House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Rep. Maxine Waters over comments she made "inciting violence," vowing to take matters into his own hands if she doesn’t.
“Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past,” McCarthy said in a statement. “If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.”

Waters had called for riots in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, to continue in the wake of a police shooting that killed Daunte Wright. The officer had believed she was using her taser rather than her service weapon. The California Democrat’s comments also come days before a verdict will be reached in ex-police officer Derek Chauvin’s trial over the death of George Floyd. As Rebecca reported on Sunday, hours after Waters’ comments, the Minnesota National Guardsmen security team was fired at, injuring two guardsmen.
“We’re looking for a guilty verdict. We’re looking for a guilty verdict. And we’re looking to see if all of this [inaudible] that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd,” Waters said. “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, but I am very hopefully and I hope that we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away.”
If Chauvin is not convicted, Waters urged protesters to “stay on the street.”
“And we’ve got to get more active. [We’ve] got to get more confrontational,” she said. “[We’ve] got to make sure that they know we mean business.”
She is black and a dem, nothing will happen.
Not another strongly worded letter.
DEMOCRATS ARE LAW=LESS BECAUSE REPUBLICANS ARE BALL-LESS!
Enough divisive language from Maxine Waters. The best manner to deal with her is to remove any credibility
Hit her with a purse?
BINGO!!! Black Democrats get by with MURDER....witness the BLACK DEMOCRAT CAPITOL POLICE KILLER!
That UGLY skank has incited violence before. Has any action ever been taken? The evil rats 🐀 will just play the race card, and it will just fade away. I always hope for the best, but I am not very hopeful.
And so much bs. She out right asked for violence and pretty much so did kamala. She said it shouldn’t stop.
Yet another eGOP cowardly fail to action.
They house dems set the bar super low impeaching Trump, now they have to live with that and expel Waters but we all know that wont happen.
Sure, McCarthy is well known for his strong action, right.......?
What is he waiting for? The called-for insurrection to occur?
Citizen’s arrest Maxine Waters for inciting insurrection already.
It’s obvious that English is Mad Maxine’s second Language.
This will hopefully help the Appeal when this Political Show Trial ends with a Murder Conviction.
To be frank, with Morons like this in Congress it’s a wonder the Republic has lasted as long as it has.
Blah Blah Blah......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
What next? He threatens to no longer support Joe and Hunter?
He’s a phony.
Don’t forget an investigation. Nothing beats a Congressional investigation and a report.
Maxine Waters.....good old water head.
