Chauvin Judge Says Maxine Waters's Comments Could Lead to Overturning of Trial on Appeal; Waters Demanded Special Police Motorcade And Escort Before Calling For Violence At Anti-Police Event; Pelosi: Waters Should Not Apologize, and related stories

Chauvin judge says Maxine Waters's comments could lead to overturning of trial on appeal:
Judge Peter Cahill said comments by Rep. Maxine Waters over the weekend could lead to the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin being overturned on appeal.
After defense attorney Eric Nelson criticized "U.S. representatives [for] threatening acts of violence in relation to this specific case," Cahill said Waters' calls for protesters to get "more confrontational" if Chauvin is acquitted may have undermined the legitimacy of the entire trial.
"I'll give you that congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned," Cahill replied.
Prosecutors argued that Waters's specific comments were not necessarily a threat of violence.
"I don't know that this particular representative made a specified threat of violence. I don't know what the context of the statement is," prosecuting attorney Matthew Frank said, adding that defense attorneys could enter specific evidence of alleged threats from Waters into the record if they so chose. --->READ MORE HERE
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters Demanded Special Police Motorcade And Escort Before Calling For Violence At Anti-Police Event:
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters of California requested an armed police escort to an anti-police protest in a Minneapolis suburb this weekend, reported Townhall. While at the event, Waters called for riots if former police officer Derek Chauvin is not found guilty for the murder of George Floyd.
U.S. Capitol police reportedly put in the request for police to accompany Waters on her trip to Minnesota to rile up demonstrators and urge them to “get more confrontational.”
Waters, who plans to stay in Minnesota through when the jury delivers a verdict, also encouraged rioters to “stay on the street” and “get more active.”
“We’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business,” the representative from California said. --->READ MORE HERE
