Judicial Watch files ethics complaint against Maxine Waters for inciting violence against Trump officials

June 25, 2018

  Over the weekend Sarah Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant because the owner of the establishment is an avid anti-Trumper. It has also been reported that the owner of the Red Hen followed Sarah Sanders into another restaurant to continue the harassment.

  Maxine Waters appeared not only to condone the actions of the restaurant owner, but called on others to harass Trump officials whenever they get the chance.

“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 and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere.”

  That certainly can be seen as a call to violence and we have already seen the Democrats’ rhetoric lead to violence, and almost to death, on a softball field in Washington DC during a practice for a charity game.

  Judicial Watch saw this as a possible call for violence and today has filed an ethics complaint against Maxine Waters for her comments, here is more:

In today’s letter to the Office of Congressional Ethics co-chairman, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton writes:

In encouraging individuals to create “crowds” who will “push back” on President Trump’s Cabinet members at private business establishments and in seemingly trying to prevent these Cabinet officials from obtaining basic necessities without fear of assault and violence, Rep. Waters seems to be violation of House rules, specifically:

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. [House Rule 23, clause 1.]

We hereby request that the Office of Congressional Ethics conduct a preliminary investigation into whether Rep. Maxine Waters violated House Rules in encouraging attacks on Cabinet officials.

  With the possible exception of Nancy Pelosi (who did not mention Maxine Waters by name but said some comments were unacceptable and blamed it on Donald Trump) not one Democrat has condemned the words of Maxine Waters. I guess they are too busy calling for an ethics investigation into Sarah Sanders for using her official government Twitter account to “attack” the Red House restaurant…

    Only fools don’t learn the lesson Orwell taught more than 70 years ago. For those who did learn, Waters clearly thinks she is the “most equal of all”. She would be equal to the Squealer character.

      Yes, and I would add most politicians in Washington think they are more equal than all the rest of us.

      Yep, wise counsel Bunker. The more pressure coming down on them (the wicked liars, child traffickers, pervs, pedos, murders, etc.) the more ‘rapid’ they’ll get. Next we’ll see them sending out their Nazi Antifa, Mex gangs M13, & other paid protesters, bombers etc. (Soros/Clintons/Hussein connected). Hopefully the Trump Team can stop them before they unleash on the public.Heard it said that those who are ‘flapping their lips’ the most fear going down – look at all the power, control, allowed open perversions and $$$ they’ve had for years. The ‘den of snakes and vipers’ don’t want to give it up.

        No, they don’t want to give it up. They have had it too “good” over the years and they can see it beginning to be exposed and they will do whatever it takes to defend what they have.

      I agree Bunkerville, they are trying to get the Trump supporters to turn violent so they can say I told you so. It is sickening!

    The House ethics rules are not very credible. The members have been violating this “standard” with impunity. The leadership of both parties is gutless to reign in their members.

      I agree, this has been happening for quite awhile and they keep pushing the boundaries a little more every time. It is time to make an example out of somebody, but I don’t see it happening.

    A clear violation of 5 CFR 2635.702(a),” Mr Shaub tweeted.“the law that stipulates government employees cannot use public office for private gain”.

    He added: “It’s the same as if an ATF agent pulled out his badge when a restaurant tried to throw him/her out.” [Was the agent at the restaurant as part of an investigation?

    Mr Shaub also said the tweet violated the endorsements ban – arguing it was “an obvious corollary for discouraging patronage”.

    The left is grasping at straws. Next time leak the story to the press and use an anonymous source.

      Public Office for Private Gain…

      Would that have anything to do with Mad Maxine Waters $5 million dollar house…?

      And she didn’t “attack” the Red Hen, she just told what happened. How was this supposed to help he personally gain anything? You are right, they are grasping at straws.

    Maxine Waters may be responsible for enticing murder and attempt murder of two fire fighter in Long Beach CA some 40 hours after her hateful speech in Los Angeles CA. Check Fire Captain David Rosa.
