Kirsters Baish| The Conservative Watchdog group, Judicial Watch’s own Tom Fitton explained on Thursday that Democratic California Representative Maxine Waters could be in serious trouble after inciting “mob violence,” when she pushed a group of supporters to harass and attack members of the Trump administration if they see them in public places. Fitton believes that there should be a formal ethics investigation into the matter.
“When you’re out there … inciting mob violence against sitting Trump Cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House. 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,” Fitton explained while appearing on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
A letter was previously sent to the House Office of Congressional Ethics by the Watchdog group. The letter explained that a formal ethics 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” should be launched.
“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 yelled to a crowd last month.
Waters’ push to further harass Trump administration officials came after news broke that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a liberally-owned Virginia restaurant due to her political beliefs and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was heckled until she left a Mexican restaurant that she was dining at. The attacks were carried out by liberals who are angry about our country’s immigration policies.
Since making the comments, Waters has claimed that she did not call for violence. She also accused the President of lying about what she said. Tom Fitton, however, explained in his letter that her comments violated House rules having to do with representatives conducting themselves “in a manner that shall reflect credibly on the House.”
On Thursday, the Judicial Watch President stated that the California Democrat should be punished for her actions, possibly even expelled from the House.
“You can bet there is an increase in security costs for all Cabinet officials as a result of her rhetoric and comments,” he declared.
He also pushed American voters to encourage their respective representatives to reprimand her.
“It is so dangerous out there in my view for Trump supporters generally and Trump public officials that someone has to step in and rein them in and the House has an opportunity here,” he went on.
Needless to say, President Trump is not happy with Waters.
Crazy Maxine Waters, said by some to be one of the most corrupt people in politics, is rapidly becoming, together with Nancy Pelosi, the FACE of the Democrat Party. Her ranting and raving, even referring to herself as a wounded animal, will make people flee the Democrats!

“Her ranting and raving, even referring to herself as a wounded animal, will make people flee the Democrats!” he posted on Twitter on Tuesday.
Liberal America should really do some research before bashing the Trump administration for our country’s border patrol policies anyway. The policy that liberals are so angry about, which temporarily separates illegal immigrant minors from their families at the border, was put into place during George W. Bush’s presidency, and remained in place during the entirety of Obama’s presidency. President Trump was the first one to actually do something to bring an end to the practice.
This past Sunday, Maxine Waters seemed to be surprised when told that other Democrats were unhappy with her actions.
“One of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis, leadership … will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership and so what I have to do is not focus on them,” Waters stated on MSNBC.
