Our Cross Examination of Ryan Bangert, Co-Coup Conspirator in the Shockingly Illegal Paxton Impeachment Trial

Our Cross Examination of Ryan Bangert, Co-Coup Conspirator in the Shockingly Illegal Paxton Impeachment Trial

Three days into the shockingly illegal impeachment trial against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, the public is finally hearing testimony under oath. Kept under wraps for months, we’re now witnessing the explicit details behind this conspiracy to commit a coup.

Here’s what we’ve learned.

  • American lawyer and former First Assistant Attorney General of Texas, Jeff Mateer, is dubbed a “whistleblower” by CNN. We’d favor the title “coup conspirator.”
  • Mateer is guilty of spoliation, the act of ruining or destroying something by illegal or unethical means, because he destroyed all of his case-related text messages, even after receiving a “preservation of evidence” notice.
  • Mateer and his co-conspirators went to the FBI and Governor’s Office, and afterward, Mateer received an “atta-boy” text from Richard “Dick” Trabulsi. Trabulsi is a Houston-based businessman with heavy involvement in Texans for Lawsuit Reform (TLR), a super PAC by Dick Weekley.
  • Through TLR, Dick Weekley and his network funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars into the campaigns of notorious Texan RINOs, including Katy State Rep. Jacey Jetton. TLR is Rep. Jetton’s top donor, as Katy Christian Magazine discovered in this investigative report.
  • Mateer and his co-conspirators illegally tampered with a government document by removing Gen. Paxton’s name from his own letterhead, and again by using this letterhead to send official correspondence to the FBI.

The co-conspiring signers of this letter were Mateer; Ryan Bangert, former Deputy First Assistant Attorney General; Blake Brickman, former Deputy Attorney General for Policy and Strategy Initiatives; Lacey Mase, a former deputy attorney general for the administration; Darren McCarty, former special counsel for Paxton; Mark Penley, former deputy attorney general for criminal justice; and Ryan Vassar, former legal counsel under Paxton.

  • Immediately after Mateer and his co-conspirators informed Sutton, the FBI, Johnny Sutton (we’ll get to him shortly) and the Governor’s Office of their “good faith” allegations, George P. Bush (another name we’ll discuss) applied to renew his Texas law license, in preparation for his run for attorney general, or perhaps in anticipation of an appointment by Gov. Greg Abbott.
  1. Taking this background information in account, Katy Christian Magazine and Don Hooper of Houston Conservative Forum have formed our own cross-examination for Bangert. We implore either Tony Buzbee or Anthony Osso, Paxton’s defense lawyers, to ask the same.
    1. Bangert, who altered a government document by removing Ken Paxton’s name from the AG letterhead; was it you? Did you also hire a criminal defense lawyer, and why?
  2. Bangert, who called George P. Bush; was it you?a. To clarify this line of questioning, George P. Bush is one of former president George W. Bush’s nephews. He ran for Texas Attorney General in the 2020 election cycle, and he was obliterated by Paxton in the primaries.
    a. Johnny Sutton is the “bagman” of George P. Bush and his colleagues. He’s the man who, essentially, is called upon to gather money to support their causes. Sutton is the former U.S. Attorney for the Western District (or Austin), appointed by George W. Bush while he was president, and he served as a governor right before this.
    a. Sutton later became George P. Bush’s bagman, working more or less as his and his friends’ lawyer.
    a. Then, somebody called George P. Bush and let him in on the conspiracy to illegally impeach Paxton.
    a. Before George P. Bush and his colleagues hired Sutton, they attempted to get him paid by the attorney general’s office as a lawyer in their case. When they realized they couldn’t do this because they’d all hired him, they all departed, and he became their lawyer.
    a. So Bangert, when did Sutton become your lawyer? We’ll answer this one: it was the day that he left the Attorney General’s office and quit.
    a. Bonus question for George P. Bush: your law license has been inactive for the past ten years, a cornerstone requirement to become the attorney general. When did you reactivate it? The day everybody left the Attorney General’s Office.3. Bangert, have you had any communications with TLR?
    a. Dick Weekley of TLR spent $13 million trying to knock Paxton off in the primaries. Each of his candidates was destroyed by Paxton.
    a. TLR, Dick Weekley and his network of donors and sellout RINO politicians are all tied to The Federalist Society, which is a group of people incessantly angling to become federal court judges. These are big, elitist and globalist people.
    a. Bonus question: Bangert, are you familiar with the “due process of law” clause in the Fifth Amendment, or is this not taught at law firm Baker Botts?
  1. Bangert, when did you first meet Johnny Sutton? How and where did the two of you acquaint yourselves? When did you hire him, and upon whose suggestion? Did you sign an engagement agreement with him?
    1. Bangert, Mateer and their co-conspirators tried to authorize taxpayer funds to pay for Sutton’s representation of them.
    2. After hiring Sutton, Bangert, Mateer and their Coup Committee went to the FBI and the Governor’s Office with that illegal document we’ve mentioned. Together, they met with Abbott’s General Counsel, Jeff Oldham, his Assistant General Counsel, James Sullivan, and his Chief of Staff, Luiz Saenz — all behind Gen. Paxton’s back.
  1. Bangert, for each of the following, (a) did they hire Johnny Sutton and (b) if so, when: Jeff Mateer, James Blake Brickman, Darren L. McCarty, Ryan M. Vassar, Lacey E. Mase and J. Mark Pendley? 


  1. Bangert, after you spoke with Sutton, with whom did you speak about Paxton? Do you know if Sutton voiced your “concerns” with Paxton to the following: Kary Rove, Dick Weekley, Dick Trabulsi, Luis Saenz, Greg Abbott, Dan Hodges and Jordan Berry? If so, when? Remember, you’re under oath.
  2. Bangert, where was Gen. Paxton when you and your co-conspirators spoke with the following people and entities: Sutton, the FBI, Luis Saenz and Jeff Oldham?
  3. (Exhibit: conspiracy letter.) Bangert, you say that you “reported to an appropriate law enforcement authority a potential violation of law committed by Warren K. Paxton, Kr.” Why didn’t you name this authority the FBI, or DOJ? What was this supposed “potential violation,” and what supporting evidence did you provide?
  4. Bangert, your “report” to the FBI was submitted without all of the evidence. As Deputy First Assistant Attorney General, was it your custom and practice to move forward on a case on mere suspicion alone? Do you agree that your “evidence” didn’t even meet the lowest burden of proof standard?
  5. Bangert, you’ve claimed you “notified” Gen Paxton, on Oct. 1, 2020, that you contacted “law enforcement” via text message, correct? Who sent this message? What people were copied on this message? Did you share it with anyone, and if so, with whom? When? Who drafted the message to Gen. Paxton?
  6. Bangert, on this same date, you were aware that Gen. Paxton supported former president Donald Trump, correct? Were you aware that the Trump administration withdrew Mateer’s judicial nomination because he called victimized children part of “Satan’s plan?” 
    1. Bonus question: Bangert, you didn’t vote in the 2020 primary election, correct?
  1. Bangert, have you applied to be a Federal Judge?

This concludes our cross examination of Bangert. We’ll call a recess for the day. Readers, meet Katy Christian Magazine in our chamber.


These primaries are getting expensive, and lobbyists are voicing their concerns, as the parties compelled to spend their own money to keep these people in office. Who specifically thought that this illegal, kangaroo-court impeachment trial was a good idea? How long, exactly, will this process take?


The reality is that we don’t know when the Gen. Paxton impeachment trial will be taken to a vote. We’re positive that the prosecuting team met up nights ago and frantically plotted how to shut it down quickly.

“Let’s take a vote early! Let’s be done with this,” we hear their RINO voices quaver from across the state.

It is not in the prosecution’s best interest to allow the impeachment trial to unfold for much longer. The defense team is aware of their monstrosities and equipped with insights and evidence that could literally take down the governor, TLR and every signer on that illegitimate document. This could backfire horribly, and the only logical strategy is to order an early vote to try to throw out Paxton as quickly as possible.

The Austin Swamp certainly didn’t think it would be this hard to take him down.
