WASHINGTON (Gray DC)-- Lawmakers are reacting to the first public impeachment hearings.

The House Intelligence Committee heard the testimonies yesterday of William Taylor, the acting ambassador to Ukraine and George Kent, the deputy assistant Secretary of State.

The next public hearing will be held Friday. The committee is scheduled to hear from former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

Republicans have been criticizing the impeachment proceedings thus far for being kept out of the public eye. A memo by Republican staff of the Intelligence Committee said the closed-door process allowed Chairman Schiff to direct "witnesses called by the Democrats to not answer Republican questions." Republicans also claimed Chairman Schiff "offered no due process protections for the President."

The Gray DC team caught up with lawmakers from across the country to hear their thoughts on the now-public proceedings.
