Maxine Waters That did it! Since leaving office earlier this year, the former president, who works as an effective Republican leader, has been prosecuted for his role in inciting violence in the US Capitol. The riots led to Trump becoming the first president in American history to be impeached twice. But in many GOP circles that are still ready to defend him, Trump’s hands are certainly clean, even though Wat Wat is not there yet. Or so they claim. Waters, a 16-year-old Democratic congressman from California, sustained a wave of conservative outrage when he urged protesters this month to “confront more” if a Minneapolis jury acquits former police officer Derek Shavin of Floyd Floyd’s murder. Almost immediately after his comments began to make waves on the right-wing media, the former president, who was now at his private club in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, noticed: Trump began to ask rhetorically why he gets so much. Criticism լի floods of lawsuits when what Waters did, in his apparent estimation, was much worse, according to two people familiar with his private discussions. Naturally, the former president wanted it to become an obvious board of political, legal messages, against the steady accusations that he provoked a deadly riot, sources say. Trump’s lawyer, Essie Binal, arrived on Tuesday evening and declined to comment. Whether supporters of this argument have recently heard directly from Trump or not, the answer has really taken a toll on conservative և MAGA enlighteners. The dispute, however, did not leave an impression on everyone. “It’s a political argument, not a legal one,” said Ken White, a First Amendment lawyer and former federal attorney. “There is no legal doctrine to quote. “There is no doctrine, ‘You have done such a thing, that is why it is good,’ of which I am aware.” White went on to say that this was what a lawyer could use to attack Waters as a witness or plaintiff. “But the fact that one of the plaintiffs did such a thing, leaving aside whether it is in fact similar, is not a legal protection or anything can be an obstacle to moving the case forward,” he continued. “It simply came to our notice then. That is a shocking, popular argument. ” Earlier this month, during a protest rally in downtown Brooklyn, Minnesota, Waters said activists should stay on the streets. “We need to be more active, we need to be more confrontational, we need to make sure they know we mean business,” he said. The comments followed protests and riots in the city, with dozens of arrests on riot charges after police shot and killed 20-year-old Downt Wright, which police say was an “accidental” shooting. Judge Peter Cahill, who presided over the Chauvin trial, called the “ers” comments on “disrespect for the rule of law, the judiciary and our function” and even suggested that the remarks could be used as a basis for appeal. But trying to justify Trump’s behavior with Maxine Waters comments is not new. During Trump’s impeachment trial in February 2021, Republicans used Waters videos against the results of the 2016 Electoral College, promising to impeach Trump immediately after his election as proof that Trump’s rhetoric on January 6, before that, was outdated. It was a hat. (Republicans ignored the main difference that Waters’ recent comments did not cause a stir.) Recently, Trump Onathan Tarley, a professor of law at Washington University in Washington, D.C., who is close to Trumpworld, wrote an opinion for Fox News, predicting that Waters’ comments “may well be quoted in the January 6 riots on Capitol Hill.” In the process. ” Last week, Tucker Carlson, an adviser to Trump, the host of Fox News’ first show, asked if Maxine Waters was “guilty of greater motives than Donald Trump.” “Well, of course.” Carlson answered his own question. “It simply does not make sense. “People like Maxine Waters do not care if you point out that they are hypocrites.” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) also linked Waters’ comments to allegations that Trump instigated the Capitol riots on January 6. “President Trump used the words’ peaceful ‘when he spoke of his statements. “I have not heard Maxin say anything about peaceful protest.” Former New York mayor’s Trump’s lawyer Rudy Gi Ulyan tweeted that Waters “did what Donald J .. Trump did not do”, accusing Waters of “deliberately calling for violence against the jury if the crowd did not approve.” the verdict. ” ղեկավար Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarty also tried to use Waters’ comments. He recently introduced a resolution condemning the Democrats of California, which the House quickly ruled on party lines. And in an interview with Punchbowl News this week, he warned that Democrats would have to run in new constituencies next year to “explain why they are blaming Maxine Waters’ language.” In February, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) has sued the former president, claiming that Trump’s election rhetoric was a conspiracy to deprive Americans of their civil rights. In the lawsuits, Thompson’s lawyers claim that Trump and Ulian deliberately incited the far-right “Proud Boys” and “Guardians of the Oath” to attack the Capitol and prevent Congress from certifying President Biden’s election victory. In early April, the plaintiff, along with nine additional members of the Democratic House. And in an amended complaint, the California Democrat found out that he had to barricade his office on January 6. “The number of security personnel with whom he leaves and goes home,” the complaint reads.
