Congressman says he is skeptical of impeachment hearings

The impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill are moving to the Judiciary Committee in the House this week.

Congressman Greg Pence, a Columbus Republican, says he has yet to see anything that indicates the president should be removed from office.

As a member of the House foreign affairs committee Pence said he has heard much of the evidence before it was presented in public testimony.

Pence  says there is a lot of work that could be getting done in the House but isn’t — including approving a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico, dealing with prescription drug prices and passing a military budget.

The Judiciary Committee’s first hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
