Democrats Vote Against Resolution To Censure Maxine Waters Over Inciting Violence In Minnesota

Maxine Waters traveled to Minnesota over the weekend and poured gasoline on the fire of the Derek Chauvin trial.

Republicans advanced a resolution to censure her and the Democrats voted against it.

The Democrats tried to impeach Trump for far less than what Waters did.

Lawmakers voted along party lines 216-210, with no defections on either side, to table the resolution from Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) that would have issued the chamber’s harshest disapproval short of expulsion.

Republicans argued that Waters incited violence with her remarks at a protest over the weekend in Minneapolis, where tensions are spiking over the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who’s charged with the murder of George Floyd, and the recent police killing of Daunte Wright.

The resolution’s text cites comments on Monday from the judge in the Chauvin trial, who criticized the remarks from Waters and warned they could give the defense “something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned.”

At the same time, you’ve got PBS “journalist” Yamiche Alcindor defending what Maxine Waters did and insisting she did not incite violence.

What a joke. Maxine Waters gets away with everything she does simply because she’s a Democrat. Must be nice.
