Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) is demanding a "federal review" of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, claiming Friday the acquittal of the 18-year-old amounted to a "miscarriage of justice."
Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called on the Department of Justice to intervene over the "heartbreaking verdict."
Unfortunately, Nadler also repeated the media's misleading narrative about Rittenhouse being armed and having crossed state lines.
Although interstate travel is completely legal, Rittenhouse did not cross from Illinois to Wisconsin while armed. In fact, Rittenhouse's dad lives in Kenosha, and the AR-15 rifle that Rittenhouse was armed with never left Wisconsin. And, at any rate, Rittenhouse lives in Antioch, a town on the Illinois-Wisconsin border just 20 minutes south of Kenosha.
"This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ," Nadler said. "Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment-protected protest."
