Jerry Nadler Calls For DOJ Review Of Rittenhouse Case

Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler is calling for the DOJ to review the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict after Rittenhouse was acquitted.

Nadler said Friday that the acquittal is a “miscarriage of justice” and claimed it “sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ”.

“Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment-protected protest,” he added.

Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five charges brought against him.

Rittenhouse had testified that he did not cross state lines with a weapon last August. He got the gun used in the shootings from his friend in Kenosha earlier that day.

Judge Bruce Schroeder had dropped the charge of possession of a dangerous weapon by a minor because there are exceptions for guns that exceed a certain barrel length.

It is unclear how a DOJ review of the case would go. Independent reported that the DOJ “has no power to ‘intervene on matters of state law’, according to its own website”.
