Does Anyone Believe Jussie Smollett at This Point? Anyone at All?

Smollett Attorney Claims Osundairo Brothers Are ‘Sophisticated’ Criminals Who Set Him Up | The Daily Wire

This should be an even easier case than the defense of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s attorney claimed in his opening statement that his client was the victim of two “sophisticated” criminals — brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo — who did not like Smollett and were apparently endeavoring to set him up.

Smollett, who is charged with felony disorderly conduct — because he allegedly payed the brothers to stage a fake racist and homophobic hate crime — and filing a false report, claimed that he was attacked on a cold night in Chicago by two of former President Donald Trump’s supporters who put a rope around his neck and informed him, “This is MAGA country!”


Finn also noted that the prosecution focused heavily on the fact that Smollett had initially refused to hand over his cell phone when investigators had asked for it, arguing that it was “almost unheard of” for victims of hate crimes to deny officials access to evidence — mainly because not having that evidence could prevent them from ever catching the perpetrator. According to the prosecutor, the obvious reason for Smollett’s refusal to hand over his phone was that he did not want investigators to see that he had contacted one of the Osundairo brothers.

According to former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani — who is not a part of Smollett’s case — the prosecution’s case is a good one.

“The prosecution is strong because of corroborating, independent evidence that is consistent with Smollett making a false police report,” Rahmani told Fox News. “What type of explanation can Smollett’s attorney have to justify him contacting the brothers?”

I’ll be keeping half an eye on this. Not much more, because the case itself doesn’t interest me all that much. I just want to see racism hoaxers pay. Every single one of them.
