The actor’s attorneys argued that he could be in danger of physical harm if he remained in Cook County Jail.

I was on the Broken Potholes podcast talking about the Supreme Court, abortion, Jussie Smollett, the media, and sundry other topics.
Foxx tried to drop all charges against Smollett after he was indicted by a grand jury.
The Jussie Smollett trial is only the latest instance in which jurors have done their duty diligently, without regard to race or politics.
Psaki noted that then-president Trump also expressed sympathy for Smollett in the wake of the hoax attack.
