Former disgraced actor Jussie Smollett became one of the most infamous people in 2019 because he allegedly lied to the Chicago Police Department and the rest of America about being jumped by supposed President Trump supporters.
When the news broke; before all the facts came in, disgusted liberals everywhere, many of them celebrities, aggressively painted all Trump supporters as violent homophobes and allegedly screamed “This is MAGA country!” But Chicago Police maintained it was a lie based on the litany of evidence that suggested such.
And although state prosecutors declined to proceed with charges against Smollett, justice might finally be served after this brand new thing just happened.
The irreparable damage Jussie Smollett caused America earlier this year shouldn’t be forgivable. He fooled millions of liberals and demonized conservatives with his insane lie.
To this day, Smollett is still sticking to his story but the Chicago Police Department identified the attackers as two African brothers who worked on his former show “Empire,” a $3,500 check made out to them and those brothers buying suspicious items at a hardware store.
Also, back in February Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson appeared on “Good Morning America” and claimed, “There’s a lot more evidence that hasn’t been presented yet that does not support the version that he gave. There’s still a lot of physical evidence, video evidence and testimony that just simply doesn’t support his version of what happened.”
But then Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx shockingly dropped the sixteen felonies Smollett was charged with.
Then came the stunner on Friday in yet another bizarre twist with the case. Judge Michael Toomin ruled that State’s Attorney Kim Foxx should have appointed a special prosecutor when she opted to recuse herself early in the case and so he ordered one.
Judge Toomin wrote, “There was and is no legally cognizable office of Acting State’s Attorney known to our statutes or to the common law. Its existence was only in the eye or the imagination of its creator, Kim Foxx. But, she was possessed of no authority, constitutionally or statutorily, to create that office.”
What this means is that Smollett isn’t out of the woods and could (probably will) be charged in the same capacity once again.
Toomin also wrote, “If reasonable grounds exist to further prosecute Smollett, in the interest of justice the special prosecutor may take such action as may be appropriate to effectuate that result.”
The behind-the-scenes of this case inside the Cook County State Attorney’s office has always stunk like dead fish.
Uncovered text messages between Foxx and an anonymous staff member in her office; she claimed Smollett was a “washed up celeb who lied to cops,” and insisted they shouldn’t prosecute him. Weeks later the charges were dropped and Smollett was given a slap on the wrist with community service and the forfeiture of his $10,000 bond.
More information will come to light very soon.
