Scuffles Break Out as Trump Supporters Disrupt Schiff Town Hall on Armenian Genocide

Scuffles broke out at an Adam Schiff town hall meeting in Glendale, California, on Saturday, December 14, after supporters of President Donald Trump caused a disruption. The meeting was being held to mark the recognition of the Armenian Genocide.

As Schiff began speaking, Trump supporters held up signs saying “Don’t impeach” and began calling him a liar and accusing him of treason.

As the heckling continued, scuffles broke out among the crowd. The Los Angeles Times reported that three Glendale police officers were at the scene to quell the disturbance, and no injuries were reported.

The event was organized by the Armenian National Committee of America to thank the US House of Representatives for passing a resolution to recognize the Armenian Genocide in October, and to celebrate the Senate’s recognition on Thursday, December 12.
