CAUGHT ON TAPE: Michelle’s Chief of Staff Who Interfered In Smollett Case Admitted Her Son Has Illegal Immigrant Friends
Tina Tchen, the former Michelle Obama chief of staff who intervened for Jussie Smollett in his hate hoax case in Cook County, admitted in 2012 while working in the White House that her then-22-year old son has illegal immigrant friends.
Tchen let slip the comment in a 2012 meeting of the Akron Community Foundation’s Women’s Endowment Fund.
“We’re still trying to work on the DREAM Act,” Tchen says at the 50-second mark in the video below. “Senator Reid has announced that he will seek a vote on the freestanding DREAM Act. For those of you who don’t know what that is, this is a proposal to provide a pathway to legalization for young people who either complete a four-year college degree or are in the military.””
Because, we know — My son, my 22-year old out in Los Angeles has some friends in this position. Young people who came as babies and actually didn’t even know they weren’t documented,” Tchen said.
Tchen is a childhood friend of Rahm Emanuel’s wife and was recently put in charge of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s internal investigation into the sexual misconduct scandal centered on its founder Morris Dees, who was fired from the SPLC days ago.
Tchen runs the Times Up Legal Defense Fund, as reported by nextshark. By January, the fund — which focuses on sexual harassment advocacy — had raised more than $14 million.
Disgraced hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett has longstanding ties to the Obamas.
Cook County state’s attorney Kim Foxx is pulling a favor for the Obamas by getting their “close friend” Jussie Smollett off with no charges. George Soros’ money largely helped put Foxx in office.
“If Fox wants to be D.A. or go any further, she’s going to have to kiss the Obamas’ ass,” our source in Chicago politics tells BLP.
The Chicago Sun-Times just confirmed it: “Foxx’s call to Johnson came after an influential supporter of the “Empire” actor reached out to Foxx personally: Tina Tchen, a Chicago attorney and former chief of staff for former First Lady Michelle Obama, according to emails and text messages provided by Foxx to the Chicago Sun-Times in response to a public records request.
Tchen passed Foxx’s number to a relative of the actor, and the ensuing conversations with the family member were cited by Foxx last month as the reason she recused herself from Smollett’s prosecution as the actor faces disorderly conduct charges for allegedly making a false police report.
Text messages show Tchen contacted Foxx on Feb. 1, three days after Smollett said he was jumped by two men as he walked home from a sandwich shop near his Streeterville home. Tchen texted Foxx to set up an early morning phone call.
“I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation,” Tchen wrote in a text sent before 5 a.m., seeking to set up a call with Foxx before Tchen left on an 8 a.m. flight to New York.
A few hours later, Foxx received a text from a relative of Smollett, who said she’d received the number from Tchen.”
Chicago Sun-Times passage ends
The pro-Bernie Sanders group Reclaim Chicago is sweet on Foxx as a politician (Obama still hasn’t endorsed anyone).
