Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said Sunday that she would introduce a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) from the House for inciting violence.
During a visit to Brooklyn Center, Minnesota Saturday night, Waters said that if Chauvin wasn’t found “guilty, guilty, guilty” people would need to “stay on the street” to demand “justice.”
“Rep. Waters is a danger to our society,” Greene said in a statement. “After traveling across state lines to incite riots, her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center, directly led to more violence and a drive by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning.”
“As a sitting United States Congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power,” Greene continued. “Rep. Maxine Waters must be expelled from Congress!”
Some might see Greene’s action as revenge for action Democrats took earlier this year to strip her of committee assignments for statements supporting the QAnon conspiracy theory, but Greene said the action was a “blessing in disguise” because serving on committees is a waste of time when Democrats bypass them to bring legislation directly to the House floor.
