Kim Foxx, Jussie Smollett's Defense Attorney -- I'm Sorry, My Mistake, Jussie Smollett's "Prosecutor" --Hires Private Lawyer as State Attorney Investigation Into Her Behavior Heats Up

Isn't she lovely.

With election season in high gear, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx and her office have retained some high-powered legal assistance in the ongoing probe of Foxx's controversial handling of the Jussie Smollett case.

Ruben Castillo, the former chief judge of the Northern District of Illinois and now a partner at the politically connected law firm Akerman, has been helping the stateís attorney's office for the past three months to vet voluminous materials requested by special prosecutor Dan Webb.

I don't know this for a fact, but I'm going to say that "vet" the material requested in the probe actually means "plot and scheme to claim that relevant material is not relevant in order to claim as little material as possible conforms to the special prosecutor's demands."

You don't need a top lawyer to merely comply fully with subpeona requests.


In addition, Foxx has brought in well-known Washington, D.C., attorney Michael Bromwich to represent her personally in the Smollett matter, which has become a flashpoint in the Democratic primary.

And... taxypayers are paying for this.

A spokeswoman for Foxx also would not disclose how much Castillo's firm was being paid but said it was not unusual for the office to retain outside legal counsel, particularly in complex civil cases.

A judge has ordered Google to turn over a full year's worth of Jussie Smollett's emails, voicemails, and any other data.

A Cook County judge has ordered Google to turn over Jussie Smollett's emails, photos, location data and private messages for an entire year as part of the special prosecutorís investigation into the purported attack on the actor.

Two sweeping search warrants, obtained by the Chicago Tribune, provide the first public glimpse at the direction of the probe by special prosecutor Dan Webb more than four months into the investigation

Meanwhile, Kim Foxx fundraised with an alderman now indicted for corruption.

And her primary opponent is making an issue of it.

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx's handling of the Jussie Smollett fiasco is already a national joke and embarrassment.

And now, itís getting even worse for Foxx with Bill Conway, her challenger in the March 17 Democratic primary election, publicly pinning notorious and indicted Chicago Ald. Edward Burke, 14th, right on her.

From Smollett to Burke. Uh-oh, Kim.

And this isn't just a matter of being in the same room as a fellow politician.

Oh dear no. Kim Foxx earned Burke's support.

Burke reportedly held a fancy fundraiser for Foxx at his home, and later, a private client of Burke's property tax reduction business received a $2 million property tax break through a settlement with Foxx's office.

And the local governments had to eat it. Who ultimately paid the bill, dear Cook County property taxpayers? Do you really have to ask?

This is your occasional reminder that Kim Foxx -- along with dozens of other leftwingers letting antisemitic arsonists back on the streets -- was bankrolled by George Soros, who realized it would be much cheaper to get dozens of leftwing Marxist pro-crime "prosecutors" elected than to rig elections to get the actual laws changed.
