A censure vote was brought against Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters on Tuesday for the words she said during a protest for George Floyd and Daunte Wright.
Democrats blocked the measure by a vote of 216 to 210.
On Tuesday, conservative government watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a complaint with the House Office of Congressional Ethics against Waters.
“Ms. Waters took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, which includes the rights accorded to Officer Chauvin to a fair and impartial trial by a jury of his peers and to due process. Ms. Waters’ inflammatory comments that pressure the jury, while encouraging rioters already engaged in rampant destruction of property and attacks on police officers, to ‘get more confrontational’ are irresponsible and dangerous incitement by a Member of Congress,” Judicial Watch released in a statement.
