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.

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.

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

 

This looks like the typical Chicago collection of best pals. What do Michelle Obama, Tina Tchen, George Soros, Kim Foxx and Jussie Smollett have in common?

Nothing that money can’t buy apparently. Yesterday a Chicago judge ordered the court records regarding the sealed Smollett records unsealed.

Who was behind this idea of transferring to the FBI and why did whoever think this would work better than a Chicago investigation? Not known as the bastion of honesty. What is it she doesn’t want to tell? Does she really think she can avoid a Subpoena?

Let’s take a look. The fun begins.

Enter one George Soros:

George Soros Spent $408k on Prosecutor in Jussie Smollett Case

 

George Soros

But Kim Foxx has also found two other sources of cash, in the form of twin $300,000 donations to a Super PAC supporting her called Illinois Safety & Justice. The sole donors to the PAC are neoliberal superdonor and conservative-boogeyman George Soros and a “dark-money” group called Civic Participation Action Fund. A Super PAC is a fundraising group, created by the 2010 Supreme Court Citizens United decision, that can raise as much money as they want for any candidate or cause—as long as they don’t coordinate on any level with political campaigns, which have much smaller campaign limits.

Other than this, all is well in the swamp.

George Soros long fingers in Chicago and DA races, State Secretaries of State

One benefit that has occurred with the Smollett case in Chicago was the name George Soros came to the fore. George has been a very busy man with local and State elections these past years focusing on little appreciated obscure positions in State governments such as Secretarys of State. These are critical positions that handle elections. Lately he has moved on to District Attorneys.

Example A:

Michelle Obama and Chief of Staff Tina Tchen

One Tina Tchen who greased the skids for Smollett via Foxx.

Tchen is a close pal of Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett and a longtime bag woman for Illinois Democrats

George Soros Spent $408k on Prosecutor in Jussie Smollett Case

Kim Foxx

Then we had State Attorney FOXX. 

Left-wing billionaire mega-donor George Soros donated $408,000 in 2016 to a super PAC that supported Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, whose office prosecuted — and dropped — the Jussie Smollett case

Law Enforcement Today

 

George Soros, the billionaire of progressive-slash-socialist and globalist causes the world over, has been busy buying his way into local district attorney campaigns in the United States. He has found he can get a lot of bang for his bucks in these races.

George Soros

Talk about trying to turn the judicial system into an activist camp for the left.

It’s one thing to exercise one’s First Amendment rights to support candidates with similar political leanings. It’s another thing entirely to try and collapse a limited government republic, from the bottom up, and implement, in its place, a judicial branch filled with people who twist the Bill of Rights into something it’s not, the Constitution into something it was never intended to be, and the rule of law into a mocking tool for far-left gain.

In California alone:

He was referring to the big money that Soros, via his funding of progressive-minded California Justice & Publicly Safety PAC, is tossing into several local D.A. races. In Contra Costa, a Soros-tied PAC has kicked in $100,000-plus to support the leftist candidate; in Alameda County, more than $550,000 of Soros-tied money has gone to a hard-core civil rights attorney fighting for the comparatively conservative District Attorney Nancy O’Malley’s seat. Another $400,000 or so of Soros money’s gone toward the Sacramento County district attorney race.

Washington Times

But the real deal are the State Secretary offices. Think it doesn’t matter? Look what happened with having Mark Ritchie Secretary of State in Minnesota and the Al Franken win. Who is Mark Ritchie?

Ritchie in the 1990s had been a member of the now-defunct socialist New Party.[20] Moreover, he has ideological ties to the Communist Party USA and has been described by communist Tim Wheeler as a “friend” of the Party.

It gave us Obamacare with the 60th vote.

Minnesota’s November election for U.S. Senate, Republican incumbent Norm Coleman finished 725 votes ahead of Democratic challenger Al Franken; the thin margin of victory, however, triggered an automatic recount. With Mark Ritchie presiding over the recount process during the ensuing weeks, Coleman’s lead gradually dwindled due to what journalist Matthew Vadum describes as a long series of “appalling irregularities” that invariably benefited Franken.

As USA Today reported at the time: “The political battle for control of the federal government has opened up a new front: the obscure but vital state offices that determine who votes and how those votes are counted.”[11]

The Secretary of State Project (SoSP) was established in July 2006 as an independent “527” organization devoted to helping Democrats get elected to the office of secretary-of-state in selected swing, or battleground, states.

One of the principal duties of the secretary of state is to serve as the chief election officer who certifies candidates as well as election results in his or her state.[2] The holder of this office, then, can potentially play a key role in determining the winner of a close election. Funding included George Soros. Other players were Mark Ritchie.

To establish “election protection” against similar disappointments in subsequent political races, SoSP in 2006 targeted its funding efforts on the secretary-of-state races in seven swing states: Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, and Ohio.[10]

Democrats emerged victorious in five of those seven elections, all except Colorado and Michigan. Politico.com would later characterize SoSP as “an administrative firewall” designed, “in anticipation of a photo-finish presidential election,” to protect Democrats’ “electoral interests in … the most important battleground states.”[12]

In 2008, SoSP supported Democratic secretary-of-state candidates in Missouri, Montana, Oregon and West Virginia; all four Democrats won. These results represented yet another high return on a relatively small financial investment for SoSP.

All going as planned. George Soros sponsored this little number Foxx as DA. Purpose? To break down the final thin blue line and society as a whole. To create this very angst. It is the Alinsky and Cloward-Piven way. The latest shiny object to keep us off our toes and overwhelm the system.

Other than that, all’s 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

Rafer Weigel

@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

Kamela Harris’s friend Jussie Smollett and recused D.A. Kim Foxx UPDATE

UPDATE:

Let’s take a stroll down the rabbit hole. Hang with me. I am about to spin a tale. Keep your eye on the dates. I think Harris knows a lot more than she cares to share.

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.

I pointed out in November 2009 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. From Michelle Malkin

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Among the many moves afoot, Tina Tchen, who is responsible for working with outside groups, is preparing to move to the East Wing to serve as First Lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, according to two Democrats close to the White House.

Tchen may be filling a new position, but she is no newcomer to Washington politics.  Tchen has been a longtime friend and political ally of the Obamas and is close friends with White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, another Chicago veteran associate of the first couple.

How about these guys? BFF of  Jussie Smollett –

Back to the original story:

From Senator Harris office:  October 11, 2018

Senate Judiciary Committee Advances Anti-Lynching Legislation Introduced by Harris, Booker, and Scott

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously voted to advance the bipartisan Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018, historic legislation that would criminalize lynching, attempts to lynch, and conspiracy to lynch for the first time in American history.

The legislation was originally introduced in June 2018 by U.S. Senators Kamala D. Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Tim Scott (R-SC).

“Lynching is a dark and despicable part of our country’s history. These were acts of violence, needless and horrendous acts of violence that were motivated by racism. And we must acknowledge that, lest we repeat it,” said Senator Harris, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “These were crimes that were committed against innocent people. These are crimes that should have been prosecuted. There are victims and their families that should have received justice and did not. With this bill, we have a chance to speak the truth about our past make clear that these hateful acts should never happen again.”

Harris Senate Office Press Release

It’s finally official: Kamala Harris is running for president.

She made the announcement on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Enter one Jussie Smollett:  Jan 29, 2019 –

The Chicago Police Department said it is investigating 36-year-old Empire star Jussie Smollett’s report to authorities that he was assaulted early Tuesday morning by two suspects who yelled out “racial and homophobic slurs.” Included was a rope placed around his neck.

The claim by now has fallen apart. No need to rehash the details.

Here’s the story:

she (Harris) said Smollett was the victim of “an attempted modern-day lynching” and called the actor “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know.” Harris has also used the Smollett attack to push legislation that would make lynching a federal hate crime.

Reports are that Smollett supported Harris and worked on her behalf. During an appearance at a bookstore in Concord, N.H., a female reporter asked the senator from California if she wanted to amend a tweet from Jan. 29, in which she said Smollett was the victim of “an attempted modern-day lynching” and called the actor “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know.”

Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker did jump on the hoax first, claiming it’s a “modern-day lynching,” just as they were trying to pass their propaganda bill, The Anti-Lynching Act.

Monica Showalter at American Thinker points to a series of tweets by film producer Tariq Nasheed in which he postulates that the two senators were possibly part of the setup. His tweets are available here.

Nasheed believes it goes beyond the two brothers Ola and Abel and Jussie. As he says in his first two tweets, Harris has campaigned with Jussie. He also says the Lynching Act is a favor to certain groups — white LGBTs — and these two senators are funded by them. More Independent sentinel

“Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris asked. As the reporter specified the tweet in question, Harris appeared to look around for a campaign staffer before responding.

Jussie Smollett attack: Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx recuses herself from investigation

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has recused herself from the investigation surrounding the alleged attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, her office told ABC News on Tuesday.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the decision to recuse herself was made to address potential questions of impartiality based upon familiarity with potential witnesses in the case,” a spokeswoman told ABC News via email.

ABC11

Fox News suggested that the reason may be Kim Foxx knows Kamala Harris. (Does she know Smollett?)

Kim Foxx wants to tell you a story   Dec 10 2018

But more than any of that, it is arguably Foxx’s zest for storytelling — or more particularly, for telling her story — that has captured the attention of both her constituents and celebrities.

She now counts the rapper Common and singer John Legend as friends, and a while back, when she saw the superstar U.S. senator Kamala Harris across the room at an Emily’s List event and went over to introduce herself, Foxx had barely gotten a word out before Harris interrupted and said, “You’re Kim Foxx! I’ve been watching you.”

Now isn’t that something? The coup de gras

Senate passes anti-lynching bill in renewed effort to make it a federal hate crime

Washington (CNN)Two competitors for the 2020 Democratic nomination joined forces Thursday in a renewed effort to pass their anti-lynching legislation.

The Senate passed the legislation from California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker and South Carolina GOP Sen. Tim Scott last year, but the House never took up the measure. On Thursday, the Senate again passed the bill via unanimous consent.
If signed into law, the Justice for Victims of Lynching Act would outline the specific killing of lynching, noting its violent and racist legacy, and add it to the federal list of hate crimes. As Booker’s office noted Thursday, the vote followed more than a century of efforts to outlaw lynching that have failed to pass.
Following Thursday’s unanimous vote in the Senate, the bill would then go to the House before President Donald Trump can sign it into law.
,,,Booker said they had been working on the bill “quite a bit,” and when asked if he felt dynamics had changed in the Senate with himself and other Democrats running against each other, Booker said his colleagues were “sisters and brothers.”
Conspiracy theories are just that. A theory. I have serious reservations that Harris was complicit in the plan. But she does know Jussie Smollett. He knew she wanted/needed a racially charged bill to pass congress to give a lift to her campaign. What better to rile the troops as she charges forth with her campaign?
