Kyle Rittenhouse and his attorney Todd McMurtry joined Tucker Carlson on Monday evening to discuss his defamation charges against Mark Zuckerberg and mainstream media outlets.
McMurtry previously said it’s “pretty much assured that there’s probably 10 to 15 solid” cases against “large defendants.”
They announced their lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg for calling Rittenhouse a “mass murderer” and to use his platform to censor any views that would take opposition to his mass murderer allegation.
Rittenhouse told Tucker Carlson earlier this year that they had some politicians and celebrities in mind for lawsuits.
As The Blaze noted, Nicholas Sandmann’s lawyer joined Rittenhouse’s legal team:
Numerous influential media outlets painted Sandmann as an aggressor in a 2019 confrontation with Native American activist Nathan Phillips following the March for Life near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Lawyer Todd McMurty was part of the legal team that represented Sandmann in their defamation lawsuits against some of the biggest and most powerful media corporations in the world. Sandmann’s legal team was able to force settlements with CNN, NBC, and the Washington Post.
“I’ve been hired to head the effort to determine whom to sue, when to sue, where to sue,” Todd McMurtry told Fox News. “We’re going to look at everything that’s been said, determine which of those comments are legally actionable and proceed from there.”
McMurty declared that there are “probably 10 to 15 solid” cases against “large defendants.”
McMurty hinted that Facebook and Zuckerberg could be potential targets of defamation lawsuits.
“Let’s just use for an example what Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg said about [Rittenhouse]. They said that he was involved in a mass murder incident,” McMurtry said. “This was not a mass murder incident. It was clearly factually false.”
“Well, right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes, Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list,” Rittenhouse said.
“She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that.”
“We’re going to be taking them to court,” Rittenhouse told Tucker Carlson.
