Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx is questioning the timing of the new indictment against Jussie Smollett. Foxx believes the decision by Special Prosecutor Dan Webb to charge Smollett is a political move since she is running for re-election this year. Her campaign issued a statement blasting the “James Comey-like timing” of the charges being filed 35-days before next month’s primary election. Comey is the former FBI director who was criticized for announcing a new investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails just days before the 2016 presidential election. Foxx has faced continued scrutiny after her office dropped charges last year accusing Smollett of staging a phony hate crime against himself in Chicago.
