Kim Foxx Could Get 20 Years In Prison For Protecting Jussie Smollett
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx shocked the nation this week when she dropped 16 felony charges against Jussie Smollett. Now the FBI is investigating why, and Foxx could do some serious time for protecting the actor. Former deputy assistant attorney general John Yoo believes that she could get up to 20 years for the role she played in the corruption.
“Americans myself included are outraged by this, the fact that this guy faked a hate crime. Look, I’m a minority. You are a woman, Yoo told Laura Ingraham on the Fox News program “The Ingraham Angle” on Thursday.
“What if we were to be attacked legitimately and now we are going to be less believed by police and prosecutors because of the example of this guy,” he said.

“A lot of Americans realize something ought to be done, second, this is why we have U.S. Justice Department, Yoo said.
“Mrs. Obama’s chief of staff because the prosecutor Kim Foxx and all of a sudden these machinations occur and the case gets dropped? That is exactly what the justice Department is supposed to be involved in is to make sure that there is no corruption in state government,” he said.
“So I hope that President Trump is right and the FBI are starting a investigation to look into this,” he told Ingraham.
“Foxx … if she is convicted, this is the standard law that used to go after corrupt state officials. Suppose she got a bribe, suppose she was promised a fund-raiser or some kind of other influence to drop this case, the maximum sentence is 20 years in prison,” he said.

Yoo also explained that Smollett is far from being done with the law and could also be prosecuted by the feds even though he did not face state charges.
“His story is not over. Even though the case under state law could be dropped, he could be prosecuted under federal law.,” Yoo said.
“He used the Internet — again, mail and wire fraud, to engage in a conspiracy to defraud, namely the peoples engaging in contract negotiations with, to defraud the people of Chicago, the people of Chicago,” he said.
“Plus he did this crazy thing before when he mailed himself chemical weapons. He mailed himself a white powder, claimed at anthrax, trying to report back to the police. That’s actually a federal crime, to create a hoax,” he said.
And worse for Smollett, he said, “I do not think Michelle Obama can call the attorney general bill Barr and get the charges dropped.”
First, they drop charges. Jussie Smollett declares it proves he is innocent.
Then the Prosecutor states, it DOES NOT prove he is innocent, in fact, we think he is GUILTY!
Then Rahm and Jackson have a press conference, excoriating Jussie and the Prosecutor, stating it is obvious he is guilty.
Next, the CPD quickly responds to an FOIA and releases the police records, which were very damning.
Then the next day, the Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association condemned Foxx and the Prosecutors office. They stated that it was unethical and misleading, as well as obviously abnormal and nefarious.
The next surprise was that the city of Chicago is threatens to bring new charges against Jussie Smollett if he does not pay for costs the city accrued investigating his false police report! The city laid out the cost of the investigation into the alleged hate crime as costing more than $130,000.
And Now This!!!!
You couldn’t get a better plot in Hollywood if you tried! Jussie looks like a great big fool at this point…and we still have the FBI investigation!!!!
