    CHICAGO (FOX 32 NEWS) - A Cook County judge selected former U.S. attorney Dan Webb to be the special prosecutor overseeing the investigation into the handling of the Jussie Smollett case.

    Webb is arguably Chicago's most high-profile defense attorney of the last few decades and has been tapped five times previously to serve as a special prosecutor. Webb gained prominence for his lead role during the Operation Greylord investigations into judicial corruption in Cook County.

    "I don't know where this case is going. The facts will take me where I they take me," he said, adding that he couldn't provide a precise timetable but would move the investigation along as quickly as possible.
    AG Barr ‘spygate’ investigation into DOJ and FBI conduct so far indicates that for the first time in American history, the police and national security apparatus was used to spy on the Trump campaign.

    Good.

    The little **** needs to be held accountable in some regard for the damage he did.

    While this additional special prosecutor may be needed I would suggest that the costs of it come from the regular prosecutor's office budget - fire an equivalent amount of folks to make this become budget neutral.

    More damage was done by those who made this special prosecutor's appointment necessary. How many other criminal cases were "disappeared" by those clowns running that "just us" system?

    Yet, it seems that is not what is being investigated. I say forget recharging Smollett, and investigate the folks who dumped that and likely many other cases.

    I think it is a waste of time, energy and money fooling with the Smollet case. Yes, certainly some trivial rule or law was broken, but he has been shamed and will likely never be hired again as an actor. His career is ruined, as well it should be.

    What purpose will be served if he is prosecuted and imprisoned for such a petty offense?

    One word.... Consequence! Play stupid games win stupid prizes! It was not petty... he tried and succeed for a short to stir up more racial hate because of the lie he told. This was a planned and premeditated crime.
    Jail time is up to a jury or a judge.

    He tried to make trump supporters out to be racists. Seems to be a double standard going on and yes he should be prosecuted for all of his crimes.

    Further down in the article Foxx attempts to play the race card as well
    Foxx has said*Smollett was treated no differently*than thousands of other defendants in low-level cases whose charges have been similarly dropped. Foxx also publicly wondered if her being black has anything to do with the criticism she has received.
    Is it fair for others to publicly wonder if her being black has anything to do with her decission to not prosecute him?

    Maybe we should investigate her record as a prosecutor and see if she prosecutes whites more aggressively than blacks, since she raised the question of her race being a factor in this.
