The controversy arose at Waters addressed protesters after police shot Daunte Wright in Minneapolis, Minnesota as the nation waited for Chauvin to complete.
Waters had said If Chauvin has not been found guilty, "we need to stay on the road and we need to be more active." We have to become more confrontational. We have to make sure they know we mean business. "
"We have to get justice in this country and we cannot allow these murders to continue," said Waters said back then.
McCarthy then accused Waters and House Democrats of promoting "violent rhetoric".
Spokesman Pelosi and every other House Democrat had the opportunity to condemn the violent rhetoric of our colleague Representative Waters.
Instead, they tolerated it.
And the house and our justice system are worse off because of it.
