Texas Senate Gives Members Until Late August To Begin Impeachment Trial For AG Paxton



Just the News: The impeachment trial of Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton will start before September in the state Senate, where his wife, Sen. Angela Paxton, may serve as a juror.

Attorney General Paxton, a conservative legal star, is suspended from office pending the trial in the state Senate, which lawmakers on Monday scheduled to begin no later than Aug. 28, according to The Associated Press.

The Republican-controlled state House voted121-23 Saturday to impeach Paxton over accusations that he participated in bribery and unlawful conduct.

The impeachment trial now moves to the 31-member state Senate, where Sen. Paxton, who has not publicly spoken since her husband was impeached, may act as a juror if she does not recuse herself.

The attorney general has said the impeachment is “illegal” and “politically motivated.” Former President Donald Trump has also defended Paxton and said his impeachment “is a very unfair process that should not be allowed to happen or proceed.”
