Rittenhouse: 'Corrupt' Prosecutor Binger 'Just Wants to Make a Name for Himself'
Acquitted teen slams lead prosecuting attorney in his case
Kyle Rittenhouse has taken the lead prosecutor in his case, Thomas Binger, to the woodshed for pushing phony charges against him.
Speaking during an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Rittenhouse slammed Binger as a "corrupt person" who just wanted "to make a name for himself."
"In my belief, the prosecutorial misconduct, in this case, is ridiculous,” Rittenhouse said.
"They knew I was innocent, but they still decided to bring these charges to make their name, to have a name.
"They wanted my head on their shelf," he stated.
"There is this FBI surveillance plane — may I remind you — it is illegal to surveil U.S. citizens."
"But the FBI still had a plane up, and then they tried to twist it and say I was chasing down Mr. Rosenbaum," Rittenhouse continued.
"Never happened,” he added.
"And the funny thing is, we were not provided that drone footage until October and they had it way before and the F.B.I. gave it to them and they compressed that FBI drone video and gave it to us.
"They gave us a compressed version of that file.
"Same thing with the drone video," he noted.
"So they had a 4K drone that showed the shooting of Mr. Rosenbaum.”
"And another very, very, very disgrace in this government is with the FBI drone, they called the camera operator of that drone to testify,” he continued.
"ADA Binger asked us questions, and then attorney Mark Richards, great attorney, phenomenal attorney, asked these questions.
"He asked about the tail number, the state objected."
"And then he said he had letter from the State Attorney, and we weren’t able to ask him the tail number so we can submit our FOIA request, which are still being appealed right now so we can get the complete version of that night on the drone video.
"He wouldn’t give us the tail number.
"We weren’t able to ask him what the tail number was because of the 2E (ph) letter that we got the day he testified that, supposedly disappeared from attorney Natalie Wisco, another great attorney’s e-mail.
"It just completely magically disappeared from her e-mail because the state said they emailed them, but we never got it.”
When asked by Carlson what he thought motivated Binger, Rittenhouse said, “Assistant District Attorney Binger is a corrupt person who just wants to make a name for himself and not look at the facts.”
"I used to be a fan of the prosecutors — not anymore,” Rittenhouse revealed.
"I believe there are still good prosecuting attorneys out there, but he is a prosecuting attorney that wants to make a name for himself and he is supposed to speak the truth and nothing but the truth.
"But he decided he wanted to lie and try to put me in prison for the rest of my life for defending myself.”
