Yesterday, a person who claimed to be a producer for NBC News working under the supervision of someone with MSNBC in New York was caught tailing the bus taking the Rittenhouse jury from the courthouse to their secret parking area. Today, Judge Schroeder banned anyone associated with MSNBC from entering the courthouse for the remainder of the trial. The judge also said—
This is a very serious matter and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely it would go without much thinking that someone who is following the jury bus–that is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities for further action.
Certainly, the threat of doxing jurors could be considered a form of jury tampering. However, the prosecutor who would normally handle the case is the prosecutor trying to convict Kyle Rittenhouse and who has a potential interest in an unfair verdict. It will be interesting to see to whom the judge refers the matter.
