Attorneys for Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse say they will sue Joe Biden and his campaign...


Attorneys for Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse have announced they plan to sue Joe Biden and his campaign for libel after the presidential candidate tweeted a video suggesting the teenager is a white supremacist. 

Lin Wood, who is representing the 17-year-old shooter, on Wednesday said he is taking steps to demand a formal 'public retraction' from the Biden/Harris campaign shortly after the former VP shared the clip.

The 50-second video showed a mashup of scenes from white supremacist rallies and far-right groups across the country as debate moderator Chris Wallace is heard asking Trump if he is willing to condemn the racist organizations. 

The clip also includes a shot of Rittenhouse holding a rifle during the Kenosha protests, where he is accused of fatally shooting two demonstrators.

'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,' Biden said.

The tweet received over 273,000 likes and more than 67,000 retweets.
