House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for her remarks in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
Waters spoke to reporters at a protest in Brooklyn Center, encouraging people to “take to the streets”, if Derek Chauvin, the police officer that apprehended George Floyd, is not found guilty of murder.
McCarthy called her those remarks “dangerous rhetoric” and accused her of inciting violence.
In a tweet, he promised that if Speaker Pelosi didn’t act against this Waters and her violent rhetoric that he would.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict,” Waters said. “And we’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does happen, then we know that we’ve got to not only stay in the street, but we’ve got to fight for justice. But I am very hopeful, and I hope we are going to get a verdict that says ‘guilty, guilty, guilty.’ If we don’t, we cannot go away.”
