Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz on Wednesday suggested that 18-year-old alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse would fit well as a congressional intern, possibly at Gaetz’s office.

“He is not guilty, he deserves an innocent sentence,” the Florida Republican told Newsmax Wednesday night. “And I certainly hope he gets it, because you know what? Kyle Rittenhouse would probably become a pretty good congressional intern.”
