Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a sitting member of Congress, took to the streets in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, where she called on riots to continue. She did so in the dead of the night, knowingly breaking curfew and encouraging others to do the same. …
“I know this, we’ve got to stay in the streets,” Rep. Waters said as she took to the streets. “We are looking for a guilty verdict.”
Should they not get the verdict they are looking for, Waters insisted people double down on their efforts. “If nothing does not happen then we have to not only stay in the streets but we have to fight for justice,” the congresswoman said. “I am very hopeful and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that is guilty, guilty, guilty and if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
Rep. Waters had also said that people have “got to stay on the street and get more active, more confrontational. They’ve got to know that we mean business.“
Isn’t that a call for insurrection?
.@RepMaxineWaters told BLM terrorists to "stay on the streets" and "get more confrontational."
BLM terrorists took her orders and took action.
She should be expelled from Congress. https://t.co/vJF9etntnk

Judge in Derek Chauvin Case Calls Maxine Waters’s Comments ‘Disrespectful to the Rule of Law … Abhorrent’. By Joel Pollack.
Judge Peter Cahill … was responding to a motion by Chauvin’s defense lawyer, Eric Nelson, to declare a mistrial after closing arguments because of Waters’s comments. He denied the motion, but agreed that Waters’s remarks were so egregious that they created grounds for possible appeal if Chauvin is convicted of murder or manslaughter.
Mob Rule In Minnesota. By John Hinderaker.
Downtown Minneapolis resembles a fortress, only with fewer people. Both Scott and I have questioned whether Chauvin can possibly get a fair trial in the current atmosphere. Jurors cannot fail to understand the consequences of a “not guilty” verdict.
It has been reported that Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman sold his Minneapolis home at a loss and moved out of the city after “protesters” besieged his house, and his office received “millions of e-mails and thousands of phone calls” about the George Floyd case. I have it on good authority that he is not the only public official who has sold his house and moved out of Minneapolis for reasons of personal safety.
Eric Nelson has been the sole in-court lawyer defending Chauvin for the last three weeks. When America’s biggest and best law firms lined up to represent Islamic terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, for free, they were applauded with the pious reflection that everyone deserves a legal defense. That principle does not apply, however, to police officers. …
One can only imagine the volume of threats and abuse that the “right” Eric Nelson has received and will continue to receive, especially if the jury fails to do the mob’s bidding. While I have been critical of some aspects of his handling of Chauvin’s defense, I take my hat off to him for his courage.
Jen Psaki Refuses to Condemn Maxine Waters’ Jury-Tampering Threats. By Tyler O’Neil.
Speaking on behalf of President Joe Biden, Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-Calif.) remarks demanding a guilty verdict in the Derek Chauvin case and calling for “more confrontational” protests if Chauvin is not found guilty. …
While Biden has consistently urged Americans to avoid violence, he has not singled out antifa for condemnation in the same way as he has condemned right-wing groups like the Proud Boys. He has also not spoken out against the riots and looting amid the protests over the death of George Floyd, instead praising “peaceful protests.”
