(NY Times)[The Texas House] committee filed 20 articles of impeachment against Mr. Paxton, charging him with a litany of abuses including taking bribes, disregarding his official duty, obstructing justice in a separate securities fraud case pending against him, making false statements on official documents and reports, and abusing the public trust.

Many of the charges related to the various ways that Mr. Paxton had used his office to benefit a particular donor, the committee said, and then fire those in the office who spoke up against his actions.

As the articles were being handed out around the House chamber late Thursday, Andrew Murr, the chairman of the committee, a Republican, said that they described “grave offenses” and that he intended to bring them up for a vote by the House.

The extraordinary developments were likely to test the Republican Party in Texas in new and unpredictable ways, at a time when divisions in the party have increasingly been exposed.

The Texas House is led by Speaker Dade Phelan, a Republican representing Beaumont who is seen as a traditional conservative. In contrast, Mr. Paxton has been allied with the most strident Republican legislators in Texas and with former President Donald J. Trump, in a camp that also includes the lieutenant governor and leader of the State Senate, Dan Patrick.

    Corrupt Texas AG Ken Paxton impeached. How hard was that? (Houston Chronicle Editorial)

    Looking at the evidence, there's no doubt that he should be charged criminally. It seems like the GOP (since they're the majority party) are not the little NAZIs the dims are by supporting pedojoe, little nancy, and others.

    My question is STILL. You seem giddy when it's a GOP and refuse to look at facts for a dim. I find that disgusting and two faced. If NO ONE is above the law, why is that still selective? Again, it makes no sense to me except if you're a fascist supporting your dictator.
