Marjorie Taylor Greeene tries to expel Maxine Waters from Congress for cracking down on police brutality
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Will pass a resolution to expel Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) From Congress.their continuing incitement to violence ”after Waters spoke to protesters after Daunte Wright was shot by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Wright’s murder comes as Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is on trial and charged with murder on the death of George Floyd, sparking global protests last spring and summer.
Greene claimed Waters’ comments “This morning resulted in more violence and a ride in shooting at National Guardsmen in Minnesota.”
Although the National Guard said in a press release that a The Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis Police Team were shot at in a drive-by shooting yesterday morning. There is no evidence that Water’s remarks contributed in any way to the shooting. Minneapolis was already nervous as the nation waited for Chauvin’s trial to complete.
Waters had said If Chauvin is not found guilty, “We need to stay on the streets and we need to be more active. We have to become more confrontational. We have to make sure they know we mean business. “
“We have to get justice in this country and we cannot allow these murders to continue,” said Waters.
The resolution is unlikely to go anywhere as the House of Representatives is under democratic control. Additionally, Greene already has a history of alienation from her peers.
In January, just a day after President Joe Biden took office, Greene instituted impeachment proceedings against him alleging that he had been an abuse of power while serving as Vice President Allows his son Hunter Biden to serve on the board of directors of a Ukrainian energy company. An investigation did not reveal any evidence of misconduct.
In February, the House voted to remove Greene from her committee duties as her statements became controversial on social media, including calls for executions of top Democrats.
