Nobody, except for the Obama family, knew who Tina Tchen was a few days ago. Now, her name is everywhere in the news.
That’s because Tchen, former chief of staff to Michelle Obama, is being credited as the person who got hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett off the hook recently in Chicago.
All charges against the “Empire” actor were dropped once Tchen got involved in the case.
But now things just got even stranger, if you can believe it.
From The Daily Wire:
Tchen’s name is not only appearing in reports about helping steer the Smollett investigation. She is also getting news coverage as the person hired to investigate alleged racism and sexism within the Southern Poverty Law Center. Earlier this month, the center’s co-founder, Morris Dees, was fired. The president of the organization also recently resigned amid complaints from employees that women staffers were sexually harassed by Dees and that the organization’s white leadership did not adequately advance minority staffers.
In a statement announcing Dees’ firing, then-president Richard Cohen said the center had hired “an outside organization to conduct a comprehensive assessment of our internal climate and workplace practices, to ensure that our talented staff is working in the environment that they deserve – one in which all voices are heard and all staff members are respected.”
The person hired to lead this investigation was Tchen. The Chicago-based attorney and co-founder of the Times Up Legal Defense Fund (part of the MeToo movement), will be assessing the SPLC’s workplace culture. …
Very interesting, indeed.
COTR adds the following:
“Interesting” is one word for what’s going on here. It’s about the tamest word I could think of. I can think of many, many more.
We’ve recently heard a lot about Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, Tina Tchen, for basically being the person who got hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett’s charges magically dismissed after previously having 16 felonies to account for. …
But see… that’s not the only reason Tina Tchen is a hot topic right now. She’s involved in yet another scandalous case. …
I’d bet my firstborn that Jussie’s bewildering pass has a little something to do with Tchen’s “commitment to social justice.”
There’s no evidence that Michelle or anyone else in the Obama family was involved.
Still, it’s not too hard to connect the dots in this case.
And you know what? This isn’t the first time since leaving office that the Obama family was connected to a major scandal post-White House.
Heck, it isn’t even the first time this month.
The Obama family was also connected to the college admissions bribery case earlier in March.
As we reported at the time (only two weeks ago):
The growing college admissions bribery scheme that’s already taken down Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin is getting bigger by the day.
As more names continue to drop, we’ve discovered that one of those names has personal ties to the Obama family.
Gordon Ernst was among 50 people charged in the case. He worked personally with the Obama family as the tennis coach to Michelle Obama and the former first family’s two daughters, Sasha and Malia. …
Again, how interesting. And convenient.
