Greene said Waters incited violence when she spoke with protesters in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
McCarthy made it official late Monday, saying in a statement that he is introducing a censure resolution against Waters. Even so, the judge criticized the congresswoman for demanding a conviction and calling for protesters to get more "confrontational". In the state's closing argument, prosecutors said Chauvin kneeled on Floyd's neck and back for 9 minutes and 29 seconds because of his pride and his ego in the face of concerned bystanders.
GOP firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she would introduce a resolution to expel Waters from Congress over her comments.

"More active" and "more confrontational" to "let them know we mean business" is hardly the sort of soothing rhetoric you'd expect from a grown-up congresswoman.
McCarthy said that if Pelosi does not act, he intends to take action of his own against Waters for her remarks encouraging violence in Minnesota if a jury does not find former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty in his trial in the death of George Floyd. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business.
Cahill went on to say that he did not believe the jury would be prejudiced by Waters' comments because they had been instructed to not watch television.

Minneapolis, as much of the rest of the country, is on edge awaiting the verdict in the Chauvin trial which may come as early as Monday. She accused Biden of abusing his power by allowing his son Hunter Biden to serve on the board of a Ukranian energy company.
She became engulfed in a feud with Trump in 2018 after she called on her supporters to publicly confront and harass members of the Trump administration in response to the zero tolerance immigration policy that led to thousands of children being separated at the USA border. For all of the people making the "what about Republicans!" argument, remember this: You can only claim the moral high ground if you don't get down in the dirt yourself.
Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis - just as she has incited it in the past. He does not respect the other members.
"And it is so pervasive that it is I just don't know how this jury it can really be said to be that they are free from the taint of this", the lawyer representing Derek Chauvin said.More news: Czech Republic expels 18 Russian embassy staff
