Democrats, the liberal media, and even left-leaning Republicans conducted a witch hunt based on rumor and innuendo, and they lost. Paxton maintained his innocence throughout this process, and this verdict is vindication against this politically motivated attack.
Paxton hasn’t been vindicated in this case, he’s just been saved by Republicans willing to place him above the law because he shares their politics. They used the Trump playbook to characterize his crimes as a "witch hunt" in the face of overwhelming evidence of guilt. Justice hasn’t been served, and democracy has been jeopardized.
