A prominent House Democrat floated a conspiracy theory on MSNBC yesterday without providing a shred of evidence.

Warning of violence if Donald Trump loses the 2024 presidential election, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) told host Jonathan Capehart that she intends to ask the Justice Department and the White House what, exactly, President Joe Biden will do if his Republican challenger refuses to accept the election results.

Waters then accused unnamed “right-wing organizations” of “training up in the hills somewhere,” implying that extremist violence against the government is likely, if not inevitable.

JUST IN: Rep. Maxine Waters launches new conspiracy theory that Trump supporters are “training up in the hills” for a coordinated attack.

Waters also called on the DOJ to investigate this made up threat in her head.

“I tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to ask the Justice… pic.twitter.com/x4WFCGsSzZ— Collin Rugg (@CollinRugg) May 6, 2024

“Trump says in that, in that Time interview, interview that he would not seek to overturn or ignore the Constitution’s prohibition on a third term,” Capehart said, according to the transcript. “Should the American people believe that? Do you believe that?” he continued.

“No! Absolutely not,” an indignant Waters declared. “As I said, you can’t believe anything that Donald Trump has to say. Donald Trump will do any and everything that he can possibly get away with. He does not at all support the Constitution of the United States of America. This is a man who we better be careful about.”

Then came her uncorroborated claims about Trump “connected” groups preparing to attack:

And I tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to ask the Justice Department and I’m going to ask the president to tell us what they are going to do to protect this country against violence if he loses. I want to know about all of those right-wing organizations that he’s connected with who are training up in the hills somewhere and targeting, you know, what communities they’re going to attack. We need to know now, given that he’s telling us that there’s going to be violence if he loses. We need to know what his plan is and how we’re going to be protected.

Mediaite’s Isaac Schorr has more:

During his interview with Time, Trump said he “wouldn’t be in favor” of an effort to challenge the 22nd Amendment and seek a third term.

“I wouldn’t be in favor of it. I wouldn’t be in favor of a challenge. Not for me,” mused Trump. “I wouldn’t be in favor of it at all. I intend to serve four years and do a great job. And I want to bring our country back. I want to put it back on the right track.”
