Attorney and Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz slammed CNN and the New Yorker as "the real vigilantes" in the Rittenhouse case for "convicting" him before the trial. Dershowitz made these remarks before the jury found Rittenhouse not-guilty on all counts.

During an interview with Breitbart's Joel Pollak on the SiriusXM show, Dershowitz said he believed that the 18-year-old should be acquitted on murder charges for fatally shooting two and injuring a third during the mayhem in Kenosha last year.

He also denounced left-wing media for trying and convicting Rittenhouse in the court of public view, while supporters of Rittenhouse faced Black Lives Matter protestors outside of the courthouse on Tuesday during jury deliberations.

"CNN and some of the other TV stations have become vigilantes," he said. "They're the vigilantes, not Rittenhouse. They're the ones who want to put not the thumb, but the elbow on the scale of justice. They want to influence the outcome of this case."

As their discussions began hidden from public view, protesters came to the courthouse.

Rittenhouse faces charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless murder, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, and two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety.

Dershowitz condemned media outlets for interfering in the case without legal grounds and claimed that Rittenhouse truly believed his life was in jeopardy and acted in self-defense.

"And there are others who are threatening violence if there is anything but convictions in this case, as they threatened violence in previous cases and will in subsequent cases unless something is done about it. It's The New Yorker and CNN that are the vigilantes. They're the ones who are trying to influence justice without regard to evidence or the law," Dershowitz went on to say.

Dershowitz claimed that there was no concrete evidence to convict Rittenhouse. He likened his situation to that of infamous New York subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz, who shot four young black men in 1984, only to be acquitted of murder charges on self-defense grounds.

"He [Rittenhouse] should be acquitted. There shouldn't even be - the jury should not be even able to consider the attempted murder of the guy who admitted on the witness stand he pointed a gun at him before was shot in the shoulder. That is a clear case of self-defense, no doubt about it, and it should never go to the jury," Dershowitz said.
