    Imagine if any commoner behaved the way JS is — “Won’t you pretty please come in and talk with us? We’ll have the interrogation room catered for you.”

    I thought the feds may have been the one to ask Foxx to recuse herself. It turns out she was secretly working for JS and who knows who else:
    Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx recused herself from the Jussie Smollett investigation after speaking to one of the “Empire” actor's relatives and acting as a go-between with Chicago police, an aide said.
    Chicago Tribune on Twitter

    I wonder if the feds are getting search warrants on her.

    Omg, I sincerely hope not. This case has already been a circus so if they team up together it would immediately turn into a THREE ring circus.

    LOL!

    What? She was teaming up with him?

    Would the scary two suspects (LMBO) have gone before her?

    I thought judges are suppose to be neutral?

    What happened to judges remaining neutral and not picking sides?

    This is becoming more bizarre by the minute.

    Sigh.

    Nope, it likely wouldn't be a hate crime, for various reasons according to the definition of the law and how it's applied.

    If he made a false report, that's a crime in and of itself. And no, all crimes aren't hate crimes. Hard stop.

    New from TMZ.


    2:20 PM PT -- Chicago PD says Jussie is now "officially classified as a suspect in a criminal investigation" ... and detectives began presenting evidence Wednesday afternoon to the grand jury.

    Straight People: If Jussie Smollett Lied We Don't Owe You an Apology

    Straight People: If Jussie Smollett Lied We Don't Owe You an Apology

    Of course people are bothered. Jesus, how could anyone not be? Look, I’m not going to decide right now if it really was faked because at this point, it won’t even matter. Now that the idea that he faked it has entered the discourse, people who want to believe it was staged are -- no matter the outcome -- going to see it the way they want to and never change their minds. The truth is, whatever happened doesn’t change anything about being LGBTQ in America. I’ll let the folks who care more about celebrity drama deal with Smollett’s problem; I’m more concerned about what people think it means.

    Not sure. Don’t DA‘s usually speak with ”victims“ and their family/friends when they are classified as such? Or do they need to wait until they are classified as true victims?

    Holy cow...
    Originally I thought they said Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx recused herself because she was a distant relative, or something.

    She's the elected prosecutor for Cook County and it sounds like she was feeding case info to at least JS's family. This may have been in part why JS was stalling in order to see what all they had on him (and possibly others).

    I have to admit, I've never seen anything like this case.

    It does show how one sided justice can be depending on who you are.

    Lady Justice is to always remain blind so that justice is equally served for all.

    Seems that depends on who you are. Then I guess it's okay for her to peek out from underneath her blindfold.

    Sigh.

    She wouldn't be recusing herself for doing her job. That's why I'm taking the reading of it that I am as otherwise it makes no sense for her to recuse herself precisely for the reason that you say.
