Jussie Smollett is no longer being treated as a victim in the alleged “hate crime attack.” It sounds like he orchestrated the entire thing himself, which is pathetic and gross.
With all of these new developments, you’d THINK police would be interviewing him today. But nope. It’s not happening.
“There are no plans for Jussie Smollett to meet with Chicago police today,” a spokesperson for Smollett’s attorneys, Victor Henderson and Todd Pugh, stated in an email. “Smollett’s attorneys will keep an active dialogue going with Chicago police on his behalf. We have no further comment today.”
Of course they have no further comment. Of course.
There’s simply no way Smollett can twist this back to make himself look like a legitimate victim. He’s not. He’s a victim of TDS, and that’s about it.
Still, authorities are trying to schedule an interview.
Police said they are still working with Smollett’s attorneys to schedule a time for that follow-up interview.
Chicago police have said they want to speak to Smollett again, because of “new evidence” learned from interrogating two men once considered potential suspects in the case. Police said Smollett is not considered a suspect, detectives just want to interview him to corroborate the new information they received from the two men who were released.
This is the latest from the police:
They need to interview him again, and they need to interview him NOW.
