Chicago Police Union wants Federal Probe in Smollett case
Nainamo News ^ | 3-19-2019 | Canadian Press

Posted on 03/19/2019 3:02:15 PM PDT by tcrlaf

The Chicago police union's president alleges that the county's top prosecutor interfered with the investigation of "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett before recusing herself and wants the Justice Department to determine if she broke any laws.

WLS-TV in Chicago reports that Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham wrote the Justice Department following reports that Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx asked Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to let the FBI investigate Smollett's allegations that he was attacked by two masked men after the former chief of staff to former first lady Michelle Obama informed Foxx that Smollett's family had concerns about the probe.

The police kept the investigation and Foxx recused herself. Her office charged Smollett with lying to police.

Foxx's office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

This has all of the makings of a much bigger criminal conspiracy, using a hoax to create support for passing Kamala Harris's Hate Crimes Legislation.

I found this AP report in an obscure Canadian newspaper.... Of all places.

Hmm, let’s see... The Chicago Police Chief pretty much laid it all out on the line very clearly and now the Police Union (likely backed by Democrats) suddenly want to hand it over the FBI that has been repeatedly politically biased against President Trump.
No political maneuvering here.. SARC!!!!

They don’t wan to hand over the Smollet case.

They want the crooked top prosecutor looked into and if Kamala Harris was involved with this it is way beyond the scope of the local police to handle thins.

And the we know one of the prosecutors has already been compromised.

The FBI needs to investigate this prosecutor and make her life difficult.

The minute he dropped that letter into the mail, it became a federal case.

It’s interesting how things started to unravel and spiral out of control from the very beginning. It reminds me of a scene from the movie “Body Heat” between William Hurt’s character Ned and Mickey Rourke’s character Teddy.

Teddy Lewis: I got a serious question for you: What the f#@* are you doing? This is not sh!t for you to be messin’ with. Are you ready to hear something? I want you to see if this sounds familiar: any time you try a decent crime, you got fifty ways you’re gonna f@#* up. If you think of twenty-five of them, then you’re a genius... and you ain’t no genius. You remember who told me that?

Smollet might even enjoy a Federal Probe.

It is entirely possible that Foxx's office may have violated federal laws that might include, but not be limited to:

<><> Title 18 U.S.C. §1341, Mail Fraud, 18 U.S.C.§1001, Presenting a False Document to an Agent of the US Government for funding (may involve several felonies and could include forgery);

<><> 18 U.S.C.§1027 False statements and concealment of facts in relation to documents required by ERISA enacted 1974 and other possible offenses including civil and/or criminal RICO violations.

<><> 18 U.S.C. §§1961-68 (RICO Act)18 U.S.C. §1001 (making false Statements to Agents of the US Government,

<><> 18 U.S.C. §241(Conspiracies Against Civil Rights). Violation of Civil Rights under Color of law and conspiracy. Conspiring with others to violate 4th amendment rights.

<><> Possibly full investigations centering on RICO conspiracies under 18 U.S.C. §1962(c) could be warranted because (1) the persons (2) were employed by or associated with a public enterprise (3) that engaged in or affected interstate commerce and that (4) the persons operated or managed the enterprise (5) through a “pattern” (6) of racketeering activity, and (7) the taxpayers were injured by reason of the “pattern” of racketeering activity.

<><> Alleged Offenses could include Violation of Rights – which prohibits in relevant part, “two or more persons (from conspiring) to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District

<><> Title 18 U.S.C. §2 41 – Conspiracy Against Constitutional mandates in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of having so exercised the same . . .” See, 18 U.S.C. §241.

Under some state's laws governing “fraudulent practices,” it is a third-degree felony to “knowingly and willfully ...
make or use any false document, knowing the same to contain any false, fictitious, or fraudulent
statement or entry” connected to a criminal investigation.

===================================

The following agencies should commence investigations at once:
<><> FBI — Wire Fraud Division
<><> IRS-Fraud Unit
<><> Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General,
<><> Department of Commerce’s Office of Inspector General.

from the link you posted:

This is Interesting
Remember Mrs. Obama’s former Chief of Staff who called Crimesha Foxxx to interfere in the Smollett investigation?
•The Southern Poverty Law Center has tapped Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff to lead a “top-to-bottom” examination of its workplace culture, less than a week after the anti-hate nonprofit fired co-founder Morris Dees for misconduct and its staff complained of discrimination against women and people of color.

Tina Tchen, who began leading Buckley LLP law firms’s Chicago office after serving in the White House, will lead a review that reports to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s board of directors, the nonprofit announced Monday...

The investigation would take three minutes and it would be Trumps fault.
