Now Biden Is Getting Involved In The Chauvin Trial

Like Rep. Maxin Waters, Biden is getting involved in the juries deliberation of the Chauvin trial. 

George Floyd’s brother Philonise said that Biden called him earlier this week when the jury began deliberations in the Chauvin trial. 

“He was just calling. He knows how it is to lose a family member. And he knows that the process of what we’re going through so he was just letting us know that he was praying for us, and hoping that everything would come out to be okay,” Philonise told NBC’s Today.

Philonise is optimistic that the jury will convict Chauvin however also expressed he wants “everyone to be peaceful.” 

Biden also addressed the media causing more chaos hoping for the “right” decision.

I really feel for these jurors if they have a verdict anything other than guilty their lives are going to be in danger and the press is chopping at the bit. 

Which will be hard to do after Rep. Maxine Waters dumped gasoline on a fire when she told protestors to be “more confrontational” if Chauvin is not found guilty. 

Before deliberations began presiding Judge Cahill relented that Waters comments may result in the entire trial being overturned. 

“I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” Cahill told the defense. 

“I’m aware that Congresswoman 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. “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. I think if they want to give their opinions, they should do so in a respectful and in a manner that is consistent with their oath to the Constitution, to respect a co-equal branch of government. Their failure to do so I think is abhorrent, but I don’t think it has prejudiced us with additional material that would prejudice his jury.”

In response to the Judge of Waters said, “The judge said my words don’t matter.”
