A Texas man’s SUV was burned and his home vandalized in an apparent racist attack.

The homeowner, who asked to remain anonymous in news accounts, said he was sleeping in his Highlands home about 4:30 a.m. Friday when was awakened by flashing lights, reported KPRC-TV.

He looked outside and saw his vehicle was on fire, and he ran outside and found “n****r leave” had been painted on both his SUV and the side of his house, police said.

The man has five children, but they do not live with him and were not present at the time.

The Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the incident as a possible hate crime, the TV station reported.

Authorities are checking the neighborhood for surveillance cameras for possible evidence in the case.

Another Texas man admitted to spray-painting racist graffiti on his own home in Denton and setting a truck and motorcycle on fire earlier this month, and his wife said he has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital.

House Democrats are divided over whether to add special counsel Robert Mueller's evidence to the impeachment process.

The House Judiciary Committee on Monday will hear evidence turned up during testimony from the impeachment inquiry focusing on President Donald Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden, but some Democrats want to expand the process to include the Russia investigation, reported The Daily Beast.

“This office has been abused and damaged in profound ways,” said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA). “I personally would be for holding him accountable for every bit of it. Not for every grievance we have — I wouldn't include his bad behavior or his offensive rhetoric — but some specific actions that I believe that have abused authority and rise to the level of impeachable offense, in my view, would go well beyond the current Ukraine scandal.”
