Maxine Waters says Trump should be charged with ‘premeditated murder’

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California Tuesday said she thinks former President Donald Trump should be charged with “premeditated murder” over the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

“He absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder because of the lives that were lost for this invasion with his insurrection,” she told MSNBC. “For the President of the United States to sit and watch the invasion and the insurrection and not say a word because he knew he had absolutely initiated it – and as some of them said, ‘he invited us to come. We’re here at the invitation of the President of the United States.”

Five people, including a Capitol Police officer, died amid the chaos.

Waters voted with other House Democrats and 10 Republicans on Jan. 13 to impeach Trump for “inciting an insurrection.”

While arguing for Trump to be impeached last month, Waters, who was an outspoken critic during his entire presidency, said she believed he was capable of starting a “civil war.”

Republicans have also blamed Waters for her own heated rhetoric when she encouraged people to harass Trump administration officials in 2018 over its “zero tolerance” policy at the border… Via – Fox News
