TOM FITTON: Yes, Judicial Watch Will Investigate Jussie Smollett Scandal
Tom Fitton reassured Americans on Tuesday that Judicial Watch will be investigating the Jussie Smollett scandal after crooked Chicago prosecutors dropped all 16 charges against the hate crime hoaxer in a stunning display of lawlessness.
“Yes, Judicial Watch will investigate Smollett scandal,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a tweet Tuesday.

Chicago police are furious over Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s decision to drop all charges against Jussie Smollett.
There are plenty of documents that Judicial Watch can obtain through FOIA lawsuits.
Smollett reached a deferred prosecution deal and the judge sealed his case.
Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson said in a presser on Tuesday that prosecutors brokered a deal in secret to circumvent the judicial system.
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx was communicating with Tina Tchen, a former aide to Barack and Michelle Obama about Jussie Smollett’s case shortly after the ‘Empire’ actor staged the hate hoax crime.
Tina Tchen sent Kim Foxx an email on February 1st saying, “Hi Kim – I sent an email to your work address I think as well. I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation. I am on an 8 am flight to nyc but please call me before then. I land about 1015 Chicago time. My cell is [redacted]. Many thanks!”
In one text exchange with a Smollett relative (name is redacted), Kim Foxx is reassuring the individual that she spoke to the superintendent and asked for a favor.
The individual reached out to Foxx on February 1st and said, “Hi Kim, this is [redacted] Are you available to chat? Tina Tchen gave me your number.” Kim Foxx engaged in a back and forth text exchange with the individual about Smollett’s case. “I’ll keep you posted, “Foxx said in a text. “Omg this would be a huge victory,” the Smollett relative said in response. “I make no guarantees, but I’m trying.” Foxx replied.
Kim Foxx later recused herself from the case.
The Police Union wants federal investigators to determine whether Kim Foxx broke the law.
