A man interrupted Monday’s impeachment hearing moments after House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler gaveled it into session.
The man, identified as InfoWars host Owen Shroyer, was led out of the room immediately by Capitol police, shouting that Nadler and House Democrats were committing treason by conducting the constitutional process.
“Donald Trump is innocent,” he yelled as the hearing began, and Capitol police quickly apprehended him.
“We voted for Donald Trump,” Shroyer shouted as he was led away, “and they’re simply removing him because they don’t like him. We’re sick of you impeachment saga, we’re sick of Democrat treason.”

‘Rattled’ White House was blindsided by Bolton revelations: report
In an appearance on CNN's "New Day," on Monday morning, Axios reporter Jonathan Swan revealed that the Donald Trump's White House was "rattled" by revelations contained in former national security advisor John Bolton's upcoming book -- and that they appeared to be unaware of them until they read them in the New York Times.
Speaking with hosts Alisyn Camerota, and John Berman, Swan was asked how the White House was responding to the bombshell revelations that blow a huge hole in Trump's impeachment defense.
"The New York Times knew about the content of the Bolton book before you say the press shop at the White House did. What itself is the significance there?" host Berman asked.
Palestinian PM calls on world to boycott Trump peace plan
Palestinian prime minister Mohammed Shtayyeh on Monday urged international powers to boycott US President Donald Trump's "peace plan" which they see as biased towards Israel.
"This a plan to protect Trump from impeachment and protect (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu from prison. It is not a Middle East peace plan," Shtayyeh told a cabinet meeting.
"This plan gives Israel sovereignty over Palestinian territory," he said.
Trump is expected to unveil his "peace plan" for the Middle East after hosting Monday in Washington Netanyahu and his political rival Benny Gantz.
Frantic Trump tries to block Senate from calling Bolton after bombshell book blows up his Ukraine defense
President Donald Trump went to bed fretting about John Bolton, and he woke up worried about his former national security adviser.
Excerpts from Bolton's new book leaked Sunday, claiming that Trump told him that Ukraine aid was tied to an investigation of Joe Biden and his son -- putting new pressure on Republican senators to approve additional witness testimony in the impeachment trial.
"The Democrat controlled House never even asked John Bolton to testify," Trump tweeted Monday morning. "It is up to them, not up to the Senate!"
