Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler called for a “federal review by DOJ” immediately after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty and cleared of all charges related to his court case on Friday.
“This heartbreaking verdict is a miscarriage of justice and sets a dangerous precedent which justifies federal review by DOJ,” Nadler tweeted. “Justice cannot tolerate armed persons crossing state lines looking for trouble while people engage in First Amendment-protected protest.”

Contrary to Nadler’s claim, “During dramatic testimony on the witness stand on November 10, Kyle Rittenhouse explained that his father lived in Kenosha, which is why he was in that city, in addition to working in the area as a lifeguard,” according to Heavy.
Following his post to Twitter, Nadler immediately got “ratioed,” meaning that the replies to his tweet vastly outnumber the likes or retweets. “This means people are objecting to the tweet and considering its content bad,” according to Dictionary.com.
Here are some of the highest-engaged reactions to Nadler:

This is a lie and I hope he sues you.

Tell me you didn’t watch the trial without telling me.

Your tweet shows a total contempt for the truth, and for the facts of the case, as established in the trial.

He didn't cross state lines while armed. You'd think the chairman of the judicial committee might know that little tidbit…

Imagine thinking you're part of the good guys trying to use federal powers to overturn a clear and decisive jury verdict simply so your side can win.

Always a good idea to get the facts of the case wrong in your tweet calling for the Department of Justice to review the facts of the case

His father and grandmother live in that town. He worked in that town. What the hell are you talking about, Jerry?

He didn't cross state lines with a weapon. How hard is that to understand?

So you're concerned about people crossing state lines and committing violence?

If you need another reason to vote Republican in 2022, here it is. What about Grosskreutz crossing state lines, or are we going to conveniently sweep that under the rug? Riots are not protests, point-blank.

Do better! “armed persons crossing state lines” still pushing this misinformation?! Really?! There is no evidence presented that he was armed when he went to his father’s house in WI! It is believed the firearm was at the father’s if you have evidence to the contrary, prove it!

You are an idiot and a true threat to America

Aren't you the guy who poops his pants on national television and believes ANTIFA is a myth?
Have a seat.
