ABC Jussie Smollett Fake News

Court documents pertaining to the dropped charges against ‘Empire’ actor and suspected hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett are set to be unsealed by June 3rd, according to an Illinois Judge’s Thursday ruling.

The documents had previously been sealed when Smollett got off easy, receiving a slap on the wrist from prosecutors. The actor was suspected of paying two brothers to stage a fake hate crime against him, in which he was supposedly doused with bleach and racially abused.

Chicago Police determined that he organized the entire hoax, paying the Osundairo brothers to play the role of hateful Trump supporters. Prosecutors dropped charges in return for mere hours of “community service” on behalf of Smollett, sealing documents relating to his prosecution.

However, Judge Steven G. Watkins of the Circuit Court of Cook County has determined that the court documents pertaining the case are appropriate for the public domain because of Smollett’s public discussion of the case.

In his decision to unseal court records, Judge Watkins said that Smollett “voluntarily stood in front of cameras from numerous news organizations in the courthouse lobby and spoke about the case. These are not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply be let alone.

Smollett’s dramatic hate hoax possibly represents the most well-organized and detailed fake hate crime in recent memory, beating out a deluge of fake hoaxes perpetrated by progressives since Donald Trump’s election.

Chicago Police had expressed frustration over seeing Smollett walk free after what they determined to be shameless self-promoting conduct. Now, it appears that Smollett will at least face a degree of public accountability from the release of court records, which will possibly document the suspected hoax in detail not yet reported.

Court documents could detail Smollett’s transactions with the Osundairo brothers, who have since all but admitted their involvement in the hoax. Smollett could find himself in a deep hole in an ongoing City of Chicago lawsuit seeking to recoup costs of the hate crime investigation.

Smollett faced a small degree of accountability when his network television show was canceled. Now, with court records set to become public, he could be finally held responsible in the greatest extent possible outside a criminal court of law.

Texas Software Billionaire Charged in Largest Tax Fraud Indictment in US History

He’s accused of hiding $2 billion from taxes.

Published

A Texas software billionaire is being charged with tax evasion in a case federal prosecutors are describing as the largest incidence of tax fraud in American history.

79-year old Robert Brockman was charged in a 39-count indictment that includes charges of money laundering, conspiracy, wire fraud, and tax evasion, with an indictment being unsealed by the US Attorney for the District of San Francisco on Thursday.

Brockman is the CEO of the Reynolds & Reynolds Company, which develops software for automotive companies. He’s being accused of hiding more than $2 billion in capital gains from the IRS, utilizing a complex scheme of companies and trusts registered in notorious Caribbean tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands to conceal his wealth.

Brockman is alleged to have intentionally destroyed electronic devices, documents and other pieces of evidence that would reveal the nature of his tax avoidance system in the unsealed indictment. He was released from jail custody on a $1 million bond Thursday, and has plead not guilty to the charges.

David Anderson, a San Francisco federal prosecutor, described the magnitude of Brockman’s alleged tax cheating setup at a press conference announcing the charges on Thursday. “The allegation of a $2 billion tax fraud is the largest-ever tax charge against an individual in the United States,” he said.

The evidence that led to the indictment of Brockman was largely obtained from another billionaire, Robert Smith. Smith agreed to a non-prosecution with federal authorities earlier this month for tax evasion of his own, providing information on tax avoidance schemes utilized by the ultra-wealthy.

Greed of this nature is absolutely sickening, if the allegations made in the indictment are legitimate. The IRS should relentlessly pursue billionaires such as Brockman and Smith, making their tax compliance the priority over “average” Americans.
