There’s nobody in America right now that’s as irredeemable as former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.
Smollett claimed back in January that he was jumped by a couple of President Trump’s supporters but when it turned out it wasn’t true, he was charged with sixteen felonies.
And although those charges were suddenly dropped under suspicious circumstances, Smollet’s worst nightmare just came true.
Jussie Smollett caused irreparable harm on a national level when he tried to demonize President Trump’s supporters as violent – and with two side orders of racist and homophobic – considering he’s both black and homosexual.
He claimed a couple of Trump supporters jumped him in Downtown Chicago and screamed slurs and “MAGA” at him. Hollywood jumped at the opportunity to align with demonizing President Trump’s supporters as being inherently violent and evil.
But it didn’t take the Chicago Police Department very long to expose all the facts like, for instance, Smollett allegedly paid two Nigerian brothers who worked on his show, “Empire” by check to stage the attack.
Smollett was charged with 16 felonies and was bonded out for $10,000 while he awaited trial.
As of Thursday afternoon, it’s out in the open for everyone to see.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News Smollett’s criminal case file includes more than 460 pages of case reports, arrest and supplementary files.
Guglielmi said, “The final release will be pertinent video files that require a heavy amount of digital redaction for things like license plates of unrelated vehicles and the blurring of faces of individuals not involved in the criminal investigation. We hope to have that completed by the week after next.”
After the charges were dropped, the court approved a request by his lawyer to seal the case. Several news organizations, including The Associated Press and The New York Times, asked the judge to reverse the decision, arguing there was a need for more transparency as to why prosecutors suddenly decided to abandon charges. Smollett’s lawyers had argued that since the case was dropped, Smollett had “the right to be left alone.”
But Judge Watkins begged to differ.
Watkins noted Smollett “voluntarily appeared on national television for an interview speaking about the incident in detail. After the March 26 dismissal, he voluntarily stood in front of cameras from numerous news organizations in the courthouse lobby and spoke about the case. On several occasions, attorneys for defendant, presumably with his authorization, appeared on various media outlets speaking about the case. These are not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply to be let alone.”
Thankfully he had that verdict because this case should be all about transparency. What he did to this country was unforgiveable and played on the sympathy of others with his bold-faced lies.
This is the reason why State’s Attorney Kim Foxx decision to drop the charges not only infuriated the Chicago Police Department, a former judge and former Mayor Rahm Emanuel but also an anonymous assistant attorney inside Foxx’s own office who wrote a scathing letter about it.
In the coming weeks, more information will come to light.
