The bond proffer in the Jussie Smollett case provides previously unreported details about the “Empire” actor’s hate crime hoax.
Prosecutors began by describing a threatening letter sent to Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, where “Empire” is filmed, addressed to Smollett. The actor reportedly sent this letter to himself.
On Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Defendant Smollett received a written letter at the Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, which is the facility on the Southwest Side of Chicago where the Empire Television Show is filmed. This letter contained written threats directed toward defendant Smollett, and contained a then-unknown white powdery substance. The letter also contained cut out letters pieced together which stated “Smollett Jussie you will die blacl f—,” and the word MAGA was hand written on the envelope where the return address is typically located. This powdery substancee has since been determined to be crushed ibuprofen tablets.
According to prosecutors, the letter also contained a drawing of a stick figure with a noose around its neck with a gun pointed at its head.
The proffer also describes in depth the relationship between Smollett and one of the Nigerian brothers whom he paid to carry out the “attack” against him. Ambimbola Osundairo, one of the brothers, goes by “Abel.” He appears to be closer to Smollett than Olabinjo, his brother.
“Additionally, text messages between Defendant Smollett and Abel revealed that Abel was a source of designer drugs for Defendant Smollett,” the proffer said.
The proffer describes Smollett’s plan in great detail – as relayed to investigators by Smollet himself.
“Defendant Smollett stated that he wanted [the brothers] to appear to attack him on the evening of January 28, 2019 near his apartment building in Streeterville. Defendant Smollett also stated that he wanted the brothers to catch his attention by calling him an “Empire F—— Empire N—–.” Defendant Smollett firther detailed that he wanted Abel to attack him, but not to hurt him too badly and to give him a chance to appear to fight back” it said.
The whole plan was designed not only to make Smollett look not only like a victim, but also a hero. It was painstakingly detailed.
Smollett might have gotten away with the hoax, but for the fact that his “attackers” rolled on him as soon as they were in police custody. It appears that Smollett had not planned on his “attackers” being captured, or that the brothers were not willing to be charged with crimes in order to save Smollett’s reputation.
“Following their arrest and through consultation with their attorneys, the brothers agreed to cooperate with the investigation,” the proffer said.

Roger Stone Files Motion to Remove Judge From Controversial Case
Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison this week.
Roger Stone has filed a motion to remove the presiding judge from his controversial court case on Saturday, just days after the longtime Republican political operative was sentenced to a stringent 40-month prison term for lying to federal investigators.
Stone is seeking a new trial, and his legal team is pointing out evidence of Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s bias against their client as cause for a new judge. Jackson complimented the jury after they handed on the lengthy prison sentence on Stone for process crimes, stating that they had “served with integrity.”
There’s further reason to believe that Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump in the early days of his 2016 Presidential campaign, has been made a victim of deep-seated political bias during the trial, one of the few to result from Robert Mueller’s lengthy and ultimately empty Russian interference probe.
At least one juror has stepped forward to bemoan an effort by the DOJ to dial back aggressive prosecutors seeking to place Stone in prison for an even lengthier amount of time. Juror Tomeka Heart is a committed Democrat former congressional candidate. She’s posted at length on her personal social media about her personal dislike of President Trump.
It’s rather shocking that a juror with such a distinguishable political affiliation wouldn’t be passed up in a court case with direct national political implications. Stone’s lawyers mention Heart’s partisan affiliation in their court filing for a new trial and judge.
Stone currently remains free, pending his filing for a new trial.
Tucker Carlson discussed the pressing ethical lapses surrounding Stone’s conviction and sentencing during a segment on his show Thursday night.
