Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Files Resolution to Expel Maxine Waters from Congress

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene filed a resolution (H. Res. 327) to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress on Monday.

Greene introduced the resolution after Waters traveled across state lines to join Black Lives Matter protesters outside the police department in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Waters urged BLM protesters to “get more confrontational,” if Derek Chauvin is not found guilty.

“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,” Waters told the crowd of BLM protesters.

On Sunday, Greene announced she would soon introduce a resolution to expel Waters, and today, she did just that.

“I just went inside the Capitol to file my resolution to #ExpelMaxineWaters for her history of inciting violence and ordering Black Lives Matter terrorism against National Guardsmen in Minnesota,” Greene tweeted alongside a video taken on the Capitol steps just before she entered the building on Monday.

Press Release:

Today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene filed her resolution (H. Res. 327) to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her years of inciting violence, rioting, and a drive-by shooting against National Guardsmen in Minnesota.

The case against Democrat Maxine Waters inciting violence and terrorism is extensive and thorough:

  • In the wake of the Rodney King riots in May 1992, Representative Waters said “If you call it a riot, it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.”
  • On January 27, 2007, Representative Waters told an anti-Iraq war rally “My name is Maxine Waters and I am not afraid of George Bush. My name is Maxine Waters and I’m not intimidated by Dick Cheney. My name is Maxine Waters and I have to get rid of Rumsfeld.”
  • On October 20, 2017, Representative Waters told a crowd at an LGBTQ Youth Gala, “With this kind of inspiration, I will go and take Trump out tonight.”
  • On June 23, 2018, Representative Waters told a crowd “If you see anybody from [President Trump’s 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.”
  • On September 8, 2018, Representative Waters told a crowd of her supporters in Los Angeles: “I did not threaten [Trump] constituents and supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do that that time.”
  • On April 17, 2021, Representative Waters told violent protesters: “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.”
  • Representative Waters traveled across state lines, to promote and encourage riots that led to violence and community destruction, which is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison (18 U.S.C. 2101)
  • Representative Waters has threatened a jury if they do not find a guilty verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin.
  • Representative Waters has violated House Rule 23, Clause 1, which states that “A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall conduct himself at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.”

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene released the following statement:

“Democrat Maxine Waters stood in the streets of Minnesota while breaking curfew and inciting riots that led to gunshots being fired at National Guardsmen.

She ordered Black Lives Matter terrorists to ‘stay in the street’ and ‘get more confrontational.’

What’s more confrontational than burning cities for almost a year?

What’s more confrontational than thugs and criminals looting our businesses?

What’s more confrontational than killing innocent Americans like David Dorn?

This is nothing new from Maxine Waters. She has been inciting violence and terrorism for the last 29 years.

It’s time to EXPEL Maxine Waters!”
