Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx is recusing herself from the investigation into the alleged racist and homophobic attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett last month in Chicago. Foxx’s office said the decision was made to address potential questions of impartiality based upon familiarity with potential witnesses in the case. Chicago police are looking into whether Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack on him last month in Chicago. The brothers met with detectives and prosecutors yesterday.
