Smollett’s spokesperson made it look like he is innocent or there is no evidence on him, well at least no counting the check, the brothers from Africa and more. The TRUTH is the FBI is working on it, It WILL become a federal case!
(also reports are that a CLOSE friend of Mrs Obama asked the Chicago DA to step aside and give it to the FBI, ALSO does anyone remember the Chief of Police laid out a step by step case against smollett)
However, Smollett was brought in for an emergency court session in which the judge ruled the case against him would be dropped.
Doubt was cast on the open-and-shut nature of the case when Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham wrote the Justice Department following reports that Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx asked Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to let the FBI investigate Smollett’s allegations that he was attacked by two masked men after the former chief of staff to former first lady Michelle Obama allegedly informed Foxx that Smollett’s family had concerns about the probe.
According to local reports, Johnson was blindsided by Tuesday’s events and is expected to address the situation later in the day.
Smollett attorneys Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes said in a statement that Smollett’s record “has been wiped clean.”
Anne Kavanaugh, the crisis manager the actor hired, said Smollet is a “victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgement.”
A rep for Fox, which produces and airs “Empire,” said the studio and network had no immediate comment.
A spokeswoman for Cook County prosecutors didn’t immediately respond to messages requesting comment.
