Charges Dropped!

Empire Actor Jussie Smollett is no longer in legal trouble.

It was announced this morning that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office would drop all charges against Jussie Smollett.

Smollett faced more than a dozen felony counts relating to making false statements to police after he alleged that he was beaten by two MAGA-hat wearing perpetrators.

The decision to drop charges has certainly rankled the Chicago Police Department and it smells of political intrigue.

The Chicago Tribune reported back in February that Cook County State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx, recused herself from the matter.

According to various sources, while Kim Foxx recused herself, the decision to drop charges was made by the man she picked to take her place.

We are awaiting a statement by the Chicago Police Department.
