WTF happened ?
In a stunning move on Tuesday morning, Cook County prosecutors dropped all charges against the “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, who had been accused of staging an attack in downtown Chicago earlier this year.
“We believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” a prosecutor said in court in announcing the dismissal of all 16 counts against Mr. Smollett, The Chicago Tribunereported.
In a statement, Anne Kavanagh, a spokeswoman for Mr. Smollett’s lawyers, said:
“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.”
The statement went on: “Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”….
Could the Chicago’s Cook County DA have problems with the two ‘attackers’ as witness and truth teller also?
