Video earlier today showed President Joe Biden sitting with Vice President Kamala Harris as he took a question from reporters asking about the Derek Chauvin trial.
Biden referenced the Floyd family, saying that they are calling for peace. He added that he was “praying” for the “right verdict, which is overwhelming.”
Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich weighed on in Biden’s words as well as the inciting rhetoric of U.S. House Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) in Brooklyn Center, MN over the weekend.
Gingrich explained, “The Rule of Law is being replaced by the Rule of Politicians as President Biden says he is praying for a guilty verdict in Minnesota and Congresswoman Waters says she will only accept a guilty verdict for murder (which is not even the charge being tried).”
“This is very dangerous,” Gingrich insisted.

People could be seen gathering outside of the courthouse and chanting, “if we don’t get it, shut it down” as well as “no justice, no peace.”
Chauvin has been found guilty on all three charges, second and third degree murder as well as manslaughter. It remains unclear if that will be enough to satisfy the groups that rioted after George Floyd’s death last year.
