Rep. Maxine Waters of California Tuesday said she thinks former President Donald Trump should be charged with “premeditated murder” over the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
“He absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder because of the lives that were lost for this invasion with his insurrection,” she told MSNBC. “For the president of the United States to sit and watch the invasion and the insurrection and not say a word because he knew he had absolutely initiated it – and as some of them said, ‘he invited us to come. We’re here at the invitation of the President of the United States.'”
Five people, including a Capitol Police officer, died amid the chaos.
The only one murdered that day was Ashli Babbit who was shot dead in cold blood by a Capitol Hill police officer.

Republicans have also blamed Waters for her own heated rhetoric when she encouraged people to harass Trump administration officials in 2018 over its “zero tolerance” policy at the border.
You may remember this little beauty:
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” she told a California crowd. “And 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 they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents.”
