Blatant hypocrisy flourishes among the Democratic Party elites, and they never really had to care about getting caught because they have an entire sympathetic mainstream news media that stopped reporting news a long time ago that runs interference for them.
Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) recently traveled to Hennepin County, Minnesota and told protesters that if the jury on the form Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s murder trial didn’t come back with the verdict in her words, “Guilty, guilty, guilty” they needed to stay out in the streets and “get more confrontational.”
There are now documents that show the California Democrat asked for police protection during her trip. The travel logs that were published by Townhall show Waters asked for protection from US Capitol Police for her trip from the DC swamp to Brooklyn Center, describing the trip as a “moderate” risk factor.
So the woman who constantly trashes police as if all cops are bad and wants to defund the police asked for police protection. So it’s only you and me who won’t get police protection, but Waters and the other political elites will as blatant hypocrisy continues to flourish.
Waters told a crowd of protesters on Saturday that she will accept no other option than a “guilty, guilty, guilty” verdict for Chauvin, who had been charged with third-degree murder, second-degree murder, and manslaughter. Chauvin pleaded not guilty to all charges. The jury convicted Chauvin on all three charges Tuesday afternoon.
“We’re looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, 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,” Waters said.
Waters’ inciting rhetoric was criticized by presiding Judge Peter Cahill who advised Chauvin’s defense attorney after declining to declare a mistrial claiming her comments could have prejudiced the jury.
“I’m aware of the media reports. I’m aware that Congresswoman Waters was talking specifically about this trial, and about the unacceptability of anything less than a murder conviction, talked about being confrontational,” the judge said. “But you can submit the press articles about that. 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.”
Cahill also asked that elected officials to stop commenting on the pending case.
“I think if they want to give their opinions, they should do so in a respectful, and in a manner that is respectful to the Constitution, to respect the co-equal branch of government. Their failure to do so I think is abhorrent, but I don’t think it has prejudiced this, with additional material that would prejudice this jury.”
Maxine Waters and a majority of members of her party gave up respecting our Constitution a long time ago. Just listen to their words and watch their actions. They only invoke it when a clause here or there is useful in their purpose to destroy it.
After being pressed on Cahill’s statement about her comments potentially being grounds for an appeal, Waters said, “Oh no, no they didn’t.”
Republicans also criticized Waters for her interfering in the trial.
Greene filed the resolution after pressing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to expel Waters on Sunday, accusing the California congresswoman of being a “criminal” for inciting violence with her comments after she crossed state lines to join Black Lives Matter protesters in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota for the accidental fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.
On Tuesday, New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea had some words for Waters over her comments.
“I think it’s incredibly reckless. I even have stronger feelings but I’ll keep them to myself,” Commissioner Shea said.
