Appearing Thursday evening on the Fox News Channel, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Yoo told host Laura Ingraham that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx could serve up to 20 years in prison if convicted of corruption for her handling of the Jussie Smollett case.

Kim Foxx is under fire after all charges were dropped against the Empire star in connection to allegedly staging a hate crime against himself to boost his career.

This week, Foxx’s office backpedaled on claims that the top prosecutor formally rescued herself from the case after Tina Tchen, the former chief of staff of former first lady Michelle Obama, pressured her to have the Smollett investigation transferred from the Chicago Police Department to the FBI.

A partial transcript is as follows:

INGRAHAM: What do you think about this? I mean, Rahm Emanuel, suddenly, has like put the brakes, Oh no, President Trump, go to baseball. Cutie.

YOO: First of all, I think a lot of Americans, myself included, are outraged by this, the fact that this fakes a hate crime. Look, I’m a minority, you’re a woman, what if were to be attacked legitimately, and now we’re going to be less believed by police and prosecutors because of the example of this guy. I think that’s terrible. I think a lot Americans realize something ought to be done. Second, this is why we have a U.S. Justice Department. Okay, so maybe they just spent a lot of time investigating President Trump to no good effect.

But, now they actually exist to make sure there is no corruption going on in state government. If you look at the details of this case where Mrs. Obama’s chief of staff calls the prosecutor, Kim Foxx, and all of the sudden these machinations occur and then the case gets dropped. That is exactly what the Justice Department is supposed to be involved in — to make sure there is no corruption in state government. So, I hope that President Trump is right and that the FBI is starting an investigation to look into this.

INGRAHAM: What’s the potential criminal exposure here, both for Foxx and the state’s attorney office itself?

YOO: So, Foxx could be potentially liable for what’s called mail wire fraud of depriving citizens of their honest services, which if she is convicted, right? This is the standard law that is used to go after corrupt state officials. Suppose she got a bribe, suppose she was promised a fundraiser or who knows what kind of other influence to drop this case, the maximum sentence is 20 years in prison.

    I don’t get it in America if they have the evidence to prosecute and get a conviction they drop the case as if it never happened you have a president who was investigated for two years because of a fake dossier paid for by the opposition party and Hillary Clinton a special council who was stacked with people who hated the president and support the opposition party they found no crime had been committed by the president but the democrat socialist communist party is still trying to find a crime after two years and someone who uses a hate crime on himself and wasted more taxpayers money only to find out he is the actual racist and the former anti American president’s wife gets her chief of staff to arrange for charges to be dropped and all the actual crimes were committed by democrats and their supporters unbelievable

      Yes Peter you are exactly right, we sit here and watch this shit happen all the time and it’s really getting sickening. This is why we voted for Trump, he’s NOT a politician, we’re sick of the corrupt ass politicians here.

      Peter more proof that the Obama administration was the most corrupt ever in our countries history. Now Obummer and his Amazon mate are still going around the whole world slandering the current administration. They are as corrupt as the Clinton’s. Look at the wealth they have amassed since the White House. I believe we should retroactively impeach Obama if that is possible?? As for Smollett what a disgrace. Foxx should be disbarred and Smollett should be killed off on Empire. I personally followed the show weekly but will no longer watch unless they remove him. We can not stand by and except this phony legal maneuver from that corrupt AG in Chicago. Hollywood in spite of being so radical and anti conservative they should reject Smollett and never allow him to appear in any show or Movie. He needs to be punished for this ruse. I will never watch anything that faker is on. Boycott Empire..

    A Soros puppet, of course.
    Let’s see if anything actually happens to her…or Smollett with possible federal charges.

    This happened in the State of Illinois and especially in the City of Chicago. Because of this the case against her is going nowhere. Worst thing that may happen to her is a very small slap on the wrist. The corruption here is the norm. This case dropping had to be approved by someone high up. She will be paid handsomely for her part. Democrats are Teflon, nothing ever sticks. This is daily life in Illinois. This is one of many reasons citizens are leaving the state in record numbers.

    ERRR ….NO …it was a successful attempt to get Kamala Harris/Cory Booger’s anti lynching bill passed (which it did in record time from 01/19/2019 to passage on 02/14/2019…just about 26 days….HOW ABOUT THAT…was Obozo and ILK afraid of being “lynched ” if found guilty or TREASON?

    That would be something else if Fox went to prison for Jussie, & the two Nigerian brothers were prosecuted for something regarding “attacking” Jussie. I wonder how loved Jussie would be if everyone around him took a hit so he could demand an “apology.”

    That all said, Jussie was let off very quickly. The FBI to investigate all this could be to placate those of us who are upset: By the time Foxx is let off, we’ll all just shake our heads & say “see!”

    Moochelle’s former chief of staff trying to get the case moved to the FBI is all you need to know. The JUST US department is still being manipulated by the left, and they are doing everything they possibly can to try and take down Trump. WHY? So obvious. Trump is coming nearer and nearer to taking THEM down. They are in panic mode. Even those of you who have believed in the Clinton’s and Obama’s should be at least wanting the truth. YOU TOO live here, and if they are as guilty as clearly indicated……YOU TOO will be all the better for this group to be brought to justice.

    Everyone keeps saying “lets see what happens”. Im frankly tired of the same old thumb twiddling while waiting for Trump to fix things for us. Write to your State Reps, not just once, send the same letter over and over. After all the politicians use boiler plate letters/replys on us. Show your distain for their lack of professionalism, their egregious lies and search for power and fame.

    Will anything ever come of this? Will there be and actual prob into her conduct? Was she paid via the Obama’s? I think it will all be swept under the rug never to be heard about again until the next Jussie Smollett fiasco that he tries to pull off.

    Lock her up for the full 20 years. Her actions will go down in the history of Chicago as the Greatest Miscarriage Of Justice. Corruption is nothing new to Chicago but this so in the face of the American People. The involvement from the Obama’s must be exposed as well.
