The mother of Kyle Rittenhouse suggested Saturday that her attorneys are considering a lawsuit against President Joe Biden for allegedly associating her son with white supremacy.
What are the details?
During an interview on Fox News' "Fox & Friends," Wendy Rittenhouse was asked if the Rittenhouse team plans to take any action against powerful Americans — including Biden — for "interfering in the justice system" and "defaming" the 18-year-old Rittenhouse.
The elder Rittenhouse had a six word response.
"Our lawyers are gonna handle that," Wendy Rittenhouse responded.

In 2020, then-presidential candidate Biden tweeted a video of alleged examples of white supremacy with audio from a presidential debate between Biden and then-President Donald Trump. The video included an image of Rittenhouse.
"There's no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night," Biden tweeted on Sept. 30, 2020.
During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday, Wendy Rittenhouse explained what she felt when she saw Biden's tweet.
"When I saw that, I was shocked," she said. "I was angry. President Biden don't know my son whatsoever, and he's not a white supremacist. He's not a racist. And [Biden] did that for the votes. And I was so angry for a while at him and what he did to my son. He defamed him."
What about the verdict?
Of course, Rittenhouse told Fox News she is hoping for — and expecting — a not guilty verdict.
"I'm hoping that the outcome is what I expect: a not guilty verdict," she explained. "But I know a lot of people out there wants (sic) my son to be guilty."
"It's in the hands of the jury, and watching them, they've been taking notes, listening to the truth, and I hope they take that into what the outcome is going to be — not from the media, not from the president of the United States, not from celebrities, not from athletes: It's about the truth," she continued.
Wendy Rittenhouse also said she believes Judge Bruce Schroeder has been "fair."
