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.
