Embattled Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx yesterday issued a statement reacting to the Special Prosecutor’s decision to re-indict Jussie Smollett, whom Foxx essentially let go. Her statement, from CBS Chicago:
The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office charged Jussie Smollett with multiple counts, and today the Special Prosecutor did the same. What’s questionable here is the James Comey-like timing of that charging decision, just 35 days before an election, which can only be interpreted as the further politicization of the justice system, something voters in the era of Donald Trump should consider offensive.
Is there anything in politics today that somebody somehow won’t tie to Trump?
