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.
This came as Waters is taking heat for telling BLM protesters to be “more confrontational” if Derek Chauvin is acquitted.
