Kenosha protest shooter Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all state charges on Friday after four days of jury deliberations.

The defendant stood trial after fatally shooting two people and wounding a third with an AR-15 rifle during "Black Lives Matter" protests in Kenosha on August 25, 2020.

Republicans praised the jury for finding Rittenhouse not guilty of first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, and first-degree recklessly endangering safety.

Disgraced Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) said he would arm wrestle Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to see who would claim the 18-year-old as an intern.


Gaetz told Newsmax on Wednesday night that he wanted to hire Rittenhouse. "Kyle Rittenhouse would probably make a pretty good congressional intern," the congressman said. "We may reach out to him and see if he'd be interested in helping the country in additional ways."
