New documents given to conservative news outlet Townhall reveal that Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters asked for a police escort to Minneapolis, where she then called for violent rioters to “stay on the streets” during their protest against police.
Waters traveled to Minnesota just ahead of the verdict in the George Floyd trial. Waters demanded a guilty verdict while meeting with protesters “or else.”
“We must stay in the streets., Waters told activists. “We want a guilty verdict.”
“If nothing happens then we must stay on the streets and we must fight for justice., she said. “I am hopeful we will get a guilty verdict but if this does not happen, we cannot go away.”

Chauvin isn’t charged with 1st degree murder. I’m doubtful the state will meet burden for 2nd/3rd degree murder.
Waters sets impossible standard and calls for “confrontation” if it isn’t met.

Conservatives are condemning Waters’ words as incitement to violence and calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action.
Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.

Due to the continued dangerous and toxic incitement to violence by Maxine Waters, she should be immediately removed from Congress. Her rhetoric is poisonous.

Maxine Waters violated state curfew to encourage violence in Minnesota.
Why hasn’t Speaker Pelosi condemned this rhetoric?
