Trump announces FBI, Justice Department probe into Smollett case
Trump for Canada 2020!

(CNN) – President Donald Trump again leaned into a controversial issue that has ignited his base — the case of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett — when he announced Thursday that the Department of Justice would review Smollett’s case after conservatives decried a prosecutor’s decision Tuesday to unexpectedly dropped all charges against the actor, who was accused of staging a hate crime against himself in Chicago.

“FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago,” Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday morning. “It is an embarrassment to our Nation!”

The Department of Justice declined to comment when asked about the president’s tweet.

Smollett went to police in January claiming he had been attacked by two men who tied a noose around his neck, poured bleach on him, used racial and homophobic slurs, and shouted, “This is MAGA country,” a reference to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

Initially reacting to Smollett’s claims, Trump denounced the alleged attack, as others did, telling reporters in January, “I think that’s horrible. It doesn’t get worse as far as I’m concerned.”
