As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by DailyMail:
The prosecutor who texted Jussie Smollett’s family at the request of a former Michelle Obama aide to discuss getting the FBI to take over the Empire actor’s case has come under renewed scrutiny after all charges against him were sensationally dropped.
Chicago police are furious about Tuesday’s decision to drop Smollett’s charges and are demanding that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx be investigated over her handling of the probe.
The article goes on to state the following:
Foxx recused herself from the case last month for exchanging text messages with one of Smollett’s relatives in the days after the actor told police he was attacked on January 29.
Police now want Foxx to face an Attorney General investigation for trying to wrestle the case out of the Chicago Police Department’s hands and have it led by the FBI instead.
Authorities are concerned about whose interests Foxx was working in when she – after being contacted by former Michelle Obama aide Tina Tchen – tried to steer the investigation in the direction the Smollett family wanted.
Foxx’s connections to Tchen and the Smollett family came under renewed scrutiny on Tuesday following the shock decision to drop all charges against the Empire actor.

The corruption of Kim Foxx in complying with evil requests by Smollett’s camp to let him off scot-free will hurt no one more than actual hate crime victims. The criminal justice system doesn’t just punish, but also deters. Today, it’s doing neither.. https://t.co/pmFSS9OmAF

If Kim Foxx thinks she can issue a written statement and be done with a case that gave Chicago a huge black eye, she’s mistaken. https://t.co/gaehO4iOrP

A furious Mayor Emanuel calls SA Kim Foxx’s decision to drop charges against #JussieSmollett a “white wash of justice…and it’s just wrong. Full stop.” Adding it sends the clear message that for those who have political influence a different code of justice exists for them.

Apparently, it’s white privilege to have a fair legal system. Tina Tchen (Asian female) asked Smollett prosecutor Kim Foxx (black female) to go easy on Jussie Smollett (black male). And she did.https://t.co/91snkJTh1F

FOP clarifies it’s not that Foxx is aligned with Obama that has them questioning the competency of her office. But that she was willing to step in and try and interfere with the #JussieSmollett investigation because of it. There is concern they may blow the prosecution.

Democrats always bragged about President Obama being a Constitutional Law Professor and a lawyer and he lives in Chicago. Maybe Smollett the partisan hack should let Democrat’s decide his future. Oh wait they already did. pic.twitter.com/x8rXt1n5Mf
