“Bitter Pill To Swallow” Kyle Rittenhouse’s Former Attorney Vents About Being “Defamed” For His Role In The Case

After being acquitted on murder charges stemming from his actions at a Black Lives Matter protest, Kyle Rittenhouse has been making media appearances to address the incident, the trial, and his own fame. As a part of this, he’s talked about some of the incidents that arose between the shootings and the trial verdict, and he’s put the blame on his former attorney.

In an interview after his trial, Rittenhouse said that he didn’t know the hand signal he was flashing in a photo meant “white power,” and that he didn’t know the people he was posing with were members of the ‘Proud Boys’ extremist group. He blamed his former attorney, John Pierce, for setting up the photo op.

Now Pierce is responding, thanking Lin Wood, another attorney who formerly worked with Rittenhouse’s case, for coming to his defense. The Rittenhouse family isn’t exactly happy with Wood, either, who they’ve attacked over his efforts to recoup the money donated for Kyle’s bail.

In a series of tweets, Pierce thanked Wood for defending him against the family’s allegations, and declared himself a strong man, able to forgive, but called the experience a “bitter pill to swallow” and declared that he had been ‘defamed’ and his work ‘minimized’ after his efforts to free Rittenhouse.

Pierce’s connection to the case was always controversial, in part due to his own financial situation, which led him to separate himself from the fundraising part of the case.
