Protesters SURROUNDS Adam Schiff, Chanting “Get Out Of Congress”

Heated exchanges gave way to physical scuffles at an event held at a Glendale library to honor Congress’ recognition of the Armenian Genocide. A group of Trump supporters showed up on Saturday night to protest one of the event’s speakers, Congressman Adam Schiff, who has played a central role in the impeachment hearings.

One man reportedly went to the hospital following a minor altercation with a protestor, although he did not sustain serious injuries.

The protest began once Schiff took the stage. Only a few minutes into his remarks, protestors began to silently hold up signs reading “Don’t Impeach.” Guests at the event asked them to lower their signs, which they refused to do.

Then, a woman’s voice broke through the quiet.

“Liar!” she yelled at Schiff.

At the Glendale Public Library on Saturday, Trump supporters wielded “DON’T IMPEACH” signs, heckling and booing Schiff as he began to talk about the years-long effort to get Congress to acknowledge the 1915 mass killings of more than 1.5 million Armenians as genocide.

But the protestors were undeterred. They started a “Liar!” chant to protest Schiff’s actions as the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, which oversaw the investigation into Trump’s dealings with Ukraine that form the heart of the impeachment inquiry.
