CLAY: All counts, Kyle Rittenhouse served, he just collapsed, crying, Kyle Rittenhouse did in the courtroom, all five charges not guilty. He’s now embracing his attorney, still crying in the courthouse, overcome with emotion. This means for everybody out there, this case is forever over .
BUCK: It means justice survived in America. It means that self-defense is a real thing. It means that there is some hope you can get a real trial in this country even when the leftist mob wants to come after you. Clay, if I could do a backflip, I would do a backflip because, God bless America, this kid got justice, despite the leftist mob, despite all the insanity and all the threats and all the media lies, he goes home a free man, not guilty on all charges. Never has to sit through this nightmare again. It’s a great day, folks, a great day in America.
CLAY: I agree. I think we have to commend the jury which has been under immense pressure, four days of deliberations. I’m sure there will be stories that will be written about exactly what was said during the course of this process. Maybe we should go back. The judge is addressing the courtroom right now and see if we can pick up what he’s saying.
THE COURT: They have been allowed to present presentations to you that you’ll get in writing and it’s entirely up to you whether you want to contact them. They are not to contact you. If anyone does contact you and just tell them you’re not interested in discussing it, if that’s the case. And if anyone persists in doing so, report that to us and it will be addressed, I assure you.
At the beginning of the trial, there was some concern about information and your safety. And I assure you that we will take every measure to ensure that that is — your concerns are addressed and respected. And I’m gonna talk to you for just a minute not about anything to do with the case, but just about that sole issue. And, as I say, you’re welcome to discuss the case as little or as much as you want. Any questions, anybody? Thank you so much.
CLAY: Judge Schroeder is addressing right now the jury and letting them know basically what obligations and responsibilities they have going forward.
Now, not guilty on all charges, Buck. The question is, what is going to happen now in Kenosha? Will there be sort of spasms of anger? That there was any need for the 500 National Guard troops who’ve been called out by the governor of Wisconsin to preserve order? What will the scene be like in Kenosha, Wisconsin, as a result of this verdict which for those of you getting in your car just released, Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin, not guilty on all five charges? This case is over.
BUCK: We’ll come back to more on this in a moment, the aftermath of this trial, justice done here, folks. We were a little worried there for a couple days, but justice done.
CLAY: We are reacting in real time as Kyle Rittenhouse has been found not guilty on all charges. Makes me feel good as a lawyer in the American judicial system, that these 12 jurors listened to the facts in the case. They were not led astray by all of the lies in the media, by all of the attacks on Kyle Rittenhouse, including the president of the United States, who called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist in the presidential campaign. Disgraceful performance by Joe Biden, disgraceful by many people, frankly, at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, all of whom proclaimed Kyle Rittenhouse was guilty.
Our judicial system never has been and never will be perfect because it is created by men. And everything that men create is flawed. But we have the greatest judicial system in the history of the world. And based on all the facts that were presented to this jury in this case, they got the right result. They were willing to stand up for truth and justice, even in the face of potential mob response and attacks on them.
Buck, in conjunction with the election results that we saw a couple of weeks ago, I feel like America is coming to its senses and that truth and justice still matter, they still reign supreme, and that facts ultimately determine outcomes, not emotion and not crazy lies spread by left-wing propagandists.
BUCK: This is enormously consequential because if there had been — and we saw all the information, all the evidence, everything put forward here. It was clearly self-defense, so much so that you’ll recall, and Clay I’ve been saying this now for weeks — my initial position was they never should have even brought charges. We shouldn’t have Kyle Rittenhouse facing life in prison at trial, that that alone was an abuse.
CLAY: You saw the prosecutors here violating core principles of their profession, ethical standards thrown asunder. Why? Because the Democrat left wanted to make an example of Kyle Rittenhouse. They initially lied about him as a racist, including the actual now president of the United States who, back to Buck’s Biden principle, is a jerk. He’s not a good guy, folks. Just ’cause he says folksy a lot and just because he pretends that he rolls up his sleeves and cares about, you know, kitchen table issues, Joe Biden’s a jerk. He called him a white supremacist. He and many others in the Democrat media maligned this kid.
And the mob, the leftist mob was threatening this jury, was threatening this judge trying to pressure injustice to occur with violence in the background, after the left created the violence of Kenosha in the first place. And the system held. That’s what everybody can at least take some comfort or solace in today.
BUCK: It’s not over, folks. We still have a crazy left wing anarchist BLM movement in this country that wants to kick us apart, that wants to kick at the load-bearing walls of our civilization. But, Clay, there is still such a thing in America, even in politically charged cases, as self-defense, as standing athwart the mob and yelling, “This is a line you shall not cross.” That is really meaningful.
CLAY: I think it’s massively important. And, Buck, don’t mistake what message this also sends to other prosecutors across the country. They believed that the tide of vigilantism and mob rule justified charges being brought in the Kyle Rittenhouse case.
This will give pause — I really do believe this — to other prosecutors that are looking at cases that might be somewhat similar to this in the future to recognize that juries are willing and able to stand up against all of this. And you know, they dropped the one charge on gun possession, but to run the table and go not guilty on all five counts is remarkable.
And I just commend the bravery of these jurors, none of whom we know, for doing their duty as Americans and getting us to the right place here with this result.
BERENSON: What was behind this sudden coordinated global panic? Certainly, it looks to me like it was the boosters.
BUCK: In no way, shape, or form was this accidental, something that just happens, spur of the moment.
CLAY: I'm curious whether Arizona State is going to be willing to stand up to students that are demanding that Kyle Rittenhouse be kicked out of school.
BUCK: The Messiah of science is that evil little Smurf walking around in his lab coat.
CLAY: We have got bans on African travel, which we were all told was wildly racist when Donald Trump did them.
