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

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
