It’s not over for Jussie Smollett and the magical MAGA race ambush hoax. A judge ordered Google to hand over a treasure trove of data that may really sink Smollett’s case:
From Fox News:
An Illinois judge granted two sweeping search warrants ordering Google to turn over a year’s worth of data from Jussie Smollett and his manager as a special prosecutor probes whether or not the “Empire” actor staged a racist and homophobic attack against himself.
The warrants, filed last month in Cook County Circuit Court, will give investigators access to Smollett’s and his manager’s texts, emails, photos, location data, drafted and deleted messages, any files in their Google Drive cloud storage services, Google Voice texts, calls and contacts, as well as their search and web browsing history, dated between November 2018 and November 2019, according to reports by the Chicago Tribune.
Toomin signed the new search warrants for Google on Dec. 6, 2019, ordering the company’s “representatives, agents and employees” not to disclose his order to turn over the records, saying that to do so “may jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation.”
Investigators are hoping that the data, which encompasses large swaths of time before and after the attack, may shed light on whether the incident was premeditated, and whether Smollett and his manager had any correspondence with each other or anyone else, particularly after the charges against him were dropped, which would implicate them.
Yeah I think this dude is screwed. And not in the way he likes it.
Also don’t forget that there were accusations that a former Obama administration member was in close communication with Kim Foxx, the attorney general over the case. I would just love to know more about that…
