Congresswoman Maxine Waters makes damning remarks in regard to the Derek Chauvin trial.

Rep. Maxine Waters on Saturday night called for protesters to “stay on the street” and “get more confrontational” if former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin is acquitted in the killing of George Floyd.

The judge in Derek Chauvin’s murder trial in the death of George Floyd criticized recent comments by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., saying her words could be grounds for the defense to appeal a verdict.

Speaking after the jury was sent out on Monday afternoon, Chauvin’s attorney Eric Nelson once again made a bid to have the case against his client thrown out on grounds that there was no way the jury could be untainted by the excessive publicity surrounding the case. ‘Now that we have US representatives threatening acts of violence in relation to this trial it’s frankly mind-blowing,’ Nelson said.

Taking it into consideration Judge Peter Cahill said: ‘I grant you Congresswoman Maxine Waters may have handed you grounds for appeal and the turning over of this trial.’ Judge Cahill denied Nelson’s move for a mistrial but he said: ‘I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case. They should respect a co-equal branch of government.’

Maxine Moore Waters is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for California’s 43rd congressional district since 1991.

George Perry Floyd Jr. was an African-American man killed during an arrest after a store clerk alleged he had passed a counterfeit $20 bill in Minneapolis. Derek Chauvin, one of four police officers who arrived on the scene, knelt on Floyd’s neck and back for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.
