Chicago Police Revolt After Smollett’s Charges Dropped, Demand Federal Investigation
Jussie Smollett may have gotten away with it for now, but Chicago police are livid over state prosecutor Kim Foxx’s decision to ultimately drop all charges against the “Empire” actor. To make matters worse, a seemingly friendly Judge sealed all the indictments, so you and I will never see the details of the 16 charges the Grand Jury brought against him. It’s a scam, and the Chicago Mayor, Chief and rank and file police are not happy to say the least.
From the Gateway Pundit:
Refer Weigel tweeted, “I can tell you that @Chicago_Police are furious over SA Kim Foxx’s decision to drop all charges against #JussieSmollett.”

The Gateway Pundit reports, “All charges were dropped! Smollett reached a deferred prosecution deal and the judge sealed his case! Even worse, Jussie Smollett and his lawyer are sticking to the BIG LIE that Smollett was attacked by racist white Trump supporters.”
The Chicago Police Union is requesting a federal probe into the way Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handled the liberal actor’s case after it was revealed that she had communicated with Smollett’s family members via text message. Text messages also showed that Foxx had spoken to supporters of the actor regarding their concerns about the case.
Via The Gateway Pundit:
Tina Tchen a former aide to Barack and Michelle Obama, sent Kim Foxx an email saying, “Hi Kim – I sent an email to your work address I think as well. I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation. I am on an 8 am flight to nyc but please call me before then. I land about 1015 Chicago time. My cell is [redacted]. Many thanks!”
Foxx texted one of Smollett’s relatives saying that she had talked to the superintendent requesting a favor.
“I’ll keep you posted, “Foxx wrote.
“Omg this would be a huge victory,” the relative of Smollett answered.
“I make no guarantees, but I’m trying.” Foxx replied.

Foxx later recused herself from the Smollett case. The Police Union is looking to force the federal government to figure out whether or not Kim Foxx broke the law.
