An aide to former First Lady Michelle Obama attempted to pull strings for Jussie Smollett and have the case taken over by the FBI, only to have the prosecutor she reached out to recuse herself.
When the facts were still breaking and Smollett was considered the victim of a hate crime, a former Obama administration official attempted to have the case redirected from the Chicago Police Department to the FBI, according to new text messages revealed by USA Today.
According to USA Today, Tina Tchen, who worked as Obama’s chief of staff during her time in the White House, reached out to Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx by text message in early February. She requested that the Chicago police hand over the case to the FBI for them to pursue federal hate crime charges. When she received a positive response from Foxx, Tchen then relayed the information to one of Smollett’s relatives who said the move would be a “victory” for the family.
Smollett claims he was attacked by two white men wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats who poured bleach over him and attempted to lynch him while shouting “MAGA country.” The FBI would have investigated based on these claims.
After facts came to light revealing the hate hoax, Foxx recused herself from the case. The FBI never became involved in the hate crime investigation, as police found insufficient evidence that a hate crime occurred.
Spoke to the Superintendent Johnson,” Foxx emailed Tchen on Feb. 1, referring to the city’s top cop, Eddie Johnson. “I convinced him to Reach out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation.”
Foxx also texted with one of Smollett’s relatives, whose name was redacted in copies of the communication released by her office.
“Spoke to the superintendent earlier, he made the ask,” Foxx wrote. “Trying to figure out logistics. I’ll keep you posted.”
The relative responded, “Omg this would be a huge victory.”
Last week Smollett was indicted with 16 counts of felony disorderly conduct by a grand jury relating to the lies he told police in his hate hoax attempt.

Alan Dershowitz: George Soros Personally Requested FBI Investigations During Obama Presidency
If the claims are true, the corruption of the Department of Justice would be worse than feared.
Attorney and political commentator Alan Dershowitz claimed to have discovered shocking new levels of corruption inside the Department of Justice while speaking on Breitbart News Daily on Sunday, stating that infamous oligarch George Soros personally ordered President Barack Obama to investigate an anonymous individual.
“I have some information as well, about the Obama administration, that will be disclosed in a lawsuit… President Obama personally asked the FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of George Soros, who is a close ally of his.”
“President @BarackObama personally asked the @FBI to investigate somebody on behalf of #GeorgeSoros…” –@AlanDersh on @BreitbartNews Sunday with @joelpollak.

Such a development would shatter the credibility of much of the FBI’s operations during Obama’s presidency. The agency has already been reeling in light of an abundance of political scandals in which agents were caught engaging in naked partisan political behavior.
The information is apparently set to be exposed concretely in an upcoming lawsuit.
Career bureaucrats from within and outside the Department of Justice(some of them former department employees) are hectoring for Bill Barr’s resignation, claiming that the reforming Attorney General is damaging the department’s “credibility.” It’s hard to imagine what could harm the credibility of federal law enforcement more than a notorious oligarch personally arranging investigations of his political opponents, but the real scandal according to the bureaucratic elite is Barr overturning a draconian and politically tainted prison sentence aimed at Roger Stone.
Soros is set to funnel unprecedented amounts of his vast multi-billion dollar fortune into influencing the 2020 presidential election. If he proves successful in electing his chosen Democratic candidate, it’s certainly possible the oligarch could use his influence to demand even more politically slanted FBI investigations of those he deems his political enemies.
