There is no authorized merit to his statements, and could be sanctionable.”

Schmidt provides, “The brothers were being open up and genuine with the Chicago Police Department, testified under oath in entrance of a Grand Jury, and stand ready to do so once more, in open court, if and when identified as upon to do so.”

Jussie Smolletthas taken the offensive … he is now suing the Metropolis of Chicago, saying officials produced a narrative that he was the mastermind of a hoax assault, and that has cost him dearly.

In the lawsuit, acquired by TMZ, Smollett notes the Osundairo brothers were held for forty seven hours and they adamantly denied any involvement in the assault. He suggests it was only soon after they ended up assured they’d get immunity that they begun spinning the tale of a pretend assault on the streets of Chicago.

Smollett insiststhe key attackerwas a white male.

He suggests to this day he would not know what involvement, if any, the Osundairo brothers had in the assault. He thinks the brothers were being lured into the smear campaign by cops.

Jussie is suing the Town, the Osundairo brothers and numerous officials, which include Law enforcement SuperintendentEddie Johnson.

As we claimed, the Metropolis of Chicagois suing Jussieto recoup the charges of the investigation.
