Mark Richards, an Attorney Kyle RittenhouseOn Friday, he said that he had thrown Tucker Carlson’s film crew “out of the room several times” while it was chronicling the caseOne of these is Fox News personality’s “Originals” series on Fox Nation.

“The people who were raising the money to pay for the experts and to pay for the attorneys were trying to raise money and that was part of it,” Richards explained. “So, I think … I don’t want to say an evil, but a definite distraction was part of it. And I didn’t approve of it, but I’m not always the boss.”

Rittenhouse’s defense was crowdfunded through donations, Richards told Cuomo. He was accompanied by his family, and his adviser.

Cuomo asked Richards if he was worried Rittenhouse “was becoming an agent of animus.”

“I mean, Fox News is one thing. I used to work there,” Cuomo acknowledged. “Tucker Carlson is a different animal. In the political dialogue, you know exactly what he is talking about. Were you worried that Rittenhouse was going to become a stooge of that fringe of our political spectrum?”

“I had a talk with Kyle. All I can say is what I say,” responded Richards. “And Kyle’s going to have some hard choices in his life about the direction he goes and what he stands for. Those will have to be made by Kyle eventually.”
