Jerry Nadler, Representative for New York’s 10th congressional district and acting chairman of the House Judiciary Democrats, has called for an investigation in Kyle Rittenhuse’s case by the DOJ.

You’ve probably read that this Friday, the 18-year-old Rittenhouse was found not guilty of homicide and other charges related to the shootings of three men, two fatally, on Aug. 25, 2020, during the racial justice riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
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. https://t.co/Uh95Uc1Ddo

Nadler’s statement forwards a number of false claims related to the Rittenhouse case. The first one was that Rittenhouse crossed the state line with a weapon.
“During the trial, it was actually revealed that the rifle used by Rittenhouse — who was legally armed, according to the judge in his case — never left Kenosha.
The teen picked it up at his best friend’s stepfather’s house,” The New York Post reported.
In response to Nadler’s tweet, prominent conservatives have taken to Twitter to voice their concerns over the Department of Justice possibly attempting to overturn the verdict.
Nadler wants to harass Rittenhouse using the weaponized DOJ based on a lie. This is insane. https://t.co/tpsBhxwITn
