(NewsNation Now) — Kyle Rittenhouse is opening up days after a verdict felt around the country. At 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday on NewsNation, Ashleigh Banfield will interview Kyle Rittenhouse in a way no one has done it yet.

He’ll discuss his trial, his life, and what happened the night he shot three men in self-defense, killing two of them. Ashleigh, on her show “Banfield,” will come with her questions but will also ask questions from NewsNation viewers.

You can submit a question ahead of time for Banfield to ask during the show. Also unlike any interview of Rittenhouse so far, Banfield will air the entire interview unedited and uninterrupted.

Banfield is a veteran court reporter. She has consistently covered the Rittenhouse trial on her primetime show, “Banfield.”

Rittenhouse killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, now 27, in Kenosha, Wisconsin during a night of protests after police shot Jacob Blake in 2020.

In his trial, his defense team successfully argued Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense. He was acquitted on five charges ranging from endangering safety to murder. He could have gone to prison for the rest of his life if he was convicted.

Critics of the decision have argued that Rittenhouse created the danger himself by showing up to a volatile situation with a gun. During the trial, Rittenhouse said he was there to protect his community from looters. Though he lives in Illinois, his father lives in Kenosha.
