Loudmouth Maxine Waters, a United States Congresswoman who requested armed police security for her visit to Minneapolis where she whipped up the already hostile crowd of anti-law enforcement BLM protesters into a frenzy over the upcoming verdict of the former Minneapolis Police Officer Derick Chauvin. Rep. Waters may have thrown the Chauvin case.
In the video below, Waters can be seen telling the BLM and Antifa protesters to become “confrontational,” and not to accept anything less than a murder conviction for Chauvin:

Derick Chauvin’s Defense Attorney addressed Water’s comments during the final moments of the trial today, making an official complaint in court about her conduct over the weekend. Mr. Nelson reminded the court that the jury in the Derick Chauvin case was not sequestered, and it was highly likely that they saw Waters’ threatening and inciting comments in the media. Mr. Nelson said that Congresswoman Waters has essentially threatened the jury with her inflammatory remarks.
Judge Cahill stated that Waters’s violent rhetoric may have given the defense basis to overturn the entire trial on appeal.

In the video below, Judge Cahill can be seen blasting the irresponsible flamethrowing congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters, calling her statements “abhorrent,” adding that she may have given the defense the basis to overturn the entire trial on appeal.
“I’m aware of the media reports. I’m aware that Congresswoman Waters was talking specifically about this trial and about the unacceptability of anything less than a murder conviction, and talked about being confrontational” he said, added, “This goes back to what I’ve been saying since the beginning, I wish the elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function. I think if they want to give their opinions, they should do so in a respectful, and in a manner that is consistent with their oath to the Constitution–to respect the coequal branch of government.” Judge Cahill continued, “Their failure to do so is abhorrent,” adding that he has ordered the jury not to watch the news and he “trusts they have been following those instructions.”

Judge Cahill denied the motion for a mistrial but remained the court that Waters’s comments may have given the defense a reason to have a conviction overturned on appeal.
BREAKING: the judge in the Chauvin case – while discussing a motion for mistrial – said that Maxine Waters' comments about the Chauvin case may give the defense something on appeal to overturn a conviction. It's abhorrent, but not prejudicial, however. Motion denied.
