Both GOP lawmakers and members of the Conservative media have been unhappy with the current impeachment hearings. There have been numerous calls for the investigation to be shut down. Those calls include repeated attempt by the subject himself, Donald Trump. Some Democrats even feared that the President could shut down the government to stop the inquiry.
While the conservative show Infowars has lost most of its platforms, that doesn’t mean its hosts are no longer politically active. On Monday morning, host Owen Shroyer interrupted the impeachment hearings to demand that they be shut down.
The demonstration occurred while the House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) was speaking. Shroyer yelled, “Americans are sick of your impeachment scam! Trump is innocent!” The demonstrator was quickly removed from the building by police. The crowd, who were at first startled by the outburst, later laughed as Shroyer was escorted out of the room.
This was not Owen Shroyer’s first time in the public eye. In June of this year, he called for the lynching of the 44th President.
The Infowars host said of Barack Obama, “Folks, Obama was emailing Hillary Clinton on her illegal server under a secret name, that came out in emails. And he claimed he didn’t know she had it. Barack Obama is a treasonous…he belongs in jail. He belongs in Guantanamo Bay. I mean look, I’m not saying this should happen but Barack Obama, you know, find the tallest tree and a rope.”
