- The Texas House General Investigating Committee voted unanimously on Thursday in favor of 20 articles of impeachment against the state’s attorney general.
- A vote on the floor of the Texas House to impeach Ken Paxton could occur by the weekend and would result, if approved by a majority vote, in his suspension as attorney general pending a trial in the Texas Senate.
- The articles include allegations that include the misapplication of public resources, bribery, and obstruction of justice.
- Paxton responded to the vote by the committee and called it a political attack by the House’s “liberal” Republican Speaker Dade Phelan. “It’s is a sad day for Texas as we witness the corrupt political establishment unite in this illegitimate attempt to overthrow the will of the people and disenfranchise the voters of our state,” Paxton said in an official statement Thursday.
