Chicago Police Open Internal Investigation Into Alleged Leaks In Jussie Smollett Case

Jussie Smollett Northwestern Hospital Firings

The Chicago Police have opened an internal investigation into the Jussie Smollett case.

During the investigation, numerous pieces of information made their way into the media, and it's these leaks that have prompted the Chicago P.D.'s new investigation. "As a standard procedure when there are allegations of information being leaked, an internal investigation has been opened and we are also looking at our vulnerabilities".

Additionally, "dozens" of workers at Northwestern Memorial Hospital have been fired for improperly reviewing the medical records of Smollett.

Smollett has maintained that he is a victim and has denied all the allegations that he staged the incident. She says she never accessed the actor's chart but simply scrolled past it when looking for another patient's name. The unidentified nurse "was fired last week and believes many other nurses and staffers were fired for the same reason".

"This whole thing started off from him allegedly being attacked by some guys who appeared to be white guys wearing a hat that said "Make America Great Again", yelled epithets at him, and said, This is MAGA country", Latifah says.

Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson has previously defended the department's investigation into the attack and condemned Smollett after the actor was charged with filing a false police report.

The actor and singer is now out on $100,000 bond and is due back in court March 14 on a felony charge of disorderly conduct.

When Smollett wrote the alleged check for $3500 days before the "attack", the memo line allegedly read, "5 weeks training nutrition plan".

Soon after Smollett reported his alleged attack to police in January, reports began that it may be a hoax.

Jussie is set to return to. court on March 14th to face felony charges of disorderly conduct for claiming he was attacked on January 29th.

After his arrest, Smollett's legal team fiercely proclaimed his innocence, writing in a statement: "Today we witnessed an organized law enforcement spectacle that has no place in the American legal system".
