Jussie Smollett destroyed his entire career when he was exposed pushing an anti-Trump hate crime hoax.
But his troubles are far from over.
And the Chicago Police Department is about to destroy him after he said something disgusting.
Jussie Smollett became so desperate to attack President Trump that he was willing to fake an insane hate crime against himself.
It was only after the investigative work of the Chicago Police Department that this became clear, and Smollett was charged with filing a false police report, only for corrupt city officials to let him off the hook.
But while some city officials may be willing to let him off, the Chicago Police aren’t, and are pursuing $130,000 to recoup the costs of the police investigation.
Instead of admitting fault, and paying the fee, Smollett’s attorneys argue he doesn’t have to pay the fee because the police shouldn’t have put so much effort in their investigation.
The Daily Caller reports:
Jussie Smollett’s legal team says the disgraced actor should not have to pay back the $130,000 cost of investigating his alleged hate crime because Chicago police shouldn’t have put so much effort into their investigation.
Smollett infamously claimed in January 2019 to be the victim of a racially and sexuality-motivated attack by two thugs who threatened him with a noose and an unknown chemical substance. In initial reports, the alleged assailants wore MAGA hats; later, Smollett denied identifying their headgear. When an investigation found no evidence of a real incident, police charged Smollett with filing a false police report for a staged incident.
When charges were dropped amid a storm of criticism, the city sought compensation for the cost of investigating the alleged hate crime hoax.
Now Smollett’s lawyers are arguing that it wasn’t the actor’s fault that the police investigated his complaint with such vigor and at such expense, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday. They have filed a motion to that effect.
Of course, his claim is absolutely insane.
If it weren’t for police putting in the investigative work they did, they would not be able to definitively prove Smollett was behind the hoax.
