  1. What? Charge him locally for the fake police report and if evidence shows it, federally for the mail crime.

  12. This is how the Obamas function. If Melania had done this, there would be a special prosecutor appointed.

  13. I agree. Eddie Johnson has mishandled this case from the beginning. He’s taking pictures and doing interviews on Good Morning America. He has been policing via social media.

    We know Jussie has lied, now it’s time for the professionals to get to the truth.

    Eddie, if you’re reading this post. Be just as angry when your Officers file a false police report. Stop doing interviews and do some real police work.

  14. This stinks like five day old fish. This guy should be tried locally for filing a false report. That is the more egregious offense (over mail fraud) and it damaged the city. It’s a heater case here and would likely result in jail time. It’ll be nothing at the Fed level and probably allow Smollett to plea out with little or no consequences.

    Foxx is a lightweight, and only got in because of Preckwinkle’s clout and the usual abysmal voter turnout. Both are becoming poster-children for the corruption they claim to oppose.

  16. …so he goes to a federal country club prison instead of cook county.

  17. Who is investigating the mail hoax? That letter he sent to his studio with the powder which started his whole scheme? That is Domestic Terrorism. The Feds have a duty to investigate and prosecute.

  18. This was prior to him being named a suspect, after it was determined that he was, she recused herself as she should. What’s the problem?
