Watch: Rittenhouse lawyer destroys Chris Cuomo on live TV in only 15 seconds

from WND:

As you can imagine, everyone’s favorite establishment media hacks were in a bit of a tizzy on Friday night following the news that Kenosha teen Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all counts against him, including double homicide, after he shot three men during fiery riots last year.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo was most certainly among them, determined to continue to paint the young man as the reckless, irresponsible perpetrator of a crime over which he was only acquitted due to the color of his skin and Wisconsin laws that protect the right to self-defense.

Rittenhouse 2.0: Threats of New Litigation Fly in the Aftermath of Rittenhouse Verdict

by JonathanTurley, Jonathan Turley:

In the aftermath of the Rittenhouse verdict, figures on both sides of the case threatened new filings and investigations. It seems likely that the case will move into a new stage of litigation, particularly civil litigation. However, advocates on both sides may be overstating the basis for a Rittenhouse 2.0. These lawsuits can come with risks and considerable costs. That is why Voltaire once lamented “I was never ruined but twice: once when I lost a lawsuit, and once when I won one.”

EXCLUSIVE: Virginia cop who was fired for anonymously donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund after being outed by hackers demands his job back from woke police chief as jury acquits on ALL counts

by Jennifer Smith, Daily Mail:

  • Lt. William Kelly, 42, was fired by Norfolk Police Department in April this year
  • He anonymously donated $25 to Rittenhouse’s defense fund last year 
  • Kelly, a former homicide investigator, told DailyMail.com he watched videos and it was ‘clear’ Rittenhouse had a case for self-defense from the beginning
  • He wanted to help him because ‘lawyers are expensive’ but didn’t want to associate his police department with it, so left off his name 
  • A group of hackers then harvested who had donated and found his email address
  • They gave his name and his rank to The Guardian and he was fired after a story was written  
  • Since then, Kelly has been living on his savings and his wife’s teacher salary 
  • He was ten months from vesting for his pension when he was fired and the couple has three kids  
  • Kelly told DailyMail.com he stands by his view but that Rittenhouse’s acquittal is irrelevant because he’d expressed a private opinion
  • The police chief in Norfolk was not disciplined for parading in uniform at a BLM protest in May 2020 
  • The cop says it’s a ‘dumbfounding’ double standard that is silencing cops across the country who now feel ‘disposable’ if they’re not liberal  

Leftists convicted Rittenhouse before trial, and don’t let acquittal change their minds

ACLU complains teen was ‘not held responsible’

Liberals long have been condemning Kyle Rittenhouse for defending himself in that riot last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a violent event triggered by a police confrontation in which they shot and injured a suspect.

Rittenhouse shot three men, killing two, in a case he presented to the jury, with evidence, as self-defense.

‘Self-Defense Is Not Illegal…We Made It Through The Hard Part’: Rittenhouse Speaks After Not Guilty Verdict

by Amanda Prestigiacomo, Daily Wire:

“Self-defense is not illegal,” 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse asserted Friday after he was acquitted on all charges against him related to a deadly riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.

The teenager, appearing in a teaser clip for a documentary from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, can be seen in the back of a vehicle speaking to a cameraman following the reading of his not guilty verdict.

Kyle Rittenhouse and ‘White Male Supremacy’

by Gregory Hood, The Unz Review:

Kyle Rittenhouse shot three white men in Kenosha, Minnesota last year. Nonetheless, his case is the largest racial controversy in the country today, drawing far more media attention than the Ahmaud Arbery case or the civil suit against Unite the Right organizers in Charlottesville.

Mr. Rittenhouse — whom the police once identified as “Hispanic” in a separate, traffic case — was protecting property and people in Kenosha during a riot by Black Lives Matter supporters. He shot his attackers on the second night of disorder. The National Guard is on standby in Kenosha because trouble may result after the verdict. If the Guard had been used last year, Mr. Rittenhouse probably would not have had to go to Kenosha.

Kyle Rittenhouse found not guilty by Kenosha jury

from RT:

A jury has found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on charges of murder and reckless endangerment related to the August 2020 shooting of three participants in the Kenosha, Wisconsin riots.

The jury of five men and seven women delivered its verdict after four days of deliberations.

During the week-long trial, prosecutors painted Rittenhouse as a vigilante who crossed state lines with an illegally obtained “assault rifle” and fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, while wounding Gaige Grosskreutz, who were part of a “crowd full of heroes” peacefully protesting the racist police shooting of black man Jacob Blake.

Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorneys allege that the prosecution hid evidence

0

by Andrea Widburg, American Thinker:

During the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, the prosecution argued that Kyle provoked the men who attacked him by waving his gun.  To prove this, during the trial, the prosecution gave the defense fuzzy drone footage.  There was a great deal of argument about what could be extrapolated from that fuzzy view.  It turns out that the prosecution had within its possession a high-quality video that it played for the judge after the trial ended.  On this, and other evidentiary grounds, the defense moved for a mistrial with prejudice.

The defense motion states the facts with sufficient clarity that I’m going to reprint them here verbatim:
