Documents have surfaced that show the same day she participated in a street rally to advocate resistance to law enforcement in the event of a not-guilty verdict for the officer accused of killing George Floyd, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) requested a police escort to the event.


Waters had told protesters that "we've got stay in the streets."

"We are looking for a guilty verdict," the congresswoman said. "If nothing does not happen (sic) then we have to not only stay in the streets but we have to fight for justice. I am very hopeful and I hope that we are going to get a verdict that is guilty, guilty, guilty and if we don't, we cannot go away."

Her remarks were deemed dangerous and inciting by many on the right, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
