Jussie Smollett’s Lawyers Claim Client Should Not Have to Pay Back Costs Because Cops ‘Over-Investigated’ Hate Hoax

They are hoping to get the case thrown out.

Disgraced actor and hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett is still trying to skirt responsibility for his actions, attempting to get a civil suit filed against him by the city of Chicago dismissed that would make him pay for the costs of the investigation.

Smollett’s attorneys filed a motion on Tuesday in response to the city demanding that he pay the $130,000 to cover the city’s costs for investigating his laughable claim that he was beaten down on the frigid Chicago streets by racist Trump supporters who claimed “this is MAGA country.”

They still have the audacity to claim that Smollett is innocent, despite the fact that the story unraveled publicly, and he is widely recognized as a liar.

Smollett’s lawyers are attempting to use Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s decision to drop charges against their client as the reasoning behind why Smollett should not be forced to pay up.

“My client from the beginning has maintained his innocence and disputed the city’s allegations,” said attorney William J. Quinlan in the motion.

He noted that “it’s going to be very difficult for the city to prevail in making a case my client should pay for overtime for a case ultimately dismissed by the state’s attorney.”

“It’s ridiculous and a stretch to require him to do so,” Quinlan added.

Quinlan continued with the apologetics for his disreputable client, who has become a nationwide laughing-stock and a poster child for the hate hoax industry has that arisen since President Donald Trump was sworn into office.

“The mere fact somebody filed a police report doesn’t presume the investigation will be done and certainly not to the extent of what the city is claiming. Smollett has no control over that,” Quinlan said.

Quinlan claimed the city of Chicago “has failed to allege that Mr. Smollett was similarly ‘well aware’ that his statements to police would result in 1,836 hours of police overtime, or any other reasons why he should have known this would have been the case.”

U.S. District Judge Virginia Kendall will ultimately rule in October whether or not the city can proceed with its civil suit to redeem the fees wasted because of Smollett’s hate hoax. There may be further consequences against Smollett too, as justice may finally be catching up with the former actor on FOX’s Empire.

Chicago defense attorney Dan Webb has been recently named as a special investigator by a Cook County judge to look into the case. President Donald Trump praised the decision to further investigate the Smollett affair on his Twitter account.

It remains to be seen if Smollett will face repercussions for making a mockery of the rule of law, or if he will be spared any consequences due to his connections with the Democratic Party and Hollywood.

Donald Trump Quits ‘Dismal’ Screen Actor’s Guild Following Threats: ‘You Have Done Nothing for Me’

Trump blasted this ineffective union before quitting.

Published

Former president Donald Trump has issued a letter to the Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) resigning from the union effective immediately after the SAG announced they were considering expulsion.

“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!” Trump wrote in the letter addressed to SAG president Gabrielle Carteris.

“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – just to name a few!” he continued.

“I’ve also greatly helped the cable television news business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others,” Trump added.

This is when Trump started maligning the SAG by pointing out their miserable record as a union, which is being sued by its own membership for failing to provide adequate healthcare benefits.

He wrote: “Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me – besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas – as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors, who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?'”

“These, however, are policy failures. Your disciplinary failures are even more egregious. I no longer wish to be associated with your union. As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation,” Trump added.

Big League Politics has reported on the film industry’s shame over having promoted Trump for so many years, helping Trump build the notoriety among the American public that allowed him to become the 45th president:

The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on a resolution to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.

“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said West Hollywood Mayor John Duran on Twitter.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will have to approve Trump’s star removal for it to be officially bar.

“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk,” said Leron Gubler, the Chamber’s president and CEO.

Among the stars that will certainly not be removed from Walk of Fame are those belonging to accused pedophile Kevin Spacey, and convicted rapist Bill Cosby.

Apparently, as long as one apologizes, Hollywood has no problem with alleged pedophilia.

Trump couldn’t have become president, changed the country forevermore, and exposed the Left’s treacherous agenda in the eyes of tens of millions of Americans without the help of the entertainment industry. They have now outlived their usefulness, but the ironic role they have played in promoting America’s revival will not be forgotten.
