Chicago Police Call For Fed Investigation Into Cook County's Kim Foxx

Whoever Kim Foxx is, Cook County State's Attorney, she is pertinent to the Jussie Smollett case, even though she allegedly recused herself from legal proceedings.

The Chicago Police department has called for a federal investigation into Ms. Foxx. Reports are that Michelle Obama's former Chief of Staff had privately attempted to intervene in the case— on behalf of the Smollett family.

Foxx also spoke to a member of the Smollett family:

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx—a self-styled “reformer” who gained office largely by riding the wave of justified outrage over the Laquan McDonald scandal—appears to have pretty much botched that task in her office’s handling of the high-profile Jussie Smollett case. By first intervening with police on Smollett’s behalf and now allowing her top assistant to dismiss a 16-count felony indictment against the tall-tale-telling “Empire” actor with the lightest of slaps on the wrist, Foxx has endangered her political future and, more important, faith in the local justice system. “The office owes the public an explanation,” former Foxx chief deputy Eric Sussman told me in a phone interview late today. “I agree with the mayor. It looks like a whitewash.” It sure does. [excerpt via Chicago Business]

Another:

Kim Foxx’s office didn’t merely drop all the charges against Smollett, not long after Foxx began playing “Obama Celebrity Friends” with former first lady Michelle Obama’s onetime chief of staff. Foxx’s office dropped the charges, yes. But also as part of the deal, he will be wiped clean. His lawyers want his record expunged. That could happen as soon as today. The stain of the 16 counts in the indictment will be scrubbed right off him. You might say Foxx is bathing him in the waters of the Chicago Way, cleansing him, and making a new man out of him. And now he’s smirking at the city, the mayor, the cops, everyone. [excerpt via Chicago Business]

Additionally, the Chicago Police should file criminal charges against the prosecutor for corruption and ask for a subpoena on all communications and records and payments made to her to Foxx

It’s incredible that after all these years, Chicago still deserves the nickname, the “windy” city. Do you know that nickname’s original meaning was never about the weather but the politicians?

Smollett's lawyers are floating the possibility of their client suing the city of Chicago. It that's true that's a bad move. Because during the suit all those documents that Smollett has managed to expunge might well re-emerge and the deposition process will catch virtually anyone who has any involvement in this case in his web. So, if filing a civil suit, Smollett will be exposing virtually everything he has so far managed to conceal.

Smollett needs to understand that a civil suit - is just that - civil and during depositions and judicial testimony he cannot raise the defense of self-incrimination to avoid answering questions. All that 5th Amendment stuff only applies in criminal prosecutions, not in civil ones. And, during a civil action, he can be required to testify and testify against his interests.

Any attorney that represents Smollett who would threaten a civil action against the Chicago PD or Cook County, etc., is a fool.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
