The Texas Tribune reports:
The impeachment trial for suspended Attorney General Ken Paxton is set to begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the Senate chamber of the Texas Capitol. The Senate gallery will be open to the public daily, beginning at 8 a.m., with tickets distributed for the morning session on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 7:30 a.m. on the Capitol’s third floor. Tickets for the afternoon session will be distributed 45 minutes before the gallery reopens.
Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick will act as judge. Senators, serving as jurors, will consider 16 of 20 articles of impeachment. The Senate previously voted to delay consideration of the other four. Paxton’s wife, Sen. Angela Paxton, will sit as a member of the court but will not vote on any decisions or participate in private deliberations. The trial will begin with the court clerk reading aloud the 16 articles.
Read the full article. We’ll have the live-stream here on JMG in a few hours and since much of the testimony will center on “servant of Christ” Paxton fucking a woman he’s not married to, things could get juicy. As a bonus, his wife, a state senator, has to sit there and listen but she cannot vote.
Ken Paxton’s impeachment trial, under Texas Senate rules, will involve key votes on article dismissal, sworn testimony, private juror deliberations, and debate-free votes.
Here’s how the trial will operate. https://t.co/A8JH8fDM8n
