This Jussie Smollett situation has been full of twists and turns.

Originally, the report was that the openly gay “Empire” actor was attacked by two men who yelled, “This is MAGA country.”

Also, Smollett allegedly told authorities that his attackers were white.

Now, late on Friday night, it is being learned that the arrested Nigerian brothers were released after being detained due to “new evidence.”

From AP News:

Chicago police say they have released two Nigerian brothers who had been arrested earlier in the week on suspicion of assaulting “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, saying that detectives have additional investigative work to complete.

The men were picked up by police Wednesday at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and their apartment was searched Thursday. They were questioned Friday but police were obliged to release them if they had not been charged within 48 hours.

On Smollett’s neighbors, via New York Post:

CHICAGO — Nearly two weeks after “Empire” star Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack, cops have yet to identify any suspects — and some people in his tony Chicago neighborhood are growing skeptical.

[…]

“I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here … Half the people are gay and the other half are black.”

WATCH:

From ABC Chicago, who noted that Smollett staged the attack with the help of others because he was being written off the show.

From ABC 7:

Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News that police are investigating whether Smollett and the two men staged the attack allegedly because Smollett was being written off of “Empire.”

[…]

The law enforcement official also told ABC News that the homes of the persons of interest were raided Wednesday night. Police removed shoes, electronic devices and other items they believe could help them they determine if the two people played any role in the assault from those homes.

It seems as though Jussie was doing whatever possible to stay relevant in an attempt to remain on the Fox hit series.

Here’s the interview Smollett conducted with Robin Roberts:

Stay tuned for more.

Dems Hold Emergency Call On Mueller Report, Plot Subpoenas, & REFUSE Classified Briefings

Just because Mueller didn’t find anything doesn’t mean Dems are done looking.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t find any connection between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. After two long years of searching, Mueller and team confirmed what conservatives had known from the start. And yet, that doesn’t mean Congressional Democrats are done digging for dirt. You can expect the “Russia collusion” narrative to live on as long as President Trump remains commander-in-chief – and that could be for a while longer. Now, Dems are panicking – and they are looking to make big moves. From Daily Wire: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called an emergency conference call of Democratic leadership Saturday afternoon to discuss how to proceed amid news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, may not result in a presidential indictment. “Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues issued Saturday morning, “While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.” […] Pelosi also made clear, in her letter ahead of the call, that Democrats do not intend to let the issue of Russian collusion go, even if Mueller’s report — as suspected — shows no evidence of actual collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to impact the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Fox News host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly 100% pro-Trump. There are times he’s in 45’s corner, and there are times he’s not. It is what it is. At the very least, Fox News can definitively say they are “fair and balanced” in that they provide…

WATCH: Ilhan Omar Encourages Muslim Crowd to ‘Raise Hell, Make People Uncomfortable’

WHOA!!

Freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar has raised plenty of hell on her own. Her anti-Israel leanings are abundantly clear. Now, Omar has encouraged Muslims to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.” And no, that’s not a typo. She actually said that. From The Blaze: Controversial freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) encouraged some 400 Los Angeles-area Muslims Saturday to “raise hell” and stand defiant in the face of what she characterized as rampant discrimination against the Muslim community. Omar’s comments came during a fundraising event for the Los Angeles chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations. She was one of several keynote speakers. Omar said, “I say raise hell, make people uncomfortable. Because here’s the truth. For far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of living as second class citizens, and frankly I’m tired of it and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109843664862355461?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109843664862355461&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109843664862355461%26created_ts%3D1553442324.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DRep.%2BIlhan%2BOmar%2B%2528D-MN%2529%2Bclaims%2Bthat%2BMuslims%2Bin%2Bthe%2BU.S.%2Bare%2B%25E2%2580%259Csecond-class%2Bcitizens%252C%25E2%2580%259D%2Bencourages%2Bthem%2Bto%2B%25E2%2580%259Craise%2Bhell%252C%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252Fhd09lCwouI%26id%3D1109843664862355461%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Omar then targeted President Trump: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109867487787544576?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109867487787544576&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theblaze.com%2Fres%2Fcommunity%2Ftwitter_embed%2F%3Fiframe_id%3Dtwitter-embed-1109867487787544576%26created_ts%3D1553448004.0%26screen_name%3DRealSaavedra%26text%3DIlhan%2BOmar%2Bsuggests%2BTrump%2Bis%2Bresponsible%2Bfor%2Bviolence%2Bagainst%2BMuslims%2Bworldwide%2Band%2Bthat%2Bhe%2Bis%2Bintentionally%2Bsendin%25E2%2580%25A6%2Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ft.co%252FscXf38C68P%26id%3D1109867487787544576%26name%3DRyan%2BSaavedra Ilhan could also care less about what pro-Israel protesters have to say. https://twitter.com/AdamMilstein/status/1109604130899849216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109604130899849216&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1109862805224644608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1109862805224644608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F45045%2Filhan-omar-trashes-pro-israel-protesters-could-ryan-saavedra South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn is one of the top Democrats in the House. He literally just insulted all Jewish Americans in one swoop in order to defend Omar, the freshman lawmaker with the wildly anti-Semitic history. Why do this? Who knows? Here are the details… From The Hill: Clyburn came to Omar’s defense Wednesday, lamenting that many of the media reports surrounding the recent controversy have omitted mentioning that Omar, who was born in Somalia, had to flee the country to escape violence and spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the United States. Her experience, Clyburn argued, is much more empirical — and powerful — than that of people who are generations removed from the Holocaust, Japanese internment camps during World…
