Kyle Rittenhouse defense attorney Mark Richards is taking aim at previous lawyers the Illinois youth hired to represent his defense, particularly internet conspiracy theorist and celebrity lawyer Lin Wood. Richards, speaking in a interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN, accused Wood and John Pierce of utilizing Kyle’s public profile to raise money.

Well, I had more worried about some of the other things that happened much earlier in this case. The Lin Woods, the John Pierces who were basically trying to I think whore this kid for money, for their own causes,” Richards said. “They kept him in Illinois to fight an extradition that was unwinnable cause they were raising tons of money on him.

Richards, who successfully argued for and secured Rittenhouse’s acquittal before the jury, also called Wood an “idiot” for arranging for Kyle to speak to the left-wing Washington Post before the homicide charges were adjudicated.

Before trial proceedings even ended, Lin Wood’s Fight Back legal firm tried to grab back the $2 million in bail funds well wishers had donated to secure Kyle’s release from jail to properly prepare for his trial. It goes without saying that these funds would be better utilized for pay for Kyle’s security and relocation needs, with the Illinois youth likely to incur significant expenses as he proceeds with a normal, everday life.

Kyle’s official representatives have expressed their distaste for Wood, accusing the internet celebrity of using the case to promote the discredited QAnon religion and ignoring his primary duty to provide Rittenhouse with quality representation. Wood supposedly disregarded instructions to place funds raised for Kyle’s bail and defense into a bank account controlled by Kyle’s mother.

Wood is facing disbarment proceedings in the state of Georgia, following statements urging for the execution of former Vice President Mike Pence and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts.

Richards revealed in the CNN interview that he’s counseled Kyle to be cautious of celebrity types seeking to cash in on Rittenhouse’s heroic reputation, warning him that future Wood figures will approach him in the future.
