Every Democrat in the House of Representative voted against a resolution to censure Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. for saying protesters in Minnesota should "get more confrontational" if the Derek Chavin verdict didn't turn out the way they liked.

"They made it clear: Democrats are fine with Democrat politicians inciting violence and chaos," Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., tweeted.

The resolution was introduced Tuesday afternoon by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. McCarthy had said Monday he believed he could get up to 15 Democrats in the House of Representatives to vote to censure Waters.

"I know there are probably 10 to 15 who would love to vote" for censure, McCarthy said Monday on "Fox News Primetime." "It will all come down to the pressure of what Democrats will put on them to just try to vote to table it — not even to have the discussion."

Democrats currently have a six-seat majority in the House.

But if the Democrats hold together, McCarthy said, "then they are going to own what not only Maxine Waters has been saying but what Tlaib and the others about removing police officers and others. This has gone on too far and for too long​."Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has called for abolishing the police.

McCarthy told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to take action against Waters or the will, telling Fox News, "I believe it rises to that level because Maxine Waters believes there is value in violence."

"And now what she has said has even put doubt into a jury. You had a judge announce that it was wrong. I think this takes action especially when she has a pattern of this behavior​," he said.

Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill on Monday was critical of Waters comments after he had sent jurors in the Chauvin trial into deliberations, telling Chauvin's defense counsel Waters had given him a good cause for appeal.

"I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned​,” Cahill said. "This goes back to what I’ve been saying from the beginning. "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."
