- Kristen Clarke, the nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division, fell for the false claims made by actor Jussie Smollett that he was the victim of an anti-black and anti-gay hate crime in 2019.
- Clarke also accused the Chicago police department of “demonizing survivors” after investigators requested access to Smollett’s cell phone.
- “Jussie Smollett was subjected to a racist and homophobic attack,” Clarke wrote on Twitter.
- Smollett was later charged with multiple felonies for making the false hate crime report.
Chicago’s own fix-is-in classic. Biden, or whoever’s deciding for him, wants to put her in charge of, what? Civil rights? Say it isn’t so, Joe.
