Prosecutors Probe Into Smollet’s Dropped Charges
According to reports, by Fox News, that despite a Chicago prosecutor dropping all charges against Jussie Smollett, a Cook County state’s Attorney Kim Foxx says she wants to look into the investigation further.
Smollett is also being charged with almost $130,000 to cover the cost of the investigation that appeared to be fraudulent due by Tuesday and if not paid on time he is looking to be fined twice the amount of what he is being charged. The Empire, actor reported that he was the victim of an alleged hate crime. But it was later found out to be false. Two Nigerian males seemed to be a part of the attacking staged and paid off by Smollett. Which is why Smollett landed in jail for falsifying a report to authorities.
He was recently, nominated for an award for the NAACP. Smollett not only missed the dinner and award show but he also lost in his category to Jesse Williams for Grey’s Anatomy.
President Trump has even voiced several concerns in regards to Smollet’s case, stating it to be nonsense and an “embarrassment to our country.” He asks that the FBI & DOJ further look into the case despite the dropped charges in Chicago.
