House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is inciting violence.
In a tweet on Sunday, McCarthy warned if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) does not act against “this dangerous rhetoric,” then he will.
Maxine Waters is inciting violence in Minneapolis — just as she has incited it in the past. If Speaker Pelosi doesn’t act against this dangerous rhetoric, I will bring action this week.

This came as Waters is taking heat for telling BLM protesters to be “more confrontational” if Derek Chauvin is acquitted.
McCarthy is pledging to take action against Waters as early as this week.
