Here's double D v. M. Here's Wcbm political editor Craig del Amore. Kimberly Foxx is a strong proponent of criminal justice reform. Like her former boss, Cook County board president Toni Preckwinkle and even Illinois Supreme Court chief Justice and Berg State's attorney. Fox believes nonviolent people charged with low level crimes. Should not be awaiting trial behind bars just because they can't afford minimal cash bond and along with others. She's helped to lower the number of inmates in Cook County jail. But critics say too many violent people are being freed to and some are using last week's looting as ammunition. Kim Foxx agrees. This is a challenging time. But what is interesting to me is that just eight weeks ago as people were taken to the streets in the wake of George Floyd and what appeared to be this awakening around the issues of justice, not just policing, but our criminal justice system as a whole, there was a sense that people understood in God. What I'm fearful of his what has gotten us into the place that led to the marches. Is this reflexive response of fear? But Fox says the people and the groups that have been fighting for justice reform our continuing that battle because there is a need for police reform in court reform and an end to the unequal treatment black and brown defendants receive in the court system now Craig Della.

"Program, we are learning more as is understandable and predictable about people involved in the decision in Chicago. The Cook County state's attorney's office. Kim FOX is the state attorney here who has dropped charges against the actor jussie smollet want to read to you from the official biography on FOX. Under a section in which she is described to have undertaken substantial reform. Fox's accomplishments include overhauling the state attorney's offices conviction integrity unit resulting in overturned convictions. In over twenty cases, including the first ever mass exoneration in Cook County for fifteen men whose conviction stemmed from misconduct by Chicago police officer. Now, what can we glean from this that she may have a problem with the cops? And of course, if you are leftist, you probably do have problems with the cops. She also in addition to not liking the cops. She doesn't like ice. Kimberly, FOX, urged Chicagoans who want to show their support for immigrants to escort witnesses to court and do what they can to put their bodies in front of immigration and customs enforcement agents trying to seize illegal immigrants, not this. The Cook County state attorney was advocating for Chicago citizens to shield and protect illegal immigrants for being apprehended. By immigration and customs enforcement agents. And then there is this from the Chicago sun times. Former Michelle Obama and smollet relative reached out to Kim FOX. Well, would we be surprised to learn? The Obamas might be involved in this. I wouldn't. Police union wants federal investigation into Kim. Fox's handling of a case after she exchanged texts with small let's relatives. Just days after jussie smollet told Chicago police he had fought off a pair of attackers who targeted him in an apparent hate crime. Cook County state's attorney Kim FOX tried to persuade police superintendent Eddie Johnson attorney investigation over the FBI. You remember that? She wanted the FBI to handle this the same FBI that ran the scam investigation of Donald Trump. Kimberly, FOX are Kim FOX's called the Eddie Johnson came after an influential supporter of the empire actor reached out to FOX personally. This person is Tina Chen THE. Chicago attorney and former chief of staff for former first lady, Michelle my bell, Obama. This is according to emails and text messages provided by FOX to these chicago-sun-times in response to a public records request, so translating this. Kim FOX asked Eddie Johnson tried to persuade Eddie Johnson attorney investigation over to the F B I after he had detailed the evidence and his own disgust at this crime. And how it wasting the resources of the city of Chicago. He didn't talk about the damage that had been done to Trump or Trump supporters, but he did refer to all of the. Insulting damage and costs to the city of Chicago. So Kim FOX tries to get the police are pretended. Turn the case over the FBI. After she gets a call. From Tina Chen. Chicago attorney former chief of staff for former first lady Michelle my bell, Obama, you think they still got contacts and the F B I at the Obama apparatus here. So this babe former chief staffer Michelle my bell Obama calls. Kim FOX trying to get the case moved over to the FBI. And now the police union wants a federal investigation into how she's handled this. Of course, she also exchanged text messages with relatives of jussie smollet. And Finally, I mentioned this in the in the opening our, you know, part of this crime is mail fraud. He mailed. Threatening letters to himself. E-mailed threatening letters to the studio were impair is produced in Chicago. And when that didn't get. The desired reaction is what's Millette wanted. He wanted the producers and the executives at FOX ended empire to see this threatening letter to him threatening damage threaten to harm. It may be kill him. He wanted that to be publicized, and they didn't publicize it. And by the way, for the record most of these kinds of things never do get publicized. Because you don't want to give the people doing this any notoriety or fame, but smell wet was upset. So he wrote another letter this one to himself. In an attempt to gain. Well, this is mail fraud. And that is a federal crime. And Fox News is reporting today. The FBI is still looking into jussie smollet allegedly sending himself a death threat letter through the mail a spokesperson for the FBI. Said no comment. But the off the record response was that there is still a serious examination of this. We still have people that want to weigh in on this. I'm gonna go to the phones now because I don't want to move from here to the updates on the Muller investigation and go to the phones and a few minutes and have people talking about smell at. So let's stick with the subject at hand. We have John here on the phone from the south side of Chicago. I'm glad you call them. Glad you got through. How are you, sir? Thank sir. Rush. Welcome. This is Chicago where Ballard harvesting was created. I'm surprised this one got past you. The superintendent. Now, the Chicago police department he is appointed by the mayor. He is the mayor's handpicked person. This whole thing doesn't pass the smell test. He's not elected. And he's he's given his talking point by the mayor's office on what to say, and every high profile case, wait a minute. Now. What lovely. So when Eddie Johnson a superintendent went out and detailed the crime and expressed his disgust at smell. That was actually Rahm Emanuel dictating to him, correct? And I thought he was just trying because he's gonna be out of office in a couple of months. He thought he was just trying to network himself out there to be the next police chief somewhere else, but that I spoke with a northwestern law professor, and he goes, you know, why he did that? I said, yeah, he's trying to find a new job. You said no he's trying to damage the case. They don't want to see him go and the more. He talked about it the more. He goes on. Good Morning, America. George Stephanopoulos is network there. The more he goes on NBC. It talked about it. The more it damages the case where a change of venue or a change of a jury. If it went that way was going to be needed. You follow? You follow follow that? So but take me back to the beginning of this sort of motivation who you're saying that Rahm Emanuel tells Eddie Johnson that go on TV start talking about this Cape corrupt. The the case pollute the jury pool. Germany Buchanan damage the case, correct? We don't want this case. So Eddie Johnson was just following orders. He wasn't telling us what he thinks. He was he was saying what what Immanuel wanted him to say at which I guess we're to conclude from you that Rahm Emanuel wanted the case. They have to be dropped her go away. Well, obviously, we don't have any empirical evidence. But I'll I'll let you use immagination on this one who has access to Ron Obama and Hillary whoever whoever similarites connected to this was this was this was a way for them to get rid of it. It was heading in that direction. Now, Kim Faulk with a scumbag state's attorney from the gecko just got rid of it just now, and the reason being is because there are many many many bogus case reports out there in the city, Chicago and not enough manpower the follow up. So you don't think that Eddie Johnson's really livid about this because just been following orders on a long, and this is how he gets his next job. Exactly. Exactly. That's that's where I was going with this. But then the northwestern LOP. Well, if that's true, then Eddie Johnson is good this guy, and his press conferences, he made everybody believed that he was personally offended by this that he was seriously disgusted by it. Yep. Now, you're the one that taught us this rush. It doesn't pass the smell test. Self appointed Rahm Emanuel police superintendent, and he's gonna come up like this. No, no way. Especially with the amount of activists that he put in hiring. He hooked. Why wouldn't when Kim FOX drops the charges then? Okay. Why wouldn't she dump on the police look, and I can't take this case forward a cops have been out there. Polluting my case and destroying it. They've they've screwed up in a jury pool. They've they've convinced everybody the defenders guilty. It's a miscarriage. Why wouldn't she say that instead of just letting everybody speculate like we're doing here? Well, she's still she's still makes he's not gonna go after Eddie Johnson. Because the the the circle the wagons among the powerful, but she will go after investigators or the police took the original case report, and that type of thing, but she won't go after Kemoko after the superintendent, she'll go after those who did the research on it. She'll go after them if that makes sense to you. So you're telling us that the nature of the evidence here is irrelevant, and it's going to be a race that it's not ever gonna see the light of day again. And that's why smell at doesn't apologize. That's why he can continue to go out there and insists he didn't do it. Because. He's going to be backed up all the way to the mayor's office, and maybe to the office of Michelle my bell Obama. Now, we are speculating on that. But what the feds do get involved? I would love for them. Love for them to put a warrant out on Kim. Fox's phone and get a hold of that. And then the truth, then the truth will be there look at we're really going far afield here. Well, it, but remember there are thousands upon thousands of bogus case reports here in Chicago. And and if this is the first offense, nothing's happened to those style. In a minute. Now, are you are you saying that you think the case report here may be bogus? Yes. Absolutely. Wait, you're saying that you think smell it may not have done this. Absolutely. He didn't do it. He did. I mean, he did create a phony story, and he notified the police and in doing so he made a bogus case report. All the case reports real based on what he said he did lie about it. He did make this a lot. Okay. You're not. You're not saying that it's that stacked against him. No. And absolutely. And what's going what should happen to something to a first time of thunder? We'll makes a bogus case report something that happens to other people who made a bogus case report here in Chicago nothing. So, and that's that's all that's all you basically have. But rush, I got I got an invite. You gotta come down to Chicago and St. and some people out around here. I mean, it's getting crazy. But you started to call saying, you can't believe how I miss this. How can I straighten everything out if I'm such an idiot that I didn't see this? No one's calling. You an idiot. You're about a sharp as they come. I. All right. Let me review this because you're saying it usually bogus case report. I hear something different than the way you're using it. I hear bogus case report. I'm saying I'm hearing that somebody lied on the case report. Correct. Okay. Well, but you're saying smell that did the deed. He faked the attack he paid the two guys to go by the mugging supplies everything. So why is his why is why is the case report bogus because the event never happened? The incident never happened. He drummed up and just concocting his head. But then it's not the case report. That's bogus. It's millette. That's bogus. Correct. But the amount of the amount of case reports that are out there that are frivolous that are that that never really occurred in the city are in the thousands and nothing happens to those people who did those case reports, so why should anything happen to small light? And that's what Kim FOX. I believe is Beijing her judgment on. I'm speculating here. Do you follow my train of thought on that? Yeah..

People said my goodness jussie smollet. He's gonna get off the he's he's going to beat the rap. He's off the hook. How is this even possible? What led to possibly off the hook for Jesse small? It has led to a whole bunch of prying eyes. Four Kim FOX the state's attorney, Tony cats. Tony cats today. Eight three three four six eight eight six six nine eight three three got Tony. Let me bring in Rafer Weigel from FOX thirty two news. You can find him on Twitter R A F E R Rafer Weigel on Twitter, and I want to start with this from Kim FOX. But before that we have to take a step back. I would like for you to go through the how it was learned. And when we talk about like, the emails the text messages, but the further exploration that Michelle Obama aide. Chen was involved in setting up a phone call between Kim FOX state's attorney and the family of jussie smollet, which may have led to this case being basically thrown out. Well, only in Chicago, could you take a high profile case of this nature that is so that was so heavily political politically and racially charged captured national attention and have it be hijack into a story about corruption. That would only. I mean, really I mean, you can think about how this would be like imagine if the OJ trial suddenly had a side show as far as the Kim FOX thing. We we did uncover some Texas some emails. Yes, that is well known it is on my Twitter feed. Tina Chen emailing Kim, FOX asked me to quarter in touch with Jesse somewhat family member who at that point. The leaks were coming out of CPI to myself and some of my colleagues that was painting Milan in an unfavorable light. So at that point ten steps in and tries to put her in touch with the with the smaller family member who we do not know who that was saying they had quote unquote, concerns over the investigation. They wanted her to turn it over to the FBI. We still don't know why the only theory we might have on that is the fact that there are no leaks that come out of the FBI as appoint we have no idea what's going on with the federal investigation into the alleged K letter that was sent to smell it vampire studios. We don't know what's going on with that. But the bottom line is is that Kim FOX had done this to to to gain something something politically or my colleague at the Tribune John cast. He's he's one of the few colonists who has been tackling the Illinois in Chicago democratic machine for a long time, his belief is that FOX is so compromised in some way that we don't know about. That she had to do this to make whatever that is go away. So his theory is while this looks bad for her. There's something even worse out there that she had to make go away by doing this. And that and we have no idea what that is. Or if it will come out, but it's all just theories at this point, Tony. And that is as Chicago as you get talking right for Weigel, FOX, thirty two news. The the moves from the state's attorney now that has come under huge levels of scrutiny, certainly by the general populace, the you have the national district attorneys association, which I think is a tweet that you also have up in your world saying that the handling of this case is absolutely not of the norm. Then you have the Illinois prosecutors bar association, which just a sleighs and fillets and cuts her up and the first thing you. Realized from both of these people is that she said, she recused herself Rafer and that never happened that never happened. And when we talked to her attorney or talk to her office about it, you know, they actually used the term. I think they said, well, we didn't mean refusal in the legal sense, we met in the in the colloquial sense. We are state's attorney everything should be used in the legal sense. She did not recuse herself. And that's why you know, there's a federal instigation going on as far as we know. Our sources say that the fact in the DOJ are looking into, you know, Kim FOX now, you know, the president tweeted that out the other day. Well, the president can't order an investigation. He doesn't have that authority. But he is he could be made aware of an investigation leading Chicago. You know, everybody knows a guy knows guy knows a guy, right? You know, I'm I'm at the gym the other day with the trainer who says he he trains one of the attorneys skins and Kim FOX's office, and, you know, somebody effective like all the facts have been investigating FOX for a long time. You know, I have not confirmed that but that's the scuttle. But now, I mean, she's taking the spotlight a lot of my colleagues in the media are saying things like look it's time to move on from Jesse Smolen. This isn't about Jesse small that anymore at this point. Eighty. That is sale. We're focused on what happened for this. As you said highly unusual is just I mean, that's putting it mildly almost you know, the question is whether or not it was illegal, and that's what people are looking into to find out. We don't know what they're going to find. But that's being examined in the statement from the Illinois prosecutors bar association. It's right here through the repeated misleading and deceptive statements to the public on Illinois law and circumstances surrounding this Malek dismissal. The state's attorney has failed in her most fundamental ethical obligations to the public. The IP condemns these actions. I mean, that's just an invitation. That's that's that's putting the X on the treasury map saying here dig here. If you're doing an investigation. Well, she's done. I mean her career is over. Chicago isn't really overall it's done. Now. This is I mean, look, this is like you're not going to recover from this at this point when you're being blasted by your colleagues, you know, she's a national embarrassment for what she did. So one of two well, either one or two things are gonna happen either. Somehow, whoever she did this four is going to return the favor and a point or something. And then, but I'm guessing that that doesn't even happen at this point because nobody wants to touch him FOX own political allies are dropping her like a stone. Toni preckwinkle is the Cook County board president here in Chicago. And she's running for mayor. The thinking was is that she was going to. She's a part of the machine she was gonna just waltz right into the mayor's office. But now she's being challenged by an outsider. Lori Lightfoot in Chicagoans actually do want an outsider. They're tired of the machine, but Quaco was gonna win. And then Kim box would be moving into her former role at the county board president Toni preckwinkle started law. Launched Kim FOX's political career. And even she is now critical of the woman which for that. It's twenty preckwinkle is like, you know, she she doesn't give you a straight answer on anything. She you know, she she dances around the answers. But on this one she was pretty demonstrative that, you know, FOX needs to explain herself. So that's a pretty big deal. And and, you know, Ron this is one of and here's another thing. I I'm sorry. I'm probably feel free is Tina Chen who she is really good friends with Rahm emanuel's wife, and this was in today's column by John cash and the trivia, and if you get a chance to take a look at it, why wouldn't Chen has reached out to roms white. Why not go, right? So so now, there's all these theories that you know, is wrong on this in some way. Did he orchestrate this to take out Kim FOX, you know, there's all these conspiracy theory Macintoshes, and I just wanted to say is I don't think people the politicians in Chicago are that smart and conniving? I mean, sometimes the simplest decision is the easiest is the right decision. And you know, my. Colleagues think Tim FOX is just not that. Right. And you know, Romney's a sacrificial lamb, this is the way Rahm operates. He has to rail against something. And now he's got his target. But he obviously still has higher political aspirations within the DNC, and I believe he's really upset at her. And if he's going to move up in the Democratic Party, but basically kills the future FOX on that level as well. So it goes back to number one. What did somebody have on her that made her have to do this? What was worse than this particular outcome? I wonder if we'll ever find out talking to Rafer Weigel, FOX thirty two news, Chicago before I let you go. We talk about Rahm Emanuel. The mayor of Chicago sends Jesse small at the bell one hundred thirty thousand dollars the jussie smollet legal team responds by saying you should be apologizing to Jesse you're lucky, we don't sue you. How about those stories play in Chicago? Oh, I think they're gonna play out. I think this is going to go to court. You know, this is what Rahm lives for he lives for the for the national stage. You know, he I I mean in a way I'm almost wondering if this politically benefits Rhonda. The alternative actually putting Justice Spoleto away. You know, I'm not sure he's not doing a little victory dance over the fact that he now has this platform to go into a, and and, you know, get himself out there a little bit more. But I believe that they will file a lawsuit and according to the municipal coat in the city. I'm I haven't reviewed it, but legal experts. I talk to say that if he doesn't they can sue him for three times the amount they may not win in court. But I mean, they they have every intention I think of leading this has in play play out because it's getting blondes getting a lot of political mileage out of this. And as long as we can keep this in the conversation and the back and forth between him and smell that, you know, he looks at that as being politically advantageous which is interesting because that was such a figure that for the Democratic Party ties with Kamala Harris is with Michelle Obama get you have Rahm trying to promote his political career by attacking this guy. You know, it's just it's it's really. Complicated. It's like it's like Peyton place. It's theater like I've never seen before. And I don't see it any time ending anytime soon before again before I let you go. The one more piece of theater, we go back to Kim. Fox's state's attorney. If it turns out, she broke the law. If it turns out she violated the law and the case against jussie smollet be reopened. That is an excellent question. I you know, what I would have to ask a legal expert on that. I. Yeah, man, because you know, she'll end up in the same prison with five. I think if that's the case. But I, you know, I I you know, what I don't know the answer to that. Card. Congratulations to you for your winnings. Good lord. Man. That's that's Rafer Weigel, right? There are a F E R Rafer Weigel on Twitter, FOX thirty two years. I appreciate you taking the time. We'll get more updates than this and a whole bunch of other stories that are out of Chicago as the days and the weeks go on. I'm Tony cats..

"Radio. Eight six six ninety Red Eye. Welcome and good morning. Thanks so much for being here. This was really interesting from yesterday that hang on here. I'm having a problem with. My computer here and trying to find something. Oh, the state attorney. Yesterday. Cook County state attorney Kim, FOX defended her office's decision to drop all charges against jussie smollet after allegedly stating a stage in the hate crime. And said the case was inadvertently sealed. I really don't know what this means. Said he was not our decision to have the resolution made under seal because of the resolution, Mr. smaller was allowed to have his criminal record of the police report around the arrest sealed the court file was not supposed to be sealed. I think what happened the clerk seal the whole thing. We did not advocate. Do not believe that the court files should be sealed. We believe in transparency. Even in difficult situations will answer questions, we did not ask for that filed to be sealed. I believe the unseal I believe unsealing the resolution is in the process now, you will have the court file to look at the court file. We'll we'll see what comes out of that. So there you go. I just wanted to make sure that we added that to the mixing in case you haven't heard that yet. All right. Eight six six ninety redeye. Let us head back to your calls and comments we go to Sarah in Dallas, Sarah, welcome. You're on Red Eye Radio. Welcome to the show. Hi. Hi, thank you for taking my call. You're welcome. Comment. Caller earlier tonight said why didn't the FBI listener that Trump was being investigated before the election, and my comment to that is isn't that the whole idea they were wanting to listen here on Trump's phone calls during the campaign. So why would it out? I don't I don't believe they ever listen to any Trump's phone calls. Okay. And then on the I don't I don't where where did you get that from? Remember the fires a warrant was on Carter page. The FIS a warrant was on Carter page and Turkestan. Campaign the right? And but but and so, yeah, they they I I know they have him on tape. No. The reason I'm asking you is I'm not criticizing you. I'm simply saying there are remember that when the former UN ambassador, it was found out that she had unmasked which means dozens upon dozens I've even heard hundreds of conversations were unmasked within the Trump campaign by the Trump administration, which means they found out who was involved in those conversations, and they were able to listen to those conversations are question. Erin mine has always been well were they all Carter page or were there other FIS warrants that we still don't know about today because they haven't come about. So when you said that they were listening to Trump's phone calls. I thought you might have heard something else that I hadn't heard. Oh, okay. Okay. All right. Yeah. Okay. You're more report. I wonder Jerome Corsi blow heading there are more. A court sad. Well, look, I you're talking about the lawsuits that who would file that the that the your Coursey. Yeah. Around coursey. Yeah. Well, I mean, he he might I don't I have no idea where that would go. I don't I don't know. I don't know whether it would go I thought you meant when it comes to. Re releasing the report. Well, look, here's the point that you do bring up if because of course, he has been talking about the fact that that he may sue will. They may not want to release part of that information. But I just don't know. I haven't heard bar s B being asset question and his office answering that question about anybody involved in the investigation that was interviewed by the special counsel. Michael caputo? I know that who who I don't know him, but he fills in on the radio station is a talk show host that I used to work at in Buffalo, New York. And so that's how I've kept up to date because one of my old producers has produced some of those shows, but I think he'd set something the other day about Corsi suing, but I don't know directly. With course, he would sue about. I just don't know because I don't know what's on his mind. What he would be looking at whether it would be some. Type of defamation of character. I just I don't know. As to what congress can do. The only thing congress would be able to do bars going to release what bars going to release? I don't know how much of it. It's going to be. I don't know. What percentage it is all of it will not be released? There will be some things that will not be released. Democrats are going to scream at that point. You're hiding something. Because that's the only thing that they have. I don't know about the grand jury testimony that was asked earlier on. I believe they would have to get like in other cases, a federal judge to approve the grand jury testimony being released before they could do that. Otherwise bar would be violating the law. If he did it. So I don't know if that's the plan or not and the other part that they would have problems with is. Anything that would give away sources and methods or anything that would be viewed by intelligence agencies as top secret. Trump already said he told. I believe Lindsey Graham, he said pay go with you know, whatever release just release. I think that was the quote just release it Lindsey Graham said so but all that's not going to be released. I think that's what Democrats want. I'm going to assume that you will see. Because I think what probably most people would want is what was the conclusions as written by Muller across the board. And I think Trump's okay with that what were their conclusions? Even on the instruction of just not. On the obstruction of Justice. Because again, that's really interesting. Why didn't he say anything did the attorneys want to go and and a stretch out a law and Muller said no did the attorneys want to say, look, he he fired Komi because. He was tried to obstruct Justice. And Muller said, we'll know there's no underlying crime. So what could it be obstructing? If he wanted to obstruct. He would have. You know, when it came out the Rosenstein report on why Komi should be fired. None of it included the investigation. And so Trump knew he was innocent. Because we were Trump believe he was innocent. And we found no evidence that he was at all anybody was colluding with the Russian. So you can't make that motivation. And maybe the federal attorneys were attempting to make that stretch of obstruction of Justice and Muller said, no. And we're not going to go that way. But he didn't want to publicly. Come out and say, there's no obstruction to let the Justice department do it themselves 'cause Muller is the one who did that. And as Andrew McCarthy wrote, why do we need Muller if he wasn't going to comment in essence on? The other big issue. The one issue was collusion. The other one was obstruction of Justice. Why wouldn't you comment on it? And if his attorneys believed, the majority of them believe that because they're Democrats that we gotta get him on something. So get them on obstruction of Justice because he fired Komi. And said publicly that the one of the other reasons was because of commies investigation. And we know the back and forth between Rosenstein who wrote the memo to fire Komi that did not include the Russia investigation. And as we've said, I think most investigators will look at that and say, well, wait a minute. If I want to fire him because I believe I'm guilty. And my attorney general gives me a memo and the memo doesn't include that and I can justify firing him without ever mentioning the investigation. That's where I'm gonna go if I'm guilty if I'm not guilty and not trying to obstruct Justice. I'm going to be honest and say I'm firing for from for all of that. And the witch hunt on me, which isn't true. And maybe that's how Muller thought, but that's the most fascinating part of it. Why did Muller do his job? On obstruction of Justice and say it either way. Don't know. I can't answer that question. Let's go to Glen in Maryland. Glen, welcome. You're on Red Eye Radio. Welcome to the show. Hi. Thank you very much. I will listen to your quite often. Thank you. And I'm a big fan of Tom fit in with the Judicial Watch. That's where I'm coming from. Yup. It's an popular view about not releasing the Mallaby poured. I totally think it shouldn't be released in any way at the base. Minimum minimum because it's perpetuating the narrative it's going to do more harm than good by releasing it? Nut bars decision to do it. The Justice Department's decision to do it. Congress really has no power in it. The only thing they can do is they could they could subpoena, and it would go to federal court and probably again, if if the Justice department goes to a federal judge and says, we believe that the grand jury testimony should be released for transparency reasons and the judge agrees then it will be released, but that will be the bars decision. Not Congress's decision. All right. Thank you. Appreciate your call. You've gone silent on me. I don't know why eight six six ninety redeye. Coming.

"Other people be treated another way there is no accountability than in the system. It is wrong. Full stop seeing the opposite, though, they're saying we have to treat them like we would anybody else because he has no criminal background. And the severity of the case is not that great after all if anybody got beat him in the hoax the victims. Here would be I guess Chicago PD all the time wasted investigating the false report. I mean, we're all like to seeing this guy gonna go to jail, I figured that wasn't going to happen. But I still thought there'd be a trial there'd be a criminal case certainly for the level that this reached in the media. They wanna do that. Looks like and and you know, here's the background. And the other story Cook County state's attorney Kim. Fox's the one that recused herself early on. I talk to Ryan burrow about this a little bit earlier, but I'll give you more detail. Is apparently they got ahold of some text messages that she was communicating with jussie smollet, relatives and supporters. This was around the time that the leaks were coming out from Chicago PD about all the inconsistencies and problems with Jesse Molex story and running there's outrage on both sides who's doing that these aren't necessarily true leaks. They turned out to be true. That's you're trying the case in the media. You're not giving us a fair shake here. They all turned out to be pretty much true over leaks that came out concerning that there was nothing on the video and then eventually the Nigerian brothers. But anyway, so it says here that she got a text from a woman named Tina chin. Who it turns out was Michelle Obama's former aide? I guess when she was veep as she was the first lady, and it said hike him, I sent an Email to your work address. I think as well only give you a call and a half of jussie smollet and family who I know they have concerns about the investigation Amman, an eight AM flight to New York City. But please call me before then landed about ten fifteen Chicago time, here's my cell. Thanks. And apparently, the text message conveys the promise I'll keep you posted spoke to the superintendent earlier trying to figure out logistics. So you know, she steps down from the case. But you gotta magin you gotta figure that probably smollet still use whatever connections. He could he could come up with. Maybe there are people in the business in the entertainment business who helped him out ahead connections in Chicago PD and in the prosecutor's office. They spent the last month or so hammer out this deal pretty quietly on the scheme of things. This isn't the most important worst outcome, really. Because as I said, I don't think he would have gotten any jail time. He probably deserves jail time because the level of this was so great. There was so many people were and there's even a few today that are still seeing this that he's been vindicated. I think a couple of celebrities came back out of their shells. And they're like, wow, what a day Justice for Jesse. But that's not the case. And you just heard the prosecutor say he was asked both ways. Do you believe he's innocent? No, you believe he's guilty. Yes. That's that's the case. I'll have more on this later when I come back. You heard the name mentioned a few minutes ago. Mark Garriga's mercury goes was one of jussie smollet attorneys, but he's got his own problem. He's been named as a co conspirator in this Michael avenue Nike extortion scheme at the federal prosecutors unveiled yesterday, I'll talk about it next in more detail on the John and Ken show right here on KFI.

"The the Cook County state attorney's Kim, FOX democrat, the current Illinois attorney general is Lisa Madigan. The daughter of Michael Madigan who you're running against a so that this story talking to David croup running for alderman their thirteenth ward. In Chicago, a victim of some sickening voter regularities voter fraud corruption criminal activity as I see it. It is it is out of a cartoon. It's out of script from Hollywood. No, one would actually believe this is happening, except this is the way they always envision it. And now it's happening to you. Do your lawyers does your team actually think they can get mad again to give on this? Do they think that they're this might be so agree GIS that the attorney general's not going gonna have a choice. Well, I don't know if we can well, hopefully, it won't even get that high. Right. Hopefully, the election board take care of it. I don't think that secretary Kim. Fox's are rather state's attorney Kim FOX's for Lisa Madigan will want to handle this properly. Maybe they will. But if they don't that we are one hundred percent dedicated to take it to the federal courts, and possibly even the United States, the United States attorney's office. So now, here's the the follow up. Let's say the election boards. Like, you know, what we're dismissing all these revocation never seen this many revocations in our life. This is clearly ridiculous. And and you're on the ballot. Has there been any outpouring in Chicago of? Hey, man, you might be crazy. But this is this is even crazier. I'm voting for you. Have you seen people say we want to be part of the campaign have people been writing checks so much so much support. It an unbelievable. And I knew that we had a lot of support in my ward my voter constituency, you know, I knew that we had done if I got on the ballot. But as well enough like it, should it, really. This should be a national issue. And instead a fresher than for any other place in America that wants to do something like this as we've expanded this story people have been reaching out all over the place from different states different cities, saying they want to help they want donate, and they wanna give advice. Some people have even offered me legal attorneys to help with my federal lawsuit. Should I go that route? And like, I said, you know, if we could take off the ballot because of this we are certainly one hundred percent going to go that route ten file a federal lawsuit against Michael madigan's by incumbent alderman and all of their phony. But before I let you go. I always asked this question. Anybody running for for office how much money do you need to win an election like this, and how much do you have in the Bank?
