Tina Tchen fighting to quash subpeona in Jussie Smollet case

 

May 31st was suppose to be D-Day for one Tina Tchen in the Chicago Smollet case. For a refresher she’s a close pal of Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett and a longtime bagwoman for Illinois Democrats.

Tchen headed up the “Office of Public Engagement,” a murky outfit overseen by Jarrett that, among other things, had its hands in the Obama’s failed Chicago Crony-lympics bid and was in the middle of Obama administration efforts to recruit artists to advance their political agenda.

Pointed out in November 2009 is that Tchen, a high-powered campaign finance bundler for Team Obama who personally raised more than $200,000 while a lawyer at Skadden Arps, is listed in White House visitor logs as having met there with none other than…  George Soros.

Color me confused. But then again, this is Chicago. Last week I posted

Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff Tchen refuses Subpoena in Smollett Case

Check it out for the background in case you missed it.

It looked like Appeal’s Court judge O’Brien had in mind to clean up Chicago a bit. Looks like a no go. Here is the latest with the Sun Times newspaper taking a different flavor on the facts:

Tchen is resisting a subpoena that is an outgrowth of a civil case filed by retired former state of Illinois Appeals Court Judge Sheila O’Brien, who has filed multiple legal bids related to the Smollett case and the handling of it by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.

Why O’Brien is so actively interested in the case has not yet become clear.

O’Brien jumped in the case in April, asking a judge to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Foxx.

The brief filed to support Tchen’s motion to quash argues O’Brien has no business asking for a special prosecutor or any information because she “holds no position or authority within the Illinois justice system. Yet, she claims the power not only to institute this proceeding, but to compel Ms. Tchen to participate by appearing in court to testify and produce documents, and submitting to an ‘evidence deposition.’”

Moreover, the brief argues, O’Brien “has no legal right to make her demands of Ms. Tchen and, even if Petitioner did, those demands are inconsistent with the applicable rules of discovery and not supported by any showing of good cause.”

Benjamin B. Klubes, managing partner of Buckley LLP said in a statement, “We filed a motion today asking the court not to allow Sheila O’Brien to collect documents and take testimony from Tina Tchen in connection with Ms. O’Brien’s petition to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Jussie Smollett matter.

Last week:

Chicago attorney Tina Tchen — who was in contact with Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx before the charges were dropped against former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett — refused to be served with a subpoena on Wednesday, according to the process server.

Tchen, who previously served as former First Lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, refused to accept a subpoena that was issued by former Illinois Appellate Judge Sheila O’Brien.

O’Brien is petitioning for the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the state’s attorney’s office’s handling of the Smollett case. She is calling for Tchen to attend a May 31 hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse and bring with her copies of “any and all documents, notes, phone records, texts, tape recordings made or received at any time, concerning [Tchen’s] conversations with Kim Foxx in re: Jussie Smollett.”

Edward Ryan, who operates a private investigation firm in the southwest suburbs, said one of his process servers went to Tchen’s law firm in River North on Wednesday, but she refused to come to the lobby to accept the subpoena.

Ryan said the security guard in the building’s lobby would not let the process server upstairs. The guard called Tchen in her office and “she said she knew about” the subpoena, but refused to come down.

Keep reading…

Maybe this is why Sheila is so interested.

BREAKING: Texts between Obama aide Tina Tchen and Kim Foxx, who dropped charges against Jussie Smollett, have leaked. An investigation into whether Foxx dropped charges against Smollett at the request of Tina Tchen is underway. Michelle Obama also knew Smollett very well

Other than this, all is well in the swamp.

Jussie Smollett and mystery BFF ‘Nigerian Bros’ – one charged before with attempted murder

 

Just when you think the swamp couldn’t get any deeper or more bizarre, up pops Chicago. . I would say Jussie did himself just fine.  What a cast of characters. We have George Soros. The Obama clan. One Valerie Jarrett lurking out there some where. A presidential candidate by the name of Kamela Harris.

For more about them

 

And the unsung mystery heroes – unreported – the so-called “Nigerian Brothers.”  Who without them there would be no story.

 

Jussie Smollett’s attorney, Patricia Browne Holmes, today said the Nigerian brothers committed the hate crime against her client. Tonight she said she has “no idea” what their motive could have been.

 

 

A flashback:

It’s interesting that after weeks of coverage of Jussie Smollett there has been little if any discussion of the background of the two participants in the faux attack. “Abel” and “Ola” Osundairo.

Appears to be a Ola Facebook photo

The narrative created is a couple of nice “kids” just coming forth doing the right thing. Choir boys. Doing all they can to make things right. Innocent bystanders in this theater of the absurd. Forget this whole thing wouldn’t have gone down without them.

Maybe Ola, nicknamed “Juice”, may have helped Jussie with a drug or two…for a price. Oh, by the way, Ola had a charge of attempted murder…stabbed a guy… but I am sure it was just a one-off.

I did hear one vague reference that one may have been on probation, but no reason mentioned.

So I scoured what was out there and came up with portions of the following sources:

 

Chicago Sun Times :

…….

Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo were unknown to most of the world until recently, when authorities revealed that the brothers — who are known as “Abel” and “Ola” — were intimately involved in the alleged bogus attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

Public records paint a picture of two men in dire financial straits. Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo, 27, was also no stranger to violence.

Court records show that Olabinjo Osundairo was charged with attempted murder in a 2011 stabbing that occurred in the 4200 block of North Ashland. That is less than a block from the home that police raided in the Smollett investigation, where they recovered personal effects, including cell phones, a source said.

Olabinjo Osundairo reached a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to aggravated battery; he was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay a $674 fine. (Ed: It’s Chicago don’t forget.)

……

Court records show both men filed for bankruptcy in September 2016 and collectively owed more than $120,000 in student loans.

At the time, neither brother reported having a full-time job. Their monthly incomes, they said, were $160 and $142, which they earned from various odd jobs.

….

Abimbola Osundairo, in his bankruptcy filing, claimed an interest in investing. He reported that he owned four shares of a pharmaceutical company, one share of Berkshire Hathaway and one share of Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce company. He valued the shares at $300 at the time, though a single share of Berkshire Hathaway was worth more than $200,000 at the time of the filing.

(Ed: Otherwise known as fraud. Heck doesn’t every guy in the hood have a share or two of Berkshire Hathaway?)

…..

In 2017, Olabinjo Osundairo co-founded a home remodeling company. In his bio on the company’s website, he says he has three degrees, including a master’s degree in business and a bachelor’s degree in management. The other company co-founder could not be reached.

 

AP News

Abimbola Osundairo, 25, graduated from Lake View High School in Chicago, where he participated in football, track and field, soccer, and wrestling, before joining the football team at Quincy University in western Illinois, according to a football profile on the university’s website. Olabinjo Osundairo, 27, also was on the Quincy football team and had attended Latmos Comprehensive College in Lagos, Nigeria, according to his football profile.

The brothers are bodybuilders who have developed an online following and have dabbled in acting and at least one failed business venture, according to social media posts and news reports.

 

It appears that this is Ola’s Facebook though I have not been able to double confirm this, you decide:

In December 2018, Ola uploaded a picture of him and his brother modeling “Winter Face Masks” for $20 to Facebook. The pair also modeled hooded sweatshirts, vests and baseball caps with the logo “Team Abel,” which is Abel’s Instagram handle.

 

Ola and his brother were both football players at Quincy University, having also attended Lakeview High School in Chicago together. According to Ola’s official profile on the school’s website, he played a total of four games at varsity level during his time at the school between 2011 and 2014. In the 2013 season, Ola recorded a solo tackle. That profile describes Ola has having two brothers, one of whom, Abel, was a defensive back for the Quincy Hawks. The bio also says that Ola attended Latmos Comprehensive College in Lagos, Nigeria. The piece names their father as Lanre Osundairo.

Did Smollett Subway sandwich foil his perfect crime?

 

Let’s think about this. The poor fellow Smollett is attacked. Bleach thrown at him. A noose placed around his neck. But bless his heart. Through it all he hung on to his cell phone, but most importantly he hung onto his Subway sandwich. What a guy.

 

Smollett reported to police that at 2 a.m. on Jan. 29, he was returning to his apartment – a Subway sandwich bag in one hand and holding his cellphone in the other – when two white men wearing ski masks attacked him. He claims they yelled, “This is MAGA country” and other racial and homophobic slurs, tossing a liquid substance on him, later determined to be bleach. Carrying a noose, they placed it around Smollett’s neck.

Fighting them off, he escaped. Not only did the courageous Jussie not run off, he never lost his Subway sandwich. What an inspiration to young gay boys everywhere!

Lots of good snarky comments over at Biz Pac Review

@RaferWeigel

This would suggest that either the “Empire” actor never dropped his sub during the terrifying attack he described, or that after being viciously attacked and left with a rope around his neck, he was still of the frame of mind to search for and retrieve his sandwich.

Even though he was allegedly doused in bleach.

Keep in mind that Smollett also said he was on his cell phone when the alleged attack occurred — never mind that he did not use that phone to immediately call police, waiting about 40 minutes to do so.

Film footage of the final leg of Smollett’s trek that morning showed him entering his apartment lobby, cellphone and sandwich bag in hand, passing the night security person in the lobby, making no effort to immediately contact police. Read more at WND

Jussie Smollett’s Best Actor Oscar Nomination

Let me be frank.

Blacks kill Whites a lot, and hurt and kill cops a lot

Ok. I have had it. I want my T.V. back. Stop it. Stop agitating for a race war. Stop wanting our guns. Blacks kill Whites a lot Yes. They Do. American Thinker gives us a breakdown in the last couple of weeks of what they have done to cops. Then I give you the crime of the Century. Blacks kill and torture a wonderful white couple. Here we go:

The reason for the demonstration was simple and beyond pushback:

White cops shoot black people all over the country, all the time, for no reason whatsoever.

Everybody knows that. So sad.

Some took it to the next level: The head of a black group called Dallas Action said the killings were a wake up call to let people know how cops are picking on black people.

All the time.

For no reason whatsoever.  The local Fox reporter in Dallas took the comments in stride, quickly changing the topic to all the pretty lights on nearby police cars.

Not one reporter at any point even hinted at how black violence is wildly out of proportion.

Not one reporter talked to any cop willing to tell the truth about how police are relentless victims of black hostility and violence and murder — all over the country.

And how black on cop violence and defiance are now the default response.

American Thinker takes us on “A brief magical mystery tour of black on cop violence over the last few weeks” over at the American Thinker: Read more: American Thinker

And you want to know the case of the century? 4 Blacks Torture, Rape, Mutilate and Kill White Couple. Go to link for original post.

Why wasn’t this Knoxville story, “4 blacks kill white couple” on the TV  network news for months? How does the media decide which murders to  sensationalize? 

“Christian and Newsom were leaving an apartment together to go to a friend’s  party when they were abducted from the apartment complex parking lot.

According to the testimony of the Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr.  Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan at the subsequent trial of Eric Boyd, Newsom was  repeatedly sodomized with an object and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet  bound and his head covered. Barefoot, he was dragged outside the house to a set  of nearby railroad tracks. He was sexually mutilated, shot in the back of his  head, neck and back and his body was then set on fire.
