breaking news! DHS documents leak! Trump directing DHS to defend Kyle Rittenhouse! and how to talk with reporters about kyle!
[link to www.forbes.com (secure)]


Department of Homeland Security officials were told to express public comments that would portray Kyle Rittenhouse—the 17-year-old charged with shooting three people, two of them fatally, at a protest during a standoff between militia members and protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin—in a positive light, NBC reports, a further indication of the Trump administration’s reluctance to condemn alleged right-wing violence and the politicization of the Rittenhouse case within the federal government, despite the events being part of an ongoing investigation. 


NBC News obtained internal DHS talking points that show officials were directed to defend Rittenhouse in the aftermath of the alleged shooting, including that the teenager “took his rifle to the scene of the rioting to help defend small business owners.”


It’s not clear whether the documents came from within DHS or the White House, but the talking points echo President Trump’s rhetoric, ordering officials to convey a need for “law and order.”

Even as the talking points stress for officials to say they can’t comment on an ongoing investigation, it tells them to paint a picture of the situation that may leave out key details, including that Rittenhouse “was seen being chased and attacked by rioters before allegedly shooting three of them, killing two.”

The documents also order officials to stress Rittenhouse is “innocent until proven guilty” and “deserves a fair trial based on all the facts, not just the ones that support a certain narrative,” when they are asked by a reporter to comment on the shootings.

Fascinating.

Your thread title accuses Trump, yet the article segment you provide explicitly states the opposite.

$1.50 (it's not even worth $3.50)
