Update: President Trump says FBI, DOJ to investigate Jussie Smollett case



Update: President Trump this morning made a statement on Twitter that the FBI & DOJ would be reviewing the “outrageous” Jussie Smollett case. He also called it an “embarrassment to our Nation!”

The Chicago Police Department has released its investigation report into Jussie Smollett and it shows police were quick to discover that his story of being attacked by racists in late January was a hoax.

According to CBS Chicago, Smollett discussed and planned the attack with the Osundairo brothers days before.

In the report, Smollett even picks the brothers up and drives them to the location on two different occasions four days before the staged attack happens.

Investigators also asks the brothers how much they are paid for personal training. The brothers say anywhere between $20-$50 an hour.

Smollett paid the two $3,500 in the form of a check. He wrote in the memo section that it was for training.

At $50 an hour that would be good for 70 hours of training, something that set off red flags for investigators.

The report also indicates that the brothers used a $100 bill given to them back Smollett to buy the masks, rope, and hats so they could hid their identity.

The brothers say they did not keep the receipts and threw the items out after the fake attack was carried out.

Chicago police also obtained a search warrant for Smollett’s iCloud database and shared the information with the FBI after the Empire actor refused to hand over his iPhone during the initial questioning.

  1. So obvious he is lying and that he is getting off due to someone in HIGH places. I can only hope he has no career after all of this. He deserves to pay something for what he has done.
