Cook County (Illinois) States Attorney Kim Foxx asked Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to turn the Jusse Smollett case over to the FBI before he was even charged !!!

NBC got some juicy emails per a FOIA request.

And it seems Foxx was "talking" to a former Chief of Staff to Michelle Obama who said she knows the Smollett family!!!

Foxx recused herself shortly afterwards.

Now we in fact see some political BS going on behind the scenes 😆



Jussie Smollett Update: Texts, Emails Reveal Foxx Asked Johnson to Turn Investigation Over to FBI

New documents showing text messages and email chains revealed Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx's asked Supt. Eddie Johnson to turn the Jussie Smollett investigation over to the FBI before she recused herself from the case.

The documents, obtained Wednesday by NBC 5 via a Freedom of Information Act request, show correspondence between Foxx, an unknown person and Tina Tchen, a one-time assistant to former President Barack Obama and Chief of Staff to Michelle Obama.

In an email, Tchen said she knows the Smollett family and said they "have concerns about the investigation" into his alleged hate crime attack, which police now say was hoax staged to boost his career.


In Chicago, politics and crime mix well"

The only reason to turn this over to the FBI is if they can hand this clown a more severe sentence than the state.

erm...

Justice for Jussie just took a whole new meaning!

Justice... let's get some!

Interesting ties to interesting people...

It's going to be fun to see where this goes.

And how people spin it on the left.

I wonder why Foxx wanted the FBI to head up the investigation rather than CPD?

Whomever Foxx was speaking to considered the possibility of the FBI taking over a, "huge victory."

 


Edited to add:

I also noticed that Foxx was in DC on Feb 1, Florida on Feb 12, and we also know she was at the Oscars. She sure does travel out of town a lot for being a Cook county attorney.

I think the FBI is doing a great job for a liberal left leaning organization.

Depending on the dates of the correspondence, she may have been pushing for the FBI because she actually thought the case had merit... getting the FBI involved would be the icing on the cake politically. Can't have a hate crime of that magnitude being prosecuted by local cops.

Of course, it doesn't say much about her intelligence if she thought the case made a lick of sense, but that is another discussion.

Maybe they are using the FBI so they can alter a few things in his favor.. CPD is just as/more corrupt though so it doesn't matter. The fbi will get his phone, then say "what text messages"?

Could be she wanted to give it to the FBI so she wouldn't have to take heat from her Chicago friends for prosecuting Smollett.

Well the fbi is investigating his terror powder in hate letter hoax.
More felony charges.

Nahh, Kim Foxx is corrupt and wasn't pushing this to the FBI for harder charges.. she was doing this, because once the FBI got their hands on this, they could alter things to help get Jussie off.. Jussie is close with the Obamas, Kamala Harris, and many other left leaning politicians.. I actually heard rumors Jussie is related to Kamala Harris.. and Kamala Harris had a hand in Foxx getting the states attorney job in Chicago, submitting recommendations and what not, supporting her along the way.. its all tied together

Wrong. The reason to hand it over to the FBI is because the FBI is corrupt and in their pocket,but I'm sure you already knew that.

No. The reason was most likely so they could bury it and ensure Smollett never faced any charges.
Smollett needs to get jail time - he needs to be made an example of to discourage other lunatics.

The scary thing is that if the Jeffmeister had been a little smarter, and detail oriented, he would have gotten away with his charade.

I wonder what Jacob Wohl and his fake death threat, made by himself, is going to get him in Minneapolis. So he sent himself a death threat and then reported it to the Minn. police department.

It's a plea to the charges.

I expect the defense to do their best to try and undermine the credibility of the brothers in any way possible in order to make Jussie look like a victim.

 


Edited to add:


Geragos raised questions on his “Reasonable Doubt” podcast about what happened while the brothers were in custody.

“Did you charge them? Did you give them immunity? Did you do anything with them?” he asked. “You said they changed their story in the 48th hour — why did they change their story? Was it lawyer-driven?”

A person with knowledge of internal discussions among Smollett’s defense team told TheWrap that they believe the brothers made a last-minute deal to avoid charges.

Gloria Schmidt, an attorney for the brothers, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Geragos said police had a stronger case against the brothers than against Smollett. “I have not seen anything that supports this idea or the narrative that they put out there that he was in cahoots with anyone. They have a whale of a case against the two guys — the two brothers — but that’s it,” he said.

Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Lou Shapiro, who is not involved in the case, said Smollett’s team can argue that any deal casts doubt on the brothers’ credibility.

“Clearly some deal was struck, or some promise was made to them to tell the story and maybe it was a coerced confession in some way,” Shapiro said. “Maybe it wasn’t a deal, maybe they just felt so coerced and pressured that they had to tell the story just to get out, right? That’s another angle.”

The defense can't do a lot to make Jussie look good, so they will do everything they can to make the witnesses and police look bad.

To me this just means if found guilty, then the sentence should be whatever the MAX is, he wants to double down on stupid, he can deal with the consequences. If found guilty they need to hit him hard to shutdown stupid stunts like this moving forward, even more so if he doesn't want to admit it and take responsibility...something the snowflakes never do.

I have to agree, given the total loss of FBI's reputation I wouldn't trust them to investigate a flea bite.

They have a very long way to go before the American people should even consider listening to what they have to say. At this point, the best right option would be to replace them with a private company who is accountable to shareholders and beholden to their contracts (and easily terminated at will, vs. "for cause")

The days of government walking the thin line between Constitutional/treasonous (AKA Unconstitutional) are over. They walk that line as a matter of policy, with absolute impunity and never any personal severe consequences. Such events should be completely accidental (and the burden of proof should be on them to prove it was accidental) and of such rarity that they can be measured by the 100 year mark. Instead, they walk this line as a matter of policy while their puppet treasonous rubber stamp illegitimate courts rubber stamp their actions and further erode our rights.

The United States Constitution - VOID where prohibited by law

= high treason = ....a rope

And Smollet? He deserves to spend a decade or so in prison for what he did. Once again, some snowflake sets race relations back another 20-30 years. Instead of putting effort into those relations, he (and those like him) would rather continue to exploit the deep divisions for their own personal, financial or political gain.
