The increasingly radical Democrat Party protected Rep. Maxine Waters from censure when every member voted against the measure. Waters was seen over the weekend inciting a Far-Left mob, demanded they “get more confrontation” if the verdict in Derek Chauvin’s trial didn’t turn out how they’d like.
Republican Rep. Steve Scalise weighed in:
🚨 BREAKING → Every single House Democrat just voted to stand with Maxine Waters.
They made it clear: Democrats are fine with Democrat politicians inciting violence and chaos.

The resolution to censure Waters was introduced in the House on Tuesday. House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy believed he could get at least 10 to 15 Democrats on board with this measure, but not one voted against Waters.
“I know there are probably 10 to 15 who would love to vote for censure,” McCarthy said Monday.
Democrats currently only hold a razor-thin six seat majority in the House.
McCarthy continued, “But if the Democrats stick together, then they are putting their stamp of approval on not only what not only Maxine Waters has been saying but what Tlaib and the other “Squad” members have said about defunding police officers.”
“This has gone on too far and for too long.”
Earlier this week McCarthy warned Nancy Pelosi to take action against Waters or he would step in.
Trial judge in the Derek Chauvin case Peter Cahill slammed Waters’ comments after he had sent jurors into deliberations, telling Chauvin’s defense counsel Waters had given him a good cause for appeal.
“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” Cahill said.
“This goes back to what I’ve been saying from the beginning. “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function.”
