“Americans are sick of your impeachment sham, they’re sick of the Democrat treason," the demonstrator yelled.  

The demonstrator, who filmed his protest, appeared to be a host on Infowars, a conservative and at times conspiracy-peddling site.

Shortly after he began, multiple police escorts showed up and shuttled him out of the hearing room as he continued yelling.

Nadler, whose opening statement the protester interrupted, stressed after the man was escorted out of the hearing room that the audience was meant to just "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," Nadler said. "The audience is here to observe only, and we will maintain decorum in the hearing room.”
