Since the reported attack on Empire star Jussie Smollett was first reported, there have been rumors popping up in the internet that the entire thing was made up. On Thursday evening  ABC and CBS News in Chicago are both claiming that Chicago police believe Jussie Smollett may have lied about the attack and staged it with two men

On January 29th in Chicago, Smollett who is openly gay,  told police he was attacked by two men. Smollett claimed the attackers yelled, “this is MAGA country,”  hurled racial and homophobic slurs at him as they beat him up and placed a noose around his neck.

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.”

A source familiar with the investigation told the ABC7 I-Team that Smollett failed to appear for an interview with detectives earlier Thursday, but has since spoken with police.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson contacted ABC7 to say they are continuing to treat Smollett as a victim and the investigation remains ongoing.

Chicago police told ABC News, “Police are investigating whether the two individuals committed the attack – or whether the attack happened at all.”

Smollett released a statement Thursday evening, saying, “Today Jussie did answer routine followup questions for Chicago Police Department and continues to cooperate.”

Smollett’s agent and Fox Entertainment each vehemently deny that he was being written off the show as he plays a crucial character in a popular program.

CBS in Chicago has more on the police investigating whether Jussie Smollett orchestrated the attack per this video:

While these two stations say they have law enforcement sources claiming while they are still investigating the Smollett incident as a crime the Chicago PD is also investigating the possibility that Jussie Smollett made the whole thing up. But the Chicago Police Department spokesman is saying the reports are unconfirmed.and their sources are inaccurate.

Kamala Says Giuliani Broke ‘Many Laws,’ Then Admits She Doesn’t Know Which Ones (Video)

So, which is it?

This guy is connected to Donald Hitler Trump. Of course he broke many laws. Which ones? How should I know, Anderson? I’m just out here saying whatever liberals want me to say. I don’t even really know why I’m running for office! That’s my Kamala Harris impression. Spot on, right? LOL. The California progressive has no shot at earning the Democrat nomination. Like all other Dems, Kamala talks and talks but has no real answers for any question. How can you say a man broke “many laws” and then not know which laws he broke? Is this a case of guilty before proven innocent? Sure sounds like it. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris claimed during a Friday interview on CNN that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani had “broken many laws,” but, when pressed on what specific laws she thinks that he has broken, Harris struggled to give any examples. Harris appeared on “Anderson Cooper 360°” where she was asked about recent reports alleging that Giuliani is under federal investigation over his business dealings in Ukraine after two men that he was allegedly connected to were arrested by federal authorities. WATCH: Kamala Harris claims that Rudy Giuliani has “broken many laws” CNN’s Anderson Cooper asks her what laws he has broken Harris responds: “Well, I, I, I don’t know” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1185379995130175488?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1185379995130175488&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fharris-claims-giuliani-has-broken-many-laws-cant-name-any Check out Kamala getting told off by an elderly woman… From Daily Wire: An elderly woman living in a nursing home blasted Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) over her health care plan on Monday during a campaign stop at the Bickford Senior Living Center in Muscatine, Iowa. WOMAN: “Can I ask you a question? I understand that you are advocating health care for everyone.” Harris: “Yes, ma’am.” WOMAN: “Who’s going to pay for it?” HARRIS: “Well, we’re…

Trump Scraps G-7 Meeting At His Doral Resort, Blasts Media & Dems for ‘Irrational Hostility’

A win for the left?

President Trump wanted to host next year’s G-7 Summit at his resort in Miami. That’s not happening anymore. As with all things Trump, the left had a conniption. What POTUS did was avoid a future headache. Trump made it clear on Twitter on Saturday night how upset he was with Dems and the mainstream media for causing yet another uproar. He also noted that this arrangement would have come at “ZERO COST to the USA.” But, it’s a done deal. Game over. No G-7 at Doral. 45’s tweets: I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185726930764611589 …..its own 50 to 70 unit building. Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185726931611852802 ….Therefore, based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020. We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately. Thank you! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185735579327193093 More from Fox News: Trump first made the suggestion to have the 2020 G7 at his Doral resort in August at the 2019 summit in France, sparking controversy over the ethics of a president profiting off an official government event. One day after Mulvaney’s announcement, a trio of Democratic lawmakers introduced legislation to block the president from hosting next year’s summit. Reps. Lois Frankel from Florida, Bennie…
