Perhaps Rittenhouse’s attorneys can make a statement about the fact that Kyle’s congresswoman is trying to link him to “white supremacists“ during a hearing with federal agencies. Better yet, as there’s no evidence that he’s a “white supremacist”, add on another lawsuit?
An attorney representing alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse has announced plans to sue Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his campaign for libel on his client's behalf after Biden shared a video that appears to suggest the teenager is a White supremacist.
Lin Wood, Rittenhouse’s civil attorney, confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday his intention to sue the former vice president and his campaign on his client’s behalf, just hours after Biden posted the 50-second clip to Twitter.
This has to stop. Oh, today she released this on her campaign (non-government) website:
FBI Director Christopher Wray recently testified before the House Committee on Homeland Security and identified domestic violent extremism, particularly white supremacist violence, as a leading threat to our nation.
"Suburban and rural communities like ours are increasingly threatened by acts of mass violence. Less than two years ago, we experienced a mass shooting in an Aurora workplace that tragically killed five of our neighbors. This summer, a teenager from our community allegedly committed murder in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Targeted violence is an increasing threat to our workplaces, schools and places of worship; keeping our communities safe from violence of any kind is a top priority for me in Congress," Underwood said.
