The report comes as lawyers for Smollett meet with prosecutors and police investigators.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said he did not know if Smollett was attending the meeting or the specifics of what was being discussed. He declined to confirm reports that subpoenas had been issued for the actors phone and bank records.
Smolletts lawyers, Todd Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, did not reply to AP requests for comment Wednesday.

He is sinking....
All of a sudden the MSM remembers how to spell "allegedly."
Trump should call a press conference and ask every member in attendance:
WHY DON’T YOU DO YOUR JOBS???
I’m amazed his lawyers haven’t had him cop to a deal that gets him a hand slap.
Unless Jussie’s thinking Crook County will let him skate.
Wonder if the Feds will...
Or if any pols were involved in this, maybe they’re after bigger fish than Jussie....
Lawyered up, big time. That happened quickly.
I’m thinking about this:. Some random petty criminal schmuck like me couldn’t get multiple big name lawyers to help me that quickly, even if I waved my wallet around. The politically connected are involved in this affair, possibly before the fact.
According to last reports, Sen. Kamala Harris is cleaning her email and twitter accounts. /sarc
but, you are not an allegedly queer actor
Whos paying for the high profile lawyer Garagos ?
“He is sinking....”
Wonder what he is sinking about? (I love this ad)
I bet he’s doing it for free, at least initially. Great publicity! Keeps his name in the news as high profile.
Ill take Not Jussie for $500 Alex
Guaranteed there are others pulling strings here, lets see who starts singing..& wonder if FBI will storm his place like Stones.
The trail leads directly to San Francisco and/or LA.
The lawyers are there to make sure the investigation goes no further than this “...poor disturbed person...”
Like with a rag?...
This D-list actor has a legal dream team - who’s footing the bill?
He’s been pictured with the very tippy-top of the black political machine, including the Obozos.
The silver lining? With this case and with the Covington HS young men, the media and the anti-Trumpers pushed too hard with their framing false narratives.
I’m rather surprised to see entities in Chicago going against this guy with such fervor.
If they convict him and block the Kenyan’s monument to himself, the Taj MaSmall, I may have to alter my opinion of the city a bit.
