The Texas State House of Representatives approved Saturday to impeach State Attorney General Ken Paxton on charges of alleged bribery, breach of public trust and inability to perform office and other public duties.


Agreement reached in principle on US debt ceiling.

Paxton, close to the figure of former President Donald Trump, has been one of the most prominent legal combatants of the Republican Party and in 2020 joined the petition to the United States Supreme Court to overturn the victory of Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the elections. presidential.

The 60-year-old magistrate has stated that the impeachment process is "political theater" based on "rumors and gossip", but the truth is that he has been under investigation by the FBI for several years on accusations of corruption and fraud, for those who have not yet been tried.

Last Thursday, a committee of the Texas House of Representatives recommended impeachment proceedings against Paxton, re-elected last November for his third term after years of scandals and corruption allegations.

The State House of Representatives, led by the Republican Party itself, began debate on Saturday to decide whether to impeach Paxton and suspend him from office.

With a unanimous vote, an unprecedented decision was made, which may end with the dismissal of the prosecutor. In the almost 200 years of Texas history, only two officials have been impeached, according to local press reports.

Former President Donald Trump, through his Truth Social social network, threatened Republicans who support impeachment, stating that he will fight alongside Paxton. "Hopefully Republicans agree that this is a highly unfair process that should not be allowed to happen or continue," he wrote.

The vote required only a simple majority in the House, which is made up of 85 Republican representatives and 64 Democrats.
