California Rep. Maxine Waters is not having a good week. Just two days after critics accused Waters of committing a felony for inciting a riot, the liberal leader is back in the news.
Assault charges were filed in Washington, D.C. against Waters after the California Democrat allegedly assaulted a conservative reporter for asking questions about the violent comments.
Reporter Laura Loomer of Big League Politics wrote she'd reported assault charges to the Capitol police after "Ms. Waters assaulted me 3 times. She hit my hand to try to knock my phone out of my hand, and then she hit me in the face with her papers twice."
Video of the confrontation quickly went viral.
At one point in the footage, Waters seems to shove Loomer's camera and demand she "be civil" with her questions. Eventually, Waters runs away and hides behind her staff.
