Dirtbag House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler Calls for Federal Review of Kyle Rittenhouse Case

Earlier today a Wisconsin jury found teen shooter Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty of intentional homicide and other charges during the Kenosha leftist riots.

Following the announcement today dirtbag House Democrat Jerry Nadler called for a federal review of the verdict by Biden’s Department of Justice.

Joe Biden is on record calling Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist. Maybe Joe should sit this one out.

Democrats are just trying to intentionally divide the nation as they always do.

FOX 6 Now reported:

Following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, who plead self-defense in the fatal shooting of two men and wounding of a third during a night of protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., called for a federal review of the verdict by the U.S. Department of Justice.

“This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and 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,” Nadler wrote in a tweet posted Friday afternoon.

In order for Rittenhouse to face federal charges, there are several complicated factors that could make it unlikely for federal prosecutors to pursue a case.

For most homicide cases, federal law typically only applies in crimes that specifically violate federal law. According to Shouse Law Group, a criminal justice team in Los Angeles, the crime of murder “is prosecuted in state courts as a state crime. But murder becomes a federal crime when it occurs in violation of federal law, or when it takes place on a federal land or territory.”

Shouse Law Group writes, “The federal crime of murder is defined as the ‘unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought.’
