Kyle Rittenhouse’s team of lawyers could potentially be preparing for a defamation case against President Biden after his controversial White supremacist tweet from last year.
The verdict revealed on Friday shocked plenty of people after the teen was cleared of all his charges, after deliberation of the jury, who termed him ‘not guilty’.
But it certainly appeared as if the President was not a happy man, as confirmed by media reports, just moments after the verdict was revealed.
Biden was quick to announce how the jury has spoken and the decision would be respected as we have to ‘abide by the judgment.’
Meanwhile, the spokesperson for the Rittenhouse family claims ‘justice was done’ with the not guilty verdict and this could pave way for a potential defamation case against the President for his remarks from last year.
Todd McMurty, an expert analyst on defamation lawsuits mentioned how the President could potentially be held accountable for his words. But what exactly did the President state is a question on so many people’s minds.
“There is no other simple way to put it: The US President refuses to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night,”- these were Biden’s exact words in his tweet from September 2020.
But the controversy didn’t stop there. The remarks came with a video that featured White nationalists marching forward towards Charlottesville in Virginia and a number of other images too. And that’s when a voice-over from Fox News correspondent Chris Wallace is heard.
He asked then-President Trump during a debate whether or not he’s willing to condemn the White Supremacists group and those arising from the militia.
Rittenhouse’s mom is upset over the President’s words. “When I saw what he said, I was beyond shocked. I was angry because he didn’t know my son, and he’s certainly not a white supremacist. He defamed my son,” she continued to add.
Whether this case actually gets registered or not- time will tell. But for now, it appears that the Rittenhouse team is certainly considering their options and the situation at hand.
