Tony Buzbee deletes Instagram post saying it represents Paxton

Houston, Texas (KTRK) – Questions still loom over Ken Paxton’s upcoming impeachment trial in the Texas Senate, with prominent Houston attorney Tony Buzby now saying he has been retained to represent the state’s attorney general.

Buzbee took the announcement to his Instagram page late Friday night. It was posted around 9:30pm but was taken down about 90 minutes later.

“Don’t believe all the crap you read about this case in the media. We look forward to revealing the actual truth and exonerating this public servant. I am very confident that justice will prevail,” read part of his now-deleted post.

Buzbee is the third well-known Houston attorney to join the case, this time on Paxton’s side.

Paxton is accused of bribery, retaliation and obstruction of justice, with some of the allegations dating back to 2015, when he was charged with securities fraud.

Two heavyweight attorneys from Houston, Dick Degren and Rusty Hardin, who have over 100 years of combined legal experience, will be the lead plaintiffs for the House of Representatives.

DeGuerin and Hardin are used in prominent cases. Hardin has represented politicians, celebrities and many major corporations.
