BREAKING: Chauvin trial judge blasts Maxine Waters, calls her comments "abhorrent" and "disrespectful to the rule of law"


Moments ago Chauvin’s trial judge Peter Cahill denied the defense’s request for a mistrial.

Cahill also blasted Rep. Maxine Waters for her comments in Minnesota this weekend to jurors, calling them “abhorrent” and “disrespectful to the rule of law and to the judicial branch and our function.”

The lawyer representing Chauvin said “And it is so pervasive that it is I just don’t know how this jury it can really be said to be that they are free from the taint of this and now that we have U.S. representatives, threatening acts of violence in relation to the specific case, it’s mind boggling to me, judge.”

Cahill responded “well, I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trail being overturned.”

“I’m aware that Congressman Waters was talking specifically about this trial, and about the unacceptability of anything less than a murder conviction, and talk about being confrontational,” Cahill later added. “But you can submit the press articles about that. 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.”
