Mad Maxine: Charge Trump With Premeditated Murder, Give Him Life Imprisonment!

Maxine Waters calls for charging Trump with premeditated murder

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters says she hopes former President Donald Trump rots in prison after being jailed for “premeditated murder.”

The anti-Trump Congresswoman appeared on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” on Tuesday to falsley push the claim that Trump incited the deadly riots on Capitol Hill on January 6.

“What’s so interesting about all of this is they tried to make themselves the victim when indeed they are following the president of the United States of America who had advance planning about the invasion that took place in our Capitol. Even there’s information that some of the planning came out of individuals working in this campaign. As a matter of fact, he absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder because of the lives that were lost with this invasion, with this insurrection,” Waters said.

She added, “So yes, we are threatened, but we can’t back up. We’ve got to fight as hard as we can to see to it that there’s some justice. For the president of the United States to sit and watch the invasion and the insurrection and not say a word because he knew that 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. When he rallied, he said go to the Capitol, fight hard. This is take back your country. So if that’s not inciting the kind of violence that we witnessed, I don’t know what is.”
