Yesterday, Chicago police revealed they believe the alleged hate crime committed against ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett that occurred in late January to be a hoax, and today they arrested his supposed co-conspirators, two Nigerian nationals who had roles as extras on the TV show.
ABC 7 Chicago reporter Rob Elgas tweeted today that the “two potential suspects in the Smollett investigation” have been arrested, and are not free to leave police custody.
BREAKING: The two potential suspects in the Smollet investigation ARE under arrest. They are not able to leave; police have them under arrest.

As Big League Politics reported yesterday, the two men, Nigerian immigrants, are believed to have conspired with Smollett to create the fictitious crime.
Smollett stated that two white men sporting Make America Great Again hats attacked him in late January, beating him, pouring bleach on his person, and tying a noose around his neck. No security camera footage could be found of the attack, Smollett, or the attackers, and Smollett refused to give the Chicago Police Department access to his phone to verify his story.
Police believe the crime may have been staged, in part, to convince the writers of ‘Empire’ that Smollett’s character should remain on the show.
Police believe that Smollett actually orchestrated the attack with the help of two accomplices in part because he was being written out of the show ‘Empire.’ Being the victim of a supposed hate crime could have persuaded the show’s writers to maintain his character’s role.
It’s believed that Smollett obtained assistance from two accomplices, Nigerian nationals who were extras on the show, in staging the event. Police carried out a search warrant on the homes of the suspected fraudsters, who seem to have been two men identified as persons of interest on surveillance camera footage from the night of the supposed event.
The two alleged accomplices then fled the country in late January, returning only earlier this week. Police questioned them about the crime and arrested them Friday.
One of the men allegedly spent time in Smollett’s apartment building, as a Chicago watchdog group located cell phone footage of one man using exercise equipment in his apartment building and reposted it to Twitter on Friday.

Smollett and the two Nigerian men may be in serious legal trouble, as lying to the police is considered a Class 4 Felony in the state of Illinois.

ET TU, TUCKER? Carlson Suggests Sidney Powell Has No Evidence of Vote Steal Coup on ‘Fox News’
Has he been compromised?
After the inspiring press conference by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell on Thursday about the Trump campaign’s steadfast dedication toward fighting voter fraud, supporters of President Trump expected Fox News host Tucker Carlson to support these efforts to save America.
Unfortunately, that is not what happened, as Carlson went off on Powell, making statements on his primetime program implying that she has no evidence for her claims.
“For more than a week, Powell has been all over conservative media with the following story: This election was stolen by a collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software in order to flip millions of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden,” Carlson said.
“The other day on television, Powell said of Trump, that when the fraud is finally uncovered, ‘I think we’ll find that he had at least 80 million votes.’ In other words, rigged software stole about seven million votes in this election,” he added.
At this point, Carlson’s commentary went off the rails, and he appeared to be carrying water for the color revolution coup that has culminated with the vote steal of the century.
“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened the whole time at wrapped attention…But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests,” Carlson said.
“When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either,” he added.
Because Powell does not want to jeopardize any court case which the fate of the entire nation rests upon by blabbing to the media or any bureaucrats, Carlson is attacking her credibility.
“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another…We’re telling you this because it’s true,” he said.

Tucker Carlson says Trump campaign unwilling to provide evidence to back their claims

Big League Politics has reported on the left-ward shift of Fox News in recent months, which Carlson has up to this point pushed back against:
After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.
“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.
“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded…
He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect…
It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.
Hopefully this is not a sign that Carlson has folded to the globalist establishment.
