    Apparently everyone who calls out Paxton as being dirty is a "Liberal" or a RINO.

    The move sets up what could be a remarkably sudden downfall for one of the GOP's most prominent legal combatants, who in 2020 asked the U.S. Supreme
    Court to overturn President Joe Biden's victory. Only two officials in
    Texas’ nearly 200-year history have been impeached.

    Paxton has been under FBI investigation for years over accusations that he
    used his office to help a donor. He was separately indicted on securities
    fraud charges in 2015, but has yet to stand trial.

    When the five-member committee's investigation came to light Tuesday, Paxton suggested it was a political attack by the House's “liberal” Republican speaker, Dade Phelan. He called for Phelan’s resignation and accused him of being drunk during a marathon session last Friday. Phelan’s office brushed
    off the accusation as Paxton attempting to “save face.”

    By moving against him, Paxton said, “The RINOs in the Texas Legislature are
    now on the same side as Joe Biden.”
