A trove of documents obtained Tuesday by NBC 5 from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office show that Kim Foxx was communicating with her staff about Jussie Smollett, even after she said she was recused from the case — and expressed concerns that Smollett, who she called “a washed up celeb who lied to cops,” was being over charged.
“Sooo…...I’m recused, but when people accuse us of overcharging cases...16 counts on a class 4 (felony) becomes exhibit A,” a text message from Foxx reads.
She then references singer R. Kelly, charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse, as a "Pedophile with 4 victims 10 counts. Washed up celeb who lied to cops, 16 (counts).”
Hundreds of people in the Mid-Atlantic and New England reported they looked up on Tuesday night and saw a meteor hurtling through the skies.

The special counsel's Trump-Russia report will be out on Thursday for all to see. But not all of it.
The Democrats' demands for a full, unredacted version of Robert Mueller's report are likely to prompt a political and legal battle that could last for months, if not much longer.
The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler, has said he is prepared to issue subpoenas "very quickly" for the full report on Russia and Donald Trump's presidential campaign if it is released with blacked-out sections. And that would set the legal fight in motion.
Newly obtained surveillance footage shows the confrontation among Miami police and two men accused of impersonating federal agents at Little Havana's Versailles restaurant earlier this year.
Police say Ismael Diaz, 51, and Alberto Nunez-Horta, 48, were arrested back in January and faced charges of impersonating a police officer, assault and battery on a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct.
The restaurant says for several days at various hours, the pair spoke with customers and portrayed themselves as agents with the FBI. As part of the alleged ruse, they brought a dog that looks like a police dog with them.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has agreed to pay $8 million to a teenager who was sexually abused by the athletic director at her Catholic high school, who continued to work despite prior allegations of misconduct, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
The award is the highest individual LA archdiocese settlement in a sex abuse case, the Los Angeles Times said.
Juan Ivan Barajas repeatedly abused the 15-year-old girl and eventually kidnapped her, according to court documents, taking her to Las Vegas in 2016 after his wife discovered evidence of the abuse on his cellphone. He was a health teacher and athletic director at San Gabriel Mission High School.

In the days following the Notre Dame Cathedral fire, you can expect to see all kinds of people and organizations popping up claiming to raise money to restore the historic building, according to the Better Business Bureau. While some are legitimate, there will be scams, and you should do your research before making any kind of donation.
“I think after an event like this, the whole world looks at this devastation and wants to help out any way they can,” said Luke Frey of the Better Business Bureau.
For many, a first inclination may be to donate money to help the mammoth rebuilding effort. But the BBB says beware — the days following disasters are ripe for scammers.

We may not know exactly how or why Stonehenge was built, but new research affords a glimpse of the people who erected England’s iconic stone monument some 5,000 years ago, NBC News reported.
The study, which examined the origins of farming in Britain, shows that the people living in the region at the time Stonehenge was built were descended from people who had migrated to the area about 6,000 years ago from present-day Turkey.
A paper describing the research — an analysis of DNA from the skeletal remains of farmers who lived in England from 6,000 to 4,500 years ago during the Neolithic period — doesn’t focus on Stonehenge or even mention it. But Selina Brace, an expert in ancient DNA with the Natural History Museum in London and the paper’s lead author, said it was possible to link the monument to the research — as some media outlets were quick to do.
She said the research findings indicate that Stonehenge was built not by the earliest Neolithic farmers to arrive in Britain, but “by their descendants, people from the same period, just later.”

The controversy over Rep. Ilhan Omar’s reference to the 9/11 terrorist attacks continued to boil on the political talk shows on Sunday.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders claimed that Omar had spoken “dismissively” about the 9/11 attacks, while Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler said her comments were being misconstrued.

San Francisco city leaders on Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution to charge a toll to drive on the city's famously crooked Lombard Street, according to the office of Supervisor Catherine Stefani.
Thousands of tourists could soon have to pay as much as $10 after the Board of Supervisors' 11-0 vote.
City and state officials on Monday announced a bill that would give San Francisco the authority to establish a toll and reservation system for the street that winds down a steep hill, in an effort to reduce crowds and traffic congestion.
The Trump administration wants to open two new tent facilities to temporarily detain up to 1,000 parents and children near the southern border, as advocates sharply criticize the conditions inside the tents already used to hold migrants.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a notice to potential contractors that it wants to house 500 people in each camp in El Paso, Texas, and in the South Texas city of Donna, which has a border crossing with Mexico.
Each facility would consist of one large tent that could be divided into sections by gender and between families and children traveling alone, according to the notice. Detainees would sleep on mats. There would also be laundry facilities, showers, and an "additional fenced-in area" for "outside exercise/recreation."
Red Cross volunteers distributed the first shipment of badly needed emergency supplies in Venezuela on Tuesday after months of feuding between the government, which has denied the existence of a humanitarian crisis, and opponents who have been seeking to use the delivery of aid to force President Nicolás Maduro from power.
In the working class neighborhood of Catia near downtown Caracas, government supporters fired a half dozen gunshots in the air as a van arrived to distribute water purification tablets and empty plastic jugs, creating a small commotion on a major avenue during rush hour.
"We're very happy," Sergio Guerra, a motorcycle taxi driver, said nonchalantly as the sound of the shots cracked overhead. "With these tablets we can defend ourselves a little better by drinking cleaner water."
From Ben Affleck and Susan Sarandon to Anna Wintour and Willie Nelson, celebrities lined up to give money — and a dash of star power — to their favorite Democratic presidential candidates ahead of this week's first quarter fundraising deadline.
For months, candidates in the crowded field of more than a dozen contenders have aggressively courted key figures in music, television, publishing and film, who are one of the party's most reliable sources of campaign cash. Although many donors remain on the sidelines, contributing to lackluster fundraising hauls, an early snapshot included in the campaign finance reports submitted to the Federal Election Commission this week offers a glimpse of who is drawing attention from entertainment industry in the early stages of the race.
"When you talk about Hollywood, yes, we are talking about movie stars and writers and directors, but we are also talking about people with decades of experience with presidential campaigns," said Yusef Robb, a longtime California political strategist.
