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.

GOP Rep. Blows the Doors Off Russia Probe, Says HAIR-RAISING Info Is About to Drop [Watch]

HERE WE GO…

GOP Rep. Mark Meadows dropped a bomb Friday night on Fox News’ “Hannity.” No need to beat around the bush. Let’s get right down to it… From Daily Wire: Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News on Thursday night that the reason that Democrats are reacting with anger over President Donald Trump’s decision to declassify information from the Russia investigation is that they know what explosive information is about to come out that will make many of them look bad. Meadows noted, “I can tell you, there’s information coming that will curl your hair. I can tell you that the reason why it’s so visceral — the response from the Democrats is so visceral right now is because they know — they’ve seen documents. Adam Schiff has seen documents that he knows will actually put the finger pointing back at him and his Democrat colleagues, not the President of the United States. And so that’s why you’re seeing it.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132053108559769601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132053108559769601&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47666%2Fmeadows-declassifying-russia-investigation-info-ryan-saavedra Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election.

HERE WE GO: Far-Left Dem Rashida Tlaib Is Promoting Movement Designed to Destroy Israel

Isn’t that special!?

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) isn’t making headline news, it’s fellow freshman Democrat Ilhan Omar (MN). If it’s not Omar, it’s Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib (MI). Today belongs to the woman who draped herself in the Palestinian flag after winning her election last November. In case you live under a rock, Tlaib has made it abundantly clear that she isn’t the biggest fan of Israel. From Daily Wire: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) promoted the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement on Thursday which is designed to destroy Israel. Tlaib retweeted a tweet from a far-left Democrat activist that goes by the name “Rasha” on Twitter. https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132062158911549441?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132062158911549441&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F47669%2Fdemocrat-rashida-tlaib-promotes-anti-semitic-ryan-saavedra The tweet featured a video of NYU commencement speaker Steven William Thrasher who promoted the anti-Semitic movement at the school’s graduation this month. Thrasher noted, “I am so proud, so proud, of NYU’s chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine and Jewish Voices for Peace, for supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against the apartheid state government in Israel.” You know how Americans hijacked multiple planes on September 11, 2001 before crashing them into large buildings and murdering upwards of 3,000 people? That’s because Americans were not behind the attack that forever changed the world. Tlaib, known for lodging her foot directly between her lips, says she was “really afraid” of her “fellow Americans” after 9/11. You can’t make this up. From The Blaze: Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) says that she was “afraid” of Americans in the days following the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Tlaib: “I was probably my second year in law school when 9/11 happened. And I was — I was really terrified of what was going to happen to my husband, who’s only a green card holder at the time.” She added, “I immediately called my brothers and told them…
