And the plot thickens…
This story screams of favoritism and privilege – and the liberal media doesn’t seem to care.
According to Chicago PD and and Asst. State Attorney Joe Magats, there is enough evidence to prosecute Jussie Smollett.
So why has the Cook County State Attorney’s Office, under Kim Foxx, dropped all 16 charges and sealed all records? It’s a very valid question, and the city of Chicago is demanding answers.
According to news reports, she didn’t even contact Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s officer or the Chicago PD before announcing her decision to let the celebrity liar go free.
Kim Foxx has recused herself from the case, but somehow the decision to let Smollett go free came from her office. Only AFTER Smollett’s charges were dropped did the Asst. State’s Attorney decide to come out and say he was guilty.
Tina Tchen, a former chief of staff for First Lady Michelle Obama, made phone calls along with Kimm Foxx to Chicago PD and to the Cook County State’s office asking for the investigation to be handed over to the FBI.
In a text message she sent to State Attorney Foxx, she said, “I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollet and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation.”
Foxx emailed Tchen the same day, saying, “Spoke to the Superintendent [Eddie] Johnson” and that she had “convinced him to reach out to the FBI to ask that they take over the investigation.”
According to reports, Foxx also sent a message to a Smollet family member saying the same thing.
The Smollet family member said, “OMG this would be a huge victory.”
Foxx replied, “make no guarantees, but I’m trying.”
A victory? Wow.
When was the last time a person charged with 16 felony counts got a former First Lady’s Chief of Staff to call a State Attorney’s Office official and request favors?
Laura Ingraham of “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News had this to say during interviews, while presenting the facts of the case to her audience:
It wasn’t too long ago that the media jumped the gun and blamed Trump for the hoax hate crime without any evidence.
Here’s a tweet from socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, talking about the “attack” on Smollett without offering any supporting facts:
There is no such thing as “racially charged.”
This attack was not “possibly” homophobic. It was a racist and homophobic attack.
If you don’t like what is happening to our country, then work to change it. It is no one’s job to water down or sugar-coat the rise of hate crimes. https://t.co/QAi0IYtSeR

The mainstream media even attacked Covington Catholic High School students, who they wrongly smeared, accusing them of being racist because some of them were wearing “MAGA” hats. Of course, we know how that ended.
The liberal media should be demanding justice – justice for those whose lives will be in jeopardy if a true hate crime happened in Chicago.
Jussie Smollet’s hate crime hoax cost the city of Chicago thousands of dollars in resources and manpower.
Should Jussie Smollett be forced to pay back the cost of the investigation?
