Texas House recommends impeachment of Attorney General Ken Paxton after investigators detailed YEARS of wrongdoing – days after he sparked a row with the president by accusing him of being drunk during a vote
A Republican-led committee in the Texas House of Representatives has recommended impeaching the state’s GOP attorney general, Ken Paxton, after years of claims he abused his office.
Paxton has been charged with numerous crimes while in office and has been at the center of arguments among senior Republican Party officials after he claimed House Speaker Dade Phelan was drunk during votes.
The committee has been secretly examining Paxton for months, and a vote to impeach him could take place as early as Friday.
Paxton, who asked the Supreme Court to overturn President Joe Biden’s 2020 victory, claimed the investigation was purely political and attacked the state’s GOP leadership for being too “liberal.”
