If he does know these two guys, what else could it be but a hoax?

If not, these two guys should go to jail.

The fact that all of the versions had Jussie with the noose still around his neck and the sandwich, never made sense. If someone has got a noose around your neck, that shit is off once you get free.

There is no way a sandwich makes it through that kind of beating. You either drop it or it gets crushed in the scuffle.

That's the same if it were Neil P. Harris or anyone. Don't project your racist goggles on to others.

The PD would never directly say they believed it was a hoax even if believing it was. They simply can't legally do that though it is being leaked by sources. They ain't gonna say anything officially until charges,dumb dumbs. It could very well be one from all we have heard, I'd tend to believe it was the entire MAGA white guys and definitely not dropping sandwich. Not calling police fast, allowing time for buddies to get away. Of course those are all conspiracy theories and sometimes stuff in press ends up being false. Could end up jealous friends, angry co-workers but sounds more like a hoax thinking about it logically from all the details. Could be a conspiracy too against Jussie.

Supposedly he was bitten. That never made sense to me. What white MAGA rednecks go around biting a black man on streets of Chicago. Judging the pictures of the two guys that encountered Jussie they are mammoth WWE looking Wrestler types!! They could knock someone out with one swing. All weird?!

Rumor has it two other people maybe involved. That would border on it being orchestrated or a conspiracy.

The suspect could pass as white sounding could be tricked if face covered with a mask. That was reason for posting. Video of suspect speaking on IG. I'm curious as to what motive was it makes zero sense.

Does this new development help of hurt his account?

He said the 2 men were his attackers and that he could ID them. But he knew them. Were they connected on social media? Were there any contacts between them that night? They need more than the phone records but a total forensic scan of all 4 phones (AT LEAST)

And there are now questions as to how did he fight both off and not drop his phone or sandwich. And do they have an accent?


Many questions.

Below are 2 links/excerpts from articles on the latest updates on the Jussie Smollett incident:

Sidenote: (Let’s remember that Jussie said he was sure the two masked men in the grainy vid were the suspects, but since the two brothers were in police custody, and news of their arrest, Jussie never made any statement claiming that the Nigerian brothers were the actual men who attacked him. Keep in mind, that whomever attacked him were wearing masks, so he never saw their faces. According to TMZ’s early reporting, TMZ claimed CPD confirmed the brothers were the ones in the grainy vid, when they labeled them as potential suspects.

However, the police stated yesterday that the brothers were ‘potential suspects’ based on what they found in the brothers’ apartment, and then arrested them for probable cause. Now the brothers have been released without charges.

Apparently if there was a lineup, Jusssie did not identify the brothers as the attackers. We will have to wait to find out from CPD what further info they have which they state they are investigating, since releasing the Nigerian brothers. If it’s not them, then the suspects are still on the loose.

Brothers Arrested in Apparent Hate Attack on Jussie Smollett Are Released Without Chargesup the btmrithers apartment

“Two brothers, who were arrested in the Jan. 29 apparent hate attack on Empire star Jussie Smollett, have been released.

“Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging,” Chicago Police Department Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter Friday evening.

“Detectives have additional investigative work to complete,” Guglielmi added.”

2 Men Detained in Jussie Smollett Case Are Released by Police

By Sopan Deb

“The two brothers arrested in connection with the reported attack on the “Empire” star Jussie Smollett were released without being charged on Friday, a police spokesman said. They are no longer considered potential suspects.

“Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the ‘Empire’ case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete,” Anthony Guglielmi, the Chicago Police Department spokesman, said in a statement.”

So the two white racist homophobic Trump loving Nigerians were released without charges and new evidence is leading to additional investigating. Hmmmmm .... wonder what that could all be about? lol

Well the Chicago PD has done exactly what they should have done. Innocent until proven guilty. It would have been a PR nightmare if they had shown any skepticism without evidence or testimony from key witnesses. The leaks were a setback, but unless the two white racist homophobic Trump loving Nigerians were paid off my guess is they provided the truth to avoid jail time.

Should be very interesting the next few days. When will the thread title be changed again?

According to this article, Jussiee obtained an attorney, who was Michael Cohen’s attorney.

Jussie Smollett Assault Suspects Sprung By Cops Due To “New Evidence” – Update

Dominic Patten
February 15, 2019 8:16PM PS


(Edited for compliance)

“The release of Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo at near 9 PM Chicago time surely means that whatever that “new evidence” is, it is a clear game changer for the ever twisting and turning Empire star case.

Adding to that, attorney Michael Monico has been now been retained by Smollett.

The Chicago-based defense lawyer is a frequent go-to-guy for high profile cases.

In the past year he represented Donald Trump’s ex-right hand man Michael Cohen in his dealings with Robert Mueller’s investigation and other related federal cases. Having seemingly spilled the beans to the ex-FBI Director to some extent or another on his lying to Congress and more, Cohen is set to start a three-year prison sentence next month.


PREVIOUSLY, 6:20 PM: A planned update on the status of the Jussie Smollett alleged assault case has been put on hold indefinitely by the Chicago police department because of the shooting tragedy today in nearby Aurora, Illinois.”

And there's this:

If people think they were directly involved and copped to it to police why then were they released? Wouldn't that be an admission of guilt?

Playing the conspiracy angle the only way I can see that is if they had inside knowledge that someone ELSE did it.

Peole assume they fingured Jussie, but then why wasn't he immediately brought in?

Oh the police are doing follow-up investigating on that.

Oh boy!

Lol, I think if the incident was staged, they would have charged the guys and not release them, but they let them go. Maybe whomever mailed him those insulting letters before the incident are the suspects. I think the authorities should take a deeper look there. shrug

At the end of the day, everyone will just have to wait and see what the final outcome will be, from CPD’s investigation, no matter all the crazy conspiracy stories some are drumming up to satisfy their own agenda about the incident.

At this point, the suspects haven’t been found yet, and their identities unknown.
