Former President Donald Trump is weighing in as the impeachment trial against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton winds down, calling it “shameful.”

Trump made the comment Wednesday night on Truth Social, his social media platform. He blamed “establishment RINOs” for trying to overturn the election of Paxton, who he called one of the “toughest and best” attorneys general in the country, and replace him with a “Democrat or worse, a RINO.”

“Democrats are feeling very good right now as they watch, as usual, the Republicans fight & eat away at each other. It’s a SAD day in the Great State of Texas!” wrote Trump. 

Donald Trump Jr. also chimed in on X, saying RINO hunting season is coming.

This is not the first time Trump has expressed his support for Paxton. Ahead of the House’s impeachment vote in May, Trump said he would fight any Republican who voted for the impeachment resolution.

Additionally, Trump has called out Gov. Greg Abbott for being “missing in action” as the impeachment has gone forth.
