Kevin McCarthy threatens action against Maxine Waters for ‘dangerous rhetoric’

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is demanding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hold Rep. Maxine Waters accountable for inciting violence in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota after the fatal police shooting of Duante Wright.

On Saturday, Waters spoke to a group of demonstrators in Minnesota one week after Wright was killed.

“I’m going to fight with all of the people who stand for justice,” said Waters. “We’ve got to get justice in this country and we cannot allow these killings to continue.”

“We’ve got to stay on the street and we’ve got to get more active, we’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”

Since Wright’s death, violence has erupted in Brooklyn Center, Minn., where many protestors have been arrested for rioting and looting.

Waters added that she’s looking for a guilty verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis. “I hope we’re going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don’t, we cannot go away, we’ve got to get more confrontational,” Waters said.

McCarthy warned Pelosi that he will “bring action” against Waters this week if the lawmaker does not receive punishment for engaging in “dangerous rhetoric.”

“Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week,” McCarthy tweeted Sunday.

Additionally, Several more GOP lawmakers slammed Waters for her comments.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has called for Waters’ expulsion from Congress, saying she is a “danger to our society.”

“After traveling across state lines to incite riots, her orders recorded on video last night at the Brooklyn Center, directly led to more violence and a drive by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning,” Green continued.

“As a sitting United States Congresswoman @MaxineWaters threatened a jury demanding a guilty verdict and threatened violence if Chauvin is found not guilty. This is also an abuse of power. #ExpelMaxineWaters.”

Greene organized a petition to expel Waters from her position in Congress, saying that Waters has incited BLM/Antifa violence and riots for years.

“Speaker Pelosi,” Greene tweeted. “You impeached President Trump after you said he incited violence by saying ‘march peacefully’ to the Capitol. So I can expect a yes vote from you on my resolution to expel Maxine Waters for inciting violence, riots, and abusing power threatening a jury, right?”

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
