Jussie Smollett is sticking by his story that two white Trump supporters, wearing red hats, ski masks, gloves, called him racist and homophobic names, beat him up, poured bleach on him and attempted to lynch him.
Smollett was charged Friday with 16 felony counts of “false report of offense”, a Class 4 felony punishable by up to four years in prison, meaning he faces 64 years behind bars for sending police and FBI on a wild goose chase for 4 weeks on a fake hate crime hoax that he set up and paid for.
Smollett’s lawyers are accusing the Chicago police, the Cook County prosecutor and the Cook County grand jury of being “vindictive” and that Smollett “maintains his innocence”. Smollett attorney Mark Geragos said that charging Smollet is “prosecutorial overkill”.
Geragos is attacking the police, prosecutor, grand jury and even the media that reported, in Smollett’s favor, on the fake hate crime. “I defy anybody to find any indictment anywhere where somebody has brought 16 counts for being a victim of a hate crime,” Mark Geragos told CNN Friday evening.
“What is happening here is frankly a media gangbang of this guy of unprecedented proportions,” Geragos said. “I’ve never seen a media pendulum swing more quickly and viciously and rob somebody of their presumption of innocence like this case. It’s startling the way people assume that he’s guilty.”
Geragos continues by raising questions about the two men that Smollett paid by check to “attack” him, “This is my question: What do they have that corroborates the story? These are the two people that did it. What do they have besides their word that says he was in on this?”
Geragos said it’s redundant, vindictive, and prosecutors want to make headlines and distract people based on false information provided by the police and shameless prying into Smollett’s medical records. “Jussie adamantly maintains his innocence even if law enforcement has robbed him of that presumption,” state Geragos.
Well, we’d like to see his medical records because he states he was pummeled, beaten, kicked, and at first said he had broken ribs. Then it was a fractured rib. Then it was a bruised rib. Then 3 days later he’s singing with his band and jumping around on stage. You don’t do either with a broken rib, WORD!
We are to believe that Smollett just happened to have paid the two Nigerian men $4,000 days before the “attack” for “personal training”, but it had nothing to do with “attacking” him.
We are to believe that Smollett did not recognize either of the two black men that attacked him, even though they worked with him on ‘Empire’ and he knew them personally.
We are to believe that Smollett mistook their black skin for white skin.
And this is only the tip of the lie “iceberg” that Smollett has created.
Jussie could have negated all of this by simply purchasing our “Fake Hate Crime Hoax Kit” which comes with the #1 Bestseller “Fake Hate Crime Do It Yourself Guide”. On page #84 of the guide, Jussie would have learned Rule #159, which states that to successfully blame ‘white people’ for trying to lynch him, he should hire white people to fake the attack. Do not hire black people to fake white people, or white people to fake black people.
We are to believe that Smollett has told the truth? Even CNN and MSNBC are starting to question the veracity of the story, finally. They are still questioning the police account, but they’re just starting to ask a couple of questions. Eventually, they’ll report the truth, maybe.
Just kidding, of course they won’t tell the truth. Jussie is gay, black and a Socialist Trump hater.
