Chicago Police Release Jussie Smollett Investigation File

Chicago Police Release Jussie Smollett Investigation File

Department is fuming over the State’s Attorney’s Office for dropping the charges.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lN-LscWv0O8

The Chicago Police Department (CPD) is not holding back its anger over the State’s Attorney dropping all charges and sealing the case of the alleged race crime hoax that involved Empire actor Jussie Smollett.

CPD released all of its investigation files on Smollett’s case.

CPD told Fox News the department “is not happy” and reminded everyone how it “exhausted manpower and numerous hours investigating this case to make sure it was handled properly.”

From The Chicago Tribune:

The 61-page police file — which was redacted to remove witness names and other personal information — lays out in detail the investigative steps taken by a team of detectives to unravel what happened to Smollett on the frigid January night in Streeterville when he claimed he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack.

While the detective files cover much of what was already publicly known about the investigation, they shed light on the moves police and prosecutors made behind the scenes to interview witnesses in front of a grand jury amid the media frenzy over the case.

Shortly before Smollett was charged in February, detectives arranged to have two brothers who had allegedly been hired to attack the actor appear before the grand jury at the Leighton Criminal Court Building at 26th Street and California Avenue.

One page brings to light the claim that Smollett paid brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo to “train” him. The police report states that the brothers charge around $20-$50 an hour. This means “Smollett would have had paid for 70 one-hour training sessions with the single check.”

The State’s Attorney’s Office dropped all charges against Smollett without informing the police department nor did it consult with Smollett’s attorneys.

CPD pointed to politics as the reason:

“The police department worked super hard on this. They put a ton of manpower on it because they knew it sounded wrong from the beginning,” another former Chicago-based law enforcement source said.

“What’s interesting is that the former chief-of-staff of Michelle Obama called the state’s attorney about the case, saying the (Smollett) family was concerned. Shortly after, the state’s attorney recused herself and now the charges are dropped and the court has sealed the record.”

It’s Chicago. OF COURSE political corruption is involved. No, I’m not just saying that:

Another retired police chief in the region told Fox News that politics has long plagued the Chicago judicial system.

“Politicians run for office promising to change the way things are done and this is what they do,” he said. “Policemen work their butts off to do a good job and this is what they get. The least a prosecutor could have done was to send it to the grand jury. It’s no wonder policemen get discouraged.”

Reports came out recently “that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had been in contact with Mrs. Obama’s former chief-of-staff, Tina Tchen, who emailed her expressing the ‘concerns’ that the Smollett family had about the ongoing investigation.” Foxx then supposedly spoke with a Smollett relative after Tchen gave her the number.

Kevin Graham, president of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, expressed outrage and disgust over the decision to drop charges while hinting “that Foxx may have interfered with the police probe and sought an investigation into whether Foxx herself had violated any laws.”

He wants federal authorities to get involved:

“We are interested in having the federal authorities look into what occurred here because we’re baffled by what has happened,” Kevin Graham told “America’s Newsroom.”

“We also think that it’s a little strange that she never that no one ever told the police department, the F.O.P, the mayor’s office that they were going to dismiss the charges in this case.”

I understand that as of today, Smollett’s legal team claims to be weighing his options and has refused on television to rule out suing the police department and the city of Chicago. Yes, the prosecutor left in charge after Foxx recused claims this is not an exoneration, but as we have just covered with the Mueller report, innocent people do not require exoneration: they are simply innocent. Smollett has not been proven guilty, and now never will be.

So, I’d like to stop beating around the bush. Is it viable for Jussie Smollett to sue the city of Chicago, its mayor, its police department and the top cop thereof for damaging his public image through their highly public accusations of wrongdoing?

    (Cavet: non-lawyer) Yes, but the Discovery phase would be *EPIC*

    If he were to sue, the onus would be on him to prove his innocence, not on the city to prove his guilt. On the preponderance of evidence, but still. There’s no way he could do that, so he’ll only sue if he’s already got a secret agreement in place for the city to settle, the way Baltimore corruptly settled with Freddie Gray’s family.

      MarkS in reply to Milhouse. | March 27, 2019 at 4:30 pm

      After the Mayor’s outrage do you think that the City will settle?

        iconotastic in reply to MarkS. | March 27, 2019 at 4:51 pm

        I believe that a new mayor will be elected on April 2, 2019. Emmanuel did not run for a third term. So his opinion of a city settlement won’t really matter.

        Subotai Bahadur in reply to MarkS. | March 27, 2019 at 7:00 pm

        First, Emmanuel is a far better actor than anyone on the cast of Empire. It was all for show.

        Second, the Democrat machine has anointed a Black, Female, and I believe self-avowed “Democrat-Socialist” as the new mayor in the election next week. There will be no resistance to any settlement if he does sue. And there will be multiple government initiatives resembling football bats in the midst of bankruptcy.

        Third, as a retired Peace Officer here in Colorado; if there are any honest cops left in Chicago, and even if not honest any of the cops and detectives who actually investigated the case instead of covering up as politically ordered, need to GTFO of there by resignation or retirement sooner than possible.

        Fourth, any Patriots still remaining in Chicago should move to America soonest. When the collapse comes you and your families really are not going to want to be in a large Leftist urban area totally dependent on outside logistics chains completely outside its control.

        Subotai Bahadur

      I am wondering if this is a head fake by Smollett. I think he had to forfeit his bond as part of the deal to not prosecute, and maybe he is trying to get the money back by hinting that he might sue and hoping the city will pay rather than have a possibly messy trial neither side wants.

      I also think Smollett REALLY wants to be able to say he is innocent and have something like a settlement from the city to lend credence to his claims. Personally I don’t think he will get anything but we will see.

      Thanks, that’s definitely food for thought for me. And, I have heard of what others have mentioned, the “colloquial but not legal” recusal and the “accidental” sealing of records. It’s quite a circus.

      Sad to hear Jussie has a legitimate and tested method of getting some money from Chicago, but at least it sounds like there will be some kind of bottom line drawn.

    ROTONDARON in reply to JBourque. | March 28, 2019 at 9:46 am

    Perhaps, Smollett, dodged a bullet here, on 16 or so misdemeanors, in Chicago….{ town of corruption}, ‘BUT”, now that President Trump, has drained much of the “FBI”, Swamp…..”perhaps”, hate crime charges will be filed against Jussie, & we’ll see if he dodges this one! Two separate forms of Justice in America?…{ still looks like it }….Let’s look to George Soros, for monetary “infusion”, in this case….{ investigation needed here asap!}

Tired of being the whipping boy of the MSM and Democrat politicians.

Jussie should demand to be prosecuted so he can prove his innocence!

According the Chicago Tribune, In Chicago, 72 people have been killed this year.

If you follow data, most were killed during the Smollett investigation.

Of course the Chicago PD are pissed at wasting all those resources on this Smollett scam and his white hollywood privilege.

Clearly, this is a case of Black Privilege. No justice, no peace!

from Kim Foxx’s official web site:

“Kim took office on December 1, 2016 with a vision for transforming the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office into a fairer, more forward-thinking agency focused on rebuilding the public trust, promoting transparency, and being proactive in making all communities safe.”

Public trust. Transparency. Fairer.

    “Her goal is to make the Cook County the most transparent prosecutor’s office in the country.”

    Edward in reply to TX-rifraph. | March 27, 2019 at 4:30 pm

    And she’s doing a fine job, through her actions (and the actions of her employees* in the office she runs), informing the people of Chicago about how the system of Justus works.

    * Yeah, she “recused herself” (I’ve heard that she did not do so officially, just basically said “I’ve recused myself from the case”). Of course her Assistant State’s Attorney delegated to let Smollet off the hook knew exactly what he was supposed to do – you know he likes eating, feeding his family and needs the job to pay the mortgage too.

      bw222 in reply to Edward. | March 27, 2019 at 8:53 pm

      Magats has been with the Cook County Prosecutor’s Office 29 years and suddenly received two promotions in two years after Foxx took control.

      Magats will do whatever he thinks the boss lady wants.

The Chicago prosecutors have their hands full with all the many murder cases in gun-free (no gun stores, no right to own a gun) Chicago. So the Smollett case was not worth their time. But they should have made him cop to one misdemeanor charge in order to get off. That would have ended the controversy.

    amatuerwrangler in reply to OldProf2. | March 28, 2019 at 5:11 pm

    Correction. The CPD has its hands full. he prosecutor not so much. The clearance rate for homicide is just a pinch over 11%, so the bulk of those homicides do not take up the prosecutor’s time. This is not Law and Order.

    The time spent chasing Jusse’s fable might have been better used on those open homicide cases.

    Prosecutors stay up nights dreaming up excuses to not charge a case, and thus keep their workload “under control”, and varsity-grade city cop will tell you that. This is probably why the Grand Jury was involved, to short-circuit the “well…. there just doesn’t seem to be enough here…” response from the prosecutor.

It would be nice to see Smollett sharing a cell with Avenatti.

OnTheLeftCoast | March 27, 2019 at 3:57 pm

The Babylon Bee:

“Yes, Mr. Smollett’s behavior does seem to warrant punishment,” his attorney said in a special hearing before a judge. “But you also have to consider the fact that he’s rich. Furthermore, he has money. And also, did I mention that he is absolutely loaded with cold, hard cash?”

“This concludes my arguments,” she said.

The attorney then pulled out a bag of money and tossed it in the general direction of Chicago’s finest judges and prosecutors, who made a mad dive for the cash while Smollett walked out a free man.

“We investigated the Jussie case and all we could find was these bags of cash,” a prosecutor on the case said, shrugging. “That’s enough exonerating evidence for us.”

stevewhitemd | March 27, 2019 at 4:13 pm

One does wonder how strong the evidence is that Ms. Tchen meddled in an on-going investigation. Calling the States Attorney to day that the “family” was concerned? My goodness, when a local thug is busted I’m sure Mama is concerned about her boy, but that doesn’t mean that the States Attorney has to listen to her.

But Ms. Foxx did listen, and “recused” herself the same way a certain attorney general did in 2016, making it really, really clear what the 1st deputy assistant had to do.

If the DOJ wanted to twist the knife, they could open an exploratory investigation into the Tchen call.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to stevewhitemd. | March 27, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    Latest news is “admission that Ms. Foxx didn’t actually recuse herself from the case, as previously claimed. She’s admitting she participated…”

    The last refuge web site

Yes sounds like obstruction to me. Question is why? After seeing pictures of Smollett at the White House and then adding the fact that he is gay reminded me of this guy Larry Sinclar.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to MarkSmith. | March 27, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    The Daily Caller misstates the facts right in the very first sentences of that article.

    Per Larry Sinclair he had the best personal, private ID data on Obama…….

And now the PD is in deep stuff as the State’s Attorney (Lil Kim) got the Court to seal the record and order the PD to stop any further release of any records from the investigation/case. The only “truth” allowed will be Lil Kim’s “truth”.

I seem to recall that Republican Jack Ryan’s Illinois divorce records were sealed. But then he had the audacity to run against Barack Obama for U. S. Senate. Amazingly those sealed records ended up in the hands of the media. The Smollett saga is just Democrat politics as usual in Illinois.

This would have, rightly, remained a local issue, and settled in rational, reasonable, proportional manner, if not for national journolist and political enhancements.

I have to wonder of Foxx herself might not be guilty of some form of obstruction of justice.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to RodFC. | March 27, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    If she was not guilty of obstruction of justice before becoming States Attorney [and I’m pretty sure in Chicago that is a required job prerequisite], she surely is now, which qualifies her for political promotion.

New in the past hour indicates the that FBI is now looking into this fiasco.

The US attorney for Chicago is a Trump appointee, by the way.

That would be funny if the head lines read “Obama is charged with obstruction of justice!”

Black lives matter … the mantra of the left.
Black lies don’t matter … the mantra of the right.

None of this is normal—even for Crook County where I was an Assistant State’s Attorney. Educated guess: this hoax implicated someone very important who had pull with the State’s Attorney, and who very badly did not want to be implicated.

I’ve read that Kamala Harris is Smolletts aunt.

    I’ve read it too, because there are idiots who will write anything. It takes about two minutes to find out it isn’t even close to being true. It seems to be based entirely on the fact that Smollett’s mother’s maiden name is Harris, and the idea that Harris is such a rare and unheard of name that all Harrises must be siblings.
