Ken Paxton Impeachment

Gov. Greg Abbott can pick a fill-in attorney general. He’s so far been silent on impeachment.

Abbott himself is a former attorney general, preceding Paxton in the position. The governor has built deep connections in the conservative legal world and is known to lean on former aides for high-profile appointments.

Gov. Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton hosted 12 attorneys general from around the U.S. for a border security briefing at Texas DPS regional headquarters in Weslaco on Jan. 27, 2022.
