Clintonworld is slimy. Obamaworld is even slimier. We just hear less about it.
How close did the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax come to staying buried? It might have ended up in the hands of the same people who threatened local law enforcement in Ferguson in a bid to cover up the "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" hoax.
After being approached by a politically connected lawyer, State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx asked Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to turn over the investigation of Jussie Smollett’s reported attack to the FBI, according to communications provided to the Tribune.
Foxx reached out to Johnson after Tina Tchen, former chief of staff to first lady Michelle Obama, emailed Foxx saying the actor’s family had unspecified “concerns about the investigation.” Tchen, a close friend of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s wife, said she was acting on behalf of the “Empire” actor and his family. A relative later exchanged texts with Foxx.
Why move the case to the FBI?
Chicago cops had better odds of uncovering the truth. The FBI, these days, is utterly untrustworthy. And I'm sure that Obamaworld knew some 'Muellers' who would have been happy to cover up the truth, drag in some of the usual suspects and keep Smollett's lie alive.
It's a sad day when the Chicago police force is more trustworthy, even when Chicago political interests come into play, than the FBI.
