Jussie Smollett Case Will Likely Play Out Over 2020 Election
Also there was an attempt to get the prosecutor dismissed; but the judge said no.
As it stands currently the investigation into the alleged hate crime hoax, committed by Jussie Smollett is on track to reach yet another media climax in the middle of the 2020 presidential election. Last week a Chicago judge ruled to keep special prosecutor Dan Webb on the case despite a campaign to have him removed.
Luckily for Smollett although he is yet again at risk of facing jail time; most of the public outrage is being directed at Dana Foxx, the prosecutor who dropped the charges. In fact that campaign to oust Dan Webb came from people who were concerned that Webb's previous political donations to Foxx were reason for a conflict of interest.
With the case proceeding again, regardless of what the prosecutor decides this will be fodder for the cultural war.

Comedian and internet web host "TJ The Chicago Kid" took to twitter to pen a long tirade accusing the Smollett of being lured out onto the streets of Chicago by predators on a gay dating site like Grindr or Jack'd.
Although TJ doesn't appear to know Jussie or have any insider information on the ongoing investigation. He believe his status as a Chicago native gives him expertise to weigh in. Supporters of Jussie Smollett were quick to deem the Chicago kids's speculation harsh and inaccurate. Still other's began offering theories of their own.
