This is a major OFFICIAL change in posture for Chicago PD investigators:

""A Chicago police spokesperson on Saturday said "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett is no longer considered a victim in the case that allegedly involved an attack by two masked men who shouted racial and anti-gay slurs at the actor and, "This is MAGA country!""

I wonder, will Robin Roberts have a special segment on Good Morning America apologizing to her viewers for spreading this hoax narrative, and anti-Trump rhetoric?



Naaaah....She will keep her fat trap shut I am sure.

Let's not forget this gem from Nancy Pelosi:

The racist, homophobic attack on
@JussieSmollett
is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once & for all.

She Used her Official Speaker of House Twitter for this


I just wish the left would get away from the whole homophobic/racist narrative that the leaders of their party has been pushing for the last two years. It's getting old...

The schadenfreude real.

What a maroon.

And that statement from his attorney is sending my sides into orbit.


The statement is kind of clever. It probably won't work, but that's because the client is an idiot. It does the best possible job of weaving everything together trying to explain away what he needs to in order to create reasonable doubt.

"Hey, that explains how they recognized me and knew I was a gay actor . I always thought that was weird. They knew my routine, or maybe I mentioned when I was coming home. I don't remember. That's how they were able to plan this. I always thought it was a big coincidence just happening to run into some attackers who identified me.
And of course they found money exchanged hands between us-- I hired him as a personal trainer. You'll probably find a check/cash for a $3500 payment for legitimate services. We were in phone contact because he was my trainer, and we were working together, not to orchestrate a hoax. And I can't believe he attacked me and is now trying to implicate me to save himself. It's all very upsetting to me, the victim. You think you know a guy..."

Unless, of course, there is CCTV footage of them days before in the exact same area together. Which would corroborate the "dress rehearsal" aspect of the account.

Tik Tok Smollet...

This story is unconfirmed, and it is from TMZ, so take it for what it's worth. However, seeing as how they got fooled earlier on this story, I am hoping they did more solid investigation on this follow-up.



A grand jury will hear the Jussie Smollett case early next week ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Law enforcement sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ, the 2 brothers who were arrested and then released are staying somewhere around the Loop in downtown Chicago under the watchful eye of police so no one gets to them. We're told cops especially want to make sure Jussie does not contact the brothers.

With our leaders on both sides rushing to judgment immediately on every topic, lets here at ATS at least try and not add into the total nonsense when topics like this pop up, I know I'm bad about it sometimes. Dems definitely getting burned here rightfully so, LOL because of their tight affiliation with leftist extreme groups and they now look like azzhats, not to mention the media. After all one thing we should be able to all agree on the most important thing is the truth.

HERE ARE ALL THE POLITICIANS WHO RUSHED TO JUDGMENT ON THE SMOLLETT ‘HATE CRIME’

When Jussie Smollett claimed he was assaulted by two men wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, many Democratic politicians quickly came to his defense.

Those Democrats included Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, and Reps. Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, among others.

Waters blamed the attack on President Donald Trump and asked, “Why all of a sudden do we have people unable to study while black, unable to mow a lawn while black, unable to have picnic while black, and being attacked?”

Pelosi tweeted, “The racist, homophobic attack on [Smollett] is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love.”

Kamala Harris tweeted that the attack was a “modern-day lynching,” while her fellow senator and presidential candidate Cory Booker used the same term to describe the alleged attack.

Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that the attack was not “possibly” a racist and homophobic attack, but that “it was a racist and homophobic attack.”

Smollett, who is gay, claimed that his attacker shouted racist and homophobic slurs at him. However, additional details later added a cloud of doubt to Smollett’s story, including the fact that Smollett was later seen walking to his house in the early hours of the morning with a subway sandwich in his hand. (RELATED: Jussie Smollett On MAGA Hats: ‘I Never Said That!’)

On Thursday, reports emerged that the Chicago Police Department now believe that the incident was a hoax and that Smollett staged the attack to garner sympathy because his character was being written off the show “Empire,” a report which 20th Century Fox denied, calling the claims “patently ridiculous.”

Two Nigerian brothers were arrested in connection with the case, and on Saturday CNN reported that the brothers are “now cooperating fully with law enforcement.”

Chicago police now believe that Smollett paid the two brothers to stage the assault.

I think Smollett can kiss his character goodbye. They're probably planning how to kill him off now.
