An MSNBC journalist was pulled over by cops for following a bus transporting jurors assigned to the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, it has been revealed.
James Joseph Morrison, a 62-year-old freelancer who told police he was with MSNBC and NBC News, was stopped by officers while he trailed a the bus, which contained members of the Rittenhouse jury, on November 17.
That saw him accused of potential jury interference. His woke network was among liberal media outlets left outraged by Rittenhouse's acquittal for killing two BLM supporters during an anti-police riot, in what jurors agreed was a clear case of self-defense.
Just a day later on November 18, Morrison was barred from the trial by Judge Bruce Schroeder, when jurors were on their third day of deliberating whether Rittenhouse should be convicted of five felony charges for killing two people and injuring a third back in last August, according to the Daily Beast.
The 18-year-old was acquitted of all charges the following day on November 19.
Bodycam footage of the incident, posted by Law & Order, shows an officer as he asks Morrison why he was following the vehicle.
