Kyle Rittenhouse’s former lawyers both want his $2 million bail money

A divisive lawyer who helped raise money for Kyle Rittenhouse‘s legal defense wants $2 million of it back after the trial for the Illinois teen, accused of killing two people and wounding another during protests in Kenosha last year.

No, it’s not John Pierce — though he wants some it of it too. It’s the lawyer who brought Pierce onto Rittenhouse’s early defense team, Atlanta defamation lawyer turned 2020 presidential election conspiracist Lin Wood.

About two weeks before the Aug. 25 violence in Kenosha, Wood and Pierce formed a Texas nonprofit called the #FightBack Foundation. Once they convinced the Rittenhouse family to trust his defense to them, they beat the social media bushes to the tune of around $2 million in funding for the case, with the donations channeled to #FightBack.

When his own serious financial troubles surfaced, Pierce says he stepped down from the foundation. When he bailed Rittenhouse out of jail in late November, he used a $2 million check drawn on his Los Angeles-based law firm.
