Marjorie Taylor Greene shared her plans to remove MAxine Waters from Congress, according to The Hill.
Greene announced that she will introduce “a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence.”
Violent protests erupted last week after Daunte Wright was shot and killed by a police officer.
Waters spoke with protesters over the weekend seemingly to encourage them into taking more actions and becoming “more confrontational.”
Waters said she is “going to fight with all of the people who stand for justice,” adding, “We’ve got to get justice in this country, and we cannot allow these killings to continue.”
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, charged for murder in the George Floyd case is currently on trial.
It was reported that the death of Geroge Floyd and the death of Daunte Wright happened at two different locations only miles apart.
Waters said if Chauvin is not found guilty, “we’ve got to stay on the street, and we’ve got to get more active.”
“We’ve got to get more confrontational.”
“We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.”
Why is Maxine Waters traveling to a different state trying to incite a riot? What good can come from this? https://t.co/nXzV0trmN3

Greene suggests that waters statements encouraged “more violence and a drive by shooting on National Guardsmen in Minnesota early this morning.”
From The Hill:
Two guardsman were injured early Sunday morning when a gunman fired at a Minnesota National Guard and Minneapolis Police Department neighborhood security team, the Minnesota National Guard said.
However, National Guard officials did not provide any immediate evidence of who fired at the law enforcement officials or a connection to Waters’s comments.
The Hill has reached out to Waters’s office for comment.
Greene previously announced she would file articles of impeachment against President Biden just one day after he was sworn into office. She said that the articles accused Biden of abusing his power while serving as vice president by allowing his son Hunter Biden to serve on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
The president has repeatedly denied that his son’s position tinged policymaking during the Obama administration. An investigation by Senate Republicans also found no wrongdoing from either Biden.
Later in January, Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.) announced he would be introducing a resolution to expel Greene from Congress.
Neither resolution went anywhere, but the House voted in February to strip Greene of her committee assignments after she previously endorsed violence against Democratic politicians, the QAnon conspiracy theory and other racist dogma.
