Kyle Rittenhouse accused his former attorney on Tuesday of setting him up by organizing a meeting with the Proud Boys group, photographs from which were used to label him a white supremacist.

Rittenhouse, who was acquitted Friday of all five charges stemming from his August 2020 shooting of three men during a protest, gave an interview Tuesday to NewsNation’s Ashleigh Banfield, where he commented on the footage of him flashing a “white power sign” while posing with members of the Proud Boys.

The article goes on to state the following:

“You have stated that you are not a racist, but yet there is a video footage of you using the hand signs that are used by groups that are considered by many to be white supremacist,” Banfield said. “Why have you associated with members of groups like the Proud Boys? Why have you used hand signs that are commonly associated with white supremacy?”


“I didn’t know that the OK hand sign was a symbol for white supremacy, just as I didn’t know that those people in the bar were Proud Boys. They were set up by my former attorney who was fired for that,” Rittenhouse explained.

The teen was widely criticized for a photo he posed for last year after he was released from jail. He explained in the interview that his former lawyer John Pierce arranged the meeting with the Proud Boys group in a Wisconsin bar, saying he wanted to hire the members of the group to provide security for him.

Rittenhouse said he only learned later who they were.

During the NewNation Now interview, Rittenhouse also responded to offers he has received from some Republican lawmakers to serve as an intern.

He said he does not plan to accept any internships, and has no interest in getting involved in politics.

The teen also expressed regret for going to the protest on the night of August 25, 2020 in Kenosha, although he emphasized that he does not regret defending himself.

  1. I don’t mind all the questions and articles
    at the end of your article/podcast but I really hate to have nonsense before what I clicked on to read. Leave the surveys and nonsense at the end.

  2. The White Power sign has been debunked so many times but the demonic dishonest media continue to use that narrative. Neo Nazis, kkk groups, skinhead gangs abroad do no recognize the OK sign as their symbol. 4Chan trolling group started that as a joke to troll gullible news reporters.

  3. I give this young man a lot of credit. He has wisdom beyond his age. He doesn’t want to be used, not by politicians, the media or anyone else. Some would market themselves for fame and fortune.
    I hope he and his family can eventually get beyond this and live their lives without being targets.
