Jussie Smollett Disgraces George Floyd’s Memory, Tries To Use Protests In His Case With Chicago PD

Jussie Smollett just disgraced George Floyd’s memory in a desperate attempt to help avoid his fate. Smollett was caught in a lie that did real damage to the city of Chicago.

The city’s reputation took a hit and hundreds of thousands were spent trying to find Jussie’s attackers.

So it is a real disgrace that he is now using the protests to try to paint the cops and system as corrupt to help his doomed case. No one should believe it for a second – Smollett is no victim.

From The Daily Mail:

In 2019, he was accused of lying to cops by staging a ‘hoax’ attack which he said was racist and homophobic

The charges against him were dropped then a special prosecutor charged him again

Now, as he fights the lawsuit, he is asking for files from the police department about Eddie Johnson, the former chief of police

Johnson was fired in December 2019 after being caught drinking and kissing his female security guard during a night out

The mayor said he’d misled her and misled the public about the incident

Smollett said in court filings this weekend that he could have also been lying in his investigation into his case

His lawyers said Chicago was ‘resisting’ his attempts to ‘expose dishonesty’ at a time when ‘millions across the country rise up to protest police misconduct…’

…Smollett says the city is refusing to hand the files over and that it is trying to cover up for Johnson who, when he was first charged, gave an extraordinary press conference eviscerating the Empire actor.

‘As we see millions across the country rise up to protest and expose police misconduct, the City, by its refusal to produce the requested documents, is choosing to actively resist a citizen’s lawful efforts to reveal dishonesty, directly relating to the charges against him, throughout the department, including the police superintendent who oversaw and publicly commented on the investigation of Mr. Smollett’s report of a vicious hate crime and assault,’ Smollett’s attorneys wrote in a filing on June 6th.

Smollett says the fact that Johnson was fired for a series of ‘ethical lapses’ shows he is not credible.

When he was fired, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said he’d ‘misled’ the public and her.

Smollett says he is entitled to see records relating to Johnson’s firing because they could prove a pattern of dishonest behavior that would be relevant to his case.

‘Documents from Johnson’s termination may lead to evidence of Johnson’s lack of truthfulness during the early 2019 investigation of Mr. Smollett’s report of being assaulted and subsequent decision by the City to pursue a civil claim against Mr. Smollett knowing Mr. Smollett’s innocence,’ his attorneys wrote.

He tried to sue the city for malicious prosecution but a judge threw out the case and said he could only refile it if he is found not guilty at trial.
