Corruption: State’s Atty for IL Caught in Lies Regarding Smollett Case

Jussie Smollett opened a new can of worms. And this one will likely ensnare more crooked Leftists who believe in the duality of the law.

There are rules for the common man that don’t apply to those connected to high-power Leftists.

Even former Obama Chief of Staff David Axelrod sees the hypocrisy:

Unless some better explanation surfaces, here’s the lesson of this weird turn in the Smollett case:
You can contrive a hate crime, make it a national news, get caught and-if you are a well-connected celebrity-get off for $10K and have your record expunged and files sealed.

But now the case shifts from Smollett, per se, to those who helped get him out of trouble.

Try to imagine the hubris one must have to believe you can sweep this story under the rug. And that’s what Kim Foxx attempted to do.

They plotted to seal the documents in the Smollett case. Apparently he got people like Michelle Obama to pull a few strings. Then, Foxx recanted, claiming to have inadvertently sealed the case.

But that’s not the only “moonwalking” Foxx now attempts.

As it turns out, Foxx hadn’t exactly recused herself as reported. As ABC Chicago explains:

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx defended her office’s decision to drop all charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, who was accused of staging a racist and homophobic attack on himself.

“I believe this is a just outcome based on the circumstances,” Foxx said on Wednesday, a day after the charges were dropped.

In an interview on Wednesday, she said the practice of dropping charges in exchange for community service and restitution is not uncommon for the Class 4 felonies that Smollett was charged with.

“We believe that the facts were sufficient to charge and try Mr. Smollett for the crimes,” Foxx said.

While a court did not find him guilty, she said: “Based on the facts and the evidence that was presented in the charging decision that was made by this office, this office believed that they could prove him guilty.”

Foxx had recused herself from the case a week prior to Smollett being charged when it appeared that the actor had gone from victim to suspect. She recused herself after speaking with a “relative” of Smollett, but not Smollett himself. Foxx said it is not uncommon for her to speak to victims and their families.

“The family had reached out, I think to me, largely because they didn’t have a connection to the police department, asking if there was a way to make sure that the leaks in the case were to a minimum,” Foxx said.

Foxx added: “I don’t want any speculation or concern, I don’t even want the appearance, that my involvement with this case, now having talked to a family member, would in any way impede this investigation.”

Here is where the Obama connection occurred. Because like her husband, Michelle Obama interfered in a crime,

She [Foxx] was connected to the family through Tina Tchen, the former chief of staff to Michelle Obama.

In a statement, Tchen said: “I know members of the Smollett family based on prior work together. Shortly after Mr. Smollett reported he was attacked, as a family friend, I contacted Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who I also know from prior work together. My sole activity was to put the chief prosecutor in the case in touch with an alleged victim’s family who had concerns about how the investigation was being characterized in public.”  (read more)

How the investigation was being characterized in public? She means the initial sham of an “investigation” whereby Chicago PD treated Smollett as a victim?

In other words, the hoax.

What Tchen attempted to do was persuade the public to believe the most nonsensical story next to the Steele dossier.
