Rittenhouse Trial: Terrifying and Unnerving

Rittenhouse Trial: Terrifying and Unnerving

This clip is from a segment from last night’s Tucker Carlson Tonight covering the obvious prosecutorial misconduct going on in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial in Kenosha, Wisconson. A couple of quick excerpts below:

Judge: I indicated that bias towards denial is what I did — Held it open with a bias towards denial. Why would you think that that made it okay for you, without any advance notice, to bring this matter before the jury? You are already — you are — I was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant’s post-arrest silence. That’s basic law. It’s been basic law in this country for 40 years, 50 years. I have no idea why you would do something like that, and it gives — well, I will leave it at that. So I don’t know what you’re up to.


Tucker: You can watch televised trials for the next ten years and never hear a judge talk like that. That’s how completely out of control the prosecution in this case is. At this point, it’s not even clear it’s going to make it to a jury. The defense has asked the judge to dismiss the case without the possibility of retrial, and the judge indicated he might very well grant that request. So again, what you’re watching is willful prosecutorial misconduct. It’s an intentional perversion of justice and the judge very well knows that. I have heard nothing in this trial to change any of my rulings.

Prosecutor: That was before the testimony, your honor.

Judge: Pardon me? Don’t get brazen with me. You knew very well — you know very well that an attorney can’t go into these types of areas when the judge has already ruled without asking outside the presence of the jury to do so. don’t give me that.
