An investigative committee in the Texas House of Representatives has voted unanimously, 5-0, to adopt articles of impeachment for the state's Attorney General Ken Paxton. 

The full House could vote on the recommendation of impeachment as soon as Friday, according to Fox News.

Paxton is under investigation by the FBI for allegedly misusing his office to assist a donor. 

The articles of impeachment brought forward by the lawmakers accuse Paxton of engaging in bribery and unlawful conduct. 

Paxton says the investigation is politically motivated.

A lawyer in Paxton's office, Chris Hilton, said in a press conference that the House investigators' findings are "false," "misleading," and "full of errors big and small."
