Breaking: McCarthy Moves To Censure Waters For Inciting ‘Violence,’ Could Cost Waters Chairmanship

DM

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced on Monday that he will move to censure Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) for allegedly inciting violence with remarks that she made over the weekend. “This weekend in Minnesota, Maxine Waters broke the law by violating curfew and then incited violence. Increased unrest has already led to violence against law enforcement and her comments intentionally poured fuel on the fire,” McCarthy said in a statement. “We’ve heard this type of violent rhetoric from Waters before, and the United States Congress must clearly and without reservation reprimand this behavior before more people get hurt. But Speaker Pelosi is ignoring Waters’ behavior. That’s why I am introducing a resolution to censure Rep. Waters for these dangerous comments, and I hope that all my colleagues — both Republican and Democrat — will stand up for peace on America’s streets.” According to House Democrat Caucus rules, if Waters is censured then she would be stripped of her position as chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.
