Rep. Maxine Waters takes Heat Over Race-baiting Comments

MN, Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill criticized Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for her race-baiting comments over the weekend regarding the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who’s charged with the murder of George Floyd.

“I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function,” Cahill said after the jury had been sequestered to begin deliberations on Monday.

The congresswoman, who has long been a lightning rod for criticism from the right, was already facing a torrent of Republican ire for her comments over the weekend urging protesters in Minnesota to “get more confrontational” if Chauvin is not convicted, several GOP lawmakers calling for the end of “democrat immunity” and Waters’ expulsion from Congress.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Monday that he will introduce a resolution to censure Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for saying “we’ve got to get more confrontational” and “we’ve got to stay on the street” to protest police brutality against Black Americans.

McCarthy accused Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, of inciting violence during the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who’s charged with the murder of George Floyd and whose actions set off nationwide protests against racial injustice last summer.

  7. Officer who shot and killed Capitol rioter Ashli Babbitt won’t be charged, DOJ says. Who was the officer ? Was she a threat to him that he had to use “Deadly Force”

  8. She’s a troublemaker, talking about in agitator.

    Police use unnecessary “deadly force” all the time in this country, often in circumstances where people are not actively storming one of the specific buildings the police are meant to protect. In fact, much more frequently there are circumstances when the “perp” is running away from them, or is in the process of freezing, or is peacefully protesting.

    This is quite the pickle you must find yourself in.

  10. I will tell you this the way police do their business will change immediately. They definitely will be on their tippy toes.

  11. A race-hustler

  12. And thank you Maxine you dumb twat.
    Now the defense appeals and the verdict is overturned because a sitting member of congress threatened violence is anything other than a guilty verdict was issued.
    Are you fucking kidding me?
