Political princess, Tomi Lahren had no problem giving her honest opinions on the latest developments in the Jussie Smollett case. The actor’s lawyers try to bamboozle the courts and shifting blame on law enforcement, in an attempt to have the case dismissed from a federal court before it goes to trial.
More from Fox News:
“Now I never would have predicted all of the charges against Jussie would have been dropped after Chicago PD spent nearly $130,000 in overtime pay investigating his alleged attack, but I definitely could have predicated his lawyers would blame the city for it,” said Lahren.
Smollett’s lawyers responded to the city’s call that the former “Empire” actor pay over $130,000 to cover police overtime and other costs incurred during the investigation, after the actor claimed to be the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in Chicago earlier this year.
Although the police probe concluded that Smollett orchestrated the attack himself, his lawyers alleged last week that it was the decision of the Chicago police to investigate the case to the extent that they did — and that their client should not bear responsibility for that decision.
“The filing of a police report, in and of itself, does not necessitate a sprawling investigation nor does it, as a practical matter, usually result in an investigation as extensive as the one the CPD chose to undertake in this case,” said Smollett’s legal team.
Lahren, however, wasn’t having it.
“Jussie’s camp is really gonna fault Chicago PD for investigating his claim too much? Can you imagine if they wouldn’t have? Then what? Then Jussie would have accused the department and city of not caring about the attack,” said the Fox Nation host.
“I don’t know how Jussie does it, but he always manages to make HIMSELF the victim- in some cases, LITERALLY,” continued Lahren.
