The View Goes Off on Jussie Smollett Charges Being Dropped: 'What the Heck Happened?!'

Foxx, the top law enforcement official in Chicago, is now under intense scrutiny because of a decision to drop all charges against actor Jussie Smollett on March 26.

But the 61 newly released pages do shed light on investigators' interactions with the siblings - police put them up in a hotel for days because reporters were probing their home, and investigators continued to interview them there before a grand jury indicted Smollett - as well as a few other details.

Jussie Smollett leaves a Chicago courthouse Tuesday after the charges were dropped against him. "It makes no common sense".

Prosecutors abruptly dropped all charges against Jussie Smollett on Tuesday after the Empire actor accused of faking a racist, anti-gay attack on himself agreed to let the city keep his $10,000 in bail.

Glandian says Smollett, who is black and gay, had hired one brother as a personal trainer, and that they discussed training and nutrition in the hours before the attack as Smollett's flight to Chicago was delayed. The redacted report, released to the media under a freedom of information request, outlined the lengthy steps that had led to police charging Smollett.

"After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr Smollett's volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the city of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case", Cook county state's attorney's office said.

Tina Tchen, who served as chief of staff to then-first lady Michelle Obama, claimed that she had simply reached out to the prosecutor because Smollett's family had some concerns about the investigation.

"At this point all that's happened is the state is telling us they're not going to prosecute him on criminal charges, but that doesn't mean there can't be civil lawsuits going both ways". Chicago police detained the brothers in mid-February at O'Hare International Airport after the returned from Nigeria, they were questioned and their apartment in Chicago was searched.

She told Foxx: "Hi Kim - I sent an email to your work address I think as well".

Prosecutors have said Smollett and Abel Osundairo, 25, became friends in 2017 and that Abel Osundairo was a stand-in for a character on "Empire". As Breitbart News reported Tuesday, progressive billionaire mega-donor George Soros donated $408,000 in 2016 to a super PAC which supported Foxx.

Because of this, Foxx did not violate state law by giving the case to Magats.

In 2016, Soros also bankrolled a state attorney election in Orange County, Florida.

And one more thing: Foxx also claimed that her office never asked for the case to be sealed.

"Instead, in an abundance of caution, Fox informally separated herself from the decision-making over the case and left it to her Assistants, as happens in 99.9% of all cases handled by the Office", the spokesperson added. "It's a little confusing for me because cases are dismissed all the time", Hostin said.
