Kyle Rittenhouse’s defamation cases are picking up steam as lawyers say President Joe Biden posted a video in September 2020, which could now possibly cause Biden real legal trouble in this case, according to lawyer Todd McMurtry.
Civil rights lawyer Leo Terrell warned Biden on Fox News that the now-president couldn’t justify his remarks and that he’s ‘going to have to pay for and justify’ his actions.
Kyle confirmed again on a podcast this week that Biden is in his and his legal team’s lawsuit crosshairs as he prepares to go on offense with defamation lawsuits.
Last year, Rittenhouse was acquitted of all five charges against him. McMurtry hinted that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will be at the “top” of the “list” in a series of lawsuits as his platform labeled the Kenosha shootings a “mass murder” event, which the lawyer said is “factually false,” according to the Fox News report.
“We’re taking on Facebook! Zuckerberg defamed me and spread lies about me in a video. We’re here to prove that his reckless actions aren’t protected under section 230.”
“Let’s just use for an example what Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg said about [Rittenhouse]. They said that he was involved in a mass murder incident,” McMurtry said. “This was not a mass murder incident. It was clearly factually false. To call somebody a mass murderer is seriously defamatory. And then to use the power of social media to basically … censor any views that would take opposition to that mass murderer statement is a serious effort to destroy his character. And it was seriously mistaken and seriously defamatory.”
Rittenhouse, who had announced the launch of his “Media Accountability Project” back in February aimed to sue media organizations, politicians, and public figures for falsely defaming him as a “white supremacist” and claiming that he “illegal crossed state lines with a firearm.” Back in February, Rittenhouse told Fox News Host Tucker Carlson that some of the lawsuits would be targeted at NBA star LeBron James, and The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg who asserted that Rittenhouse had “murdered” one of his shooters, Joseph Rosenbaum.
“I’ve been all right, but it’s been a little difficult ‘cause with all the false narratives that were put out, where people called me a white supremacist, a murderer and racist, and all those other lies, I don’t know if somebody’s seen one of those articles or watched one of those news stories,” said Rittenhouse.
“It’s time to make the media and Big Tech pay for what they did to me. I want them to think twice before defaming another kid. They’ve gotten too big, too partisan, and too comfortable lying about and trying to destroy everyday regular Americans.” Rittenhouse declared.
Rittenhouse announced the release of a new video game Thursday in which you can shoot “fake news turkeys” — and proceeds will go to his ongoing effort to sue media outlets for defamation.
