Yesterday we posted news on the arrest of two Nigerian men in Chicago implicated in the reported hate crime against Empire star Jussie Smollett. Neither man was charged but CNN reports that both were paid by Smollett to perpetrate the haox.
Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault.
The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of “new evidence.” The sources told CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.
This is CNN so we can’t be certain the report is accurate. But given the circumstances, not the least of which is Smollett deleting numbers from his call history before giving it to police (which probably lead them to the co-conspirators of the hoax), I think we can call this a rare case of honest reporting.
Jussie Smollett is guilty of fraud. Lying to police. And as I noted yesterday, redirecting their resources to investigate his fake hate crime.
Smollett is so wrapped up in his own Derangement he can’t see that he has become the very thing he thinks he is fighting.
.@AOC is only speaking facts. This is so far beyond political party affiliation. Across the world…no matter the border…from sea to shining sea…45 and all his white hooded cohorts are a national disgrace. And if you support them…so are you. Clowns. pic.twitter.com/Qz4uIjF7xa

Facts? Like the ones, you invented to perpetuate your personal bias?
