Chauvin Protection Falsely Claims Congresswoman Threatened ‘Violence’ and Requests ‘Mistrial’ – Choose Refuses

US Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) denounces Republicans like MP Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and others she says mistakenly formulate her words and try to get her expelled. Waters, the Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, who has been in Congress since 1991, says she is not “intimidated” or “fearful” and will “do what needs to be done.”

Waters says the GOP is using them to raise funds for Republicans and to send a message to white supremacists, the KKK, and groups like the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys.

Greene says she’s trying to “drive out” Waters. Other members of the House’s GOP, from Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-GA), as well as some right-wing media outlets, have attacked Congressman Waters after she traveled to Minnesota to protest Black Lives Matter to speak about the police killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright.

“I am non-violent,” Chairman Waters told The Grio. “Republicans will jump on every word, line, and try to make it their message and their reason to denounce and deny us, to call us basically violent … every time they see the opportunity, a word to grab it, do it and you send a message to all the white supremacists, the KKK, the oath guards, the [Proud] Guys and all that like this is a time for [Republicans] Collect money on [Democrats] Move. “

“This is a time for [Republicans] to keep telling our voters this [Democrats] are the enemy and do this again and again, ”Waters described the GOP’s strategy. “But that doesn’t stop me from telling the truth to power. I am not intimidated. I am not afraid and do what must be done. “

Waters said to the BLM protesters on Saturday: “We have to stay on the streets and we have to be more active, we have to be more confrontational. We have to make sure they know we mean business. “

Congresswoman Waters explained what she meant: “I’m talking about facing the judicial system, facing the ongoing policing, I’m talking about speaking. I’m talking about legislation. I am talking about elected officials doing what needs to be done to control their budgets and pass laws. “

“I’m not worried they’ll keep skewing what I’m saying,” she added. “That’s how they are and that’s how they act. And I’m not going to be bullied by them. “

Greene isn’t the only right winger taking an opportunity.

“Other Republicans,” Forbes reports, “called for punishment but did not approve of deportation: Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.) Urged House Spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi to” take immediate action, “Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-Texas )) said to ‘sanction’ Waters, and Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.) called to ‘hold them accountable’. “

“If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t crack down on this dangerous rhetoric,” threatened Leader McCarthy, “I’ll file a lawsuit this week.”
