Trump says feds will review Jussie Smollett case after local charges were dropped

RadioOnFire.com - President Donald Trump said the FBI and the Department of Justice will review the Jussie Smollett case. A prosecutor unexpectedly dropped all charges Tuesday against the "Empire" actor, who was accused of staging an assault on himself -- leading Chicago police to investigate it as a possible hate crime. "FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago," Trump tweeted Thursday morning. "It is an embarrassment to our nation!"

 

The case began when Smollett, who is black and gay, told police that two men attacked him on January 29 and yelled racist and homophobic slurs while striking him, police said. Smollett said the incident ended with a noose placed around his neck and bleach poured on him, police said.
