Jussie Smollett escapes(?) justice

Tim Pool gives us the Jussie Smollett update. Pool notes that all charges were dropped against Smollett, which the actor is spinning as an exoneration. But the dropping of charges was in exchange for community service, i.e., in reality, an oblique admission of guilt. Smollett, of course, maintains his innocence despite mounds of evidence that he's been lying (and still is). The Chicago police, who are incensed by the way affairs have turned, say they have more evidence of Smollett's guilt to offer in court... but it looks as if that's not going to happen. Not locally, anyway, but Pool says that there's still a federal investigation going on, so Smollett's not out of the woods yet.

I just saw that Pool has put out another Smollett-related video. The vid's title isn't very promising: "How Did Jussie Smollett Get ALL Charges Dropped??! Did Police BOTCH this Case?!" I haven't watched the video yet, but I'm embedding it all the same:

I find it funny that corrupt Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel is calling the charge-dropping "a whitewash of justice." I call it Chicago politics, which has been dirty since at least the time of Al Capone. Tim Pool's theory is that Smollett's former lawyer is currently tied to the Michael Avenatti case, so someone tapped someone on the shoulder.
