Local pundits share differing viewpoints on Trump impeachment inquiry

Local political pundits are reacting to Speaker Nancy Pelosi's announcement Tuesday that the House of Representatives will begin an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Democratic Strategist Joe Zepecki says we need more information.

"We have a long ways to go here. Part of my message today is nobody should rush to judgment," said Zepecki.

Trump supporter Van Mobely belives an investigation into the president will find no wrong doing.

"President Trump is doing a great job. The democrats clearly did this because they want to obscure his effectiveness on the world scene and prevent him from doing a great job at the UN," said Mobely.

While an election is now slightly over a year away, Zepecki says waiting for voters to make the decision could be too late.

"If action needs to be taken and if this president needs to be held accountable and removed from office because he is putting us national security at risk, it has to happen quickly."
