Texas House on Saturday voted 212-23 to impeach Attorney General Ken Paxton. The 60-year-old is being investigated on accusations of corruption, abuse of power, retaliating against whistleblowers and obstructing justice.

Paxton is now temporarily suspended as attorney general. He will go through a Senate trial.

Behind the impeachment is GOP Rep Andrew Murr. He is the chair of the General Investigating Committee.

“The evidence is substantial. It is alarming and unnerving,” Murr said in his closing statement. The committee has recommended 20 counts of impeachment against the AG.

Paxton on Friday denied any wrongdoing in a news press conference.

“The false testimony of highly partisan Democrat lawyers with the goal of manipulating and misleading the public is reprehensible. Every allegation is easily disproved, and I look forward to continuing my fight for conservative Texas values,” Paxton said.

Murr brought up the resolution earlier this week. “Mr. Speaker, I call up the privilege resolution H.R. 2377 impeaching Warren Kenneth Paxton, Attorney General for the state of Texas.”
