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.

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.

SAD: Fake News Media Attempts to Re-Brand Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic as the ‘Trumpvirus’
Maybe Trump derangement syndrome is the real plague.
The fake news media, desperate to protect the Chinese communists who they are in the tank for, are pathetically attempting to re-brand coronavirus as the “Trumpvirus.”
The New York Times published an op/ed on Wednesday, in which author Gail Collins complained that Vice President Mike Pence would be focusing on stopping the spread of coronavirus throughout the United States.
“Yeah, when you think of Mike Pence you maybe don’t think about Pandemic Fighter Supreme. But as President Trump pointed out repeatedly, he has already run Indiana,” Collins wrote.
She added: “Well, it probably could have been worse. Having a czar does make you feel there’s somebody in charge. At least Trump didn’t come before the cameras and announce solemnly, ‘Today I’m asking every American to cross your fingers.'”
She continued to complain about the President’s behavior in the op/ed from there.
“So the problems are the Democrats and the flu. The answers are Mike Pence and … reminding the public once again that Nancy Pelosi’s district has a big homeless problem,” Collins wrote.
“Earlier in the day Trump argued, via tweet, that despite the expressions of concern by the evil media and “incompetent Do Nothing Democrat comrades,” the government is perfectly prepared to handle the coronavirus. Which he misspelled “caronavirus.” But nobody’s perfect,” she added.
Collins concluded, in a sad attempt at humor: “Chances are, if the president is encouraged to mix the subjects of coronavirus and Mexico walls, he’ll suddenly announce that we need a barrier much bigger and thicker and more expensive, so it can stop the flow of immigrant germs.”
Conservative pundits Dave Rubin and Ben Shapiro pointed out the insanity of blaming the coronavirus on Trump when the authoritarian nation of China was the clear origin of the global pandemic that now has the entire world on edge.
“So China releases a highly viral and significantly deadly virus and actively shuts down information about it, the virus hits every populated continent…and you’re calling it Trumpvirus?” Shapiro asked incredulously in a Tweet.
“I refuse to link to The NY Times anymore but yes, it’s true, the paper has been infected by Trumpvirus,” Rubin wrote.
“It starts as a standard case of Trump Dernagement (sic) Syndrome, but spreads quickly and takes over the host completely,” he added.
The fake news media is covering for their Chinese masters, and trying to assign all blame on President Trump. Their Trump derangement syndrome and the effect it is having on deranged liberals worldwide may be the worst public health crisis of all.
