Eariler today Assistant District Attorney Ressa Lanier described in detail how defamed actor and Hoax creator Jussie Smollett planned and prepared for his staged hate crime assault.
Among the most shocking details, Lanier described how Jussie Smollett originally planned to use gasoline in the “attack” against himself, instead of bleach, and how he tried to mislead police about the race of his attackers. His attackers were not Trump fans, but instead two Nigerian-American brothers Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo, as reported by Breitbart.
According to Lanier, significant details of the attack, like the racial and homophobic slurs used and the rope around his neck were directly requested by Smollett. The actor also allegedly wanted the brothers to use gasoline on him, which did not actually happen, with bleach being used during the “attack” instead.
The 36-year-old also showed the brothers the exact area where he wanted the “attack” to take place, and showed them a surveillance camera in the area, which did not end up capturing the attack because it was turned the other way. He later pointed this camera out to police when they arrived after his “attack.”
It also looks like Smollett decided the time that it should take place, around 2am.
Smollett, further misled the police and the public, to believe his attackers were white,” Lanier said.
Smollett was arrested Thursday for filing a false report.
If Jussie Smollett is not PROSECUTED to the 'fullest extent of the law," the justice system in Chicago is COMPLETELY BROKEN…
The man could very well have started a RACE WAR….
