The Secret Service is investigating Rep. Maxine Waters after she urged people to harass and confront Trump administration officials and supporters in public, according to The American Mirror. The explosive report came from journalist Laura Loomer, who said she filed a complaint with the Secret Service against Waters.
Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch has also filed a complaint against Waters with the House Office of Congressional Ethics, saying her calls for violence against a sitting president is against the law. The group argues lawmakers should vote on whether to censure Waters, which could force her to resign. She is also under fire for praising the LA riots, which resulted in nearly a billion dollars worth of property damage.
On Monday, Loomer tweeted that after she filed her complaint, the Secret Service told her that it was “looking into” Waters chilling remarks.
I just filed a complaint against Rep. @MaxineWaters with the @SecretService. Although the Secret Service Officer couldn’t get into the details of the investigation, he did tell me that SS is looking into Maxine’s comments that incite violence against @realDonaldTrump & his staff.

As reported by Conservative Daily Post, Waters issued a dangerous call to action over the weekend, urging people to harass and inflict violence against officials who work for President Donald Trump. She said those who work for and support the president should not be welcomed or allowed in society.
Here’s part of what she said:
“If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants … who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep! No peace, no sleep!'”
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up 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.”
Following her chilling and disgusting comments, Judicial Watch filed a complaint on Monday against Waters for inciting violence against members of Trump’s cabinet.
In a letter to the House Ethics office, the watchdog group said Waters was encouraging people to attack and use violence against members of Trump’s administration and those who support him. The group said no member of Congress should be allowed to make such sickening comments, arguing that lawmakers should vote on whether she should be censured.
Her calls for violence also came as pro-Trump Florida Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi was spit on by liberals while being chased out of a movie theater over the weekend. Prior to that, a mob of deranged liberals swarmed the home of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen, putting her family at risk of being attacked, harassed, and confronted.
Many would agree Waters’ dangerous rhetoric should result in an investigation by the Secret Service. Lawmakers should also be forced to vote, on the record, about whether they believe any actions should be taken against Waters.
This dangerous rhetoric has resulted in Republicans and members of the Trump administration being targeted, attacked, and harassed.
Threatening violence against an elected official or member of the president’s administration is a felony, and Waters should be held accountable.
