"I will give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned", responded Judge Peter Cahill. We're looking for a guilty verdict and we're looking to see if all of the talk that took place and has been taking place after they saw what happened to George Floyd, if nothing does not happen, then we know that we've got to not only stay in the street, but we've got to fight for justice. "Speaker Pelosi is ignoring Waters' behavior - that's why I am introducing a resolution to censure Rep. Waters for these unsafe comments".

"Beyond the articles that we're talking specifically about the facts of this case, a congresswoman's opinion really doesn't matter a whole lot", Cahill said.

Republicans have highlighted on Waters's comments as potentially leading to violence, but have also faced accusations of hypocrisy over their lack of action over Trump's frequent inflammatory comments or to members of their own party who have been accused of egging on violence.

When pressed by reporters on the judge's comments that her remarks could be grounds for appeal, she said, "Oh no, no, they didn't", CNN reported. "We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business".

"I wish elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function", he added.

Ms Waters remarks came amid a backdrop of renewed protests across the U.S. over a series of police shootings with unrest reported in Oakland, California and Chicago. I myself think we should take our lead from the George Floyd family. Waters told reporters Chauvin should be found guilty.

While Cahill denied Nelson's attempt to use Waters' comments as a reason to be granted a motion for mistrial, the judge did acknowledge the danger of her rhetoric and presence in Minnesota.

McCarthy could introduce a privileged resolution to censure Waters on the House floor, but it's not expected to pass if no Democrat supports the measure.

The Delhi government is constantly working to augment the number of oxygen beds and ICU facilities amid the crisis, he said. The Delhi government has an app that shows the number of occupied or vacant beds available at hospitals in realtime.

He tweeted: "I was shot because of this kind of unsafe rhetoric".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also defended Waters' comments, stating that Waters had "talked about confrontation in the manner of the Civil Rights movement", and she said, "No, I don't think she should apologize".

Critics noted that Republicans had failed to convict former President Donald Trump of inciting insurrection over the 6 January Capitol riots during his impeachment trial.

Waters has served in Congress since 1991 and is the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee.

This is not the first time she has been accused of risky rhetoric. And you push back on them.

Question: "Ms. Congresswoman. What happens if we do not get what you just told?"

"If you call it a riot", the Los Angeles Times quoted her as saying, "it sounds like it was just a bunch of insane people who went out and did bad things for no reason. So I call it a rebellion".
