Texas House recommends impeaching Attorney General Ken Paxton after investigators detailed YEARS of wrongdoing – days after he sparked spat with Speaker by accusing him of being drunk at a vote
Paxton has been accused of many crimes while in power and has been at the center of spat among senior Republican party members after he claimed House Speaker Dade Phelan was drunk during votes.
The committee has been secretly looking into Paxton for months, and a vote setting up his removal from office could happen as soon as Friday.
Paxton, who asked the Supreme Court to overturn President Joe Biden‘s 2020 win, has claimed the investigation is purely political, and has attacked the leadership of the state GOP for being too ‘liberal’.
