The Crimeless Victim
Are you puzzled by the Jussie Smollett case that never went to trial? Let me back up a bit and refresh our collective memory. A young black man in Chicago reported a hate crime to Chicago police by stating that two white men wearing red MAGA hats attacked him beating him, slipped a thin rope noose around his neck, poured bleach on him while yelling racial and anti-gay slurs because he is gay and said he was in MAGA country (in Chicago?). That’s it in a nutshell.
During the investigation of this hate crime it was determined that Jussie Smollett had filed a fake claim against himself. Video evidence shows that this was a staged “crime” because the actor (Jussie Smollett) hired his two black friends to attack him wearing red MAGA hats. A host of charges were brought against him and he was released on $10,000 bond pending a hearing before a Chicago judge.
The reason for the entire charade was because the actor was dissatisfied over his salary. Rather than negotiate with his employer he staged this hate crime for the publicity. Well somebody has to pay the piper right? Headed to court with a host of 16 felony charges and case is closed right? Wrong.
Suddenly a plea deal is brokered by the Cook County Prosecutor Kimberly M. Foxx (remember her name for when she shows up in the Democratic circles) and at the urging of ex-Chief of Staff Tina Tchen for former First Lady Michelle Obama where charges are dropped, the $10,000 bond is forfeited to the city of Chicago.
The Prosecutor decided to drop all charges and seal the court records because “Jussie Smollett would have only gotten community service if convicted and he’s already doing community service!” That is what she said at a press conference. How convenient!
Even a former Obama insider and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is outraged as is Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. They are furious and rightly so as this is a clear case where prosecution is warranted but power and influence interfered with justice and puts a whole new spin on Chicago Politics don’t you think?
Yet Jussie Smollett’s lawyers claim he was the victim of the attack he in fact orchestrated against himself and has suffered enough already and his employers stand behind HIM in full support? Are they now going to give him a raise and pay his legal fees, or was that done as it has been reported by George Soros’s “contribution” to Ms. Fox’s yet to be declared political campaign treasure chest? I thought her campaign for AG was to clean up Chicago politics once and for all? Maybe it was just all for one?
It is no accident that the charges are dropped on the same day that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had pre-arranged a meeting with former President Barack Obama and freshmen House Democrats giving them advice about getting their collective act together so they appear to remain human while advancing the Democratic agenda. Just think if President Trump scheduled a meeting to bring freshmen House members together, how many would have actually showed up? And besides, who seals court records after a no crime has occurred? There’s nothing fishy here just Chicago Politics with a Democratic twist. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
