Special Prosecutor In Jussie Smollett Case Confesses To Donating To Campaign Of State’s Attorney He’s Investigating

This just keeps getting weirder.

The special prosecutor who was appointed to lead an investigation into why charges against actor and alleged hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett were dropped, has confessed to issuing a check to the campaign of State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, the very person he’s investigating for potential wrongdoing.

Dan Webb, who is part of the Winston and Strawn law firm, was chosen by a judge last month to find out, in the words of Webb himself, “whether reasonable ground exist to further prosecute Jussie Smollett, and whether any person or office involved in the Smollett Case, including Kim Foxx and members of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, engaged in improper conduct or committed any criminal offenses.”

Foxx has faced heavy scrutiny after her office dropped the charges against Smollett, an African-American actor who was arrested and charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct after allegedly staging what he claimed was a homophobic, racially-charged, politically-charged attack against him in January.

On Monday, Webb wrote an affidavit saying that Foxx’s attorney informed him last week that he had, apparently, donated $1,000 to Ms. Foxx’s campaign in 2016. In the document obtained by WFLD-TV reporter Rafer Weigel, Webb claims he does not recall making the donation, but said it was common for him to write checks supporting political candidates at the behest of his partners.

The Chicago Tribune reported that “Webb’s filing included a copy of the flyer for the fundraiser on Oct. 13, 2016,” which shows that Webb was included as a co-host of the event.

Webb later went on to say that both he and Foxx have agreed the donation should not be considered an issue nor a conflict of interest.

Kevin McCarthy Says Top Dems Who Walked Out Of White House Meeting Are ‘Infatuated’ With Impeaching Trump

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the top member of the GOP in the House of Representatives, told his side of the story about the now infamous meeting that took place in the White House that featured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer all walking out the door in the middle of things. According to McCarthy, the reason for their departure is because they are “infatuated” with the idea of impeaching President Trump. Pelosi recently launched an impeachment inquiry into the president not that long ago over a phone call he made to Ukraine concerning possibly shady business dealings involving Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Check out what McCarthy had to say via Fox News: “They left the meeting, other Democrats stayed and we had the most normal meeting you could ever have that was productive with the general of the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense and the president talking about how do we keep the homeland safe,” he said. “The president starts out and he provides the letter he sent to the president of Turkey, Erdogan,” he continued, claiming Pelosi did not look at it when it came to her turn and instead put it face down on the table. “I have served with six presidents,” the Maryland lawmaker said in a clip played by host Laura Ingraham. “Never… have I seen a president treat so disrespectfully a coequal branch of the government of the United States.” “These people are infatuated — they are fixated on impeaching this president instead of worrying about fixing our problems,” he said. McCarthy went on to say, “Who is the leader? The person who stayed in the room and had a discussion. The people who left the…

Sources Claim Turkish President Erdogan Tossed Trump Letter In The Garbage

Published

on

Sources are claiming that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan wasn’t too thrilled about the letter he received from President Trump that warned him not to take action along the Syrian border and tossed the letter in the trash. These same sources, who are close to Erdogan, confirmed with the BBC on Thursday that he “thoroughly rejected” the president’s letter, in which Trump threatened to annihilate Turkey’s economy if he decided to go forward with military action in Syria following Trump’s announcement several days prior to pull troops from the northeast of Syria. Here’s more from Fox News: Erdogan reportedly took the letter warning against being a “fool” and tossed it “in the bin,” the sources said. The letter, first obtained by Fox Business Network, came the same day Erdogan launched a Turkish military offensive into Syria, claiming it wanted to “neutralize terror threats” and establish a “safe zone.” Turkish forces last Wednesday carried out airstrikes and later announced ground troops had invaded northeastern Syria. Nearly all U.S. troops there have been removed and will be redeployed in the region in the coming weeks, something critics said was the “green light” for Erdogan to act. Here’s the letter Trump sent to Erdogan via Trish Regan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/trish_regan/status/1184559361638748161 Trump took a lot of criticism for his decision to remove troops from Syria, with many folks saying that this move was basically granting permission for Erdogan and Turkish forces to waltz into Syria and attack our Kurdish allies, essentially leaving our “friends” hanging. The president has since defended his actions saying the move to pull troops was not a “green light” for the attack on the Kurds.
