Ann Coulter did some digging in Michelle Obama’s closet and found a big skeleton. She then went on her various media properties and ruthlessly exposed it to the entire nation.
Look, something stinks to high heaven about this Jussie Smollet case and the decision to let him walk appears to have come from high up. But we know Mayor Emanuel was disgusted by it so it had to come from even higher up.
Who has that kind of juice in Chicago? Ann thinks Michelle Obama and her top aides. From Newsweek:
Coulter, in a series of tweets on Tuesday afternoon, attacked Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who earlier announced that Smollett was relieved of 16 counts of disorderly conduct for filing a fake police report about being a victim of an apparent hate crime that he said had a “Make America Great Again” element.
Then Coulter quote tweeted a Chicago Police Department post from the previous day about two men charged with murdering an off-duty police officer. The two men are Menelik Jackson, 24, and Jovan Battle, 32, who according to the police department’s tweet were arrested for the incident that ocurred on Saturday.
“Let’s just hope Kim Foxx doesn’t drop all charges,” Coulter commented, then brought in Obama.
“Do any former Michelle Obama aides know the perps’ families?” Coulter tweeted. “They could be in for a nice surprise!”
Coulter seemed to be bashing the former first lady’s aides in light of a report earlier this month that Foxx tried to persuade a Chicago police superintendent to turn Smollett’s case over to the FBI, after a Smollett supporter personally reached out to Foxx. The supporter was reportedly former chief of staff to Obama and Chicago attorney Tina Tchen, according to text messages and emails Foxx provided to the Chicago Sun-Times after a public records request.
The records reportedly showed that Tchen texted Foxx three days after Smollett claimed he was jumped by two masked men and told, “This is MAGA country, n*****.”
“I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation,” Tchen reportedly texted.
Tchen reportedly gave Foxx’s phone number to a relative of Smollett and talks ensued. Foxx told Chicago Sun-Times that Smollett’s relative was concerned about information in the investigation being leaked.
In her tweets, Coulter implied that race contributed to Smollett’s dropped charges.
“Apparently, it’s white privilege to have a fair legal system. Tina Tchen (Asian female) asked Smollett prosecutor Kim Foxx (black female) to go easy on Jussie Smollett (black male),” Coulter tweeted. “And she did.”

From The Chicago Sun-Times: Just days after Jussie Smollett told Chicago police he had fought off a pair of attackers who targeted him in an apparent hate crime, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx tried to persuade Police Supt. Eddie Johnson to turn the investigation over to the FBI.
Foxx’s call to Johnson came after an influential supporter of the “Empire” actor reached out to Foxx personally: Tina Tchen, a Chicago attorney and former chief of staff for former First Lady Michelle Obama, according to emails and text messages provided by Foxx to the Chicago Sun-Times in response to a public records request.
Tchen passed Foxx’s number to a relative of the actor, and the ensuing conversations with the family member were cited by Foxx last month as the reason she recused herself from Smollett’s prosecution as the actor faces disorderly conduct charges for allegedly making a false police report.
Text messages show Tchen contacted Foxx on Feb. 1, three days after Smollett said he was jumped by two men as he walked home from a sandwich shop near his Streeterville home. Tchen texted Foxx to set up an early morning phone call.
“I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation,” Tchen wrote in a text sent before 5 a.m., seeking to set up a call with Foxx before Tchen left on an 8 a.m. flight to New York.
A few hours later, Foxx received a text from a relative of Smollett, who said she’d received the number from Tchen.
In an interview with the Sun-Times this week, Foxx said that the family member expressed concerns about leaked information about the investigation — information that media outlets attributed to “police sources.”
“They had no doubt about the quality of the investigation, but believed that the FBI would have a tighter lid on the information,” said Foxx, adding that Johnson initially seemed receptive to the idea of turning the case over to the FBI.
Foxx said she has made similar calls to Johnson in cases involving lower-profile victims.
