As most people are probably aware by now, Maxine Waters called for organized harassment of members of President Trump’s Cabinet at a rally this afternoon. If not, you can view that at:
After watching this, you may be asking what laws were broken or what the illegality may be. To be blunt, under federal law, a riot is a public disturbance involving an act of violence by one or more persons assembled in a group of at least three people. Inciting a riot applies to a person who organizes, encourages, or participates in a riot. It can apply to one who urges or instigates others to riot.
According to 18 USCS § 2102 “to incite a riot”, or “to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot”, includes, but is not limited to, urging or instigating other persons to riot, but shall not be deemed to mean the mere oral or written (1) advocacy of ideas or (2) expression of belief, not involving advocacy of any act or acts of violence or assertion of the rightness of, or the right to commit, any such act or acts.”
Thus, would you like to submit a complaint against Maxine Waters for her illegal statements and actions today?
To do this, visit the website of the Office of Congressional Ethics and initiate the complaint at the website below.
At that site, you need to enter the following information:
First Name: Maxine
Last Name: Waters
Date of Alleged Conduct: 06-25-2018
Concise Statement of Facts: Today Ms. Waters called for acts of harassment against other public officials. A link to the news clip showing her actions may be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVyZxUDnbfs. The clip is presented on Fox Business.
The Law or Rule Violated: Per review of 18 USCS § 2102 “to incite a riot”, or “to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot”, includes, but is not limited to, urging or instigating other persons to riot, but shall not be deemed to mean the mere oral or written (1) advocacy of ideas or (2) expression of belief, not involving advocacy of any act or acts of violence or assertion of the rightness of, or the right to commit, any such act or acts.” Though harassment my not initially be considered to be a “riot”, the actions of harassers may easily escalate to involve bullying of the targets and disruption of surrounding parties who are not affiliated with the targeted individuals. Thus, such disruption becomes the potential for confrontation and violence. Additionally, the type of “bullying” being encouraged by Ms. Waters is one of verbal assault that is intended to inflict mental anguish and discord upon the targets recommended by Ms. Waters. Such incitement of other people to actively assault other people is a crime known as solicitation of violence. Based on this information, I fully expect the Committee on Congressional Ethics will take up this complaint and bring formal charges against Ms. Waters.

Of note, Judicial Watch has submitted their own complaint and is encouraging individual Americans to submit one as well:
Please also keep in mind just how corrupt the group Citizens for Ethics has labeled her:
It is high time We The People of the United States stop wallowing in self-pity and inflicted fear from the Democrat Party and the Dinosaur Media. It is time we stand up, call out the dangerous to down-right harmful officials who are actively seeking and encouraging ways to divide us. Recognize them for the traitors they are and demand their removal from the leadership roles they have clung to for so many decades.
