Jussie Smollett Indicted

Jussie Smollett Indicted
by Lloyd Billingsley: “A little less than a year after he walked out of a Cook County courthouse seemingly never to return,” the Chicago Sun-Times reports, “Jussie Smollett again faces criminal charges as a special prosecutor Tuesday announced a new indictment accusing the former ‘Empire’ star of faking a 2019 hate crime attack.”

The new indictment brought by Special Prosecutor Dan Webb, “involves six counts that are the lowest level of felony offenses in state law.” Webb also issued a statement rebuking Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx for dismissing charges against Smollett last year, and the indictment comes as Foxx is fighting to win a second term.

In a statement Tuesday, Smollett’s attorney Tina Glandian said “the charges were appropriately dismissed the first time because they were not supported by the evidence. The attempt to re-prosecute Mr. Smollett one year later on the eve of the Cook County State's Attorney election is clearly all about politics not justice.” So was the hoax the actor staged.

Smollett sent a threatening letter to himself showing a noose, then paid two black friends to attack him in Chicago, which they proclaimed “MAGA country!” This was to dramatize the narrative that Donald Trump had turned the nation into a cauldron of racial hatred. So right from the start leftist Democrats were all in.

“The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching,” proclaimed Cory Booker. “I’m glad he’s safe.” In similar style, fellow presidential candidate Kamala Harris tagged the attack a “modern-day lynching.” Green New Dealer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who believe walls are immoral, called it a “racist, homophobic attack.” The media echo chamber also chimed in.

On February 14, 2019, Robin Roberts interviewed Smollett on “Good Morning America.” Smollett contended he was a victim and did not orchestrate the alleged attack. According to Roberts, “It’s a setback for race relations, homophobia, MAGA supporters.”

By February 20, Smollett’s story had completely collapsed, and African American comedians were mocking the actor. When NBA great Charles Barkley got word that Smollett had paid the fake muggers with a check, he told a national television audience, “do not commit crimes with checks.” The story was less credible than Al Sharpton’s Tawana Brawley hoax, but the establishment media only escalated the rhetoric.

Keith Boykin and Van Jones appeared on “At This Hour” with Kate Bolduan and both defended their belief in the story as it broke. “A lot of people say, how can you believe this story from the beginning?” Boykin said. Jones responded “Because it happens!”

Embattled Chicago police came after Smollett with charges of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report. Obama crony Tina Tchen intervened on behalf of Smollett, and the Illinois state attorney’s office dismissed 16 felony charges as part of a sealed deal.

Overshadowed by the impeachment hoax, Smollett thought he was in the clear, but now special prosecutor Dan Webb is bringing a six-pack of felony charges. As the case unfolds, media sleuths might keep watch for new interventions by Tchen and other POTUS 44 insiders. The Democrats’ anti-Trump jihad is sure to surge again, and nobody should be surprised if the actor gets a tap on the wrist, or nothing at all.

There are enough bogus hate crimes to fill books such as Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left is Selling a Fake Race War, by Wilfred Reilly. Observers should also bear in mind the fakery going on in national politics.

For most of her adult life, Elizabeth Warren claimed to be Native American in general and Cherokee in particular. When those claims were proved false, Warren did not resign from the Senate and at this writing the fake Cherokee is still running for president of the United States.

In similar style, Connecticut Democrat Richard Blumenthal claimed he served in Vietnam but he didn’t. When that claim was proved false, Blumenthal did not resign from the Senate. For his part, POTUS 44, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, has been rather quiet about the fakery of his fellow Democrats, with good reason.

According to his official biographer, Pulitzer Prize-winner David Garrow, “Dreams from My Father was not a memoir or an autobiography; it was instead, in multitudinous ways, without any question a work of historical fiction,” and the “most important composite character was the narrator himself.”

The nation’s first composite-character president doubtless played a major role in launching the fake charges of Russia collusion against candidate and President Trump. That is as serious as it gets, but to date, none of the major players have served any jail time. So fake noose hoaxster Jussie Smollett may be feeling good about his chances.

Meanwhile, as the Chicago Sun-Times notes, “Smollett is due to return to the Leighton Criminal Court Building on Feb. 24 for arraignment, almost a year to the day after he turned himself in to police in 2019.” As President Trump likes to say, we’ll have to see what happens.
