Paxton now has four days to turn over those records.

The ruling is the result of a lawsuit filed by some of the largest newspapers in Texas including the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Travis County District Attorney José Garza has ruled that information should be made available to the public.

Paxton was in Washington D.C. on the day of the deadly insurrection and attended a pro-Trump rally before the attack on the US Capitol.
