Kyle Rittenhouse’s Attorney Threatens Legal Action Against Joe Biden For Post Against White Supremacy

Lin Wood, one of the attorneys representing Kyle Rittenhouse, is demanding that Joe Biden retract statements about white supremacy, because he says they interfere with his client’s legal rights. Biden tweeted a short clip that included images of white supremacist groups and right-wing militias, with a sound bite from the debate, in which Donald Trump refused to condemn these groups.

Trump was asked to condemn white supremacists and militia groups, and ask them not to add to the violence, as was seen in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He refused to do so, instead saying to “Stand back and stand by.” Joe Biden’s ad rehashed this, while showing clips from the white supremacist Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017, and an image of Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha.

Rittenhouse has been associated with the militia group ‘Kenosha Guard,’ and the question specifically addressed increased violence where militia groups show up at protests for social justice and anti-racism.

Wood used a screenshot that suggests Rittenhouse was being associated specifically with the words “white supremacist,” rather than a broader group of white supremacists and militia members, and to violence at anti-racism protests. He declared that there will be a formal demand for Biden’s team to retract statements accusing Rittenhouse of being “a white supremacist & militia member responsible for violence in Kenosha.”

He also rehashed the well-debunked claims that Biden used some sort of earpiece to be fed lines for the debate, further dramatizing the conspiracy theory with a bizarre line about “computer contact lenses.”

Rittenhouse is charged with murder in the case of two protestors, who he is alleged to have shot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, when patrolling the streets with a long rifle during protests for racial justice.
