[Ed. – Fair enough. They can probably prove it’s defamatory, as there was never any evidence Rittenhouse had an affinity for “white supremacist” groups. It could also be a signal development if it goes all the way through, forcing the Biden campaign to spell out in court its basis for labeling someone a “white supremacist.” There badly needs to be a public reckoning on that – because the biggest problem with the whole thing is that calling people white supremacists is an industry, which thrives on the lack of a rigorous definition.]
An attorney representing alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse has announced plans to sue Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his campaign for libel on his client’s behalf after Biden shared a video that appears to suggest the teenager is a White supremacist.
Lin Wood, Rittenhouse’s civil attorney, confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday his intention to sue the former vice president and his campaign on his client’s behalf, just hours after Biden posted the 50-second clip to Twitter.
The tweet, which had garnered more than 48,000 retweets and 148,000 likes by 2:35 p.m. EST, boasts the caption: “There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night.”
