Soros financed Chicago DA, Kim Foxx could be in a world of hurt. She may pay a heavy price for dropping all the charges against Jussie Smollett.
She was in contact with Tina Tchen, Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff and a member of Smollett’s family and she said that she would try to help them out. George Soros spent $408,000 to get her elected and it would be a shame if she got tossed out of office and into a cell, now wouldn’t it? But, she has few allies.
Even the women on the view are angry over her decision to drop the charges.
John Yoo: This is why we have a US Justice Department. OK, so maybe they just spent a lot of time investigating President Trump to no good effect, but now they actually exist to make sure there is no corruption going on in state government. If you look at the details of this case where Mrs. Obama’s chief of staff calls the prosecutor Kim Foxx and all of the sudden these machinations occur and then the case gets dropped.
That is exactly what the Justice Department is supposed to be involved in, to make sure there is no corruption in state government. I hope that President Trump is right and that the FBI is starting an investigation to look into this.
Laura Ingraham: What’s the potential criminal exposure here, both for Foxx and the state’s attorney office itself?
John Yoo:So Foxx could be potentially liable of what is called mail wire fraud of depriving citizens of their honest services, which if she is convicted, this is the standard law that is used to go after corrupt state officials… the maximum sentence is 20 years in prison.
