Posted on 04/30/2019 2:22:17 AM PDT by Libloather
Chicago's top prosecutor, Kim Foxx, has been subpoenaed to appear in court in relation to her handling of the Jussie Smollett case. The Cook County State's Attorney has been summoned by retired appellate judge Sheila OBrien, who is pushing for a special prosecutor to investigate the case against the Empire actor, reported The Chicago-Sun Times.
The Times reports that O'Brien has also requested that Foxxs top deputy, Joseph Magats, appear at the hearing and produce documents from the original case to assure that they have not been altered or destroyed and will not be destroyed throughout this case, according to court documents.
According to The Chicago Tribune, OBrien also filed a notice to appear request in order to try and get Smollett to attend the hearing. Under Illinois state law, if a person fails to attend court after a notice to appear has been formally issued, a summons or warrant of arrest may be put out in their name.

It’s a bad thing, lying on the stand.
Could get interesting.
Maybe they will just take the 5th.
You have a legit point. Putting Jussie on the stand means he has to swear an oath and put himself into dire circumstances. It’s about now that I would (if I were him) admit drug usage and I don’t remember much of anything from that period.
A fifth usually works for me :)
Seriously, the 5th pretty much implies you don’t want to lie and get hit with perjury and you don’t want to tell the truth and get hit with that crime :)
I saw a video on youtube about that real life mobster from “Casino”, Nick Spollatro, or something like that, (I’m of Italian ancestry and I can’t remember the spelling!!) take the 5th about A HUNDRED TIMES!!
I don’t know why he was even called in front of the congressional committee.
He started with the drug thing when it looked like he was screwed.
Once Clinton’s woman got involved, he felt safe and talked smack.
Now he is screwed, blued and tattooed.
Dont forget, they both have pigment protection. 👎
Or they give him immunity to tell the truth. Then nail foxx.
The sandwich you can’t drop!
She oughta be Exhibit A in Anthropology class.....at the very least.
Say what you will about Subway...but I like me a Cold Cut Combo on occasion.
"In 1970 Davis was implicated by more than 20 witnesses in a plot to free her imprisoned lover, fellow Black Panther George Jackson, by hijacking a Marin County, California courtroom and taking hostage the judge, the prosecuting assistant district attorney, and two jurors.
In an ensuing gun battle outside the court building, Judge Harold Haleys head was blown off by a sawed-off shotgun owned by Ms. Davis.
To avoid arrest for her alleged complicity in the plot, Ms. Davis fled California, using aliases and changing her appearance to avoid detection.
Two months later, Davis was arrested by the FBI in New York City."
Check out what it says on the idiot's shirt...
"Huey" is one of the founders of the cop-killing, revolutionary communist, Black Panthers.
And "Angela", well, you know, read her bio above.
From the Maoist Internationist Movement:
[1960s/original] Black Panther Party [BPP] Archives
From the article: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES
"On May 1st, May Day , the day of the gigantic Free Huey [Newton] rally, two of Alioto's top executioners vamped on the brothers from the Brown Community who were attending to their own affairs. These brothers, who are endowed with the revolutionary spirit of the Black Panther Party defended themselves from the racist pig gestapo [the police].
Pig Joseph Brodnik received his just reward with a big hole in the chest. Pig Paul McGoran got his in the mouth which was not quite enough to off him.
The revolutionary brothers escaped the huge swarm of pigs with dogs, mace, tanks and helicopters, proving once again that "the spirit of the people is greater than the man's technology."
To these brothers the revolutionary people of racist America want to say, by your revolutionary deed you are heroes, and that you are always welcome to our camp."

"Huey Percy Newton (February 17, 1942 August 22, 1989) was an African-American political activist and revolutionary who, along with Bobby Seale, co-founded the Black Panther Party in 1966. He continued to pursue an education, eventually earning a Ph.D. in social philosophy. In 1989 he was shot and killed in Oakland, California. ..."
"As a student at Merritt College in Oakland, Newton became involved in politics in the Bay Area. He joined the Afro-American Association (AAA), became a prominent member of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity, Beta Tau chapter; and played a role in getting the first African-American history course adopted as part of the college's curriculum.
He read the works of Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Frantz Fanon, Malcolm X, Mao Zedong, Émile Durkheim, and Che Guevara.
During his time at Merritt College, he met Bobby Seale, and the two organized the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in October 1966."
"During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP [The Revolutionary Communist Party] -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.
Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"
"NEVER FORGET that Maxine Waters embraced Damien Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at truck driver Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over this innocent mans battered body. Maxine Waters even visited Damien Williams mother to offer her support.
Williams was sent to prison on a single felony charge of mayhem, but when his accomplices got off, Waters joined in the celebration. Damien Williams was released a few years later and went on to [commit] murder... Also, no surprise, he was a member of the Crips."
Maxine Waters on the Los Angeles riots of 1992 (Rodney King riots):
"In defense of the people that looted stores and damaged property, [Maxine] Waters said 'If you call it a riot it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion.'
She also said it was 'a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice' and 'The anger in my district is righteous. I'm just as angry as they are'. "
Below are the names and photos of 35 Police Officers who were murdered by the Black Panthers and the subsequent Black Liberation Army in the 60s, 70s and 80s [click link for list and details].
The Black Liberation Army was an organization that grew out of the Black Panther Party, composed of former Black Panther Party members, operating from about 1971-1980. Another two police officers on the list were murdered by the Weather Underground, a domestic terrorist group with ties to the Black Liberation Army.
Despite this readily available information, today the internet was full of articles criticizing those who were upset by Beyonces Super Bowl Halftime performance, and questioning how anyone could be upset over a woman affirming her blackness. Their analysis couldnt have been more off.
We have no issues with someone affirming their blackness or any other identity they want to affirm. We do take issue when people pay homage to a group that used terrorism and violence to promote racism and revolutionary socialism a group that murdered dozens of police officers in cold blood.
As you scroll through the list of officers below, look at their photos and read their stories. Among these officers are black men and white men. Rookies and veterans from across the country. Most were killed in unprovoked attacks and ambushes. They all left behind families .
Perhaps Beyonce, someone from the NFL, and someone representing CBS, could read through this list and tell us if they still stand by their decision to honor the Black Panthers during the Super Bowl. Then perhaps they could explain their answers to the surviving wives and children of these fallen officers. ...
Fitty years later and Colon still don’t got no job.
One of the Spilotro bothers. They ended up face down in an Indiana cornfield as I recall.
