Jussie Smollett Surprised To Find Out The Feds Are Still Investigating Him!!
Jussie Smollett came out in front of cameras and again, declared his innocence, as he seems to have assumed that his charges being dropped in Illinois meant that it was all over. I am assuming, that his lawyers failed to explain to him that it would not stop the FBI investigation that has been ongoing, even before the CPD started to recognize that he might have been perpetrating a hoax.
His actions have been odd. After acting like the prosecutor dropping the charges was a clear declaration of his innocence, causing the prosecutor to state on the record that it was not the case, his lawyers then put out the word that he might be bringing a lawsuit against the CPD.
Jussie Smollett attorney Tina Glandian told anchor George Stephanopoulos that the Empire star is mulling a lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department.
This was insane, as any first year law student knows that it would open up the whole can of worms again in discovery.
Then, today, he is discussing going after the brothers that conspired with him to perpetrate the whole hoax. This would do the same, bringing out all the evidence that the judge has tried to hide!
Why are his lawyers not telling him to ‘shut up!’
Jussie Smollett is his own worst enemy at this point. He is so desperate to continue his lie that he was a victim, and innocent, that he is creating more problems than he can handle.
He acts like he has no clue that the Federal investigation is ongoing, and could reasonably put him in prison for 5 to 10 years!
Smollett still faces an FBI investigation for mail fraud. Fox News reported on air Tuesday that the FBI is still looking into Jussie Smollett allegedly sending himself a death threat letter through the mail.
This aligns with reporting from ABC7 Chicago, which confirms that Smollett is still being investigated by the FBI.
The local and federal law enforcement is much like siblings. They may fight all the time between each other, but at the same time, they are very protective of each other from others.
There is no doubt, a growing mentality in the FBI, that they will ‘protect’ the CPD by throwing the book at Smollett. The more he rails against the CPD, the worse he makes this.
What Smollett did was abhorrent, and the charges that Illinois brought against him were serious. But it is a much more serious offence to use the USPS to send white powder and death threats.
I really am astounded that Jussie Smollett wants to continue to down this crazy road. His declaration of innocence did nothing but make him look clueless.
Even Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is making it clear that the world knows that Jussie is still lying!
“This is a whitewash of justice. A grand jury could not have been clearer — to the cost, $10,000 doesn’t come close financially, but all the other repercussions of this decision made to me, where is the accountability in the system?”
Rahm continued, “Mr. Smollett is still saying that he is innocent, still running down the Chicago police department. How dare him? How dare him? After everybody saw––and I want to remind you, this is not the superintendent’s word against his. The grand jury, a sliver of the evidence, and they came to a conclusion as did the state attorney’s office. This is not the superintendent and the detectives’ department word against his. And even after this whitewash, there is still no sense of ownership of what he’s done. He says that, in fact, he is the wronged in this case.”
How far does this go? Ether Jussie is really very clueless, and doesn’t know how justice works, or he is a sociopath!
I wish I could have seen the look on his face when he discovered that dropped charges in Illinois, had absolutely nothing to do with the charges coming at the federal level!
