After this testimony, the question is no longer “Is this self-defense?” but “How the heck did this ever get to trial?”

Gaige Grosskreutz was the man that was shot in the arm by Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha riots in August 2020.

Here is video of Grosskreutz immediately after he was shot. (WARNING: GRAPHIC)

The prosecution is trying to make Grosskreutz into a credible and sympathetic witness by highlighting that he is an EMT and was afraid that he feared for his life.

Unfortunately for the prosecution, Grosskreutz was under oath and would be cross-examined.

According to National File, Grosskreutz is a convicted burglar and has “affiliation” with communist groups.

As noted earlier, Grosskreutz was armed but his permit to carry his gun had expired.

Gee… Kinda weird that Grosskreutz wasn’t charged for illegally carrying a firearm.

Under cross-examination, Grosskreutz admits that Rittenhouse didn’t fire until he approached and pointed his handgun at him.

He also admitted that he pulled out his gun to protect his own life.

While Grosskreutz continues to say that he’s a loving, wonderful person who would never take a life, there’s this small issue of a Facebook post that says otherwise…

After Grosskreutz was shot in the arm, a friend of his posted a photo to Facebook, and in the comment thread, wrote, “I just talked to Gaige Grosskreutz toohis[sic] only regret was not killing the kid and hesitating to pull the gun before emptying the entire mag into him.”

Grosskreutz then admits that he was advancing with his gun pointed at Kyle Rittenhouse — who had just been attacked with a skateboard and had a crowd going after him — when he was shot.

Grosskreutz has a financial interest in the testimony — he has a lawsuit against the city and county of Kenosha, Wisconsin for $10 million.

If that’s not damning enough, footage that was filmed by Grosskreutz shows that after the shooting of Rosenbaum, Rittenhouse was heading toward the police.

Several conservative journalists including Human Events senior editor and podcast host Jack Posobiec, videographer for Townhall.com Julio Rosas, and New York Post journalist Eddie Scarry, were live-tweeting during the trial and showed just how awful Grosskreutz is as a witness.

On Thursday, Richie McGinnis, a videographer for The Daily Caller, was a witness for both the prosecution and the defense, but he completely dismantled the prosecution’s case.

Here is the prosecutor questioning McGinnis:

Here is Reuters covering McGinnis’s testimony.

It’s important to note that Richie McGinnis was so close that he was the man who pulled his shirt off and tried to give medical assistance to Joseph Rosenbaum, the first man shot by Rittenhouse. Rosenbaum had threatened the group that Rittenhouse was with saying that if he got one of them alone, he would kill them. Rosenbaum was shot after he chased Rittenhouse.

This really looks like an open and shut case of self-defense. It seems like it made it to trial solely due to political reasons.
