The judge overseeing former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial in the death of George Floyd said Monday that Rep. Maxine Waters’ comments could be grounds for appealing a verdict in the trial.

“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” Judge Peter Cahill told defense attorney Eric Nelson on Monday.Waters on Saturday night had called for protesters to “stay on the street” and “get more confrontational” if Chauvin is acquitted in Floyd’s killing, comments immediately seized on by Republicans who claimed that Waters was inciting violence.
