Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) deleted a Tweet from several days ago in which she said the “attack on Jussie Smollett is an affront to our humanity.”
First noted on Twitter by Nick Monroe, the Tweet is no longer live on Pelosi’s account.
In full, it read:
“The racist, homophobic attack on
@JussieSmollett is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once & for all.”
Pelosi did not publicly apologize for piling on after the media blamed supporters of President Donald J. Trump for the attack. She has not publicly commented on the event since the now-deleted Tweet.
Per Pelosi’s request, it looks like justice will be served – against Smollett, who fabricated the entire event.
Smollett allegedly paid two Nigerian friends and cast members on “Empire” to stage stunt. The pair bought the rope that was found hanging around Smollett’s neck.
The actor claimed that he was beaten, a rope was tied around his neck, and bleach was poured on him while he fought for his life. He claimed that his “attackers” yelled homophobic and racial slurs. as well as “this is MAGA country” during the “attack.”
Sunday morning, Smollett’s lawyers doubled down, insisting that Smollett is still a victim, despite what police said. Their move signals that Smollett is not ready ready to give up on the hoax just yet. Chicago Police warned that Smollett will be “held accountable” for the hoax.
Daily Mail reported that Smollett could face up to three years in jail for filing a false report.

California Democrat Harley Rouda Has a Restraining Order Against Him- Filed by His Own Mother!
That’s a new one!
A California freshman Democrat has a restraining order filed against him- by his own mother!
Harley Rouda, who represents California’s 48th Congressional district, has had a restraining order filed against him by his mother, Marlese Rouda, since 2011. View the document here. Rogue Review first reported on the bizarre legal development on Tuesday.
Rouda is legally restrained from “directly or indirectly harassing, annoying, interfering with, harassing by telephone, assaulting, or doing bodily harm, to Defendant, Marlese N. Rouda…”
Maybe a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend or wife is one thing, but it’s somewhat of a legal novelty to have a restraining order filed against you by your own mother. The order was granted by a judge in a Franklin County, Ohio Court Division of Domestic Relations, so it’s likely he engaged in poor behavior of some kind against his own mother.
An earlier clause in the restraining order bars Rouda from selling, destroying or taking possession of any household property belonging to his mother, suggesting the order might’ve been granted after Harley Rouda stole or sold some of his mother’s possessions.
Rouda is a freshman Democrat running for reelection in the Orange County District against Republican Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel. California Republicans view the formerly red, now purple congressional seat as within their reach after a Republican retook the nearby 25th district in a special election earlier this year.
There might be some mothers who have second thoughts about voting for Rouda’s reelection, after finding out that he hasn’t exactly been the most loving son to his own mother.
