Speaking to conservative podcast host Charlie Kirk, Kyle Rittenhouse detailed this week what he thought were the two critical points in his trial that showed him favorability, and he revealed that the state had “no case” against him — and both points hit very early in the trial.
“At what point in the trial were you like, okay this is going in a direction that is somewhat favorable,” Kirk asked Rittenhouse.
“There were two, actually, from when I knew the state didn’t have a case,” the teenager explained.
“It’s when they had their opening statements and when they put Dominick Black (Rittenhouse’s friend) on the stand, which really helped me. That’s when I knew that they didn’t have a case.”
“So the opening statements, you already knew?” Kirk said.
“Yeah,” Rittenhouse said, explaining the prosecution claiming that the teenager “chased down” Joseph Rosenbaum, “which is not true.”
