The Chicago Police Department released pages of redacted documents a day after the Cook County state's attorney's office persuaded a judge to drop all charges against actor Jussie Smollett.

Smollett, who is biracial and openly homosexual, told police he was attacked by 2 Trump supporters who yelled racist and anti-homosexual slurs at him outside his Chicago condo on Jan. 29.

The Empire star was arrested on Feb. 20 after two Chicago brothers told police he paid them to stage a hoax hate crime against him.

He was later charged with 16 felonies for lying to police. But in a stunning reversal on Tuesday, a judge dropped all charges against Smollett. In another unusual move, the judge ordered his criminal record wiped clean and his case sealed.

Smollett agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bond which will be paid to the police department to offset the costs of investigating his lies.

On Wednesday, police released redacted documents as part of their "iron-clad" case against Smollett. According to the Chicago Tribune, the 61-page file lays out in detail the state's case against the actor.

The documents detail the investigation behind the scenes that included interviews with unnamed witnesses in front of the grand jury.

Police said they may not be able to release future documents because the case is under seal.

Rumors are rampant that Smollett's phone records contain "hundreds" of text messages exchanged between Smollett and one of Chicago's most prestigious political families, as well as Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx, and other well-connected Chicago politicians and civic leaders.

Previously released text messages show Foxx communicating with former first lady Michelle Obama's former chief of staff and fixer, Tina Tchen.

Foxx had earlier recused herself from the case. In a radio interview on Tuesday, she denied being responsible for dropping the charges against Smollett. It was reported Tuesday that billionaire globalist George Soros donated $408,000 to Foxx.

Police and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel say they were not alerted prior to the judge's ruling. In a tense news conference on Tuesday, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Mayor Emanuel called Smollett a liar and they said he used his privilege to degrade the judicial system.

Chicago residents vented their outrage on social media.

    Nobody is going to associate with this lying nut after it’s all said and done..I’m glad his sister the real actor hasn’t said a peep...

  • WhoKnew

    Not this again. I'm so done with this story. His karma is going to kick him in the ass but I'm sure he's going to love getting his karma in the ass. Dumb prick.

  • RespectSelf

    smh... They played the police and they are BIG MAD about it.

  • WhoKnew

    Smart on her part because she ain't trying to dry up her money by opening her mouth in defense of her dumb ass brova.

  • Nina Ross

    Out of all the black people that need help... this is who the choose?

  • Marlika

    Especially with an unemployed husband or being the main bread winner.?????

  • Trey

    The fact that the grand jury indicted and the DA dropped all charges shows somebody circumvented the law

  • Trey

    What does Big Mad mean?

  • TheOwley

    Smollett's team is considering bringing a lawsuit against the Chicago PD. I hope he does because he will have to sit on the hot seat and if he commits perjury, it's jail time. Also, there will be a jury seated. What a fool. Looks like the people will get the trial the DA circumvented after all.

  • Ms. EJ

    She disabled comments, but she posted a statement from the family supporting him, as well as, a quote about media attacks with Malcom X. People were cussing her, her husband and family out. BFF Gabrey Sibourey sp posted his photo and the charges being dismissed. She, too disabled her comments.

  • Li-Wright

    The mayor & chief are livid. Releasing the records only causes embarassment to Jussie and lets him be seen for what he was. And yes, I do believe the Obamas made a call, and then Kim Foxx talked to the family, and then it went through Operation Push and they brokered the deal. It's strange if it happened that way because President Obama didn't commute or pardon Jesse Jr's prison sentence....Obama doesn't like Jesse Sr. But you never know...maybe Michele was the one who got the ball rolling.
    the story won't die. Rahm is mad mad mad.
    In the first place, Jussie don't call the police next time. Just walk into the hospital, get treated and go home.
    Also, it's very rare to have records sealed. And it's unusual for the prosecutors not letting the police and the feds know about the negotiating.

  • Li-Wright

    Jussie just now joined Operation Push over the past week....that's Jesse's organization. So somebody told him to go to Jesse who knows a lot of important people. But 2 days of community service is nonsense. How about one month of community service?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Here I go again. How are the police force and law officials mad because Jussie’s lawyers used a legal opportunity that was available to him and call it injustice. Then turn around and not follow the judge’s orders? Quite hypocritical. #DontHateThePlayer #RespectAllGame

  • Ms. EJ

    Her husband Josiah Bell makes money as a singer and producer of music, but I do believe she does make more than him. He is extremely talented and can sing his butt off I'll give him that.

  • WhoKnew

    See this some raggedy shyt. '

  • TheOwley

    For more reason the feds should jump in and investigate the DA's office and take over the case.

  • MrsSpice1

    Oh stfu CPD!!! why yall wasnt this committed to the Kenneka Jenkins case?!?? Or all the THOUSANDS OF UNSOLVED CRIMES AMONGST BLACKS IN CHICAGO HUH U CROOKED COPS?!??!? They just mad they missin out on all the fame and money they was probably looking to get off of this “high profile case.” Probably thought it would help their screwed up image in locking him up!! They themselves dont have much proof of him lieying(and well know..??)!! BUT Until u mofos arrest all the bbq beckys and uncle toms that made false police reports on innocent black ppl ??!!

  • Ms. EJ

    It sure is. Gabby, stated indirectly how basically everyone has egg their face now that charges have been dropped.

  • Li-Wright

    Won't happen. The feds don't want to get involved in State matters. However, the police union is so hard on Kim Foxx's butt, they're going to lead a campaign next year to get her out.

  • Li-Wright

    The mayor is considering suing Jussie to cover the PD cost of investigating.

  • Guest

    This shit again. I'll be back later>>>>>>

  • Ms. EJ

    I still feel that she was murdered and seeing the real photos of her body and crime scene confirmed it for me.

  • TheOwley

    This goes beyond JS. Say you are accused of a crime in Chicago. All anyone has to do is point out the corruption in the DA's office and specifically in this case, and you can walk from your case.

    The entire DA's office is now soiled thanks to JS and the people behind the curtain that let him off. I hope Kim believes it was worth it to put her career and law license on the line. Personally, I wouldn't hire her. She's a crook and don't lawyers have enough issues.

  • Yoni7

    Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Mayor Emanuel called Smollett a liar and they said he used his privilege to degrade the judicial system.
    _____________
    Oh they MAD MAD!
    Somebody said Emanuel didn't raise his voice this much about LaQuan McDonald.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    The lawmakers always get mad when a minority finds out about the rules and laws that non minorities have used for years use those same laws to get away with charges. If he was white there wouldnt be a whisper about this at all !!!!

  • Ms. EJ

    True. I still feel something in the milk isn't clean.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    All of this over some fake fiasco ?????

    Jussie got what he wanted. Publicity and notoriety. He’s disgusting.

    I have no sympathy for the self-identified “gay Tupac” ?

  • TheOwley

    If charges were dropped, why the need for assigning community service or letting the city keep $10K. It's like they can't even keep it straight with the lies. And yes, he did community service stuffing envelopes.

  • Yoni7

    Mad mad.

  • Ms. EJ

    Question Fonts do you think he can still get work? Do you think he will be able to get his reputation back? I ask, because a lot of folks in the Hollywood circle seem to support him.

  • Grace Turner

    Meanwhile Black women are missing, crime and gun violence is up and black people are being killef for their organs, but nevermind that Jussie Smollet is the bigger concern! Smh

  • Yoni7

    Are they going to go and find the attackers?

  • Courtney Wheeler

    bull shit. a grand jury will indict a ham sandwich, its not a high level of burden to get an indictment. try again

  • morenYAHdelsur

    LOL I guess child.

    Jussie had a whole damn omelette then! When we found out the attackers were Nigerian! ??????

  • Courtney Wheeler

    So dailymail is reporting a story regarding a 5-year-old Chicago resident whose birthday party was ruined because CPD executed a search warrant on the home, for a person who hasn’t resided in the home in five years. They ransacked the place.

    Maybe they should focus their resources on proper paperwork or procedures when it comes to them messing up!

    PS- Jussie is a joke!

  • Ms. EJ

    I kinda think the same.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Mentally wise he’s not..

    Lawd that was definitely his white side dancing lmao. But damn his body is still on point after all these years!

  • Trey

    Thats because Jussie forfeited his bond....its like "Im innocent, but Im willing to do these things to go forward with you dropping the charges".

    If he was TRULY innocent...he would asking for ALL his bond money back because it would be a "dismissal"

  • joel adams

    No need to really discuss this anymore. The judge considered his community service for gay rights and spotless record beforehand. There will always be a cloud of lies associated with him but black twitter forgives anyone who brings God into the situation.

  • Yoni7

    Maybe he forgot that the Feds are still investigating to see if he wrote that might be a faked death-threat letter to himself. If they decide that he did, he's stiff facing Federal charges, so he's not out of the woods yet. Homie needs to humble himself a little bit.

Meaning, I get the feeling he would be straight up about his sexual proclivities; doesn't seem like the type that would hide it from someone he is intimate with, but I could be wrong. The Shemar threads on LA are classic! Oh, the stories they have on him! I have read it ALL from he is 100% gay to he is 100% hetero to he will and I quote "fugg your soul out your body" to he done made many women get abortions...all I know is them dance videos NEVER cease to entertain and make me laugh.

  • Whirl

    Time and time again the Chicago Police Department behaves as if they are above the law. Everyone knew the records were sealed yet they acted as if they don’t have to follow the rule of law. It is a police department gone rogue. Jussie needs to sue. It appears that the fact that the Chicago Police Department has been assigned a federal court monitor to ensure the department cease and desists from treading on private citizen’s rights are having no effect. It appears the department doesn’t feel the need to observe the very laws they have been charged with enforcing.

  • Banka

    Indeed/agreed ....

  • Whirl

    The feds should stay on it so we can get an update on the conclusion of the Chicago Police Department investigation into themselves over the leaks.

  • Bonita

    That too!

  • Whirl

    The Chicago Police Department is acting as if they have no respect for the law they. They knew the judge sealed the documents yet they defied the order and released the documents anyway. We have yet to hear the conclusion of the Chicago Police Department’s investigation into themselves over the leaks. The federal court monitor appointed to make sure the Chicago police department stop violating civil rights doesn’t seem to be helping. Who enforces the law for those charged with enforcing the law?

  • Whirl

    Trump promised to do something what happened to that promise?

  • NewNew

    I hope the Obamas have nothing to do with Jussie's shenanigans. This would be the absolute worst hill to die on if they are involved. I don't believe them to be that stupid.

  • Sha

    That's because he is NOT innocent. They never send he was innocent just ALL charges dropped. It was a big mess from the start. I hope he learned a lesson.

  • Whirl

    I’m so sick of hearing about celebrity news in Chicago ALL I WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IS THEM GETTING THOSE CRIME STATISTICS DOWN AND PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID HE WAS GONNA DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT WHEN HE RAN NOW CRICKETS.

  • Paula Hameen

    That doesn’t make it right. Jussie needs to be punished for his actions.

  • Whirl

    The Chicago Police Department is not the law. They are there only to enforce the law. They defied the judge and released those records knowing the judge sealed the case. That police department acts as if they don’t have to follow the rule of law.

  • Whirl

    Why are people hammering Kim Foxx. She was not the prosecuting attorney who dropped the charges a white male prosecutor did but I guess it’s easier to dump on her cause she’s a black woman without even mentioning the white male prosecutor who actually dropped he charges. Forget dropping the blame on the white male who did it just deposit the blame on the nearest black woman right? FOH!

  • PlayerP

    Thought this was interesting/compelling:

    Serak • 7 hours ago
    Jussie Smollett was a willing scapegoat for the white LGBTQ to edit LGBTQ-coded language into the 2019 Anti-Lynch bill signed by Democrats Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, and supported by Lisa Borders (former #TimesUp president).

    Smollett campaigned with Kamala Harris/Cory Booker/Lisa Borders on federal rights for LGBTQ groups just days before the hoax in Chicago?

    Directly after the staged "attack", the Anti-Lynching Bill, created to make lynching a federal hate crime inspired by the history of black lynchings in the US, was *edited* to include protections for the LGBTQ. News outlets over-emphasized the attack as "HOMOPHOBIC", but directly after the bill passed, they began under-emphasizing the attack as "homophobic," and just called it a "hateful" attack.

    Once investigations began, two things happened immediately:

    ? State's Attorney Kim Foxx (who went after R. Kelly) recused herself from the Smollett case.
    ? Lisa Borders resigned as president of #TimesUp.

    News outlets spent the Entirety of Black History Month discussing Smollett before concluding it was a Hoax.

    One month later, Kim Fox un-recuses herself from the Smollett case and drops all charges against Smollett.

    Now a Pro-LGBTQ Black female Democrat named Lori Lightfoot is leading in the poll to become Chicago's next mayor while vowing to expand protections for the LGBTQ.

  • Evillene

    This just needs to go away now. He didn't kill, rob, rape or injure anyone. Why is everyone so pressed????!!!!!!! Because he's black? Because he's gay? Our tax dollars should be reserved for the prosecution and imprisonment of DANGEROUS criminals. Make him pay restitution and send him on his way. Reasonably well-connected yt people get away with murder everyday. Some people will begrudge a black person anything.

  • ALLMINE?

    Black folks told him not to get involved. I clearly remember

  • Evillene

    Well...that's taking it a little too far. But I can see how he has been wronged by this process.

  • Evillene

    Because they don't know no better.

    Which is exactly why Jussie needs to sue. If they can break a ruling, Jussie can too. F*ck those shady mfers

    That part ??

  • The Art

    That whole "MAGA country" thing is why people won't let this go. That little nuance politicized it and pulled in the dirty mud slinging folks with other agendas. Jussie did it to himself.

  • The Art

    The Obmama's aint got nothing to do with this nut job or this bs case. And the woman who did have a connection to the Obama's was a former employee. The right is just politicizing this because they feel that the media does the same thing to anyone loosely associated with Trump.

  • Pamela

    This has nothing to do with the Obamas. Period.

  • wigmon68

    Do you tinkg the crime that he alleged occurred (assault, homophobic, racial slurs, political attack, mock hanging, bleached, etc) would have been a severe crime? Why would the faking of said crime to trigger outrage, or benefit financially be any better/worse?

  • LeeSeeCee

    Rahm was heated this morning on GMA. I'm like why is he so pissed about this? Your PD is in shambles and your city is a war zone. Releasing documents on a sealed case seems like the reach is EXTRA for Jussie. His career as it stands is gone. The career he was trying to achieve, NEVER EVER going to happen. He will NEVER get that level of work again because of this mess.

  • Whirl

    LIES!!! She did not “unrecuse” herself. In fact it wasn’t her who dropped the charges it was a white male prosecutor but I guess it’s easier to wrongfully dump the blame on a black woman rather than the white male whose shoulders the blame squarely belongs. You are even willing to lie to uphold racist misogynist traditions. Racist! I’ll be so glad when the Russian trolls find another home. https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2019/03/27/chicago-prosecutor-smollett-not-innocent-sot-nr-vpx.cnn

  • Whirl

    He doesn’t even acknowledge the Chicago police department currently has a federal court monitor due to the Chicago Police Department repeatedly violating private citizens civil rights. And why didn’t he address the Chicago Police Department investigation into themselves? It’s like the Chicago Police Department is okay with wrong doing so long as it’s them doing the wrong doing when in fact they should be held to a higher standard! They knew the judge sealed the documents yet got slick and released their documents anyway. It’s like they don’t feel obligated to adhere to the rule of law themselves.

    We are voting for a NEW MAYOR in less then 2 weeks ! NowTHIS eruption! CPD and mayor are embarrassed that they were left out of the loop! They feel disrespected now we have a pissing contest!

    Jussie had no idea of the huge SNOWBALL effect that he was creating that night. What he thought would be a small hiccup turned into a HUGE consequence! His career / reputation as well as others is now ruined,

    Chicago don’t get distracted! We’ve got to go vote!!

    And you RIGHT that city IS a war zone. President Trump promised to do something when he ran now he acting like he got amnesia.

    I saw that too...I just thought this persons theory had weight...clearly there's deception to go around.

    Smh, they (Chicago PD) are also.showing how corrupt they are by releasing unredacted documents. Is this the battle they want to fight after all the years of alleged corruption?

  • dontgetblocked

    He needs to watch his step. Ain't nothing like the popo coming after you. You see how that one cop put a hit out on 50 cents.

  • The Gay Tupac

    Yeah, what LeBrick James said!

  • The Gay Tupac

    I know I'm so annoyed by this what about what about WHAT ABOUT. The Jussie Smollett outcome was straight BS. All of it is.

  • Sweetness

    It ain't safe ?it ain't safe ?it ain't safe ?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I can't believe the Obama's got involved in this nonsense and made Rahm play along. He's not pissed, he's in on this too. He had to pretend to be outraged as part of the plan.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    See what I mean? Rahm is out and DGAF, so yes, he pulled some strings when the Obama's called in this favor of him and Foxx.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    He was acting. Like the person that stole your money, but helping you look for it? Yeah, that.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah it does. It's not cut and dry or easily traced back to them, but they're involved.

  • Li-Wright

    Harvey TMZ on Jussie Bizarre! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXW7RU9z4Yg

  • Li-Wright

    Oh Give it a break!!!!

  • Li-Wright

    It was a bad stunt.

  • Li-Wright

    Give it a break!!!

  • Li-Wright

    The city is NOT a war zone. I live in the city and I walk the streets at night, work at night, go to the theater, nothing happening to me.

  • Li-Wright

    WHO? Are you?

  • Li-Wright

    You're right, it was a bad stunt. But the police had to investigate it after he reported it. He should have just went his arse home and kept quiet. He was trying to increase his profile, and it back fired.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I've heard of her but I'm not familiar with her Rel show.

  • Li-Wright

    Well....the State's attorney acted like they didn't have to follow the rule of law :)

  • Antigone Heart

    I have BTS concert tickets for both the Los Angeles and Chicago venues, but I have been divided by my current decision to travel to Chicago ?.

  • Li-Wright

    What's strange is that the feds are still investigating the letter....who sent the letter?

  • J’aime Sucer

    He's so innocent that he forfeited is bond to the police and did community service. Bye Felicia

  • J’aime Sucer

    did you miss the part of the article about the text messages between her and Jussie's family? after she supposedly recused herself?

  • J’aime Sucer

    the article clearly says there are things the police know they can't release. they released that which could be released.

  • J’aime Sucer

    Kim and that weave are both hideous

  • Logan Roberts

    I guess we're going to keep hearing about this story until Jussie does something else.

  • wigmon68

    Its what jussie said happened. told it to police and to the nation on gma.

  • wigmon68

    The woman was a little more than an employee. she was michelle's chief of staff, in other words, her most trusted confidant. That in and of itself does not prove anything, but it does at least prompt some questions.

  • Mikayla

    They should have at least made him publicly apologize in exchange for the help. His “lie” is damaging

  • Mikayla

    Why do people say that? Jussie’s the one with egg on his face. Nobody innocent pays $10,000. The charges would just get dropped

  • Ghost

    United WE STAND! Don’t get caught up in TRUMP’S HYPE! Smh

  • Mikayla

    He won’t listen to you. He can’t. He’s an attention hog and some idiots still believe his story. He ain’t even close to done

  • Mikayla

    What did Obama do? You know, the “black” one, from Chicago...

  • Mikayla

    What do you mean “we?” Jussie’s just as white as he is black

  • JENNYJONES1

    AND THE CPD DOESN'T REALIZE THE CONSEQUENCES OF GOING AGAINST A JUDGE'S ORDERS. SOMEBODY IS ABUT TO BE IN THE SAME BOAT AS JUSSIE AKA W/O A JOB. IDIOT MOVE B/C JUDGES HATE TO BE IGNORED AND NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    NO MATTER WHAT JUSSIE HAS LOST I JUST WONDER IS HE WORTH LOSING THEIR JOBS OVER B/C I'M SURE THE JUDGE WILL FIND OUT WHO RELEASED THOSE REDACTED DOCS AND HEADS WILL ROLL........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Lady_Elle

    I guess we will see how he is supported going forward.

  • Hmmm~?

    All of this was planned. This was a humiliation ritual that most celebrities have to endure to advance their fame. Britney Spears 2007 meltdown is the most notable, however it’s countless more (Cardi B’s fight/knot at the VMAs, Tyga’s tranny exposé, Meek Mill/Drake beef, Kobe Bryant rape incident, Chris Brown/Rihanna domestic abuse fiasco, Taylor Swift/Kanye, R.Kelly...) the list goes on. All of these scenarios are fake, pre-planned and are required in order for celebrities to remain relevant. They’re a part of their contracts. The entertainment biz is very twisted and sinister. Celebrities have to endure many unspeakable things on the regular to guarantee their continued success. Jussie is only experiencing the tip of the iceberg.

  • Harley

    There is so much more to this... politics... kamala Harris... the lynching bill... so much deeper but I digress

  • Omandesert

    I live in Chicago. A young cop was just shot by three men, supposedly mistaken identity. a fifteen year old was shot and killed Wednesday and car jackings are in the news. It’s a war zone.

  • Li-Wright

    Definition of war zone. 1 : a zone in which belligerents are waging war
    broadly : an area marked by extreme violence. 2 : a designated area
    especially on the high seas within which rights of neutrals are not
    respected by a belligerent nation in time of war.

    Maybe YOU live in the part of the city that's a war zone, but I don't.

  • Li-Wright

    Until Jussie gives a press conference or sit down interview again?

  • Li-Wright

    The feds are reviewing the SA's move to discharge....and they have the police files and Jussie's Icloud account.

  • Pamela

    Do tell. How are they involved? Or could it be they're involved by osmosis?

  • Pamela

    Is that so? Care to post your sources?

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins
  • Ghost

    Woke up to this...smh! I’m mad at Kim FOXX , but also feel bad for her! She’s learning some REAL lessons in her first term ...

  • C H David Byrd

    I have been saying this from the beginning...and it is distracting us from the real issues...

  • Kayke

    His lie is damaging to himself.

  • BorisBlack1

    Nah, it's because he's faking while Real Racist Attacks are being ignored and questioned.

  • Trace da Ace

    pass....

  • SmartAtheist

    More bullshit fake knows, rolls eyes yawns.

  • Mister Fantastic

    That Foxx chick sho is ugly...

  • parisjok
