[UPDATED] Kyle Rittenhouse’s Attorney Says He Should Be Released, And Ilhan Omar Locked Up Instead
These articles have been updated to reflect changes previously referencing the activist group Project Veritas and these edits in no way affect the original facts. There is no intention of mischaracterizing Project Veritas, and the language Project Veritas found to be offensive has been removed.
On Tuesday morning, Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorney, tweeting a video from Project Veritas, declared that Kyle Rittenhouse should be released, and Representative Ilhan Omar locked up instead.
Deflection has characterized the past presidential term, and attorney Lin Wood seemed to take a page from that book Tuesday morning. He tweeted a video clip posted by Project Veritas, an activist organization that has faced litigation in the past; as both plaintiff and defendant.
Despite all this, Lin Wood tweeted the video out on Tuesday, declaring that it’s “time to release Kyle Rittenhouse from jail,” and also “time to put [Representative Ilhan Omar] on ice.” He also declared that he would be blocking the congresswoman’s Twitter account while he waits for the Justice Department to charge her.
It is time to release Kyle Rittenhouse from jail. It is time to put @Ilhan @IlhanMN on ice. While waiting on @TheJusticeDept, I condemn Ilhan Omar to World of the Blocked. There she can get thawed out & warmed up for her appearance on jail mound. Bye, Ilhan!#WorldOfTheBlocked https://t.co/cKJkTs8vAk

Rittenhouse’s attorneys — Lin Wood and John Pierce — have already been the subject of controversy, not only for maintaining that the 17-year-old, who is charged with murder in the shooting deaths of two protestors in Kenosha Wisconsin, was merely defending himself, but for financial concerns, conspiracy-mongering about Israel and biological weapons, and other odd conspiracies.
