Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY), the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, the same guy who ran two fake impeachment hearings against former President Donald Trump, has asked the DOJ to review the Kyle Rittenhouse case for possible federal charges. Forget the fact that President Joe Biden has already said that he respects the Kenosha jury’s verdict.
This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ. Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment-protected protest. https://t.co/Uh95Uc1Ddo

If Biden wants to knock his approval rating down to 20%, then by all means, tell two-thirds of the country, including Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, who believe Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself that you’re going to go after him with trumped up federal charges for political reasons. Go ahead. I dare you.
There was nothing federal about the case. Jerry Nadler needs to pull his head out from where the sun doesn’t shine. It was already established last year that Rittenhouse did not carry a firearm across state lines when he traveled from Illinois to Kenosha, Wisconsin. That’s what would have made it a federal case, but it never happened.
The Office of the State’s Attorney in Lake County, Illinois released a statement on October 13, 2020, over a year ago, on an investigation about the rifle crossing over state lines. The investigation concluded that Rittenhouse was never in possession of the rifle while he was in the state of Illinois:
An extensive investigation was conducted by the Antioch Police Department regarding the gun used in a shooting in Kenosha on Aug. 28. The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office has reviewed that investigation to determine if any crimes were committed in Lake County, Illinois.
To that end, the investigation revealed the gun used in the Kenosha shooting was purchased, stored and used in Wisconsin. Additionally, there is no evidence the gun was ever physically possessed by Kyle Rittenhouse in Illinois.
It was also established that Rittenhouse did not go Kenosha on August 25, 2020 to “look for trouble.” His father lives in Kenosha. There were hundreds of rioters around Rittenhouse, and he only fired upon the three people who attacked him and tried to kill him.
The young man went there to render aid to innocent people who were hurt by the animals who were rioting in the city. He was seen helping community residents cleaning graffiti off the walls of a local school building. He was seen on video helping to put out fires that were started by rioters. They were starting fires in Dumpsters with the intent of crashing the Dumpsters through store windows. Actual Dumpter fires! Kyle had a fire extinguisher and was trying to put out one of those Dumpster fires when the animals starting attacking him for doing so.
That’s when Kyle became an instant enemy to the mob because he was undermining the damage they were inflicting on an innocent city, his family’s community.
Everything you heard from the Left over this case, including the mainstream and Fake News media, leftists on social media, and political hacks like Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler was a lie.
