Default All charges against Smollett dismissed

Well apparently it's ok to make up false felony's as long as Trump is the target.

So everyone get out there and do it some more, and blame it on Trump. It is not against the law anymore.

Republicans be warned! This WILL NOT work if a Democrat is the target.

When criminal justice is supplanted by social justice there is no justice.

We will probably hear the same thing about Avenatti's case in a couple months. Good Democrats and Trump haters are above the law.

And this is what happened.... a fine by any other name, is still a fine...

Quote:
The judge also granted a motion to seal the record in the case, Patricia Brown Holmes, Smollett’s lawyer, told reporters inside the Leighton Criminal Court Building in Chicago. She also said the actor voluntarily agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bond to the city of Chicago.
So for a $10,000 fine, he will effectively have no record.

Sleaze.

Yeah, he is a lucky guy. It helps when you live in Chicago, Act in Hollywood, and above all you are a Trump hater. Hell, he could get away with murder probably.

This came as a shock to me. Thought for sure there was compelling evidence. Maybe the judge knows something we don't.

1. Smollett is a liberal/Democrat
2. This is Chicago after all
3. He's a Trump hater
4. He's black

4 reasons he got off.

I think it's 100K.

I haven't followed this enough to know, but I think bond is to insure appearance. I wasn't aware that he had failed to show. So yeah, it does sound like a prepaid fine.

No judge was involved.

It was a decision of the State's Attorney Kim Foxx by herself, without any consultation with anyone it seems.

The same woman who recused herself from the case because she was talking to Jussie Smollett's family members in the days after the "incident" was reported.

The same woman who talked to Tina Tchen, Moochelle Obama's chief of staff and close friend of Dead Fish Rahm's wife when Smollett began to fall under suspicion.

Here is the Bond Proffer, sounds like nothing to me:

So he put up $100,000 as bail which ostensibly he gets back when he shows up for court.

But in return for the city keeping the money, he gets to claim he's innocent.

Sounds like a bribe to me.
