WOW! Smollett Continues Lies – Attorneys Claim He Was Shocked to Learn His Personal Trainer Was Behind Attack

Chicago police told reporters on Saturday that the they are no longer looking at ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett as a victim in his alleged assault. Police now view Smollett as an “active participant.”

Smollett retained two criminal defense attorneys as his claims about being attacked by “Trump supporters” continues to crumble.

One of Smollett’s high-powered criminal defense lawyers, Michael Monico, also represents Michael Cohen.

Fox reported Saturday afternoon that the Nigerian brothers who were “persons of interest” and questioned by police, bought the rope found around Jussie Smollett’s neck at a local hardware store.

Jussie Smollett paid for the rope — The Nigerian brothers were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised another $500 as soon as they returned back to the US.
Smollett also had the Nigerian brothers purchase two red ball caps from Uptown Beauty Supply to wear during the attack so they would appear to be Trump supporters!

Despite the mountain of evidence fraudster Jussie Smollett still claims he is innocent… The actor is tossing the Nigerian brothers under the bus.

His attorneys released a statement last night where they claim Jussie is shocked to hear his personal trainer was behind the attack.
