The real reason they want to impeach Paxton could have something to do with this:
Why are they trying to impeach Texas Attorney General @KenPaxtonTX?

Paxton lashed out against this impeachment sham and called on his supporters to fight.
Paxton has denied the charges and on Friday lashed out against his critics, saying that removing him from office would be a gift for President Joe Biden and his Democratic agenda.
Staking out a position on the far right on divisive cultural issues, Paxton has sued the Biden administration nearly 50 times attempting to halt what has he labeled as “unlawful tyrannical policies” on issues including immigration, gun rights and business regulation.
The five-member Texas House General Investigating Committee voted unanimously on Thursday to recommend that Paxton be impeached and removed from office.
“They are showcasing their absolute contempt for the electoral process. Every politician who supports this deceitful impeachment attempt will inflict lasting damage on the credibility of the Texas House,” said Paxton, who easily won reelection last year after fending off a Republican primary challenge from George P. Bush, a scion of two former presidents.
The committee has heard testimony from its investigators about several years of alleged abuse of office by Paxton, including that he provided friend and donor Nate Paul, a Texas real estate developer, with FBI files related to the bureau’s investigation into Paul.
The impeachment articles also allege Paxton engaged in bribery when Paul hired a woman with whom Paxton was having an extramarital affair.
As of yesterday, Paxton has officially been impeached by the House, and we have yet to see what happens next.

RINOs are doing the heavy lifting for the left. Both are determined to undermine the MAGA movement and target anyone who stands by the principles of putting America First.
The Texas House has scheduled the vote for Saturday to decide the fate of Ken Paxton and MAGA is fired up and ready to defend him at all costs.
Don Jr. put out this tweet, basically declaring war between the GOP establishment and MAGA:
What the RINOs in the Texas State House are trying to do to America First patriot Ken Paxton is a disgrace.

Former Dem turned America First warrior Vernon Jones echoed Don Jr.’s statement in his own powerful tweet:
If Republicans in Texas go against Ken Paxton, the America First movement will go against them. We will go to war with the RINO establishment and primary them out to pasture.

Conservative influence Kam is calling out RINO and “liberal in GOP clothing” Dade Phelan who’s leading the charge against Paxton.
Everyone watch this.
RINO @DadePhelan's impeachment against Ken Paxton is illegal. We have supported @KenPaxtonTX through 2 re-elections. Dade is attempting to overturn an election. He belongs in California. Vote him out in March.

But it was President Trump who delivered the most brutal blow to Dade with two blistering posts on Truth Social.
Dade is the allegedly drunken fool leading the charge against Paxton. This is how he showed up on the floor of the Texas House — three sheets to the wind.
The @RSLC pissed away $290K of their donors’ money to help get @DadePhelan elected. This drunk fool is now leading the charge to impeach @KenPaxtonTX. Don’t give RSLC another penny until they drop this guy. pic.twitter.com/NomTTONsvK

Ted Cruz is with Paxton.
1/x What is happening to @KenPaxtonTX is a travesty.
For the last nine years, Ken has been the strongest conservative AG in the country. Bar none. No attorney general has battled the abuses of the Biden admin more ferociously—and more effectively—than has Paxton.

Paxton is fighting this mess.
I am beyond grateful to have the support of millions of Texans who recognize that what we just witnessed is illegal, unethical, and profoundly unjust. I look forward to a quick resolution in the Texas Senate, where I have full confidence the process will be fair and just. pic.twitter.com/fEiAroA2DW
