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.

This story is far from being over just yet.

BOMBS AWAY! Trump Brutally Mocks Rashida Tlaib Like Never Before, & It’s Can’t Miss

DDAAAAANNNGGG!!

In case you missed the news regarding Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, AOC, and Israel, President Trump has graciously decided to sum most of it up. He went after Tlaib pretty hard. Here’s why… Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her “grandmother.” As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel. Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162490843619635201?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162490843619635201&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162493654432460801?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162493654432460801&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1162495014037049346?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162495014037049346&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Flol-trump-calls-out-rashida-tlaib-on-twitter%2F Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to let the radical freshman Democrats into the country. He listened. It’s official: Israel will bar Congresswomen @RashidaTlaib and @IlhanMN from entering Israel due to “suspected provocations and promotion of BDS” at this time the final decision is been drafted and passed for comments before a press release. https://twitter.com/danawt/status/1161952978904985601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1161952978904985601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Freport-congresswomen-ilhan-omar-and-rashida-tlaib-will-be-banned-from-entering-israel%2F From New York Post: Israel on Thursday barred Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the Jewish state, citing their support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement — a decision that unleashed a torrent of condemnation by Democratic congressional lawmakers. “The decision has been made, the decision is not to allow them to enter,” Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told Israel’s Reshet Bet Radio. Netanyahu’s words: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel. As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is…

REPORT: Not Long Before Epstein’s Arrest, He Rush-Ordered $100,000 Cement Mixer to Private Island

Hmm…Interesting, to say the LEAST!

You know when you call a business and ask them to deliver a cement mixer to your private island? Oh, have you never been in Jeffrey Epstein’s shoes? Now that a medical examiner has “confirmed” that the registered sex offender committed suicide, new information has just been released about what happened in the lead-up to his arrest. From Daily Wire: Convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein reportedly had a $100,000 cement truck rushed to his mansion in the Virgin Islands late last year, just days before a bombshell report was published by the Miami Herald which ultimately led to his arrest. Epstein “got the Carmix 5.5 XL self-loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year,” the Daily Mail reported. “Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner — even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit.” The timeline of events is important here, especially when taking into consideration other items that Epstein shipped to his other residences at times when he was facing legal troubles. Who are we kidding? Epstein was probably trying to bury some evidence, right? RIGHT!? WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPMp9edgAeg That Jeffrey Epstein could commit suicide after being on suicide watch defies belief. There are many powerful men who wanted him dead, and their secrets to die with him. Epstein epitomized the sickness in the souls of so many men. #ToxicMasculinity https://twitter.com/tonyschwartz/status/1160188139941572608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188139941572608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F I have no idea how Epstein committed suicide while under suicide watch. There needs to be a thorough investigation. More importantly, I’m saddened for all the people who will be denied answers, explanations, and justice. https://twitter.com/marclamonthill/status/1160188503780671491?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1160188503780671491&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-jeffrey-epstein-is-dead%2F BREAKING: Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide ends the criminal case against him because no one else was charged in the indictment…
