Kyle Rittenhouse, recently found not guilty of all charges against him from the Kenosha riots last year, revealed to Fox News on Monday that he will be seeking legal action against those who defamed him over the past year.
"I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now," Rittenhouse stated when asked if he was going to pursue the much-debated defamation claims cases against individuals in the media.
During the trial, even Judge Bruce Schroeder claimed the misrepresentation of information involving the case was shocking. He admitted that he might not trust the media to cover his cases in the future accurately. "I will tell you this. I'm going to think long and hard about live television in a trial again, next time, I don't know. I've always been a firm believer in it because I think people should see what's going on but what's being done is really quite frightening."
Since Rittenhouse was found not guilty, many supporters of Rhittenhosue have discussed his options for moving forward with litigation against those who spoke out against him since the events of the riot.
While many would like to see President Joe Biden also held accountable for his tweets after the riot calling Rittenhouse a white supremacist, it will be a hard battle.
"What you take from that tweet is that Kyle Rittenhouse was using his rifle and engaging in White supremacist misconduct, so it's actionable. Not necessarily going to win, but it's actionable." lawyer Todd McMurtry told Fox News.
