The attorney for “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett offered up a bizarre explanation for why her client blamed two white men for his alleged attack in Chicago.
“He did tell police that from what he saw, he thought it was white or pale skin, that’s what he initially said,” attorney Tina Glandian said on TODAY. “Obviously, you can disguise that. You can put make-up on. There’s a video, it took me all of five minutes when I was looking into the brothers, to of one of the brothers in whiteface doing the Joker monologue.”
A screenshot from the video to which Glandian was referring shows one of the Nigerian brothers, whom Smollett fingered as his attackers during the original police investigation, with his face painted white:
Glandian works for attorney Mark Geragos, who was recently fired as a CNN legal analyst due to his alleged involvement in Michael Avenatti’s attempt to extort Nike.
All charges against Smollett were mysteriously dropped Tuesday, and records of the case were ordered sealed. The prosecutors cited community service and his forfeiture of his $10,000 bond.
But Glandian said that those terms were not the reason for dropping the charges, adding that Smollett did both because he’s a good guy.
“He had to do nothing. There were no obligations, no conditions. These are the things that he chose to do because this is his character,” she said.
There is a tangled web of attorneys and high profile Democrats that interfered in the Smollett case. Tina Tchen, former Chief of Staff to Michelle Obama, spoke with State’s Attorney Kim Foxx on behalf of Smollett. Smollett is known to have been friends with the Obama’s. Foxx is also close with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), with whom Smollett is also acquainted.
The Department of Justice has launched an investigation into the handling of Smollett’s case.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
