Michelle Obama’s involvement in one criminal case is mind blowing.
A high-profile criminal case out of Chicago rocked the nation.
And now the FBI has stepped in to investigate.
And Michelle Obama’s involvement with this case is mind-blowing.
Americans from both sides of the political spectrum were shocked and horrified by the dropped charges of accused felon Jussie Smollett.
His hoax of claiming two Trump supporters had attacked him resulted in a full-scale police investigation that cost millions of taxpayer dollars and involved thousands of police hours.
Smollett had been charged with 17 separate felonies and misdemeanors after evidence was found that he hired two Nigerian brothers to rough him up in a staged attack.
State’s Attorney Kim Foxx now finds herself under scrutiny by the President of the Fraternal Order of Police, Kevin Graham, who alleges that Foxx interfered with the investigation and influenced the decision to drop all charges against Smollett.
According to NBC Chicago, the Chicago Police Union is asking for the Justice Department to investigate Foxx’s role in travesty of justice, as well as corruption and cronyism.
But it appears that lawyer and Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, Tina Tchen, was secretly involved as well.
Few Americans believe Tchen was simply freelancing.
Critics contend any action she took, Michelle Obama must have known about.
It turns out that Tchen had been texting and calling Foxx to try and get the charges dropped and the case turned over to the FBI, something Smollett’s family was pushing for.
And it gets worse from there.
A judge has now placed a gag order on the release of any information regarding Smollett’s case. In fact, most of the documentation has already been deleted.
However, it appears the FBI is looking into the Police Union’s charges.
In a series of tweets sent out by local Chicago ABC reporter Rob Elgas, he says he was told by multiple law enforcement officials that the FBI is “reviewing” the case.
BREAKING: Two law enforcement officials briefed on the matter tell @ABC the FBI is *reviewing* circumstances surrounding dismissal of criminal charges against Jussie Smollett. ABC News is told this is not an investigation. It is a "review" or "inquiry".

Mr. Elgas also retweeted President Trump, who also stated that the FBI and DOJ would be reviewing the case.

The efforts to delete, destroy, expunge and seal Smollett’s case have observers wondering just what Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx is hiding.
When news first broke that Smollett had become a criminal suspect in his own attack, Foxx announced she was recusing herself from the case.
As The Chicago Sun-Times reported, Foxx’s supposed recusal was due to “conversations she’d had with a relative of the actor.”
These “conversations” were with Tchen, who reached out to Foxx on behalf of the Smollett family and possibly other interested parties.
However, there are also reports that Foxx didn’t really recuse herself at all.
If she had, it would have resulted in assigning a special prosecutor to the case, which did not happen.
Instead, Foxx handed the case to her underling, the First Assistant State’s Attorney, Joseph Magats.
This story is quickly evolving as more damaging information of the corruption comes out.
