The top Demcorat took some backlash for his remarks:
Dan McLaughlin, National Review:
“White Congressman who represents Wall Street district calls for retrial of criminal defendant acquitted of shooting three white men.”
Dana Loesch, radio host:
“The Chairman of the Judiciary Cmte just lied by calling Rittenhouse an ‘armed person crossing state lines.’ His gun was never in Illinois. His dad lives in, and Rittenhouse works in, Kenosha, 20 min away from his mom’s house in Antioch. This is an irresponsible ploy to incite.”
Matthew Kolken, attorney:
“Democrats are inciting a riot.”
Ken Cuccinelli, former Virginia Attorney General:
“This astounding act of legislative tyranny comes from the man currently Chairing the House Judiciary Committee!"
"If anyone needs a reminder why Patrick Henry and so many others have valued a jury system so highly, look no farther than this vile tweet.”
Matt Whitlock, political strategist:
“Genuinely baffled by the Democrat messaging here. They wanted a clearly innocent kid to get charged with murder to make up for what they see as other injustices in the system. What would that accomplish?”
Neon Nettle reported:
Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges by the jury in his "murder" trial.
Jurors in Kenosha, Wisconsin, declared Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts on Friday.
They were capping off an intense trial surrounding the deadly unrest in that city last summer. Rittenhouse, 18, would have faced a mandatory life sentence if found guilty and convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.
