A Texas House of Representatives investigative committee recommended impeachment for embattled state Attorney General Ken Paxton.
The Texas House Investigative Committee unanimously voted 5-0 to adopt articles of impeachment for Paxton on Thursday, according to FOX 4.
A vote on the recommendation could come as soon as Friday.
If the Texas House votes to impeach Paxton, he would be required to immediately leave his office pending a trial by the state Senate.
The FBI had launched a corruption case against Paxton, accusing him of using his office to assist a donor. He was also indicted in 2015 on securities and fraud charges, but hasn’t yet faced a trial, the report states.
Paxton, who has repeatedly gone after the Biden administration, blasted out the following statement Thursday evening:
Texas faces a critical moment for the rule of law and the will of Texas voters. Only months ago, Texas went to the polls and made a choice. They made their choice during a primary where over 1.5 million Texans cast their vote. They made that choice again when over 8 million people voted in the general election. Just yesterday, four liberal lawyers put forward a report to the House General Investigating Committee based on hearsay and gossip, parroting long-disproven claims. Today, that Committee has asked the Texas House of Representatives to use their unsubstantiated report to overturn the results of a free and fair election. This process provided no opportunity for rebuttal or due process. They even refused to allow a senior attorney from my office to provide the facts. They rejected every attempt to seek a full accounting of the truth.
By attacking the Office of the Attorney General, corrupted politicians in the Texas House, led by liberal Speaker Dade Phelan, are actively destroying Texas’s position as the most powerful backstop against the Biden agenda in the entire country. The RINOs in the Texas Legislature are now on the same side as Joe Biden, Alejandro Mayorkas, and Chuck Schumer, collaborating to tie our hands and render Texas less powerful and effective in the fight for the nation’s future. They want nothing more than to sabotage our legal challenges to Biden’s extremist agenda by taking me out as the state’s Attorney General.
There is a reason CNN called Texas “a legal graveyard for Biden policies.” I am doing exactly what voters elected me to do. It 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.
