Just when we thought it was virtually over at this Texas Legislature, it appears that Speaker Dade Phelan and his team is joining with Democrats to launch a lightening strike on Ken Paxton by bringing up a vote on impeachment to the House floor this afternoon.
This is Deep State action to bring down the most effective Attorney General in the nation in stopping rogue actions by the rogue presidency. Note that Trump is not the only target of the Deep State. Trump endorsed candidates are also at risk.
This will be a defining vote for distinguishing between establishment state reps and grassroots state reps.
Paxton has maintained that charges against him, ones that were deployed by both his primary and general election opponents only to be rejected by the voters, are incorrect. He has never been convicted in a court of law for any of this.
Not only is this impeachment a blitzkrieg and bogus, it is a disenfranchisement of the voters and illegal.
The statute under which impeachment is implemented in Texas is the Texas Government Code, Chapter 665. That chapter contains the following:
Sec. 665.081. NO REMOVAL FOR ACTS COMMITTED BEFORE ELECTION TO OFFICE. (a) An officer in this state may not be removed from office for an act the officer may have committed before the officer's election to office.
The charges are nothing new. The voters were made aware of the charges and rejected them.
