Lin Wood, the attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse, demanded Joe Biden’s campaign retract an ad that has a false accusation against his client.

Then Wood announced that he will sue Biden and the campaign on behalf of his client for libel.

Rittenhouse traveled from his home in Antioch, IL, to Kenosha, WI, in August to help protect businesses from looters and mobs.

He allegedly shot three men. Two of those men died and the third suffered serious injuries.

Rittenhouse faces five charges: reckless homicide, recklessly endangering safety, intentional homicide, attempted homicide, and recklessly endangering safety.

The attorneys claim Rittenhouse acted in self-defense. Fuzzy wrote on August 28 that The New York Times’ reconstruction of that night makes a case for the defense strategy.

Biden’s Twitter account posted a new ad after Monday’s night debate to attack President Donald Trump’s supposed “refusal” to condemn white supremacists.

Biden wrote, “There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night.”

I refuted that claim earlier today. But I digress.

The ad includes Rittenhouse.

Wood responded that the attorneys started preparing a formal demand for a public retraction from the Biden/Harris campaign.

Wood also demanded that Biden “immediately retract his false accusation that Kyle is a white supremacist & militia member responsible for violence in Kenosha.”

Marina Medvin, another attorney on Rittenhouse’s team, tweeted out her response as well.

“There is no evidence of him being a ‘white supremacist,'” she wrote. “This dangerous storyline was concocted by online trolls and then promoted by mindless politicians and pundits. The flagrant defamation needs to stop. They can retract and apologize, or they can deal with Lin Wood in court. It’s their choice.”

The thread includes screenshots of videos showing Rittenhouse saying he had his medical kit so he could help anyone who had injuries.
