SUMMARY: Attorney General Ken Paxton has accused the Texas House ethics committee of planning a second impeachment attempt against him, calling it a “desperate” move by the Republican establishment.

Previously, the committee had recommended Paxton's impeachment for corruption, leading to 20 articles including bribery charges; however, the Senate acquitted him on most charges.

No further comments were provided by Paxton or Murr.
