Marjorie Taylor Greene to introduce resolution to expel Maxine Waters from Congress

Waters was in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, over the weekend, joining protesters who have gathered there in the last week following the police shooting of Daunte Wright.

"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. "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 can not go away".

In response to comments made by Representative Maxine Waters of California Saturday night encouraging protestors to "get more confrontational" in Minneapolis, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene announced on Twitter her intention to introduce a resolution expelling Waters from Congress.

Asked about the Chauvin trial by reporters, Waters said that she was "hopeful" the cop would be convicted.

"If nothing does not happen, then we know, that we've got to not only stay in the street, but we've got to fight for justice", Waters continued. "Republicans will jump on any word, any line and try to make it fit their message and their cause for denouncing us and denying us, basically calling us violent ... any time they see an opportunity to seize on a word, so they do it and they send a message to all of the white supremacists, the KKK, the Oath Keepers, the [Proud] Boys and all of that, how this is a time for [Republicans] to raise money on [Democrats] backs".

"Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot?"

Waters also said that she didn't comply with curfews implemented by law enforcement. "Curfew means that I want you all to stop talking".

Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked Monday whether Waters should apologize for making the remarks. "But as he also always says, protests must be peaceful, that's what he continues to call for and what he continues to believe is the right way to approach responding". In a tweet Sunday, the Texas senator said Democrats are supporting far-left terror groups to tear apart the American society.
