Law firm for teenager accused of Kenosha killings has represented Trump lawyer Giuliani - 2020-08-28
(Reuters) - The 17-year-old accused of killing two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has hired a law firm whose clients have included President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and former Trump adviser Carter Page.
John Pierce told Reuters on Thursday that he and colleagues at Pierce Bainbridge would obtain justice for Kyle Rittenhouse, of Illinois, arrested and charged with shooting three people on Tuesday night, two of whom died.
A civil litigator, Pierce tweeted on Thursday that he would soon be joined by "a SEAL Team" of former assistant U.S. attorneys who are now criminal defense attorneys. Pierce will appear with Rittenhouse at an extradition hearing in Lake County Circuit Court in Illinois on Friday.
