Chicago PD had confirmed Thursday that they identified and were questioning the two “persons of interest” in the alleged racial attack. One of them has previously appeared on “Empire,” according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation.
Police say they were tracking the two suspects and were aware of who they were “for a while,” and that investigators learned that the two individuals were returning to Chicago on Wednesday from Nigeria.
The two suspects are U.S. citizens of Nigerian descent, they added.
Elder Patriot – Brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo (pictured above) have been detained for questioning in the matter by the Chicago PD.
Uh, are these the white supremacists that Smollett claimed yelled “this is MAGA country” when they attacked him?
My word, Trump’s popularity knows no bounds.
Or, perhaps the story was bullshit from the beginning, the product of the overactive mind of a second rate actor trying to maintain his relevancy.
Apparently, Smollett might’ve been acquainted with Olabinjo from a time he appeared on “Empire.”
In the aftermath of the alleged attack, ABC News reported that Smollett claimed his “attackers put a noose around his neck, poured an unknown substance, likely bleach, on him and used their hands, feet and teeth as weapons in the assault, according to police. Smollett said the attackers also yelled “This is MAGA country” during the attack.”
Following the attack, but prior to these arrests, Smollett gave an interview to ABC’s Robin Roberts that was completely inconsistent with the two current suspects:
“I have to acknowledge the lies, and the hate. And it feels like if I had said it was a Muslim, or a Mexican, or someone black, I feel like the doubters would have supported me much more. A lot more. And that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now.”
Uh, huh. This is not a good look, is it now? Another racist hate crime, that wasn’t.
Keep alive the rumor that Americans hate each other.
It’s the last arrow the psychotic Left has in its quiver.
