The Chicago Police union is asking that an investigation be launched against Prosecutor Kim Foxx, alleging that she tried to interfere in the investigation, by passing it off to the FBI.
Foxx was acting on a request from Tina Tchen, who was a former chief of staff to Michelle Obama and later, an aide to Barack Obama. Tchen wanted the investigation turned over to the FBI, possibly where she has friends in the Deep State? Tchen is a relative of Jussie Smollett.
Fox tried to convince the police superintendent in the case to turn the investigation over to the FBI and when it wasn’t she recused herself.
Smollett is accused of staging a “hate crime” outside his Chicago apartment in the early morning hours of January 29, 2019. Smollett claimed to have been assaulted by two white men who beat him, tied a noose around his neck, and splashed him with bleach, before yelling “This is MAGA country” and running off.
After an intense investigation involving at least a dozen Chicago Police Department officers, CPD announced that they believed Smollett orchestrated the attack with the help of two friends, brothers he’d met on the set of his hit television show.
Smollett was charged with “disorderly conduct,” but only after Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx recused herself for reasons that went unspecified until last week.
“[Cook County State’s Attorney Kim] Foxx recused herself late in the investigation, but only after she intervened in the case by asking Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson to turn the investigation over to the FBI at the request of a Smollett relative and a former Obama administration official, according to newly-released emails and text messages,” CWB Chicago reported.
