Gaige Grosskeutz, the Antifa-affiliated rioter who serves as the prosecution’s star witness in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, admitted under questioning by the defense that he was only fired upon by Rittenhouse after he had advanced on the teen, dropped his hands, and pointed his weapon at Rittenhouse.
“Now, you’d agree your firearm was pointed at Mr. Rittenhouse, correct?” defense lawyer Corey Chorafisi asked Grosskreutz as a still image from video footage of the shooting was shown to the courtroom, to which Grosskreutz responded, “Yes.”
When the witness disagreed with Chorafisi’s assertion that Rittenhouse only fired when Grosskreutz pointed his gun at the teen, the defense attorney asked him what he saw in the image. “That looks like my bicep being vaporized, yes,” the visibly emotional Grosskreutz admitted.
“And it’s being vaporized as you’re pointing your gun directly at him, yes?” the defense attorney pressed, drawing another affirmative admission from the witness. “Okay so, when you were standing three to five feet from him, with your arms up in the air, he never fired, right?” Chorafisi asked, drawing a “Correct” from Grosskreutz.
“It wasn’t until you pointed your gun at him, advanced on him, with your gun – now your hands down – pointed at him that he fired? Right?” Chorafisi asked. Grosskreutz responded, “Correct.”
At this point, the prosecution appeared to be devastated by this blow to their case, with the lead prosecutor holding his head in his hands.
