AUSTIN, Texas — Attorney General Ken Paxton came out swinging against a House impeachment plan on Friday and urged supporters to protest at the Capitol before the historic weekend vote.

Paxton blasted investigators for giving him no opportunity to present evidence during a brief speech from the attorney general’s office. The state’s top lawyer warned impeachment would defy the will of voters and imperil lawsuits that he’s filed against the Biden administration.
