Lin Wood, the attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse, issued a public threat to sue Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for a campaign video the candidate released Wednesday.

The video accuses President Trump of failing to condemn white supremacists, but includes footage of the 17-year-old Rittenhouse on the streets of Kenosha the night he fatally shot two protesters. There is no public evidence to support the notion that Rittenhouse is a white supremacist.

In a subsequent tweet, Wood specifically said that he will sue both Biden and the Biden/Harris campaign on libel charges.
