GOP Rep Cawthorn Calls For Maxine Waters To Be ‘Expelled’ From Congress

Over the weekend, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was accused of inciting violence after she was caught on camera telling protesters in Minneapolis to “get more confrontational.”

Now, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) is speaking out to say that Waters should be expelled from Congress for inciting violence in Minneapolis during the trial of Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.

Waters’ Controversial Comments

“We’re looking for a guilty verdict,” Waters said in the clip, referring to the trial of Derek Chauvin. 

“And 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,” she added.

“But I am very hopeful, and I hope we are going to get a verdict that says ‘guilty, guilty, guilty.’ If we don’t, we cannot go away,” Waters concluded.

Cawthorn Fires Back

Cawthorn responded in a Fox News appearance by saying that he supports Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has announced plans to introduce legislation to expel Waters for the comments that she made.

“You know, I actually got married two weeks ago, very excited about that,” he said. “But that’s the reason I got involved in politics so young.”

“My new wife and I don’t want to raise a family in a country that has political leaders who are so divided to where they are literally encouraging people to go out and cause more violence, burn down more buildings,” Cawthorn explained. “And you know what, Maria, just two hours after Maxine Waters said this statement, there was a drive-by shooting of our National Guard in those cities.”

‘It’s A Very Sad State Of Affairs’

“It’s a very sad state of affairs,” he added. “And I do support our leadership ability and Marjorie Taylor Greene’s ability to try and expel these people out of Congress.”

‘Because you know, we were — the Democrats tried to expel Republican members of Congress who were simply calling for election integrity,” Cawthorn concluded. “Well, right here, point in case, we have a videotaped pointing to an example of a Democratic congresswoman literally calling for violence. She has to be expelled.”
