Kyle Rittenhouse’s Lawyer: ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, This Is a Political Case’

‘The District Attorney’s Office is marching forward with this case because they need somebody to be responsible’

EXCERPT:

RICHARDS: “Highly charged atmosphere here in Kenosha. Make no mistake. You live here. You know. They had to do something. They had to charge the white supremacist who isn’t a white supremacist. They never reassessed their case. They’ve never looked at it. They’ve never said, oh, Dr. Kelley, let’s talk about this wound on the hand. That means he was touching the barrel or his hand was over the barrel when it was fired? Well, that means he was pretty close. No. We’re not going to reassess. We’re going to march forward. We’re going to throw it into the hands of 12 people from the city and let them do our work. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a political case. We can take politics out of it as a Democrat and Republican, but the District Attorney’s Office is marching forward with this case because they need somebody to be responsible. They need somebody to put and say we did it. He’s the person who brought terror to Kenosha. Kyle Rittenhouse is not that individual.”
