Don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the time…

Kim Foxx, former chief of staff to First Lady Michelle Obama and current state attorney for Cook County, Illinois, has found herself in a pretty crazy situation involving the Jussie Smollett scandal.

Rumor has it that Foxx interfered with law enforcement’s investigation.

Former Deputy Assistant John Yoo appeared on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program to make something abundantly clear.

John Yoo: “This is why we have a US Justice Department. OK, so maybe they just spent a lot of time investigating President Trump to no good effect, but now they actually exist to make sure there is no corruption going on in state government. If you look at the details of this case where Mrs. Obama’s chief of staff calls the prosecutor Kim Foxx and all of the sudden these machinations occur and then the case gets dropped. That is exactly what the Justice Department is supposed to be involved in, to make sure there is no corruption in state government. I hope that President Trump is right and that the FBI is starting an investigation to look into this.

Laura Ingraham: “What’s the potential criminal exposure here, both for Foxx and the state’s attorney office itself?

John Yoo: “So Foxx could be potentially liable of what is called mail wire fraud of depriving citizens of their honest services, which if she is convicted, this is the standard law that is used to go after corrupt state officials… the maximum sentence is 20 years in prison.

WATCH:

Liberal elites and the mainstream media did everything in their power to fight for former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

There was no chance Smollett committed a hate crime against himself! Of course he was attacked by racist supporters of President Trump!

As the nation now knows, Jussie did fake the crime. It was all a hoax he created out of thin air to gain attention.

From NBC Chicago:

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.

Several media outlets in Chicago report 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.

Will Smollett actually serve hard time?

From Variety:

The new counts likely will not have much effect on Smollett’s ultimate sentence, should he be convicted, said Andrew Weisberg, a former Cook County prosecutor now in private practice. The charges would run concurrently, so the sentencing range would still be one to three years in prison. However, most defendants in Smollett’s situation are sentenced to probation.

Reactions:

In exchange for no jail time, make Smollett do a PSA admitting he’s a dipshit

The Jussie Smollett indictment includes one count per crime alleged in his two initial contacts with police. So, one count for saying he was attacked, one count for the description, one count for allegations he was hit with bleach, etc.

Jussie Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts related to his hoax attack…

I’m starting to think he’s not gonna get that raise he wanted.

Save conservative media!

Stephanopoulos Makes ‘Slit Throat’ Gesture to Cut Off Trump Lawyer, Then Realizes He’s Live On Air

His reaction is priceless…

As a house explodes behind him, Leslie Nielsen walks away saying, “nothing to see here!” That’s how the mainstream media treats any situation that might be favorable to President Trump. But, at the very least, the American public 100% understands that the mainstream media is far-left and extremely biased. In a way, they have accepted it. Not that it matters to the MSM. They just keep chugging along, full speed ahead. Check out George Snuffaluffagus’s reaction once he realized he got caught on live TV… From Daily Wire: An awkward moment from ABC News’ coverage of the Senate impeachment trial Thursday has gone viral and sparked all kinds of commentary online. ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos —who once served as a senior advisor to the only other living impeached president not named Donald Trump — was caught on camera Thursday making a “slit-the-throat” gesture urging the crew to stop showing White House Attorney Jay Sekulow as he countered a reporter’s supposition that allies of President Trump have “made statements to the effect of ‘abuse of power is an impeachable offense.’” WATCH: https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1220761295630278656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220761295630278656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbernie-sanders-releases-statement-following-backlash-from-joe-rogan-endorsement All politicians are liars. Every single one of them makes “promises” they know they can’t keep. The trick is to do it subtly so people don’t catch on until you’ve been sworn into office. Joe Biden doesn’t care, though. He can say whatever he wants because he’s got Hollywood, the uninformed, and the mainstream media to back up his every word. Check out Joe telling what is quite arguably the biggest, most ridiculous lie of 2019… Joe Biden just claimed on CNN, that today was the first time he had ever heard President Trump condemn white supremacy. THAT IS FALSE. Here are MULTIPLE examples of President Trump condemning white supremacy, going back to 2016. https://twitter.com/FrancisBrennan/status/1158542161220112385?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1158542161220112385&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbiden-just-flat-out-lied-about-trump-on-cnn%2F How absurd…

Nadler On Senate Floor: Trump ‘Is A Dictator’ & ‘He Must Be Removed From Office’ [Video]

A democratically elected dictator?

Democrats set a horrible precedent when they decided to impeach President Trump. What they did was open the door for any future president to be impeached for any reason, whatsoever. At the end of the day, Democrats have admitted that they feel POTUS will win re-election in November unless they do something to stop it – like impeach. But the people aren’t dumb and the left has an extremely poor crop of presidential candidates. Bad combo for Dems. Check out Rep. Jerry Nadler (NY) from the Senate floor… WATCH: https://twitter.com/RepAndyBiggsAZ/status/1220843902716071936?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220843902716071936&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F01%2Fnadler-president-trump-is-a-dictator-and-he-must-be-removed-from-office-video%2F CNN hit Nadler where it hurts by using his own words against him. Back when Republicans wanted to impeach President Clinton for a completely legitimate reason (lying under oath), Nadler and his ilk said the GOP were acting in a partisan manner and their actions were dividing the country. Obviously, Nadler doesn’t feel the same today when it comes to the impeachment of President Trump – despite no valid reason to remove him from office. And when CNN is calling out liberals, it means even they know this whole process is going to leave egg on all Democrat faces. Might want to listen up, Jerry. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=54&v=Y8_-I2Pot_c&feature=emb_logo Here are Nadler’s full comments: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FERMHv8Plto&feature=emb_logo Breaking — A source familiar with the investigation prompted by the whistleblower tells me that the “indicia of bias of an arguable political bias on the part“ of the whistleblower referred to by the Intel Community IG, is that the whistleblower is a Registered Democrat. https://twitter.com/jaketapper/status/1179862262653358082 2/ The attorney for the whistleblower declined to comment. The IG said “such evidence did not change my determination that the complaint relating to the urgent concern ‘appears credible’ particularly given the other information the ICIG obtained during its preliminary review.” https://twitter.com/jaketapper/status/1179867502421123074?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1179867502421123074&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nationalreview.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-ukraine-whistleblower-registered-democrat-report%2F
