Asked about the Chauvin murder trial, Rep. Maxine Waters told rally attendees and reporters that if the Chauvin isn’t found guilty, “We’ve got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is preparing to introduce a resolution calling for the expulsion of Waters from the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Very soon I’ll be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence on innocent American people. Rep Waters is a danger to our society,” wrote Greene. “After traveling across state lines to incite riots, her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center, directly led to move violence and a drive by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning.”

“As a sitting United States Congresswoman Maxine Waters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict,” wrote Greene, “and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power.”
Rep. Greene was not the only Republican to take a swipe at Waters’ comments.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) demanded on Sunday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) take action against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) over remarks that Waters made over the weekend, otherwise he will be forced to take action.
“Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past,” McCarthy said in a statement. “If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.”
“Telling rioters who have burned buildings, looted stores, and assaulted journalists to get ‘more confrontational’ is incredibly irresponsible. Every House Democrat should condemn Maxine Waters’ call for violence,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Mike Berg told Fox News.
“The Radical Left don’t care if your towns are burning, if there’s violence in your streets, or if the police are too defunded to defend their communities. As long as the Left appeases their anti-America base, their job is done,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) wrote on Twitter.
“Why is a sitting member of Congress encouraging protesters to get ‘confrontational?’” Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) wrote on Twitter.
