Facing accusations of perpetrating a hate hoax, Empire actor Jussie Smollett has secured the services of defense attorney Michael Monico.

Monico has defended high-profile individuals from criminal prosecution, such as Michael Cohen.

Smollett’s hiring of the lawyer could be a sign the Chicago actor will be charged by authorities for filing a false police report in regards to his alleged late January attack, a class four felony in Illinois. Smollett claimed he had been attacked by two Trump supporters, who doused him with bleach and chanted racial and homophobic abuse at him.

It appears more likely than ever Smollett had been lying in accusing Trump supporters of attacking him, as sources within the Chicago Police Department now attest.

Smollett may have arranged for two extras on Empire and Nigerian nationals, brothers Ambimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, to have helped stage the attack on him. The Osundairo brothers were arrested and questioned by Chicago Police in regards to their potential role in the attack Friday.

After reports that the brothers were going to be charged, they were released, as the police interview of the brothers created a need for further investigation. It’s possible that they chose to come clean about Smollett’s orchestration of the hate hoax in order to escape criminal prosecution for participating in it.

Smollett had aroused suspicion from police when he provided redacted phone records to officers for the investigation.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson had stated that Smollett would be “held accountable” if his allegations were revealed as a hoax, which now seems almost certain.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
