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.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
