(Gateway Pundit) – Why hasn’t Maxine Waters been hit with an ethics investigation or censured over her calls for violence against Trump supporters?
As previously reported, two Marine Corps Reservists were attacked, maced and robbed in Philadelphia in November by a mob of Antifa protesters who called the Marines “Nazis” and “White Supremacists,” according to police.
Police reported the Marines were attacked blocks away from the rally by protesters who punched, kicked and maced them and stole a cellphone from one Marine. Police have not stated whether or not the Marines attended the rally.
On January 10th, DC Antifa leader Joseph “Jose” Alcoff AKA “Chepe,” was arrested and charged with multiple felonies in connection with the attack against the Marines.
Alcoff faces 17 charges, including multiple counts of aggravated assault, ethnic intimidation, conspiracy and terroristic threats, and one count of robbery while inflicting serious bodily injury, reported the Daily Caller News Foundation.

It turns out this violent Antifa leader is tied to Maxine Waters and other key Democrats — SHOCKER.
Via Fox News:
On Monday, the 37-year-old has a court date in connection with charges he’s facing in Philadelphia that include aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation for allegedly being part of an Antifa mob in November that attacked two Marines, Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres, both Hispanic. Alcoff and two others charged in the attack have pleaded not guilty.
But while Democratic officials are distancing themselves from Alcoff now, until recently he was a well-connected, aspiring political player in Washington who may have even had a hand in key policy proposals.
As the payday campaign manager for the liberal group Americans for Financial Reform, Alcoff participated in congressional Democratic press conferences, was a guest on a House Democratic podcast and met with senior officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau from 2016 through 2018.
He was also pictured with now-House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking Democrat on the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio. Both committees oversee financial regulatory policies Alcoff was advocating.
