The political climate in the United States is as volatile as ever, with controversies and calls for impeachment seemingly at every turn. From Texas to California, the tensions are high, and the stakes are even higher.
In Texas, the House voted to impeach Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton on Saturday, meaning he will temporarily leave office. Paxton has been under FBI investigation over accusations that he used his office to help a donor and was separately indicted on securities fraud charges. The move to impeach Paxton has been met with both support and opposition from both sides of the aisle.
Just days after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton accused the state House speaker of presiding over the chamber while drunk and called on him to resign, the House voted to impeach Paxton. The move has been seen by some as retaliation for Paxton's accusations against the speaker.
