texas as a whole.”
