The FBI is now investigating Jussie Smollett and is looking at whether he had accomplices in Chicago who directed him to stage the hate crime, law enforcement sources tell Infowars.
Leads from cell phone records apparently show that Smollett was in contact with more people than just the Nigerian brothers who could have been involved in the plot to fake the attack.
The FBI could even be looking at people within the Democratic Party machine in Chicago who were aware that Smollett planned to pull the hoax as a political stunt to demonize President Trump and his supporters.
Higher-ups working on the Empire show could also have been involved, according to the source.
This would contradict reports that Smollett’s only motive was to get a pay rise.
In a separate development, Smollett reportedly told officers that he had a drug problem and text messages show that the actor had previously tried to buy ecstasy from one of the Nigerian brothers who helped him stage the attack.
According to reports, some staff behind the scenes at Empire are still supportive of Smollett, while others want him to be fired.
Infowars will be featuring guests over the next few days covering this breaking story.
