President Donald Trump has joined the collective outrage over an Illinois prosecutor's decision to drop all charges against actor Jussie Smollett.
Trump said in a tweet early this morning that he's having the FBI and Department of Justice look into the prosecutor's decision which he called "an embarrassment to our Nation." The Cook County State's Attorney's Office dropped a bombshell on Tuesday when it suddenly announced that all 16 felony counts for filing a false police report had been dropped.
It's not even clear whether federal authorities even have any jurisdiction over the case, according to USA Today.
- Much like Smollett, his lawyer Tina Glandian is maintaining his innocence and says he’s weighing his options as far as taking legal action against the city of Chicago.
