It is becoming apparent that former first lady Michelle Obama, possibly in step with husband Barack, placed her considerable political and social weight on the scales of justice and intimidated an already corrupt system to free a criminal from justice (“State’s Attorney Kim Foxx says Jussie Smollett treated same as anyone else,” Web, March 27). Actor Jussie Smollett’s story involved major finger pointing at not only President Trump’s supporters, but of course (the main target of this vile fabrication) Mr. Trump himself.

Mrs. Obama wanted desperately to give the ignorant mobs of Trump haters more fuel to vent against all Trump supporters and to incite violence and discord. Their main motivation: They couldn’t stand to see an African-American role model — and a gay one at that — be brought to justice for wrongdoing, thus bringing redemption and satisfaction to the president and his supporters. This reminds me of when a bunch of lowlifes dragged a poor man out of his car during the last presidential campaign and beat and kicked him nearly to death, shouting, “He voted Trump!”

Mrs. Obama and her flunky aide should be investigated by the FBI or Justice Department for obstruction of justice violations.
