"The Chicago Way..."An interesting sub-story to these new breaking events regarding Smollett. The new special prosecutor (Dan Webb) is being accused by the State Attorney (Kim Foxx) of using the Smollett indictments to harm her re-election efforts. Her campaign even manages to inject Donald Trump's name into her protests. (It's the Chicago way...)
"In his statement, Webb said his investigation into the controversial way Foxx’s office handled the case is continuing, and that a final report would be issued to the court and Cook County Board of Commissioners.
Who is Dan Webb? Meet the special prosecutor appointed to the Jussie Smollett case. »
The Smollett case has become a flashpoint in Foxx’s reelection campaign, with all three of her primary challengers using it to attack her credibility. Her opponents on Tuesday immediately jumped at the news that Smollett had again been indicted, with some calling on Foxx to resign.
Foxx’s campaign issued a statement blasting the “James Comey-like timing” of Webb’s decision to bring the charges, noting there are only 35 days until the primary election.
Comey, a former FBI director, was criticized by many for allegedly affecting the 2016 presidential election by announcing a new investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails just days before voters went to the polls.
“(It) can only be interpreted as the further politicization of the justice system, something voters in the era of Donald Trump should consider offensive," Foxx’s statement read."
Like in Al Capones day.
Corruption as far as the eye can see...
