Mark Richards, an attorney on Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense team, says he believes the judge delivered a fair trial.

“I’ve never seen so much made of so little,” he said about criticism of the judge.

“Judge Schroeder gives you a fair trial as a defendant,” he said. “You don’t want him to sentence your client.”

“But in this case, we were looking for a fair trial and if we lost we knew what was going to happen… so I would rather have a fair trial.”

“I thought he gave us a fair trial,” he added. “…So I think it’s a good system. You know, I’ve got a trial in front of him, you know, a big case, and maybe in that one, I’ll think he’s unfair, but he’s a fair judge.”

Joe Biden also responded to the verdict by saying, “I just heard a moment ago” that the jury reached a verdict. “I didn’t watch the trial,” Biden added.

Biden was asked about his past comments equating Rittenhouse to a white supremacist, but Biden didn’t directly answer.

“Look, I stand by what the jury has concluded,” Biden said. “The jury system works, and we have to abide by it.”

“I say that was expected because we know who Kyle is, and we know what was in his heart and what was in his head, and we know the facts of this case. But, of course everybody was really anxious because at the end of the day, you just, you ultimately don’t know what a jury is thinking,” spokesperson David Hancock said.

Hancock also said he believed that “the jury was thoughtful and they understood the gravity of this decision.”

“Now, the goal is going to be to ensure Kyle’s safety as he moves on as a 18-year-old young man in college studying to be a nurse,” Hancock said. “Those are his plans moving forward.”

As for the Rittenhouse family, Hancock said, “They are doing well right now. they’re in an undisclosed location and they are, they are a family and everybody is just ecstatic.”

Asked about the call for protests following today’s verdict, Hancock said, “The family calls for calm. Calls for calm. I mean, this was not an injustice.”

“What I would say is, this is an inflection point, I think, for the country to look at the way things have been handled. Things have gone off the rails in relation to who Kyle is and why he was down here. It’s never been about politics. It’s not about race. This is about a young man who fled and felt as if his life was in danger and defended himself,” he added.
