Kyle Rittenhouse may be heading back to court, but this time as the plaintiff.

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Rittenhouse dropped two big hints that he may sue President Joe Biden for appearing to falsely claim on Twitter he was a “white supremacist.”

“It’s actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that,” Rittenhouse told Carlson.

“Defamation” is a specific legal claim, and “actual malice” is the standard that must be proven to be awarded a judgment in court.

The use of two specific legal terms appears to be a sign Rittenhouse has been speaking with attorneys about Biden’s statement.

In September of 2020, Biden attacked Trump on Twitter stating “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.”


The tweet included audio of a clip from a presidential debate in which moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump if he would “condemn white supremacists and militia groups,” over video which appears to have been prepared by the Biden campaign. 

That video includes a photo of Rittenhouse as an example of a “white supremacist.”

Hunter will never be indicted. Hunter is CATHOLIC. CATHOLICS do not need any stinking rules. CATHOLICS do not need any stinking Constitution. Hitler was CATHOLIC. F J BIDET and Pelosi are CATHOLIC. Hitler was Nazi.
