Jussie Smollett Case Prosecutor Slams Chicago Mayor & Top Cop

Jussie Smollett Case Prosecutor Slams Chicago Mayor & Top Cop

"FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago", Trump said.

Chicago Police opened an investigation on January 29, after Empire actor Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist attack.

The statement also praised "progressive prosecutor" Kim Foxx for recusing herself from the case, comparing her decision to that of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who "also did the right thing when he recused himself from the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign". The dismissal drew an immediate rebuke from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson.

Abel Osundairo (L), and his brother Ola Osundairo, the Nigerian brothers were arrested in connection with the alleged attack on "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett but were released after reportedly telling detectives Smollett paid them to stage the attack. "He has cost Chicago a lot more than a $10,000 bond".

The union made sure to tell the public they were aligning their endorsement with the world's largest police union, National Fraternal Order of Police, who faced backlash for also supporting Trump. "Smollett should not be able to get anything more from the City of Chicago or IL".

"We must separate the people at whom we are angry from the people of whom we are afraid", she wrote.

But surely NO ONE is pulling for Smollett to take home a trophy in light of his embarrassingly obvious and shameful guilt, right? These actions left the executives in the sketch no choice but to tell him they had to fire him, to which he responded, "I made this show". "I've been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one".

State House Republican Leader Jim Durkin asked the IL attorney general's office in a letter to "complete a thorough review of the prosecution and sentencing determination in the Smollett investigation". Many of his nay sayers hope this will bring new felony charges and a trial that may possibly mirror what the first case should have.
