“Let’s just start on that. Obviously it’s disturbing. I know you have spoken about it to hear the inaccuracies that were discussed about this case prior to the trial. The fact that it’s still happening, what is damaging about that at this point for the country on the whole?” MacCallum requested.

“It just continues a false narrative that these things happen when they didn’t,” Richards responded. “Kyle was a resident — I shouldn’t say he wasn’t but his dad lived there. He worked in the community. His best friend lived there, he spent a lot of time in Kenosha. The gun was never in Illinois. There’s no evidence that he had any ties or affinity to white racists, white supremacists. They looked through his phone, did nine search warrants to find some dirt. They came up with none. He wasn’t.”

MacCallum inquired whether or not that false narrative prolonged to the prosecution crew towards Rittenhouse. Richards admitted that white the prosecuting legal professionals mentioned issues that he didn’t approve of, he’s unsure whether or not it could rise to the extent of misconduct.

“Did the prosecutors do some things that I really don’t approve of? Yes. Did it rise to the level of prosecutorial misconduct from a legal standpoint? I don’t think it necessarily did. Them putting on evidence that they know was untrue? Totally inappropriate. But would that have been able to get Kyle a new trial if he was found guilty? I don’t think so,” Richards mentioned.

“They’re under a tremendous amount of pressure. Many of them if not all of them knew that going into it once they knew the case that they had been summoned for. The answers that they gave back in chambers late in the voir dire process, one woman that made the final 12, you know, flat out said, no matter what we decide, half of the United States is going to be mad at us. So they had that in their minds, had to be I think at the forefront. I give them a huge amount of credit for being able to put that aside, not listen to the people who were outside screaming and yelling to hang Kyle and do what I think the evidence warranted,” Richards mentioned.
