Rittenhouse has a job offer

Florida congressman Matt Gaetz said would be willing to offer Kyle Rittenhouse an internship at his office if he is acquitted of murder.

Speaking to Newsmax's Grant Stinchfield on Wednesday, Gaetz said he thinks the 18-year-old is not guilty of the charges and that the defendant was acting in self defense when he shot and killed two people and injured a third during a Black Lives Matter protest last August.

The jury is currently deliberating on whether to convict the defendant in the highly divisive trial.

"He is not guilty, he deserves a not guilty verdict," Gaetz said.

"And I sure hope he gets it because, you know what? Kyle Rittenhouse would probably make a pretty good congressional intern [and] we may reach out to him and see if he'd be interested in helping the country in additional ways."

If it gets him out of Wisconsin they might acquit him on that alone.

That would probably make him the oldest intern in the office.

BTW, since this is the latest Rittenhouse thread, why aren’t the Feds interested in the straw purchase that got him the gun in the first place?

'"He is not guilty, he deserves a not guilty verdict," Gaetz said.'

Gaetz should have made this clear earlier. We could have avoided the cost and spectacle of a court case.

Charges have been filed against a 19-year-old man who prosecutors allege purchased and supplied the gun used by 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse in the fatal shootings of two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Dominick Black, of Kenosha, faces two felony counts of intentionally giving a dangerous weapon to a minor, causing death, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kenosha County Circuit Court. If he's found guilty, he faces up to 6 years in prison per count.

Perhaps they are interested but left the initial prosecution to the state on the more serious homicide charges.

Seems to me that both parties to a straw sale ought to be prosecuted. Isn't that what we always hear? Enforce the existing gun laws first.

Whichever way this goes, all hell's gonna break loose when the verdict finally comes down. It's what this nation has become, sadly. Already plenty of pictures showing "many fine citizens" skulking around that courthouse "bearing" rifles and guns galore. What could possibly go wrong here?

And WTF is wrong with all these people ??

Nestor must’ve aged out of the role.
