House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) says Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) “believes there is value in violence” and must be censured.
In an interview with Federalist Founder and Fox contributor Ben Domenach, McCarthy explained that if enough Democrats vote for censure, Waters will lose her position as the chairmanship of the House Financial Services Committee.
“I believe it rises to that level because Maxine Waters believes there’s value in violence,” McCarthy.
“This isn’t the first time she’s done something like this. Remember what she said in the past administration, for people to get in their faces, to challenge everyone. And now, what she has said has even put doubt into a jury. You had a judge announce that it was wrong.”
“I think this takes action, especially when she has a pattern of this behavior.”
McCarthy emphasized that “maybe then, she would learn once, and for all, there is no value in violence”.
McCarthy needs a simple majority to remove Waters from her seat and believes that “probably 10 to 15 (Democrats) who would love to vote that way”.
This comes on the heels of the Judge in the Chauvin trial stating that her comments were “abhorrent” and could even result in a mistrial on appeal.
