Jussie Smollett's Phone Records Rejected by Police as New Surveillance Videos Emerge

Jussie Smollett's Phone Records Rejected by Police as New Surveillance Videos Emerge

"We have no reason to doubt the statements, but for a criminal investigation, we need to independently confirm the phone records", Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told The Post on Sunday.

Smollett's crisis manager, Chris Bastardi, told Fox News: "Jussie is the victim here, which has been stated by the Superintendent of Police". Investigators have already conducted several canvasses of the area and Guglielmi on Monday said it was not clear if the bottle was "connected or not connected" to the alleged attack. Smollett has turned over heavily redacted phone records, but evidence has begun to emerge suggesting his story was fabricated. He reportedly told police that the men used racial and homophobic slurs before beating him, pouring what may have been bleach onto him, and leaving a noose around his neck before proclaiming, "This is MAGA country", as they left.

"I've been in this neighborhood five years".

"I am working with authorities and have been 100% factual and consistent on every level", Smollett said in a previously released statement. I don't believe it, not around here ...

According to police, Smollett was found with stained clothing and "white rope draped around" his neck, as he explained an unknown chemical, presumably bleach, was poured on him in the attack. "They were limited and redacted but detectives will analyze them".

California governor to pull National Guard troops from border
Newsom's order calls for National Guard troops to be pulled back from the border no later than March 31. The troop reassignment still needs approval from the U.S.

A spokesperson for Chicago police added that the department was "appreciative" Smollett made a decision to cooperate with the investigation, but they'll likely be asking him for more phone records in order to properly review the case. "They have cameras everywhere".

Meanwhile, New York Post reports that residents who live in Jussie's building are giving the side-eye to his official version of events.

Elgas added that Chicago police have a security image of Smollett alone inside a Subway sandwich shop near the location of the reported crime, and that cops also obtained additional video placing him at the scene of the crime.

Clearly, that anonymous person is delusional, since incidents like the Laquan McDonald murder to 15 men exonerated for false arrests show Chicago is far from "the most liberal city", which has an epic history of racism.

Chicago police have not been able to identify any legitimate suspects in the case, nor have they been able to find any surveillance footage of the attack.
