Locals React to First Day of Impeachment Hearing

Posted: Updated:

SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. - People on Delmarva had a variety of reactions to the impeachment hearing, some said they're looking forward to impeachment, others said it's a waste of time. 

The first day of President Trump's impeachment hearing was Wednesday morning at 10am. 

WBOC talked to Leah Clark from Georgetown who watched parts of the hearing. She said the government has given too much attention to the possibility of impeachment. 

"Forget it, let's just move on and do the next thing, solve the next problem," said Clark. 

But some people like Cathy Connors said she believes the president should be impeached so he doesn't have a second term. 

"He shouldn't have a second term, I hope he doesn't have a second term. I hope the American people are smart enough to realize it," said Connors. 

Shawn Joseph said he is staying at the beach. He said Trump's relations with Ukraine isn't a high enough crime to prosecute for impeachment. 

"I think the punishment, in this case, just doesn't fit the crime. I think it's too extreme for what actually went down," said Joseph. 

Rique Reynolds has lived in Georgetown for two decades. He said he hopes the outcome of the hearing will reveal President Trump's true colors. 

"So I just hope that everything comes out and is exposed for the whole country to see. So they'll see what type of president he actually is," said Reynolds. 
 
The second hearing will be on Friday at 10am. Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine will testify.

    A proposal in Delaware would outlaw homemade "ghost guns," which can't be traced because they don't have serial numbers or are fashioned from parts created with 3-D printers.

    A Democrat-led House committee voted to release the bill Wednesday after an hour long public hearing, although its chief sponsor, House Majority Leader Valerie Longhurst, said she plans to amend the bill after meeting Tuesday with representatives of the National Rifle Association.
