Prosecutor won't comment until review of Smollett case done

The Cook County states attorney says she wont comment further on the Jussie Smollett case in Chicago until a county inspector general finishes his review of prosecutors decision to drop charges against the Empire actor.

Kim Foxx said in a written statement Friday that she doesnt want any comments by her to interfere with the inspector generals work compiling reliable and accurate records on the matter.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others by Foxxs office last month accusing Smollett of staging a racist, anti-gay attack against himself in January.

Foxx has publicly defended the dismissal of charges. But she said Friday she would engage in a candid conversation about the case only after the inspector general submits his findings.

Foxx requested the review.
