Rep. Maxine Waters May Have Given The Defense Something On Appeal In Chauvin Case
Congresswoman Maxine Waters may have handed ex-Minnesota Derek Chauvin's defense grounds for appeal according to the judge in the case. Chauvin is charged with the murder of George Floyd.
The judge said, “I grant that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned”.
The judge denied Chauvin's lawyer’s move for a mistrial but he said “I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case. They should respect a co-equal branch of government.”
Waters joined protesters over the weekend in Minnesota and told them, “I hope we get a verdict that says guilty, guilty, guilty. And if we don't, we cannot go away. We've got to stay on the street. We get more active, we've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
