(TheRedWire.com) – On Wednesday, November 24, a jury found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of murder or manslaughter. In August 2020, Rittenhouse was in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to protect property and people’s lives from rioters intent on harming the city over social justice issues and alleged police brutality. The jury concluded Rittenhouse fatally shot two men and hurt another in self-defense.
Shortly after the incident, then Democratic-presidential nominee Joe Biden suggested the young man was a white supremacist, during an interview on CNN. Biden also tweeted a video montage of white nationalists and Proud Boys… as well as an image of Rittenhouse carrying an AR-15-style rifle. Now, one attorney suggests the president could be liable for his false accusations.

Todd McMurtry is a defamation and business litigation attorney who helped Nick Sandmann reach a massive settlement in a defamation lawsuit with CNN over similar false accusations. McMurtry said he believes Rittenhouse has a solid case against President Biden for using the then-17-year-old’s image to imply he was a racist.
The attorney said Biden is vulnerable right now despite serving as the nation’s current president. Biden made the claim before he was elected and inaugurated. Therefore, he doesn’t have executive or congressional immunity. Rittenhouse recently stated Biden defamed his character and created malice against him.
Will Rittenhouse sue?
