The FBI is reviewing the shady circumstances surrounding the dismissal of felony charges against hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett, two law enforcement sources confirmed with ABC News.
The circumstances surrounding this case are definitely worth looking into in light of Kim Foxx communicating with Michelle Obama’s former aide and Smollett’s relatives.
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx was communicating with Tina Tchen, a former aide to Barack and Michelle Obama about Jussie Smollett’s case shortly after the ‘Empire’ actor staged the hate hoax crime.
Tina Tchen sent Kim Foxx an email on February 1st saying, “Hi Kim – I sent an email to your work address I think as well. I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation. I am on an 8 am flight to nyc but please call me before then. I land about 1015 Chicago time. My cell is [redacted]. Many thanks!”
In one text exchange with a Smollett relative (name is redacted), Kim Foxx is reassuring the individual that she spoke to the superintendent and asked for a favor.
The individual reached out to Foxx on February 1st and said, “Hi Kim, this is [redacted] Are you available to chat? Tina Tchen gave me your number.”
Kim Foxx engaged in a back and forth text exchange with the individual about Smollett’s case. “I’ll keep you posted, “Foxx said in a text. “Omg this would be a huge victory,” the Smollett relative said in response. “I make no guarantees, but I’m trying.” Foxx replied. Kim Foxx later recused herself from the case.
