Judge appoints ex-U.S. Attorney Dan Webb to investigate Jussie Smollett case

Source: Chicago Sun-Times

A judge on Friday appointed former U.S. Attorney Dan K. Webb as the special prosecutor to lead the investigation into a hate crime hoax allegedly plotted by Jussie Smollett and how Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx handled the criminal charges against the now former “Empire” actor.

One of the most high-profile lawyers in Chicago, Webb was the top federal prosecutor in Chicago from 1981 to 1985. He has won the convictions of corrupt Cook County judges and a former national security adviser. It’s the second time Judge Michael Toomin has appointed Webb as a special prosecutor in a case.

2. Yeah,I'm sick and tired of celebrities and 1 percenters getting away with everything...

Chicago has enough problems without knuckleheads like Smollet wasting 10's of thousands of dollars of city and police resources and then walking away with a slap on the hand.
