Police Seize Bottle of Bleach From Jussie Smollett’s Apartment as Detectives Review “New Evidence”
The Jussie Smollett hate hoax officially blew up this week.
The Smollett hoax took an interesting turn Friday night after Chicago Police released the two Nigerian brothers who were held for 48 hours and questioned as “persons of interest.”
CWB, a local Chicago crime blog is reporting the Nigerian brothers, who appeared as extras on the show ‘Empire’ may have flipped on Jussie Smollett.
It was reported Friday that Jussie Smollett hired high-powered criminal defense attorney Michael Monico. Mr. Monico also represents Michael Cohen.
According to reports, police released the Nigerian brothers based on “new evidence” in the case — detectives are analyzing a bottle of bleach seized from Jussie Smollett’s apartment.
While it is common for a person to have bleach in their home, detectives will compare the chemical substance found on Smollett’s clothing to the bottle of bleach seized from his apartment.
Via Fox News reporter Matt Finn: Breaking: Chicago police confirm to Fox News CPD seized a bottle of bleach from Jussie Smollet’s apartment. Tonight police still call Smollett a victim. Suspects told detectives something that requires more detective work.

Jussie Smollett alleges two white Trump supporters violently attacked him at 2 AM in the streets of Chicago when he was walking home from Subway with a sandwich in his hand.
Smollett told police the attackers were white and hurled homophobic and racial slurs at him while they beat him, poured bleach on him then put a noose around his neck.
Mr. Smollett told police the attackers screamed, “This is MAGA country” while they beat him — Smollett claimed he was on the phone with his manager at the time of the beating who apparently heard the attack as well.
There is zero video surveillance of the attack even though Chicago is the most surveilled city in the world.
The walls are closing in on Jussie Smollett — it’s just a matter of time until he is charged with filing a false police report.
