Republicans worked relentlessly in a juvenile attempt to interrupt the House Judiciary impeachment hearings. Committee chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) had trouble maintaining control. The GOP plan apparently is to disrupt the hearings rather than present a cogent case defending Donald Trump.
Then, a demonstrator sitting in the public seating stood up and started shouting that the chair and the Democrats had just been attempting to get Trump out of office. He claimed that the only reason the Dems were moving ahead with the impeachment hearings was to alter the results of the 2016 presidential campaign to favor their candidate Secretary Hillary Clinton.
Social media caught it immediately:
‘Somebody just ripped into Nadler and the Dems.’

Fox News’ Chad Pergram tweeted:
‘USCP remove 1st demonstrator from any of the impeachment hearings. Was very loud. Yelling that Nadler just wants to remove Trump’
The Trump-positive demonstrator interrupted the hearings just minutes into the action. He began shouting at Nadler claiming that the New York representative had committed treason. Of course, treason can only be charged when America is in a declared war, and the act of treason applies to that war.
The protestor shouted:
‘Americans are sick of your impeachment sham, they’re sick of the Democrat treason.’
The congressional police immediately arrived to escort the protestor from the hearing room. People could hear the man’s shouting grow dimmer as he was led away. After he was gone, Nadler, who had been interrupted reminded those in the public seating that they were there simply to “observe:”
‘The audience is here to observe, but not to demonstrate, not to indicate agreement or disagreement with any witness or with any member of the committee. The audience is here to observe only, and we will maintain decorum in the hearing room.’
The demonstrator filmed his attempt to interrupt the impeachment hearing. He was apparently a host on Infowars, which is a conservative, conspiracy-themed site.
Of all the superior attorneys in Washington, D.C., why did the Democrats select Barry Berke? He appeared more like a performer than a man arguing an historic case. His facts were accurate, but his presentation hit a false note.
Fortunately, the second counsel for the Democrats was Daniel Goldman, who argued effectively last week and on Monday.
The GOP selected for their counsel Stephen Castor
