Chicago FOP Asking For Federal Investigation Of City Prosecutor’s ‘Interference’ In Jussie Smollett Case

Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police (FOP)  is asking for a federal investigation into whether Kim Foxx, the Cook County State’s Attorney, tried to interfere into the department’s investigation of “Empire” star Jussie Smollett on behalf of a former Obama administration official.  Are you kidding me?

According to CWB Chicago, Chicago’s police union requested the investigation in a letter to John R. Lausch, the U.S. Attorney in Chicago on Monday.

From The Daily Wire:

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.

It never made any sense that there was talk about handing the case over to the federal government.  In fact, the only thing that made sense about it is that with the knowledge of how corrupted the deep state became under Obama, the Obama people probably have some folks still inside the DOJ who would go easy on Smollett the same way they went easy on another criminal, Obama’s former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Foxx corresponded with Tina Tchen, a lawyer and former chief of staff to First Lady Michelle Obama who also worked as an aide to President Obama himself.  A series of emails and text messages were obtained by the Chicago NBC affiliate.

Inside the correspondence, Tchen told Foxx that Smollett’s family “have concerns about the investigation” of two white Trump supporters who attacked Smollett outside his Chicago apartment building in January.  Foxx replied that she “spoke to the superintendent” and was “trying to figure out logistics,” and later revealed that she thought she convinced Johnson “to reach out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation.”  So, the Smollett family was worried about local police looking into Jussie’s crimes and wanted the feds to take over.

A relative of Smollett said in the text messages, “OMG this would be a huge victory.”  To them, it’s about helping Jussie get away with his crimes.  Personally, I think what Smollett did the lowest of the low.  He smeared over 60 million Trump voters and created more tension between the races.  He is a piece of garbage who deserves everything he gets from the justice system.

Fortunately, Johnson is a man of integrity and didn’t turn the case over to the federal government.  Foxx eventually recused herself, and a deputy state’s attorney issued an official charge of “disorderly conduct” against Smollett for allegedly filing a false police report, the fallout of which was more serious than the false report.  Last week, a grand jury added 16 more felony counts to the state’s attorney’s charge.

The feds are involved, though.  The U.S. Postal Inspector is investigating mail fraud since Smollett used the postal system to deliver the alleged threatening letter to the “Empire” studios.

The FOP president wrote in a letter to the U.S. Attorney that “private attorneys [like Tchen] are not allowed to interfere with ongoing police investigations, particularly at the request of private individuals associated with subjects being investigated by the police.”  Will they look the other way, as everyone reading this believes?

He also wrote that Foxx’s last-minute recusal from the case was insufficient to avoid a conflict of interest and to correct Foxx’s inappropriate involvement.  In other words, Foxx only recused herself when she realized her interference wasn’t going to help, so she tried to appear on the up and up, and has failed miserably.  She needs to be dealt with.

“In order for Ms. Foxx to properly charge and try this case, her entire office should have recused itself and a special prosecutor been appointed,” the letter read.

I want to stress that I was a huge fan of Jussie Smollett.  I watched “Empire” until it went all Black Lives Matter on America, but even though I stopped watching the show I admired the young actor/singer, so it was a sad revelation to me when I heard what he did.

Did Baltimore Mayor Leave the State After 5 FBI/IRS Raids Against Her?

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh has not been seen since April 1st, supposedly to recover from pneumonia. Both of her houses, a business, her city hall office and the home of one of her aides were raided by the FBI and the IRS. Pugh has been implicated in a scandal whereby she sold books in an inordinate amount by groups with whom she has ties. While she was a board member of the University of Maryland system, they bought half a million dollars worth of books. Kaiser Permanente bought $114,000 worth of books as they pursued a lucrative contract that they were awarded.

Baltimore CBS Local reported:

Where is Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh? It’s the question buzzing around the city as the FBI and IRS raid Pugh’s home, City Hall and several other locations tied to her Thursday. But, no one has seen the mayor and her own spokesperson doesn’t know where she is even though she’s supposed to be recovering from pneumonia.

Pugh’s spokesman, James Bentley, told The Associated Press Thursday that he hadn’t spoken with the mayor and doesn’t know where she is. Her defense attorney, Steve Silverman, did not immediately return calls; his office routed calls to an answering machine.

From CNN

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s office confirmed that the searches are tied to the book scandal. He was briefed on the raids by a law enforcement adviser, his office said, and Hogan called for Pugh to resign.
“Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership,” Hogan said in a statement. “Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead. For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign.”
Steven Silverman, Pugh’s attorney, disputed the characterization that Thursday’s searches were a “raid” and said federal agents served a “limited subpoena for original financial records” that the law firm had for representing her in the “Healthy Holly matter.”
“The agents were polite and courteous, and the process was conducted in an expeditious and professional manner,” Silverman said in a statement.
Spokesmen for Pugh and Jack Young, the acting mayor of Baltimore, had no comment on Thursday’s developments. The state prosecutor’s office — which Hogan said he asked to investigate Pugh — said it couldn’t confirm or deny any investigation.

Massachusetts Activist Judge Who Helped Illegal Alien Escape ICE Agents Arrested And Indicted

A sitting judge was just indicted on Thursday for blocking ICE agents from detaining a twice-deported illegal alien.

Newton trial court Judge Shelley Richmond Joseph, and her court officer, Wesley MacGregor, were both charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice, obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting and obstruction of a federal proceeding.

It’s about time. Hopefully the other “Resistance” progressive activist judges are taking notes.  It is unlawful to abuse the power given to you as a judge to violate federal laws all because you hate the president.

From The Gateway Pundit:

The indictment stems from an April 2018 incident from when the activist judge helped Jose Medina-Perez avoid ICE agents by sneaking out of the courthouse secretly covertly through a back door to evade ICE agents.  MacGregor used his security access card to help the criminal illegal alien sneak out of the courthouse.  I seriously hope that illegal alien hasn’t harmed anyone since the incident.

Jose Medina-Perez had been deported two times and had a fugitive warrant out for his arrest for drunk driving and had been arraigned on narcotics charges — this is who Judge Shelley Joseph wants lurking around in society.

Jose Medina-Perez had been deported two times and had a fugitive warrant out for his arrest for drunk driving and had been arraigned on narcotics charges — this is who Judge Shelley Joseph wants lurking around in society.

“This case is about the rule of law. The allegations in today’s indictment involve obstruction by a sitting judge, that is intentional interference with the enforcement of federal law, and that is a crime,” U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Andrew Lelling said Thursday.

“As public servants, all of the officers in the court make a promise — a promise to serve the people’s interest above all else. Today we know this promise has been broken,” said Peter Fitzhugh, special agent in charge of the Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, who led the investigation.

He continued, “The people of this country deserve nothing less than to know that their appointed and elected representatives are working on their behalf, while adhering to and enforcing the rule of law, not a personal agenda.”

Now we need to have the same legal philosophy come down on all the Democrat politicians who violate federal immigration laws every day by declaring their jurisdictions sanctuaries for illegal aliens.

The already twice-deported illegal alien, who was arrested in Pennsylvania on a drug possession charge, had a detainer on him by ICE, and ICE agents were waiting for him in the lobby, not realizing that the criminal alien had already been allowed to run out the back door and get away.

Up until this point many activist judges have ruled against the Trump administration not based on the law, but their political ideology coupled with the accolades they receive by doing a solid for the Resistance.  So far they’ve done this with impunity, as they know nothing will happen to them.  Letting a criminal illegal alien run away to avoid ICE is even worse.

Hopefully, the Trump administration will start to crack down on politicians, judges, and other office holders who defy federal laws for political reasons at the expense of the safety and security of the American people.

Joe Biden Kicks Off Presidential Campaign With Praise of Antifa

In the kickoff of his third try for president, Joe Biden endorsed the violence of Antifa, which could explain why he has failed twice already. The violent tactics against conservatives are widely known and widely endorsed by the Democrat Party. Joe Biden proudly hailed them as heroes and as being nothing at all like white nationals. All that hair sniffing must have gone to his head. No doubt, Antifa will be equally as violent in 2020 – if not even more so. His endorsement could come back to haunt him during the presidential campaign should he prevail in the primaries.

From The Daily Caller

Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them.

The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists.

In a retelling of the events at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Biden describes the white nationalists as having “crazed faces, illuminated by torches, veins bulging and baring the fangs of racism,” but describes the Antifa members who engaged violently with them as “a courageous group of Americans.”

“A violent clash ensued, and a brave young woman lost her life,” Biden says in the video. “And that’s when we heard the words of the president of the United States that stunned the world and shocked the conscience of this nation.”

“He said there were quote some very fine people on both sides. Very fine people on both sides? With those words, the President of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it.”
