Jussie Smollett Helped By Former Michelle Obama Aide

All felony charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett for his purported role in staging a hate crime against himself have been dropped.

Naturally, people are pretty suspicious about how this happened. Not just conservatives and Republicans, but prominent Democrats like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel & Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. 

Now people are asking questions and calling for a Federal investigation to find out why Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx suddenly decided to feel sympathy for Jussie after previously rescinding herself from the entire case.

But a news report from the New York Post published on March 14th of this year might help shed some light on what happened.

That's when it was revealed that a former aide to Michelle Obama tried to intervene in the case on Jussie's behalf.

The NYPost reports:

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx reached out to Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson after Tina Tchen, the former senior Obama official, emailed the prosecutor saying the “Empire” actor’s family had “concerns” about the probe, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Tchen passed Foxx’s number to a family member of Smollett, and the ensuing conversations with the relative were later cited by the prosecutor as the reason she recused herself from the probe, according to the paper, which obtained messages from Foxx in response to a public records request.
Text messages show Tchen contacted Foxx on Feb. 1, three days after Smollett reported that he was attacked by two masked men who hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him and put his neck in a noose.
Tchen, a close friend of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s wife, sent a text message to Foxx to set up an early morning phone call, according to the newspaper.
“I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation,” texted Tchen, who sought to set up a call with Foxx before flying out to New York at 8 a.m.
The text messages show Foxx told both Tchen and Smollett’s relative that Foxx had reached out to Johnson about handing the probe to the feds.
“Spoke to the Superintendent Johnson,” Foxx emailed Tchen the same day. “I convinced him to Reach out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation. He is reaching out now and will get to me shortly.”

Did Obama's former aide convince prosecutor Kim Foxx to drop the charges? It wouldn't surprise anyone, if true. After all, prosecutor Kim Foxx stated on her personal Twitter account that she owes her entire career to her close friend California Democrat Kamala Harris. These establishment Democrats all hobnob together at the same cocktail parties. Why wouldn't they work together to help out Jussie Smollett, a man who also called Michelle Obama his friend when they danced on stage together in Philadelphia last May?
