President Trump Praises Appointment of Special Prosecutor in Jussie Smollett Hate Hoax Case

President Donald Trump commended an Illinois judge’s appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate improprieties surrounding Jussie Smollett’s court case.

Dan Webb, a prominent Chicago defense attorney with significant experience serving as a special prosecutor, will investigate the justice system’s handling of Smollett’s court case. Smollett was charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct after Chicago police became convinced he orchestrated an elaborate hate hoax to make himself appear as a victim of a racist attack.

Smollett actually paid two Nigerian brothers(who have since admitted to their involvement in the hoax) $3,500 to play the role of racist Trump supporters in carrying out a fake “attack” on him.

The 16 criminal charges of disorderly conduct were inexplicably dropped by Chicago prosecutors without any real explanation, leaving law enforcement furious that the hoaxster wouldn’t be held accountable for his criminal hoax. Webb will now investigate Cook County Attorney Kim Foxx’s suspect actions in the case, and will have the power to levy new criminal charges against Smollett.

President Trump welcomed the development in a Friday tweet.

If Smollett is held accountable after being let off the hook on account of his insider connections with Chicago prosecutors, progressive prosecutors accustomed to using their offices to enforce their own personal political preferences will be put on notice.

Even Chicago’s Democratic former mayor Rahm Emanuel has slammed the inexplicable decision to let the Empire actor off the hook after being caught red-handed organizing a dishonest and attention-seeking hoax.

Holding Smollett to task for his publicity-seeking stunt will also send a message to potential hate hoaxsters in an era when fake hate crime scams are reaching all-time highs.
