Crook Ken Paxton made a deal and does not have to go to jail for his securities fraud case that he managed to delay for years.

Under the 18-month pre-trial agreement, the special prosecutors would drop three felony counts against Paxton, while he must pay full restitution to victims, and complete 100 hours of community service and 15 hours of legal ethics education.

Paxton was said nothing in the courtroom other than affirming to state District Judge Andrea Beall that his signature was on the agreement

Paxton still faces legal troubles, however. A federal investigation has been probing some of the same charges presented in his impeachment and former aides who reported Paxton to the FBI are trying to make him testify in a whistleblower civil lawsuit.

Anybody else find it more than absurd that Paxton, who is the Texas Attorney General, has to take 15 hours of legal ethics education??? Course I never understood why Texas Republicans kept voting in this crook, guess they really like people who break the law.

On Trump’s fraud trial where he had his bond lowered yesterday from an appeals court. Question is, does he still owe the full amount of his judgement regardless of bond? Yes

Letitia James, AG for NY.

“Donald Trump is still facing accountability for his staggering fraud. The court has already found that he engaged in years of fraud to falsely inflate his net worth and unjustly enrich himself, his family, and his organization. The $464 million judgment – plus interest – against Donald Trump and the other defendants still stands,” James said in a statement.

MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin on Monday pointed towards a clause in the ruling stating that the court denied Trump’s motion to stay the provision of the judgment, adding that this matters due to the former president’s legal team previously noting the importance of that provision.

“Yes, Trump got his bond in the civil fraud case reduced to $175 million. But guess what? The court denied his motion to stay the provision of the judgment forbidding him from borrowing from financial institutions registered or chartered in NY state. That matters because his legal team previously told a judge on the panel that staying that provision was integral to his ability to obtain a bond. And without a stay of that provision, will Trump have to post his own cash within the next 10 days?” she asked.

Trump justice official Jeffrey Clark facing an ethics hearing today (March 26)

Clark, who served as acting head of the Justice Department’s civil division under Trump, faces a multi-day hearing on ethics charges that accuse him of attempting to take actions “involving dishonesty” and that “would seriously interfere with the administration of justice.”

Clark sought to send a letter to Georgia officials in December 2020 falsely claiming that the Justice Department had “identified significant concerns” that may have led to Trump’s loss in that state, according to ethics charges filed in 2022.

The hearing is being held by a three-member committee of the Board on Professional Responsibility, an arm of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. If it finds that Clark violated ethics rules, it could recommend that his license be suspended or revoked. The full board would take up such a recommendation, with final action in the hands of the appeals court.

The D.C. Office of Disciplinary Counsel, which investigates lawyers accused of violating legal ethics rules, brought the case against Clark.

Trump is the Republican candidate challenging Democratic President Joe Biden in the Nov. 5 U.S. election. Trump faces criminal charges in state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington over his attempts to overturn his 2020 loss to Biden.

Trump co-defendant Michael Roman subpoenaed, Kenneth Chesebro interviewed in Arizona 2020 election probe: Sources

ABC News previously obtained a Dec. 6, 2020, memo authored by Chesebro, that laid out a plan for “alternate” electors to meet, vote, and send in their certificates to be counted in a proposal that prosecutors said was designed to “mimic as best as possible the actions of the legitimate Biden electors, and that on January 6, the Vice President [would] open and count the fraudulent votes, setting up a fake controversy that would derail the proper certification of Biden as president-elect.”

Roman was previously indicted in Georgia in August alongside Trump and 17 others over allegations that the group attempted to overturn that state’s election results. He pleaded not guilty to the seven counts he faces, which include charges relating to his alleged efforts to help coordinate and appoint alternate slates of electors.

The indictment alleges Roman was involved in that effort in multiple states.
