It seemed like it was over and done with just two short months ago after disgraced former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was awarded just a slap on the wrist when Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx mysteriously dropped all sixteen of his felony charges.
He was only required to fork over his $10,000 bond and do some community service. It shocked everybody. Justice was not served that day.
But things just rapidly changed. And Jussie Smollett was finally caught red-handed after this new video was just released to the public.
It all began during the early morning of January 29th when former actor Jussie Smollett claimed he was jumped in Downtown Chicago by two attackers wearing red President Trump “MAGA” hats and screamed, “This is MAGA country!” as they fled the scene of the crime.
Between then and February 15th, Hollywood celebrities and liberals everywhere flock to the actor’s side but then the police investigation takes a sharp turn and rumors begin floating that he staged the attack.
February 20 and 21, the Chicago Police Department formerly charge Smollett and then explain them.
On March 7, a Grand Jury returns 16 felony indictments against Smollett.
And then prosecutor Kim Foxx shockingly drops all charges against him.
Things take another sharp turn once discrepancies inside the State Attorney’s office become complicated over the case and Judge Steven G. Watkins ordered his files to be unsealed stating the “court cannot credit his privacy interest as good cause to keep the case records sealed.”
It took some time but one of the videos was just released, a police officer’s body camera entering Smollett’s apartment where Smollett stood in the kitchen with nooses still hanging around his neck.

In the video, the police officer asks him if he wants to remove the nooses from around his neck and Smollett responds he wanted them to see it.
What kind of person would keep nooses around his neck until the police arrived? If you were attacked in the streets wouldn’t the first thing you do after you collected yourself, decide to walk back to your apartment to call the police, is take off the nooses first?
The Chicago Police Department discovered several things during their investigation that pointed to Smollett like the $3,500 check the Nigerian brothers received from him to carry out the alleged attack.
But the biggest piece of evidence is how the Nigerian brothers were caught on surveillance video at a store buying red hats, ski masks and – drum roll – rope.
Here’s the video.
Of course, the Chicago Police Department had this information, which probably led them to be suspicious of the circumstances but the way in which Smollett wanted police to see the ropes around his neck is what sends off a huge red flag.
There will be more videos released soon.
