Judge Yells At Rittenhouse Prosecutor As Defense Threatens Mistrial: “I was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant’s silence”

The judge in Kyle Rittenhouse’s just berated the prosecution for ignoring one of his earlier rules while the defense lawyer warned that he would call for a mistrial with prejudice if the hapless prosecutor tried it again.

Judge Schroeder said: “You are already, I was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant’s silence. I don’t know what you’re up to. It’s not admissible, and none of this is frankly.

Binger: “Your honor there have been things in this case, testimony in this case that I believe” opened the door to this line of questioning.”

From Fox News:

The judge overseeing the Kyle Rittenhouse trial over his questioning — and accuses Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger of committing a “grave constitutional” error by choosing to stay silent before Wednesday’s testimony.

Circuit Court Judge Bruce E. Schroeder stops the prosecutor as he moves to object a comment from Rittenhouse, who was describing why he wanted the gun he chose to ask his friend to purchase. 

Defense attorney Mark Richards threatens to ask for a mistrial with prejudice is Binger continues his line of question, which is forbidden.

Judge Schroeder raises his voice to prosecution while reprimanding them over their line of questioning pertaining to Rittenhouse’s use of the gun and his knowledge of the law as it pertained to his use of the gun.

During his cross-examination, Binger repeatedly asks about Rittenhouse’s age and the possession and purchase of his gun.
