How corrupt does a Republican have to be for the Republican Party to oust him? Pretty f*$king corrupt.

Once upon a time, the Republican Party was somewhat responsible and was ready to impeach President Richard Nixon over Watergate, forcing his resignation, but this isn’t the 1970s anymore.

The Republican Party refused to impeach and convict Donald Trump, both times the House impeached him, despite the fact he was recorded extorting the president of a foreign nation by withholding U.S. military aid in exchange for a political favor, and for his part in a seditious attempt to overturn an election and have himself installed as a dictator. A few Republicans did vote to impeach and convict him but most refused to defend our nation from a corrupt president.

The Republican Party is refusing to apply ethical rules to the Supreme Court or even question the corruption of Clarence Thomas. Several on the Senate committee holding hearings on forcing ethics on Supreme Court justices have the same sugar daddy as Clarence Thomas.

Speaker Kevin McCarthy and the Republican House are refusing to pressure George Santos to step down despite 13 criminal indictments over his corruption. 

So it’s kinda surprising that Texas Republicans impeached state Attorney General Ken Paxton today over allegations of bribery, unfitness for office, and abuse of public trust. In 2020, Paxton’s top aides accused him of abuse of office to benefit a wealthy donor. They alerted the FBI, which investigated Paxton but refused to press charges. Four of the aides were fired and filed suit alleging retaliation. After reaching a $3.3 million settlement, Paxton pressed for the payment to come out of the state’s budget.

The committee recommending impeachment released a memo Friday that said, “But for Paxton’s own request for a taxpayer-funded settlement over his wrongful conduct, Paxton would not be facing impeachment.”

And of course, Trump “truthed” on Truth Social, “It is the Radical Left Democrats, RINOS, and Criminals that never stop. ELECTION INTERFERENCE! Free Ken Paxton, let them wait for the next election!”
