Video Of Michelle Obama And Jussie Smollett Surfaces That Has People Asking Tons Of Questions

Kirsters Baish [Opinion]| News broke this week that charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett were dropped, which left a lot of Americans wondering about his connections.

According to, “Tina Tchen, a former top aide to both Barack and Michelle Obama, who called State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx who then connected a Smollett family member to Foxx. The exchange of texts revealed an effort to have the case taken away from the Chicago PD and transferred to the FBI.”

Tchen has spoken out.

Via the Chicago Sun Times:

“I know members of the Smollett family based on prior work together,” Tchen said in a statement released Wednesday. “Shortly after Mr. Smollett reported he was attacked, as a family friend, I contacted Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who I also know from prior work together. My sole activity was to put the chief prosecutor in the case in touch with an alleged victim’s family who had concerns about how the investigation was being characterized in public.”

Last month, the Sun-Times reported that Tchen passed Foxx’s number to a relative of the actor. Foxx has acknowledged that she tried to persuade Police Supt. Eddie Johnson to turn the investigation over to the FBI after the family member expressed concerns regarding leaked information about the investigation — information that media outlets attributed to “police sources.”

There are other clear connections.

During Obama’s time in the White House, Jussie Smollett posted about visiting them.

“Time’s Up is the legal defense fund for sexual assault victims created in part by Tina Tchen that raised over $21 million dollars including from Hollywood stars in its first 100 days,” reports

The relative of Smollett from the text messages has not yet been named.

From The Sun:

Tchen and Smollett’s sister Jurnee Smollett-Bell were pictured together at an event at Austin’s South by Southwest.

And they were photographed with the United State of Women Summit in Los Angeles early last year.

Both of Smollett’s sisters also worked for the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012.

According to reports, Smollett-Bell also visited Tchen in the White House.
