Kamala Harris now 'completely confused' by Jussie Smollett case

Kamala Harris now 'completely confused' by Jussie Smollett case

He agreed to forfeit the bond and performed 16 hours of volunteer service Saturday and Monday for the Rainbow Push Coalition, which the Rev. Jesse Jackson founded.

According to Foxx, during her tenure since taking office in December 2016, her office has disposed of 5,700 felony cases through alternative prosecution.

After showing a clip from the Chicago P.D. press conference following Smollett's charges being dropped - where the police claimed justice wasn't served and Smollett owes the city an apology - Huntsman said, "There's a reason I think why we all feel so confused here, because when we watched that [clip] we were angry with the police".

It was, he said, "a whitewash of justice". Emanuel asked. "You can not have, because of a person's position, one set of rules apply to them and another set of rules apply to everybody else". "I would never, if someone falsely accused me, I would never hide behind a brokered deal in secrecy, period", Johnson said Tuesday.

But the dropped charges don't mean he's guiltless in the prosecutor's eyes.

"We are grateful for the work that they have done on this case, but this outcome is not an outlier to similarly situated cases. We were ready to fight the charges and they're the ones who voluntarily discontinued the matter, so I think that speaks volumes".

"We stand by the Chicago Police Department's investigation and our approval of charges", the Cook County State's Attorney's Office said.

An ABC report suggested that federal authorities already were investigating Smollett's claim of getting a letter threat.

The dismissal drew a swift backlash from the mayor and police chief and raised questions about why Smollett was not forced to admit what prosecutors had said they could prove in court - that the entire episode was a publicity stunt.

Powerball Jackpot Now $750 Million After No Winning Ticket Drawn

Although the FOP wasn't certain it could get an investigation into Foxx's office before, Graham now says he believes there is enough evidence - and enough national outrage - to warrant a second look. "I've been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one".

The decision to file a fresh set of charges against Jussie Smollett now rests in the hands of John Lausch, Chicago's US Attorney who was handpicked by President Trump.

Foxx denied that Tchen or the Obamas tried to convince her to drop the case.

The case has sparked political discord in one of America's largest cities. "He's asking for this,"' she said.

First Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Magats said prosecutors "stand behind the investigation and the facts". In a text message to a Smollett family member, Foxx confirmed that she had made the request.

Taraji added that she always believed him "because I know him and I know his track record".

"The statute says that the maximum that we're allowed to get for restitution is $10,000".

In an interview with AP earlier this month, she said the brothers regretted their involvement.
