HOUSTON – U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-The Woodlands) represents the Eighth Congressional District in Southeast Texas and said his constituents are not focused on impeachment as a high priority.

Brady is a guest on this week's Houston Newsmakers with Khambrel Marshall and said there are several areas on Capitol Hill where progress is being made, such as plans to guard against surprise medical billings and mechanisms to guard against spikes in healthcare costs.

Brady said the impeachment inquiry takes away from potential progress and said the Democrats are wrong.

"If you've got great evidence and you're running a fair process why do it in secret?" Brady said. "Why deny due process both to the president and to Republicans. Seems to me this is such a grave issue that it ought to be fair and it ought to be bi-partisan."

Brady talks about much more in this week's program and in this Newsmakers EXTRA video.
