Discover, one of the nation's top credit card issuers, told Forbes it has blocked its users' ability to make any donations on the Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo which has raised more than $380,000 for accused Kenosha teen shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, who has garnered support from the far-right as a national debate rages on vigilante justice.

In emails Wednesday and Thursday, the credit card company said it "terminated that merchant for operating regulation violations," adding, "we regularly review merchants for operating regulations violations; turning off merchants for violations is a typical process for us, but one we don't make public."

Discover declined to detail what the GiveSendGo.com violation was, but added "we appreciate that terminating this merchant acceptance agreement may be an inconvenience to a small number of our customers; Discover makes no judgment about customer's use of their funds; as a payments processor, we ... terminate acceptance only in instances in which they're found to be in violation of our operating regulations."
