Waters Faces Possible Secret Service Probe
The House Office of Congressional Ethics is processing a letter it received from the watchdog group Judicial Watch, asking for an investigation of the inflammatory statements made against Trump officials by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.)

The issue at question is whether she violated House ethics rules "by encouraging violence against members of the Trump administration." (wnd.com)

Waters told supporters Saturday at an outdoor rally in Los Angeles: “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 that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere.”

Her rant, to a handful of cheering fans, included her now-familiar chorus about impeachment and her claim that President Trump has “disrespected all of us.”

She claimed God is on her side and told her followers to “show up” wherever someone from the Trump administration appears and get them “booed out of restaurants,” vowing they would get “no sleep.”

“Rep. Maxine Waters incited violence and assault against members of President Trump’s Cabinet. It is urgent that the House ethics quickly act to hold her accountable for this dangerous incitement,” said Judicial Watch's Tom Fitton.

Fitton cites the requirement for decorum, found in House Rule 23, clause 1, stating that all members "shall conduct himself at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditability on the House."
