This just keeps getting more pathetic.

Motive Revealed In Smollett Case: Actor Concocted Hate Crime After Racist Letter Failed To Impress

The Nigerian bothers are talking. Apparently, Jussie first had them send that fake hate letter to the studio, and then when it didn't get the response he wanted, they staged the fake attack.

I've heard they were planning to drop his character from Empire. I bet this was all ultimately some kind of half-assed stunt to try to gain a huge swell of sympathy and save his part on the show. Ironically, Smollett's actions have probably doomed not just his character, but the show as well. (I'll be surprised if Empire doesn't get cancelled due to the bad publicity this generated.)

You're preaching to the choir, man, it makes zero sense to not go the grand jury route after finishing the investigation the other poster doesn't seem to understand is still ongoing.

ZERO SENSE...

If there were proper evidence then it would be a waste of time and tax payer money to convene a grand jury. They may not even have enough for a grand jury since they have now said they will not go to grand jury until they speak to jussie again.

So far we know for a fact the two men attacked jussie and it looks as though they may get away with it.

I guess we'll see who's correct in the coming days, if Smullet ends up going before a grand jury and gets indicted we'll just assume you've been talking out of your ass most of the thread.

Again you post info not having to do with my post at all. I have never said a grand jury would not indict him.

I do not get why you can not follow the thought i am putting forth.



If police feel they have a solid case then they would not convene a grand jury to decide the evidence.


The will only go to a grand jury in this case if the case is weak but feel as though jussie is guilty.

Even if they have a weak case a grand jury could indict him.

I am not at all trying to guess what a grand jury would do in this case cause i am not privy to all the evidence.

You should give up on the gotcha moments.

From the article which that zero hedge piece quotes:


Chicago police say the FBI is handling the investigation surrounding the letter, because that’s a federal-level concern.


Jussie Smollett Case: Clues Into Potential Motive Behind The Attack

Smollett may get out of the local false reporting claim, but he will have to do some serious dancing to get out of the potential federal charges having to do with the mailing of the letter.

And here is the ultimate irony...

With everything we've since learned about this incident, it would seem as though Smollett could be charged under the lynching bill his friend Kamala Harris has been trying to pass.

Lynching bill has nothing to do with actual lynching

Why would the police convene anything? That's not their job. Learn how our system functions.

Yea right.

You think jussie could be charged by a law that does not exist and will not exist. That says alot.

You seem to be forgetting the letter was likely mailed by the two nigerians since the magazine was reportedly found in their house.

I believe i read a post of yours stating that harris was in contact with jussie as per the planning of events. That is a new level of hyperbole you bring to the table.

You are getting petty now.

I never said the police would convene a grand jury. I said "they" would not convene a grand jury.

I guess that is all you are left with is to assert your opinion of pronouns. In this sentence i was referring they as being who ever convenes juries.

No i did not miss that members attempt to spread fake news. All the thread from that one are hyperbolic and blow much smoke.

The two brothers bought the rope as reported by every other news outlet.

After Smollett ran his original criminal defense attorney off because of an idiotic statement in which he claimed to be surprised that the attackers were people he knew, he had to hire a new defense attorney and it seems that they have him under wraps for the time being:


“There are no plans for Jussie Smollett to meet with Chicago police today,” Smollett spokeswoman Anne Kavanagh said in an emailed statement Monday. “Any news reports suggesting otherwise are inaccurate. Smollett's attorneys will keep an active dialogue going with Chicago police on his behalf. We have no further comment today.”

In response to Kavanagh’s statement, Anthony Guglielmi, the Police Department’s chief spokesman, reiterated the detectives’ desire to talk to Smollett about the case. Guglielmi said he hopes there’s a “mutually beneficial time” that can be worked out between the detectives and Smollett’s lawyers to make that happen.

The Sun-Times reported Sunday that Smollett may speak with detectives Monday, citing the actor’s new attorney, Todd Pugh.


'Empire' star Jussie Smollett not meeting with Chicago cops today, representative for actor says

From the CBS local source I linked in my previous post:


Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say the “Empire” actor paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25.

Hm


Jussie Smollett appeared in a reading of the Tony-winning play Take Me Out the day before his attack, about a biracial baseball player coming out as gay

In the play, the lead character is called a 'f****t' and 'n****r' by his teammates, slurs that Smollett later said were screamed by his alleged attackers

He went from the reading to the airport so he could return to Chicago to film the final episodes of the fourth season of Empire, but his flight was delayed

Sources tell DailyMail.com that investigators believe that Smollett then used Instagram to alert his alleged attackers as to his location via stories he posted

His last story that night was posted when he landed in Chicago, and soon after he went out in 10 degree weather to get a sandwich at 2am from Subway

A spokesperson said that police are 'not in a position to confirm, deny or comment on the validity of what's been unofficially released' at this time

So the two nigerians are not from nigeria but just claimed to be trump supporters born and raised in chicago per tv msm.

We now know that the two brothers attacked jussie with a rope and bleach and now they claim he paid them to do it.

[snip] Regardless, the investigation is obviously not over as there has been no formal announcement, as a matter of fact, it's become more involved with them asking to speak to Smullet again and the brothers being released without charges.
