President Trump Announces FBI, Justice Department Probe Into Jussie Smollett Case

"I think what happened is the prosecutor could not prove its case and they chose to cut their losses short right now before going any further and getting egg on their faces", she added. But make no mistakes, I will always continue to fight for the justice, equality and betterment of marginalized people everywhere. "I think this city is still owed an apology". The whole affair left both the Chicago PD and Mayor Rahm Emanuel outraged.

The attorney general also noted that Mueller did not exonerate Trump on charges of obstruction of justice related to the investigation, such as by firing Comey.

All charges against the actor were dismissed on Tuesday in exchange for community service and Smollett forfeiting a $10,000 bond payment to the city of Chicago.

However, Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Steven Graff Levine tells Yahoo that the Empire star's case isn't closed just yet. Per De Mar, Emmanuel said he wants the memo of the reimbursement to read: "For Hoax", "I'm sorry". However, he's since clarified that he did not believe the actor was "innocent" and said "alternative prosecutions" from prison time happen on the reg in the county. "None of that has occurred in this case".

The statement concluded with a message for officials, "We respectfully request all government agencies involved live up to the ethical tenants of their office, state and local law, Supreme Court Rules on Trial Publicity as well as the Rules of Professional Responsibility for lawyers and prosecutors. My sole activity was to put the chief prosecutor in the case in touch with an alleged victim's family who had concerns about how the investigation was being characterized in public". There is no case to try. We were ready to move forward.

The authors note that the data on cannabis use was not validated by biological measures such as urine, blood or hair samples. The estimates on potency also do not include the proportion of cannabidiol (CBD), another important component of cannabis .

"Ultimately, the Chicago police investigation revealed that you knowingly filed a false police report and had in fact orchestrated your own attack", the letter from the city stated.

They acknowledge that Smollett, who is black and gay, had hired one brother as a personal trainer, but insist Smollett had no idea who attacked him along a Chicago street in late January until the brothers were later identified by police. The report also provided fresh details about the $3,500 check Smollett wrote to Abimbola "Abel" Osundairo and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo. He told a detective that at least one of the attackers was white, according to Chicago police.

A police investigation found that Smollett paid brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo to stage a hate attack against himself on January 29.

Smollett maintained his innocence after charges against him were dropped.

"I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one", he said before leaving the court building.
