Maxine Waters, D-Calif., in November, argued on Monday that she must be removed from office because she is "very dangerous" and her actions and rhetoric are "absolutely irresponsible".
"Now that we have USA representatives threatening acts of violence in relation to the specifics of this specific case, it's mind-boggling to me", Eric Nelson, Chauvin's attorney, said to the judge.
"I hope we're going to get a verdict that will say guilty, guilty, guilty", Waters said.
"I'm going to fight with all of the people who stand for justice", Ms Waters said on Saturday.
Chauvin is accused of killing Floyd by pressing down on his neck during the attempted arrest in May 2020, and has been charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the case.
Waters was also asked what protesters should do if Chauvin is not found guilty of murder. We've got to stay on the street.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki spoke during a press briefing at the White House in Washington Monday
"If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd". She gave a short, but emotional speech about how the curfew is the government's way of silencing people and how the protesters should defy it (thus also breaking the law). "Their failure to do so I think is abhorrent, but I don't think it's prejudiced us with additional material that would prejudice this jury".
"As you know he met with the Floyd family past year and has been closely following the trials we've been talking about and is committed to undoing this long-standing systemic problem", Psaki stated.
Despite her impassioned address, Waters did not stay with the BLM gathering, choosing to leave before the curfew began. I came here from Washington just to be here to make sure that I let my voice be heard among all of those who have been putting so much time on the street.
"This goes back to what I've been saying from the beginning", Cahill continued, clearly perturbed.
Collins made the comments on "Fox & Friends" two days after Waters showed up at an anti-police brutality protest in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota and said demonstrators needed to "stay on the street" and demanded justice until police reform becomes a reality.
Republicans have pounced on Waters' comments and accused her of engaging in risky rhetoric.
