Congresswoman Maxine Waters has demanded Trump be charged with “premeditated murder” for the Capitol riots.
When she knows impeachment will fail in the Senate, best go for some good old fashioned hyperbole to step up the unifying rhetoric.
Surely premeditated murder is a more heinous crime than the articles of impeachment portray? Why didn’t she push for this charge from the outset?
Waters infamously pushed back on the Trump administration in 2018 after then WH press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was booted out of a restaurant with this:
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
There is a touch of irony that the Democrats stripped Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene from any committees due to her previous questionable social media posts. Yet the party has never demanded that Maxine Waters lose the chair role of the Financial Services Committee due to her incitement?
