Kyle Rittenhouse tears up accusers: “Wanted to make a name for himself”

Kyle Rittenhouse told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that he believed Wisconsin’s chief prosecutor in the case, Thomas Binger, was not interested in a fair verdict, but instead personal fame or advancement.

Binger, Kenosha County’s assistant district attorney, has had a long career in law, including a failed run on the Democratic Party’s line for Racine County, Wis., District attorney in 2016, according to The sun.

Binger, who argued the case along with prosecutor James Kraus, was often admonished by the judge, Bruce Schroeder, during Rittenhouse’s trial.

Schroeder, who was appointed to the bench by Democratic Gov. Patrick Lucey in 1983, urged Binger to “get naughty” to him at some point – as well as to argue that Rittenhouse’s Miranda-protected silence after the arrest should be explored. more.

Rittenhouse told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that there was a “ridiculous” amount of “prosecutor’s dishonesty” in his case.

“They knew I was innocent, but they still decided to raise these accusations to make their name – to get a name. They wanted my head on their shelf,” he said.

The 18-year-old addressed Binger’s behavior directly, calling the prosecutor 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 accusers, no longer: I believe there are still good accusers out there. He’s the accuser who wants to make a name for himself and he has to speak the truth and nothing but the truth, but he decided he would lie and try to put me in jail for the rest of my life to defend myself. “

“This is an issue that has nothing to do with politics – but politics was brought into it for people’s own agenda,” he added.

COOL RITTENHOUSE: GOD HAS BEEN ON MY SIDE

Rittenhouse also criticized the FBI after the operator of an airborne camera drone that took pictures of shooting incidents was called to testify.

He credited his own lawyer, Mark Richards, for asking the operator for the tail number of the plane – to be able to file a FOIA request, according to Rittenhouse – but that Binger and Kraus’ team protested the question based on what he described as the reception of En Wish letter from the Wisconsin State Attorney.

Because of the Touhy letter, “we were unable to ask him for the tail number so we could submit our FOIA requests – which are still being appealed right now so we can get the full version of that night on the drone video,” Rittenhouse told host Tucker Carlson.

“[The federal witness] would not give us the tail number. We were not able to ask him what the tail number is. “

Rittenhouse added that the government claimed that another of his lawyers, Natalie Wisco, allegedly received the Touhy information, but that the lawyer did not in fact do so.

“It magically disappeared from her email. The state said they sent it via email, but we never got it,” Rittenhouse said.
