Probe Into Empire Actor Jussie Smollett’s Hoax Attack Finds Chicago Prosecutor Kim Foxx Abused Office to Dismiss Charges

Special prosecutor Dan Webb ruled that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and her office substantially abused their discretion when dismissing charges against actor Jussie Smollett for allegedly faking an attack on himself to gain publicity.

Webb criticized Foxx’s office for the way they handled the case, which he said was marked by disarray and misleading statements, but concluded that none of their actions were criminal. 

Last March, Chicago residents and officials were shocked and angered when Foxx’s office dropped charges against Smollett, after overwhelming evidence pointed towards the homophobic, racist attack he reported being a hoax he staged for public attention.  

Webb’s investigation found that Foxx communicated with Birds of Prey actress Jurnee Smollett in a series of phone calls and texts about her brother’s case, and spoke to a former Michelle Obama aide about the actor, then outright lied to the press about it afterwards.

He also found that despite strong proof in the case against Smollett, charges were dropped without the addition of any supporting evidence, and the decision makers had “significantly and meaningfully divergent explanations for why all charges were dismissed.

Webb pointed to further discretional abuse, when Foxx’s office did not require Smollett to plead guilty to any charges, and his only form of punishment was a light sentence of 15 community service hours.   

The only fiscal fine Smollett received was the forfeiture of his $10,000 bail, which Foxx claimed was the max penalty allowed, but Webb said there is no such cap and accused Foxx of making false statements.  

Left-wing billionaire George Soros had previously contributed two million dollars to a political action committee which backed Foxx’s candidacy.

 Jussie’s Tweet

Two days prior to his “attack,” Jussie tweeted, “Frauds are everywhere.”

Kim Foxx op-ed

The Cook County State’s Attorney wrote an article for the Chicago Tribune defending her office for dropping the charges against Smollett.

Kim Foxx focused on the fact that Webb said her office did not commit criminal activity, rather than the rest of the report’s findings about her staff’s failures.

The investigation was a waste of time everyone knew what this report said and what a waste of money something Chicago doesn’t have and to waste it on this is ridiculous they knew she abused her powers but my question is now what is going to happen oh let me guess absolutely NOTHING!!!! The people of Chicago need to wake up try voting for a Republican control like president Trump said what do you have to lose really can’t get much worse

Chicago corruption runs so deep they don’t know what Truthfulness, Law & Order and Honesty look like. Mayor Lightfoot and Kim Fox must be removed from Office to save Chicago.

Why is Fox not charged with accessory after the fact since she knows for a fact that he committed the crime he was charged with and she covered it up. I see no difference than someone who was with him at the time of the crime and they lied about it and said it did happen. They to should be charged as should this fake DA Fox.

Since all of the people involved in this hoax are friends of the obamas, what chance does Justice have in this situation?

“Not enough evidence”.
I’m currently on Federal Grand Jury duty. If they had SIXTEEN counts against him, there was PLENTY of evidence!!! The minimum quorum to hear a case is 16 people, and of those, at least TWELVE have to think there’s enough evidence to indict. Kim was bought and paid for. She’s a disgrace to the Judicial system.
