Rack up another win for powerhouse attorney L. Lin Wood.
While fighting for America alongside Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, he’s still finding time to represent his other clients, most notably Kyle Rittenhouse.
And thanks to Wood, Kyle is OUT of jail tonight.
Check it out:
From the Washington Times:
A 17-year-old from Illinois who is charged with killing two people during a protest in Wisconsin and whose case has become a rallying cry for some conservatives posted $2 million bail Friday and was released from custody.
Kyle Rittenhouse is accused of fatally shooting Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and wounding Gaige Grosskreutz during a demonstration Aug. 25 that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. He posted bond through his attorney at about 2 p.m., Kenosha County Sheriff’s Sgt. David Wright said.
Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, told police he was attacked while he was guarding a business and that he fired in self-defense.
He faces multiple charges, including intentional homicide, reckless endangerment and being a minor in possession of a firearm. Wisconsin law doesn’t permit minors to carry or possess a gun unless they’re hunting. He is due back in court on Dec. 3 for a preliminary hearing.
His case has taken on political overtones. Supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement have painted Rittenhouse as a trigger-happy white supremacist. Conservatives upset over property destruction during recent protests have portrayed him as a patriot exercising his right to bear arms during unrest. A legal defense fund for him has attracted millions of dollars in donations, and his mother got a standing ovation from women at a Waukesha County GOP function in September.
Huber’s father, John Huber, asked Kenosha County Circuit Court Commissioner Loren Keating during a hearing Nov. 2 to set Rittenhouse’s bail between $4 million and $10 million. Huber said Rittenhouse thinks he’s above the law and noted the effort to raise money on his behalf. He also suggested militia groups would hide him from police if he were released.
Rittenhouse’s attorney, Mark Richards, asked for $750,000 bail.
Kyle Rittenhouse is out of jail but remains convicted on social media – I look forward to his lawsuits. Big tech can’t hide behind Section 230.

And from the NY Post:
Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen accused of fatally shooting two people during protests in Kenosha, Wis., has been released from jail on a $2 million bond, reports said Friday.
His release, at 2 p.m., was confirmed by the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department.
The bond was handled by his attorney, said Public Information Officer Sgt. David Wright. It was not immediately clear who footed the bill.
Rittenhouse, 17, insists he was acting in self-defense on Aug. 25, when police say he killed protesters Anthony Huber, 26, and Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and wounded a third man.
The victims were protesting in the aftermath of the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
Rittenhouse has told a friend, co-defendant Dominick Black, 19, that he was convinced he would spend the rest of his life in prison for the shootings.
Black, of Kenosha, is charged with purchasing the AR-15-style rifle used in the shootings as a favor to Rittenhouse, who, at 17, was too young to buy one himself.
Rittenhouse said Thursday that he paid for the weapon , a Smith & Wesson M&P, using his $1,200 in coronavirus stimulus money.
