Ann Coulter Slams Kim Foxx in Jussie Smollett Decision, Cites Prosecutor's Campaign Funding From Smollett's Attorney

Republican commentator Ann Coulter slammed Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx for dropping charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett. Coulter wasted no time pointing at what some see a problem with Foxx's decision, as rumors swirl she may have acted illegally throughout her time on the Smollett case.

"Oh, I see," Coulter said on Twitter. "Kim Foxx, the Chicago prosecutor who dropped Jussie Smollett charges was put there by George Soros." Soros is Smollett's attorney. Coulter linked a 2016 article written by The Chicagoist, which claimed some of Foxx's campaign donations for her current position came from Soros.

News broke Tuesday morning that Smollett would be expunged of all charges against him. The Chicago Police Department initially investigated Smollett's alleged attack as a legitimate complaint, but later turned their attention to Smollett as a suspect, who could have staged the attack. Smollett has maintained his innocence, and said two men attacked him in the early hours of the morning on January 29. He explained the men tied a noose around his neck and threw bleach on him, all while yelling homophobic and racial slurs.

Nearly immediately after the news of Smollett's dismissed charges, other voices joined Coulter in claiming something could be seriously wrong with Foxx's lack of prosecution on the case. Rumors currently state the Chicago Police Department is upset with Foxx's decision, and may still consider Smollett was never a real victim, according to WFLD reporter Rafer Weigel on Twitter. Weigel explained the CPD "are furious over SA Kim Foxx's decision to drop all charges against."

The Chicago Police Union has already asked for an investigation into Foxx's decision, and her behavior from the start of Smollett's case, according to WGN Chicago. Coulter commented on the possibility of an investigation. "THIS is exactly why we have federal civil rights laws," she tweeted Tuesday. "Feds were needed to smash corruption of justice based on racial prejudice."

A Facebook group for the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police spoke against Foxx on Monday night, before any decision in the Smollett case was announced. The post claimed Foxx is known for "giving breaks" to those who should be punished. "The FOP demands that all elected officials and top members of the Chicago Police Department immediately condemn Kimberly Foxx, including Mayoral candidate Toni Preckwinkle, who has been an outspoken advocate of Foxx in her quest to become the county's top prosecutor," the post read.
