* Press release…
John R. Lausch, Jr., United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, today joined Attorney General William P. Barr and President Donald J. Trump to announce the expansion of Operation Legend to Chicago.

Feds are on the way!

Federal Deployment is Imminent

Trump may deploy federal agents to Chicago this week: Portland-style response an option?
If Trump sends a Portland-style military action to Chicago, it would represent a dramatic escalation between Trump and Mayor Lightfoot.

Soon, we will he seeing his smiling face on TV every night. Then there will be the book and then the movie, starring himself. I hope he learned to avoid the media. First stop tomorrow is Disney World.

Take them all down

Those federal indictments of Illinois politicians? Coming any day now. Maybe.
We still anticipate plenty of action on the political corruption front coming out of 219 S. Dearborn. But we’ve lowered our expectations about the timing.

Everyone’s waiting for U.S. Attorney John Lausch to announce the next corruption indictments of Chicago and Illinois politicians. AP

The truth is we were expecting more indictments by now from the big federal investigations that have gripped Illinois politics for more than a year.

Sorry if we got your hopes up.

That’s not to suggest those indictments aren’t still coming.

They called him “the Clown.” But on the day a judge sent Joseph Lombardo to prison for the rest of his life, a prosecutor said the notorious Chicago Outfit killer had “a certain callousness.”

After many missteps, it's time for the CFD to take over the Kim Foxx investigation. It won't take them long. They can work on it on their off days and then present their findings to the new special prosecutor.

Chicago Tribune Editorial

the justice system is counting on him to determine who did what
What began as an accusation that Jussie Smollett faked a vicious hate crime has evolved into something more: widespread local and national suspicion that someone, or several someones, improperly influenced how the office of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx prosecuted, then dropped, the criminal case against the actor.
