After presidential nominee Joe Biden retweeted a video that called 17-year-old Kenosha, Wisconsin shooter Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist, a lawyer for Rittenhouse threatened to sue the would-be president for defamation.
Rittenhouse is facing murder charges for shooting two people during the Kenosha riots, but has presented video evidence that he says proves he shot in self-defense.
Lin Wood also represented Nick Sandman in defamation suits against CNN and other media outlets that branded him a racist for confronting a Native American during a pro-life demonstration in Washington, D.C.
Wood demanded a “public retraction” by the campaign and by Joe Biden himself, with legal action to follow if they refuse.
“Biden/Harris Campaign & @JoeBiden only needed to spend 11 minutes to know their accusations against Kyle Rittenhouse were blatantly false PRIOR to publication of video falsely accusing Kyle,” Wood further tweeted. “See you in court, Joe. That is a promise. I keep my promises.”
