After 3 Year Delay, Jussie Smollett’s MAGA Hoax Trial Finally Begins

Jury selection is expected to begin Monday in the trial of former “Empire” star Jussie Smollett — nearly three years after he claimed he was the victim of a hate crime only to later be accused of staging the attack. The controversy significantly tarnished Smollett’s career when he was criminally charged and led to his character being written off the hit Fox televsion show “Empire.” It also brought intense scrutiny on Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office when the initial disorderly conduct charges against Smollett were suddenly dropped months later.

Wonder if Don Lemon and Kamala Harris, two early supporters of Smollett, will appear in court to show that they still have his back? Nah, highly doubt it.
