Jury Delivers Shocking Verdict In MAGA Hate Crime Hoax

A small glimmer of hope has been restored in the American criminal justice system after a jury found Jussie Smollett GUILTY of staging a hate crime hoax perpetuated by Trump supporters.

This guilty verdict comes after another mammoth decision in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, where the jury acquitted the teenager on all counts citing self defense.

After about nine hours of deliberation, a jury slapped “Empire” actor Smollett with guilty verdicts for five out of six counts of disorderly conduct. He has not yet been sentenced.

Smollett got off on lying to police about aggravated battery only because a reasonable doubt existed since his so-called attackers were wearing masks.

Notably, Smollett was late arriving to court after the verdict was reached. The judge gave everyone a 30-minute window to make it back, but the actor came back after that timeframe.

Here are the charges Jussie Smollett was found guilty of:

  • Count 1: Smollett lied to Chicago Police Officer Muhammed Baig at around 2:45 a.m., some 45 minutes after the purported attack, claiming that he was the victim of a hate crime. He said two attackers put a rope around his neck.
  • Count 2: refers to Smollett telling the same officer he was a victim of a battery, describing attackers, claiming they were white Trump supporters, lying about the beating and pouring bleach on him.
  • Counts 3 and 4: Smollett made the same claims but to a different officer, Kimberly Murray, later that morning, at just before 6 a.m.
  • Count 5: Smollett told Murray again at around 7:15 p.m. that he was the victim of a battery.
  • Count 6: refers to Smollett reporting on Feb. 14, 2019, to detective Robert Graves that he’d been a victim of an aggravated battery.

Back in January 2019, Smollett claimed he was targeted and attacked by apparent supporters of President Donald Trump in an anti-gay, anti-black hate crime. His alleged attackers, whom he initially described as white males who yelled “This is MAGA country,” were brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo.

It came out in the trial that the brothers knew the defamed actor before the hoax and was hired by him to pose as white, racist attackers.

Notably, the brothers are both black men who knew the “Empire” star before the incident and have claimed Smollett orchestrated the “hoax.”

Smollett said the men called him a “f*****” and a “n*****,” tied a noose around his neck, poured bleach on him, and kicked him in the ribs.

As the case went national and it appeared to be staged, Smollett scrambled for a dismissal. Cook County Judge James Linn swiftly denied the request.

The trial was wrought with bad behavior in Smollett’s camp. An attorney representing the “Empire” actor falsely claimed Judge Linn “physically lunged” at her during a sidebar. On the stand Smollett was chided by Judge Linn for his argumentative testimony.

Meanwhile, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, and the entirety of liberal Hollywood has gone eerily silent on the Smollett hoax after much hysterical public outcry and grandstanding.
