Report Finds 'Abuses of Discretion' in Kim Foxx Handling of Jussie Smollett Case

"I've talked before about the Jussie Smollett. Case in the Jussie Smollett verdict. Well, what I haven't talked is about is the responsibility. And the abrogation of duty and the shenanigans that have been pulled by Kim flocks, who was the Cook County state attorney, the supposed prosecutor of Jesse Smollett. The good thing is that there's now a report by Dan Webb, Dan Webb is a special prosecutor who was appointed. This is the guy who prosecuted Smollett. But what he does is he goes back and he looks not just at the small lead case, but he's done a report on the behavior of the office of Kim fox, and he finds all kinds of improprieties. Let's remember, let's refresh our memory when Smollett was first busted by the cops. And they had the goods on him. They had all the evidence that was eventually presented in the trial, but nevertheless, Kim Foxx's office a dismissed the 16 count felony indictment. In fact, had no requirement that Smollett either plead guilty or accept any responsibility. They really gave Smollett no real punishment. They just gave him essentially 15 hour 15, one 5. I had over a thousand hours by the way of community service. 15 hours of community service, and then they said, listen, you paid a $10,000 bond doing a forfeit that. So Jussie Smollett was gonna get off Scot free. Now, Dan Webb looks into the behavior of Kim Fox, and he finds all kinds of violations. First of all, Kim frocks from the beginning was conspiring with a couple of other leftists, a woman named Christina Chen. By the way, this is Michelle Obama's former chief of staff, and a woman named Cheryl and I fill whose president and director counsel of the NAACP legal defense fund. So this is how the left works in concert in order in this case. They knew that Jussie Smollett was guilty, but their idea was he's promoting our narrative. You know, racism everywhere, even if you had to make it up. So they're like, how do we get this guy off? So kitten Fox, for example, had said publicly, and you really see the level of public deceit, because she publicly said that I've recused myself from the case. She said, you know, yes, I did contact Smollett sister. I was in contact with the family when I thought he was a victim. But once I realized he was a suspect that we were looking into him as the possible perpetrator, I had no contact whatsoever with the family, and Dan Webb basically says this is a flat out lie. He points out that on multiple occasions, I think he identifies at least three that Kim Fox continued to maintain contact with Jussie Smollett's sister. And this he says was an abuse of

S. C. so but that's five hundred thousand dollars wasted and the girls are charged because maybe they didn't know which is really looking the other way isn't it five hundred thousand dollars and you are listed as a champion **** winner and you don't know that you're not charged and then they have so it and then it's not just that you don't simply just say well I was a champion rowers then you you build a resume around it and they list here all of the events that she participated in all of the metals that she won all of the teams that she performed on she was the head of the lagoon foster city twenty fifteen twenty seventeen team and a twenty seventeen they took fourth place she also won the gold medal in twenty fourteen at the San Diego crew classic it's all fiction again I know this isn't news but when you look at it all typed out you sort of see the crime unfold before you I'm not sure what I I don't know what to do with these people I don't think they need to go to jail but while is this if nothing else dumb it's nine forty four into the WGN radio news Rome down club.

Uncle Joe Joe wrong, by the way, creepy fro tour for froder ISM is a paraphernalia involving rubbing, but by the way. Live from New York City home of the congestion tax. Remember your next?

Where to African American women are winning are running in one last time one particular point this is Lori Lightfoot shitty. Thirty five point at one point eight thirty five. Differs between Toni preckwinkle now, isn't that a great how they be from downton abbey? Plane. What this one is about this is Obama's ship cargo. This was a story regarding jussie smollet missed yesterday. You know, there were there were prosecutors that are marching this is one of the most important pivotal moment. And nobody reporting this Cam FOX is this basic incompetent rule, but that was a protege of this woman, Toni preckwinkle this woman is in charge of dish icago machine. She is a part of the president of the Chicago or Cook County Bob association, they have a strange government different government. Why is that important because the Obamas are strolled still trying to push through this library or Tampa library and trying. They're trying still to do this. Now, this is. Something which is fascinating to follow me on this. When he was arrested a woman by the name of Tina chin who is Michelle Obama's X aid or aid. She calls up this prosecutor, Kim, FOX said make sure you refer this to the FBI, very odd. Because, you know, prosecutors are very very possessive about their case. It's not gonna turn over the publicity case of a lifetime to the fed. Well, as this case was sealed miraculously after an executive emergency surprise super-duper. Double secret probation meeting where the case was thrown out sewer spongy without any motion. Without anyone even asking for it. All of a sudden this Kim FOX's prosecutor says, you know, there was a mistake. Apparently, all of the information was sealed you may ask yourself. Who cares if the most? Publicity, prune the most public arrest has records that are sealed. Well, when you get into the arrest report, we find out interesting things apparently the Chicago police returning the favor said, Oops, I guess we released by accident. Our information in apparent contravention of your order to seal. These people are dirty during the course of this name all of a sudden it pops up this little great wing who is the the special agent in charge of Chicago field office for violent crimes against children division this squad. Why would he have anything to do with it? Now, just imagine just use your head from women. And you know, you're going one day to find out that Hollywood in all of its manifestations. So creepy uncle Joe so Weinstein through Nexium through all of these cases is nothing but a pedophilia. A sex trafficking rat's nest and has been for years. What happens if all of a sudden it turns out this guy? I'm just saying just being speculative this guy who was a child actor Jesse. What if he would providing information, let's say to the FBI FBI constituted FBI? She FBI might be taking advantage of a little known little remembered executive order in December of twenty seventeen signed by our president. Now, let's also look at something which is also fascinating. If this were to happen. What would this do you just do the Hollywood every Emmanuel who is that? That's Rahm emanuel's, very famous and powerful. Hollywood agent buddy brother body for my brother. William Morris endeavor merge, and they're going public. Do you know what would happen? If all of a sudden, you're in the business of representing Hollywood. And it's about to crumble by virtue of a series of these these horrible up controversy. Well, what happened if you pick up the phone, call your brother, the mayor to turn on this to bring for the first time together Rahm Emanuel and the police together with get this siding with President Trump. The Marlins this story is the internee seen interconnectedness the plot to conspiracies the ball, the the people that were enemies now re position we calibrated replied formed. What was old is now, no old enemies are now, friends and allies, you're about to see something at every level of every aspect of society. Entertainment government is gonna be huge. Because remember Joe Biden is that tip of the iceberg Nexium very quickly. Nexium huge case who represents Clare Bronfman Gary goes, remember this woman last week. Tina Glen, this horrible. Woman. She's a woman she's female lawyer representing Jesse where we time you opened your mouth it made it worse about Whiteface who does he work for CARA goes who did Garrigo sign on with no Abernathy like what this is the biggest sex trafficking case in New York in Brooklyn going on what I'm saying.

"All right. Let's let's go to Chicago. We have so many things to cover have a naughty is just a just a comedy fun fast that we have to get to today. But the small et has also happened where yesterday in case, you don't know he's the guy that claimed that he was beaten up in Chicago by two men identified the man, the police said those guys because we know who those guys are and they turned out to be friends of small ad they had video of them buying bleach. And a rope. They said that he had hired them to do that. Now, how did this? How are the charges dismissed how we're felony charges dismissed we go to the guy who has been on this from the beginning, and has had the balls to say the truth, the whole time, no matter where the facts might lead. It's Rafer Weigel. He is from FOX thirty two in Chicago Rafer what the hell happened. Yeah. The big question Glenn. I'm sitting here. My news right now. I just finished interviewing wanted Jesse small lawyers Patricia homes. Sixteen counts from a grand jury as how you from a to point b she claims that they were able to convince the state's attorney's office that they didn't have a strong enough case, and they weren't going to in the K. Chicago police dispute that they they have enough evidence. You know to win the case handedly, but you know. The optics. I'm this does not look good to the state's attorney's office, especially in the recent discoveries from media outlets like ours that uncovered the Email. Former chief of staff, and and also, you know, text messages to a family member of jesse's Paulette to stay streaking FOX essentially asked me to go away. And then just that you know, it doesn't look good. And but I guess you take your pick the lesser of three evils that if she does take this. And she loses, you know, then becomes she become. So that one. Rafer? Can you move to another place because you're you're dropping out so much? We we barely understood. The Marcia Clark. Comment that she might look like Marcia Clark. Oh, I apologize. Any better? Yes. Much that's much better. Okay. So. So tell me. Does anybody actually believe because I you know, I do not want to be like the media with Donald Trump? You know, if this is the way the Justice system has decided, and it is fair and on the up and up I accept that. But I I I'm finding this very hard to stomach because none of it looks. Right. None of it looks right. No mayor Emanuel. Pointblank he stopped short of calling it a corruption. The theory is that state's attorney's office or stays three Kim FOX occurred, some kind of political favor. To do this. But let's legal team insist they were just too many holes in the case. And ultimately it was going to come down to Jesse smell. That's word against the oh, Sendero brothers. And there were some credibility is with the ocean Darrow brothers and their word against his, you know, all they needed was one juror binding shadow other out and nothing was going to happen to me. I see Kim. Fox's not unique. And that she's the state's attorney likes to win cases. I think she got scared. I think she didn't think she was gonna win it. And she didn't want to have you know, the that with the object of this or even worse. So wait a minute. Wait a minute. I understand we first of all we we have the video of them buying the rope in the bleach was there. Some other rope in bleach project they were working on. So I understand I understand that they had credibility issues. Fine. Okay. Got it. But it looks pretty good. But like you said only one person asked to say reasonable doubt. I don't think they did. And he's off you had seen federal charges. You don't get sixteen hours in rainbow push and a ten thousand dollar fine. And the ability to go out and say, Yup. I was exonerated. I didn't do it. Well, and then the interesting thing is that the state's attorney's office talk out of both sides of their mouth because they dropped the case. But then they turn around and say that he's not exonerated. We're not saying we're just not going to pursue the case. Well, that doesn't seem to make any sense. You know, if you're in your police department, puts in thousands of man hours in this case, and they felt they had a stack of evidence that what we what we know about is just the Burke that they felt they had an open and shut case and they claim that the state's attorney did not even contact them directly. My sources that PD said they were at the graduation ceremony yesterday for new recruits, and it was way to them. Source and they call that unprofessional disrespectful. And I don't think there's anybody that disagrees with that who knows anything I mean. And now they've, you know, the states freeze says a huge chasm between the Chicago police department, you know, two arms of the Justice system. Now completely at odds in a city where you already have thousands of crimes unsolved, you know, in in in solving crimes are already a problem. So where does this take us into the future? I mean, it's a risk reward thing. And it doesn't seem that the risk out read the reward at least from a big picture. Can we can we can is there any? Explanation on. Okay. So if they say, they couldn't win the case, they convince them that it would be really tough. Yeah. Well, you know, what we're both rolling the dice, aren't we? Because he could go to jail for prison for twenty years. So I guess we're both rolling the dice. That's where you negotiate. How did they negotiate who negotiated this deal? There was no negotiation teams because you know, Jesse smell. I've got everything they wanted and all the states turns off his conversation ten thousand dollars from his bond, proper, and they also have sealed the record. So my freedom of information act. Request won't be won't be granted. I won't be able to see that video any evidence that none of us will this. I mean, it's you're right. It was a total sweetheart deal, and and and you just have to go. Well, what did Kim FOX get out of this? Now, they insist that she was not the one that did this because she had recused herself. I can tell you. Nobody's buying that. Nobody outside of some molecular legal team told me that they're buying that one. So I I mean mayor Emanuel basically came out and said it without saying something changed hands here. There was some kind of quid pro quo. We just don't know what it is. And it doesn't look. So is this going to the FBI is anybody going to look into this? We'll have fraternal order Felices asking for the feds to conduct an internal investigation. Arguing the Tim FOX may have broken the law because she supposedly recused herself from this case. And then our office goes ahead and throws it out the window. They feel that violation of illegal the other thing that's potentially a problem for small at is the is the FBI investigating the also. Service investigating that letter, the mail fraud potential terrorism chart, and I know a lot of your listeners are, you know, our our big on the deep state conspiracy that the guy's been politicized. Well, you know, what there's going to be a lot attention attention to what they do here. And if they decide that they don't want to go forward and pursue persecute smell add on charges. Then you might be accused of the exact same thing. But as far as we know they are still investigating that. And if they come down with federal charges. Well, that's not something that's going to get thrown out. So that could potentially be real trouble for smell, and that is still right now as of this moment looming perhaps one of the things that amazes me is when I listened to nine solid minutes of Rahm Emanuel. And he sounds like me. Thing is fundamentally change. Thing is changed. It brought a lot of people together as much as it's divided people apart. It is interesting Glen that initially when this came out, you know, it was pretty much divided amongst racial a party lines. You know, the liberals in the locker room and a lot the right thought debated it up when it came out with the Silverton with all the evidence that they had then it shifted. You know, there was a lot less support personal ad on the left and even along racial lines. And you know, I don't know if that if that's changed. I'm not sure that it has been changed. I think a lot of people are, you know, wanted to find out for sure, you know, it's almost like you're watching a football game. And get ready to go to the fourth quarter with the game tied. And then you said, you know, what we're gonna call a game and people feel like they wanted to see this see this play out. But you know, definitely the police wanted to see this play. All I will tell you this. The problem is is that the state's attorney did not. They are allowing him to claim that he won that he was vindicated and the left is going to use that he's already is that the the arrogance of empire and the writers coming out immediately saying we'll see you the Wednesday night. Meaning will welcome him back. And we welcome you back because we were right all along that is not going to sit. Well with people who actually believe forget about race who believe in Justice, right and people who are victims of hate crimes are no people who've been dick legitimate hate crimes. You know? I it's it's interesting. It's just it's gonna leave a lot of open wounds when he walked out of the courthouse. I I was actually the only reporter outside waiting for him. Because I knew he wasn't gonna answer anything inside. So I waited outside. You feel vindicated. He said, yes, I do didn't answer any other questions after that. But he said it with such conviction. And and you're right. Could it's you know, the book the guy feels emboldened. Why wouldn't he I mean, look what they they? They gave him a sweetheart deal without having to give up anything return, except for supreme unity service that we didn't even know about until later in the day yesterday, initially they announced that they were going to drop the charges and said well while we did community service. Well, what did he do that? Well, it was a while ago. I mean, it was very ambiguous and strange the whole thing, you know, whether you're partisan honest and not just objectively looking at it. The whole thing is very very confusing. What do we look for next? We look for the FBI investigation into the mail into the ladder. That's that's the next thing. We look at. I don't think that my sources are telling me that they, you know, the DOJ is probably not gonna take this up and look at proprieties Kim FOX's office because it's not that important of a case, you know, this is a rod with the way that, you know, in a corruption case, this is a guy with a felony disorderly conduct charge. And so they're probably just going to let it. Slide. So really it comes down to the federal investigation. And you know, I've been hanging which is that due to the city. Exactly that is a very real question. Glenn because this is already a city where you, you know, behind closed doors. There was already a strained relationship between the Chicago police department and the state's attorney's office, they wouldn't acknowledge it publicly. But there has been that case because I know police frustrated because what quite often they turned over evidence. They felt that they had open and shut case state attorney's office decides not to move forward, and that's pretty common. But now, this is the first time they've come out publicly in blasted that office. And now the relationship is really strange. What does this do for solving crime going forward? I mean, our police going to be you know, this is going to be a huge blow to their morale..

Also, we will get to the green new deal with just went down inflaming, if the I know we were all informed that it was deeply important super important. And also, wildly popular. I mean for goodness sake. AFC co-sponsor of that Bill. I mean, she was on the cover of time magazine. She's so important went down fifty seven nothing in the Senate. So I guess we're all dead and twelve years guys. But before we get to any of that news first we are joined now on the line by Rafer Weigel his report from thirty to Chicago. He's been all over the jussie smollet story from beginning Rafer. Thanks so much for joining the bench Parashar again. Great having me on. I actually just recently was promoted to anchor, but I'm happy to also reporter as well. Well, congratulations. Congratulations. Yeah. Congratulations on the allocation. So let's start with this for folks who don't know what exactly happened today because it's been a whirlwind. The Jesse smollet saga ended on a season. Finale that nobody saw coming this shocked everybody the state's attorney's office deciding to completely dropped the charges against me and feel the records, and that's what that's huge because even now provoked of us who power freedom of information act request. See the surveillance video that the Chicago police talked about the evidence against him. We will never be able to see that. Now that has all been sealed completely blindsided the Chicago police department they were shocked afterwards, the mayor and the superintendent Eddie Johnson, the chief of police had a following press conference blasting decision the decision attacking the state's attorney's office in Peter that is completely unprecedented. We've never seen that happen before. In the mayor called this quote whitewash of Justice. So the already strained relationship between the states attorney's office here in Cook County has gotten even worse with the Chicago police department, and this could have huge ramifications for just fighting crime in the future. But nobody saw this coming so Raver explain why that relationship has been strained in the past. Usually prosecutors are working pretty hand in glove with with police departments. Why is there this strange relationship between the states attorney's office and the Chicago PD? Well, the knock on Kim. Fox's that she doesn't like to pursue cases unless she knows she can win now. And we in the media workload. With the police department when they need our help bringing visibility to a certain case because they need lead. And we will help them out in getting the surveillance video out there of a certain suspect. And what have you they'll get the evidence? They'll give Kim FOX. And then we'll call the state's attorney's office of noble proceed, and I've had many phone call where I'm the one calling Chicago police, and they're not going to pursue charges. So behind closed doors in off the record police have voiced their frustration to us in the media of Kim FOX's office and now sharing it on the record because we now know it could be true on the record. We we saw it firsthand from the it was unlike anything I've ever seen spun Bassett press conference with the mayor and the chief hand-in-hand blasting office. So there's already a level of mistrust, and you're talking about a city with thousands of crimes unsolved. And now, this is this is going to show, you know, this is severing that relationship even more. This is going to hurt the morale with the Chicago police department. Thinking like, well, if we do all this work, and we handed over they're not going to prosecute. So yes, it's not a, you know, a violent crime per se. There's certainly the argument that why would you put resources and money into pursuing something that really is not that important in the grand scheme of things, but it was important to the Chicago police department because they worked very hard on this. And they feel they based their credibility was on the line after the quantum McDonald's shooting, which you remember ear in Chicago and officer went to jail for that. And this was now they feel this is under cut their their credibility by doing this. So let's talk for a second about Kimberly FOX, there's been a lot of allegations by a lot of people, including me that she interfered in the investigation, especially early on there a story in the New York Post about Tina Chen who was very close with Michelle Obama for Michelle. Obama aide calling up Kimberly FOX and urging her to kick the case over to the feds as opposed to keeping it in house with the state's attorney's office. Did you have any impact on this decision? She supposedly recused herself. And it was her first aid who did all of this. But I think. A lot of people are suspicious that indicates. Well, the Chicago Tribune actually uncovered the text messages and the emails between Tina Chen and Kim FOX essentially asked her to, you know, make this go away and her response to Chan was I'll do what I can. So the picks on this do not look good now steak stories ops insists this did not come from Kim FOX because she recused herself that it was a deputy state's attorney. I can tell you from everybody that I've talked to outside of smaller legal team. Nobody's fired that this would not have happened without Kim. Fox's blessing at least do did she orchestrated? We'll never know. Now, we do know that she has political ties to Michelle Obama. Did she do this procure political favor, you have to wonder what the risk and reward was because you know, she risked allied by doing this. And and and, you know, creating this divide with the police department who like you said they need to work together hand in hand. Why would she do it? And that's a question. Unfortunately, we're not gonna know. I can tell you. It's no secret that Kim FOX has ask. Operations of higher political office. And and the the thinking is there she must have gotten something in return for doing this. But we can't imagine what that would be just amazing. So we're speaking with Rafer Weigel, he's the anchor for FOX thirty two Chicago. Now, one of the things that Chicago PD has to be fighting mad about is the fact that Smolin immediately came out with his lawyers and suggested that he was not only innocence. But then he wasn't fat still the victim. Despite the fact that Chicago PD had reams of on reams of evidence, including tape of the two guys he allegedly hired buying all the materials including phone logs, including the check that he allegedly signed to these two guys to alleged apparently beat him up. What what are folks inside the Chicago PD? Making of the fact that Kim FOX's office didn't even bother to try and leverage some sort of apology out of Justice moa, not even not apology. Not plea deal. I mean, absolutely nothing. I mean, she thumbed her nose at that department. Essentially, you know, this wasn't you know to call the deal is. It really wasn't a deal. You know, the state's attorney Scott city, Chicago got nothing from Jesse Smolin accepted ten thousand dollars. He put up for his body. And even the mayor laugh at that. It's like ten thousand dollars that barely even covers the, you know, the barely covers the stationary that went into this case, I actually found out about this because now anchor in the mornings, I got home about ten o'clock needed. It's too inside baseball. But you know, I take off my suit on me down. And also my phone starts blowing up with my guy Chikako PD. And he's he's furious screaming he's like, you go and make sure you ask Jesse small if he's gonna pay us back for every time we put into this investigation. It's like, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Calm. What are you talking about? He's dropped the charges that he was. And so that's how I found out about it. So when I called Jesse smell, let's wrap for the legal team. She's like all I can tell you. There's going to be a very big announcement at one hour, and it's huge, and she sounded very happy. Well, we're yeah. Rafer? The fact is that the ten thousand dollars that was tapped by the by the state's attorney's office. I mean, isn't that proof that the guy believes he's guilty something and wouldn't he be complaining about having to give up to the ten grand? How can they drop all the charges without any real statement is continued guilt and he's going to proclaim his innocence. But apparently, he's just going to let the ten grand bond dope. Hello, this is what all innocent people do is. They just waved the ten grand. I mean, this is uncharted territory in every way and even superintendent Eddie Johnson said that at a press conference. He's like look if I mean to something I know I'm innocent. I want my day in court because you know, they're still gonna always be people who believe that Jesse smell at is guilty. There will still be people believe he's innocent. But now, we're never going to know because you know, the police said told me that they have all the evidence that was revealed in the bond proper a few weeks ago when it's regionally went to court, basically, that's the tip of the iceberg. They say they have much more including smollet on video with the two brothers right before the attack stuck that. We will never see now. So. Yeah. I mean, it's you know, they they really he gave nothing up for that. So that you just have to go. Well, what did Kim FOX game for doing this knowing that after the report from the Chicago Tribune that she's already been accused by folks in the right of being a political crony of the Obamas. Why would she do this? Why would she risk this? And unfortunately, I don't think we'll ever know the story gets even weirder. Apparently, the state's attorney's office said that you know, he'd already done community service. Now, we're finding out that what that meant is that he had gone over to Jesse Jackson's organization and hung out with Jesse Jackson for something like ten or fifteen hours, and this was apparently sufficient to fulfil whatever community service they were looking for. So this isn't a political payoff in any way. Apparently. Yeah. And then you know, that was interesting. It was one of the things I tweeted is that you know, the thinking it's not the state's attorney's office was even if he was found guilty. He was just going to do community service anyway. And their argument was well, he's already done community service in when we asked that what do you mean what community services he's gone? They said something in fact, I wrote it down. But you know, he's been a solid outstanding member of the community since he was sixteen years old. So, you know, he didn't do community service for this crime. So what do community service for it? It's it's just it is really I don't care what side of the political while you're on. This is gonna leave you scratching your head in the second own asking one more question about the status of the federal investigation.

"What a joke this is. By the way, you want to know, why Justice Malak got off the reason jussie smollet got office because. He's best friends with the Obamas. At least that would be a good working theory. Given the fact that Tina Chen a close aide to Michelle Obama was calling up the state's attorney injustice molest defense in the middle of this whole the buckle in the first place, by the way, Kim FOX herself is a pretty radical figure, according to Chicago is dot com. Back in March of two thousand sixteen Kim FOX's down two sources of cash for her DA run in the form of twin three hundred thousand dollars nations to a super Pac supporting her called, Illinois, safety and Justice. The sole donors to that pack were neoliberal super donor and conservative boogeyman, George Soros dark money group called civic participation action fund, Soros's, notoriously liberal donor, according to sunshine, a database of state election board filings maintained by the Illinois campaign for political reform. This was the first time that Soros had entered into a political race in Illinois ever ever intervened in favor of Kim, FOX. So other donors. Fox's superpac was a civic participation action fund. They'd never made a donation in Illinois race ever before dark money since it is unclear where the money is actually coming from. So. Yeah, politics have had something to do with it. Yeah. I'm pretty sure politics had something to do with it. And it does show you that there is in fact, a track judicial system to track criminal Justice system in the United States. There are people who are famous and celebrities and on the right side of the political aisle. And then there is everybody else all the same folks who claim that the criminal Justice system is rife with white privilege. They might have missed. The fact that jussie smollet is a black man in Chicago. And the Chicago PD are supposedly super racist in the Chicago state's attorneys are supposedly super racist. Or it's just he's he's gonna walk. Now, he could still be charged federally and he should be charged. Federally geo J should not allow him to walk on. This should not be a huge mistake for the country to allow the most notorious race. Hoaxster of the last ten years to walk and then proclaim that he was actually fulfilling the truth on all of this new had enough of this in the past with racial hoax. Like, Al Sharpton, getting a show on MSNBC and still being seen as a mainstream political figure, but there's something particularly perverse about everyone in the United States knowing the jussie smollet faked a hate crime and him walking out and continuing to maintain that the Chicago PD are racist and biased against him. And I love the the writers on the show empire welcoming him back with open arms. How gross is that? They know just the way that everybody else knows exactly what happened here. But I guess that when it comes to intersection intersection -ality, even Trump's Chicago party politics when Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, are considered non positives. Useful sources by Democrats because they're not intersectional enough. You know that the intersectional left has eaten the rest of the left. It is an amazing amazing story. It turns out that everybody. I guess in the Trump administration should have lied to the Chicago PD they would have gotten away with it. If they had done that. If if Michael Flynn had lied to the Chicago PD, then you'd would be outside of a prison time at this point. Well, good stuff. At least we know that Mark era goes properly represents the Justice mullet. When he wasn't also joining in a hoax with with Michael Evanston, all that. What what a new cycle this week? All right coming up. We're going to be joined by Thomas soul. Famed economist one of my favorite thinkers in the United States. We're going to be talking about the actual evidence of discrimination in the United States. We're going to be talking about. When disparity does not equal. Discrimination is a brand new book called disparities in discrimination. That recently came out it, it's one of my favorite books. That is excellent. We'll talk about what's racist. And what is not when it comes to interpersonal action. L talk some economics as well. So coming up, we'll be joined by Dr Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution Stanford University. Stick around for all of that. Plus, we're gonna get to the New York Times, which has decided shocks. God does not exist. God thinks the New York Times doesn't exist as a functioning newspaper anymore. So there's that this is the Ben Shapiro show. Seventy seven. Forty.

"As a police officer is to investigate and gather evidence gathered facts and presenting to the state attorney. That's what we did a stand behind the detectives investigation. He also says that it was the grand jury that indicted jussie smollet on just about twenty percent of the case that they had put together they only turn over about twenty percent of the evidence to the grand jury that returned the indictment. So the, you know, the assumption being could you imagine if we had turned over the entire case file this would have been a slam dunk case. And we wouldn't have a problem with that at all again and the decision by the state attorney and Cook County isn't necessarily that it wouldn't be a slam dunk case. They may have thought that it's that they were weighing the cost of all of this with the money. The time the effort in the likely result of it only being community service at that point. Along the lines. Also of the state attorney who recused herself when he was Kim FOX, and she was texting jussie smollet family at the request of a former Michelle Obama aide woman named Tina Chen. She was trying to get Kim FOX again, Cook County state attorney she was trying to get Kim FOX two. Push the Chicago police department to giving up the investigation to the FBI because she was complaining that there were too many leaks coming out of the Chicago police department leaks that were hurting this family. So throw it to the feds. And this thing will be on lockdown. But do you think I I think that she knew that that would have been a bad decision and she prevented that from happening? Actually, I think Kim FOX's smart enough. Now, she eventually called the police and said, listen, I got I have to recuse myself you're going to have to deal with my sister. And after this because I have been in contact with the family, etc. Etc. I think she realized had this gone to the FBI had they taken over this investigation. This guy would not get the pleasure of having a nice little news conference. Like he did today to think the state of Illinois for doing what they thought was right? I wouldn't be surprised if she asked the police superintendent to turn it over to the FBI because your guys are leaking information left, and right and he said go pound sand. This is our case where keeping it get ready for the presentation for your prosecutors because we're going to put this thing together. And then when she got the case, she said, you know, what? Oh, thanks, but no, we're not doing anything with this. You mentioned earlier the on the what often can happen. In between police agencies and prosecutors is bad blood for whatever cases get dropped before don't get prosecutor to get prosecuted incorrectly. The even if they had a good relationship bless you. You've had a good relationship going into this one the fraternal order of police the police union there in Chicago is blasting the state attorney's office for this and is suggesting that her conduct that Kim FOX's conduct in all of this was highly suspicious that she used or allowed political interference to get in the middle of all of this and eventually scuttle what was going to be. They believed a very successful prosecution of this and mayor Rahm Emanuel really stopping just short of saying that there is corruption at the state attorney's office. This is perfect. The term used a whitewashing of Justice. All right coming up next. Let's cleanse our palate. Shall we know more Jesse small let let's talk about things that you're not cleaning that you should before you eat, maybe a little more Jesse Smolin for the next thirty seconds.

"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 an overturned convictions. And over twenty cases, including the first ever mass exoneration in Cook County for fifteen men whose conviction stemmed from misconduct by a 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. Everley 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. 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, Ed 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 tankers who targeted him in an apparent hate crime. Cook County state's attorney Kim FOX tried to persuade police superintendent Eddie Johnson attorney investigation, overly FBI. You. Remember that? She wanted the FBI the handle this the same FBI that ran this scam investigation of Donald Trump. Kimberly, FOX are Kim. Fox's quality Eddie Johnson came after an influential supporter of the empire actor reached out to FOX personally. This person is Tina Chen THE EM, 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 the 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 presented 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 FBI at the Obama apparatus here. So this babe. Former chief of staff for 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 because 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. He mailed threatening letters to the studio where empire 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 an empire to see this threatening letter to him threatening damage threaten to harm and maybe 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 was upset. So he wrote another letter this one to himself. In an attempt to gain 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. I 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 and people talking about similar, 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? Fine, sir. Rush. Welcome. This is Chicago where ballot harvesting was created. Anyway. I'm surprised this one got past you. The superintendent. Now, the Chicago police department he is appointed by the mayor. He's the mayor's handpicked person. This whole thing doesn't pass the smell test. He's not walked it. And he he's given his talking points by the mayor's office on what to say and every high profile case, wait a minute. Now. What lovely. So when Eddie Johnson the superintendent went out and detailed the crime and expressed his disgust correct at smollet that was actually Rahm Emanuel dictating to him, correct? And I I thought he was just trying because he's going to be out of office in a couple of months. He I thought he was just trying to network himself out there to be the next police chief somewhere else, but I spoke with the 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 the more. He goes on. Good Morning, America. George Stephanopoulos is network there. The more he goes on NBC and talks about the more it damages the case where a change of venue or a change of a jury. If it went that way, what is going to be needed. You follow? You follow follow that? So, but but take me back to the beginning of this sort of motivation who you're saying that Rahm Emanuel tells Eddie Johnson to go on TV start talking about this Cape corrupt the case pollute the jury pool. Buchanan damage the case, 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 one of them to say at which I guess we're to conclude from your that Rahm Emanuel wanted the case to have to be dropped her go away. Well, obviously, we don't have the empirical evidence. But I'll I'll let you use her magic nation on this one who has access to Ron Obama and Hillary whoever whoever smell that's 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 FOX who the 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. Enough manpower the follow up. So you don't think that Eddie Johnson is really livid about this all 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 if that's true and Eddie Johnson is good. This guy in 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 he's gonna come up like this. No, no way, especially with the amount of activists that he put in hiring. They why wouldn't when Kim FOX drops the charges then. Okay. Why wouldn't she dump on the police server to 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 crude 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 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 go 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. Then it's not ever going to see the light of day again. And that's why smollet doesn't apologize. That's why he can continue to go out there and insist he didn't do it. Because he's going to be backed up all the way to the mayor's office in 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, that's just but remember there are thousands upon thousands of bogus case reports here in Chicago. And and if this is small at offense, nothing's happened to those style 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 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 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 offender who 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 anything if I'm such an idiot that I didn't see this? No, no one's calling. You an idiot. You're about a sharpest sitcom, I all right? Let me review this because you're saying it you say 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 at did the deed he faked the attack he paid the two guys to go by the mugging supplies everything. So why is why is why is the case report bogus because the event never happened? The incident never happened. It's something that 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 are out there that are frivolous 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 basing her judgment on. I'm speculating here. Do you follow my train of thought on that? Yeah. I think mostly mostly I do. I think but don't kid yourself with the superintendent. He is wired deep deep can come to the democratic way of doing things. Okay. Then answer me this. Okay. Admittedly..

"But it is a good thing that she is attempting to make sure that less folks are are being arrested for marijuana possession. But in the larger conversation around mass incarceration, we should also remember that in order to solve mass incarceration. You can't just focus on non violent drug offenders. You have to focus on the larger picture of violence, and how it manifest itself? Yep. And even with that being said he'd had the police still arrest more people for marijuana possession than all violent crime combined. They. Oftentimes will talk about mass incarceration, we're talking about like the prison population. And it's true that there are particular at the state level a larger proportion of people who are incarcerated for so-called violent offenses than for marijuana possession. But in terms of arrests like what the police are actually arresting people for whether or not they ended up in prison for it. Like marijuana still makes up a huge proportion of what people are arrested for. And so, you know, it's good to see that not only in Baltimore. But in a number of jurisdictions now we've seen in Saint Louis county under Wesley bell. We've seen state attorney Kim FOX in Chicago Cook County, you know, many different. Prosecutors now are moving in the direction of decriminalizing marijuana refusing to charge people not only for possession, but you know, under Maryland Mosey, she's actually proposing to go further than that and not charge people for distribution or intend to distribute based on the quantity alone. So somebody would have to have like plastic bags or like scales in order to be charged with intent to distribute which again, I think even that. There could be progress made on but it's good to see prosecutor stepping up hopeful that the police will eventually stop arresting people from our wanna if it's not being charged. I'd love to dig into some of the data around interest deductions, cities and counties where prosecutors are not prosecuting people for marijuana. Are. We seeing fewer arrests for that..
