Maxine Was Warned And Said She Didn’t Have To Listen, Learned She’s Not Above The Law


Tom Fitton, who is the head of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, confirmed yesterday that Democratic congresswoman from California, Maxine Waters, is inciting and promoting “mob violence” with her repeated calls for protesters to confront Trump officials in public. At the same time, he urged Congress to begin a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill.

Fitton said, “When you’re out there, inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told “Fox & Friends.” “And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence.”

Fox News reported: “The head of a conservative watchdog group said Thursday that Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is inciting “mob violence” with her call for protesters to confront Trump officials in public, as he urged a formal ethics investigation on Capitol Hill.

“When you’re out there … inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told “Fox & Friends.” “And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence.”

Judicial Watch earlier sent a letter to the House Office of Congressional Ethics calling for an investigation into whether the California Democrat violated ethics rules with remarks she made in Los Angeles telling supporters to “push back” on Trump officials seen in public. “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 that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere,” Waters said last month.

Those comments came after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Security Kirstjen Nielsen were pressured to leave restaurants amid the controversy over the administration’s immigration enforcement policies.

Waters has since said she was not calling for violence and accused President Trump of lying about her comments.

But Fitton, in his letter, wrote that her remarks were in violation of House rules requiring representatives to conduct themselves “in a manner that shall reflect credibly on the House.”

Fitton said Thursday that Waters should be reprimanded or even expelled from the House over her remarks. “You can bet there is an increase in security costs for all Cabinet officials as a result of her rhetoric and comments,” he said.
