CPD Sources Confirm Nigerians Purchased Jussie’s “Rope” – CPD Now Want To Question Jussie Smollet

When Will the News Media and Liberal Establishment Admit They Got Duped by Jussie Smollett?

…But what are we to make of the police releasing them without charges? Well, the authorities citing “new evidence” and “more investigation” to be completed, along with Smollett suddenly lawyering up in a big way, makes it about as obvious as could be that the brothers have “flipped” on Smollett, and that they are not currently being charged because they are no longer law enforcement’s primary target.

Update: Saturday Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says new information had shifted the trajectory of Jussie Smollett investigation

While police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Saturday that he could not speak on what the new information was, he said that the break from detectives has “shifted the trajectory” of the investigation. Though he did not say whether Smollett spoke to the men that night — one of them had previously appeared on “Empire” — he said it will also be central to the investigation whether they spoke to or saw Smollett.

Update: Chicago police want to question ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett after questioning and releasing 2 brothers

Chicago police said Saturday they have reached out to the attorney for “Empire” star Jussie Smollett because they still want to speak to Smollett after releasing two brothers they had been questioning about a reported attack against the actor.

Twelve hours after calling them “possible suspects,” police late Friday released the brothers without filing any charges, citing “new evidence” they did not disclose.

This is Bad! Jussie Has Lost CNN Too!Police sources: New evidence suggests Jussie Smollett orchestrated attack

Chicago (CNN)Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault.

The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of “new evidence.” The sources told CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

Chicago police question actor Jussie Smollett and 2 ‘persons of interest’

Detectives investigating the reported attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett have been questioning two people of interest seen in the area at the time, including a man who has an acting role on the show, according to law enforcement sources.

The developments come as Smollett gave his first TV interview about the incident and tried to end doubt that he was attacked in Streeterville more than two weeks ago by two men who shouted slurs at him, hit him and wrapped a rope around his neck while yelling, “This is MAGA country!”

Upadte #2: Chicago Police Reportedly Have Solved the Jussie Smollett ‘Hate Crime’ Hoax

When this story broke, there were a lot of reasons to be suspicious, as I detailed at the time (“You Haters! Stop Questioning Gay Actor’s Claim of ‘MAGA’ Hate Crime in Chicago,” Jan. 31, and “Persons of Interest,” Feb. 1). Now it is being reported that Chicago police are questioning two black men, one of whom appeared as an extra on Empire with Jussie Smollett, and once they get full confessions, we can expect the rest of the story behind this obvious hoax to emerge.

Updates – Police investigating whether Jussie Smollett staged attack with help of others, allegedly being written off ‘Empire’

CHICAGO — Chicago police confirmed Thursday that detectives are talking to two persons of interest in connection with the alleged attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News that police are investigating whether Smollett and the two men staged the attack allegedly because Smollett was being written off of “Empire.”

A source familiar with the investigation told the ABC7 I-Team that Smollett failed to appear for an interview with detectives earlier Thursday.

Looks like Smollet deleted the calls to his accomplices when he handed over his self-redacted phone records which immediately aroused police suspicion.

Chicago Police hint Jussie Smollett’s story a hoax

TMZ reported an interesting clue into the police thinking on Tuesday.  The Chicago P.D. has confirmed that it has video of Jussie Smollett with the rope, tied in a Windsor knot, around his neck in the lobby of the building that he eventually called police from.  Yet when a reporter asked if police also had video of Smollett with the rope around his neck outside that building, police said they could not confirm that, as it would “interfere with the investigation.”

Jussie Smollett cries as he gives his first interview about homophobic, racist attack that didn’t happen

Jussie Smollett has given his first interview about the shocking racist and homophobic attack he was subjected to as he walked home from a Subway in Chicago last month at 2am.

The Empire actor spoke to ABC’s Robin Roberts for an interview that will air on Good Morning America on Thursday morning.

5 Reasons Why The Jussie Smollett ‘Hate Crime’ Story Is Probably A Hoax

It is still technically possible that “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett really was the victim of a hate crime. We cannot at this point conclusively prove the negative, and maybe we never will. But we can use our faculties of reason and common sense and, based on the available evidence, arrive at the most plausible conclusion: it’s a hoax, and a pretty absurd one at that.

Jussie Smollett’s neighbors cast doubt on his attack story

Persons of interest in the Jussie Smollet Hate Crime Of The Century

“I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here … Half the people are gay and the other half are black.”

A patron at Lizzie McNeill’s Irish Pub, about a block from the scene of the alleged Jan. 29 incident, said Smollett’s story “doesn’t really make sense.”

“It’s a lie, because Chicago is the most liberal city around,” said the man, who wouldn’t give his name. “They have cameras everywhere … Why can’t they find the attack?”

Behind the Scenes, It’s Clear Chicago Media and Police Doubt Jussie Smollett’s Story

I can’t recall a large crime story where there was a bigger gap between what the police and media are saying publicly, and what they expressing behind the scenes, than the saga involving the recent alleged hate crime against actor Jussie Smollett. Similarly, there may not be a story where you can tell more by what has not happened, in comparison to what actually has occurred.

I call HOAX – Edmonton mosque gets threatening letter promoting white supremacy

EDMONTON–An Edmonton mosque is calling on Albertans to condemn Islamophobia after receiving a threatening letter demonstrating a “flagrant display of white supremacy.”

The Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council (AMPAC) posted a letter on Facebook and Twitter Wednesday morning that was delivered to Markaz Ul Islam in southeast Edmonton, addressed on behalf of “real Albertans” and saying “you and your religion don’t belong here in Alberta.”

Right, a UCP supporter is going to send a threatening letter to a Mosque, purposely mentioning Jason Kenney and the UCP Party, not to mention prominently displaying the party’s Logo with an election on the horizon certain to turf the hated NDP out of office, sure if you say so. Nope, no sign of leftist desperation here.

Smollett case update: “Threat letter” mailed from SW suburbs; “persons of interest” pix released to appease “downtown”; more

Here’s an update on the Jussie Smollett case in which the star of Fox television’s Empire claimed that he was beaten in Streeterville early last Tuesday by two people who put a noose around his neck, poured a chemical on him, and lobbed anti-gay, anti-black slurs while shouting that Smollett was in “MAGA country,” a reference to Donald Trump’s 2016 “Make America Great Again” slogan.

The Curious Case of Jussie Smollett

Vague “details”, lack of cooperation, no video and a passionate hatred of President Trump.

The case of the openly gay television actor who has alleged that he was beaten up by racist homophobic Trump fans late Monday/early Tuesday at 2 a.m. grows more curious by the hour. Three days later, it’s not clear that an attack took place. And Jussie Smollett’s behavior has been odd.

“Odd” isn’t the word I’d use.
