Jussie Smollett's Phone Records Rejected by Cops, Proper Bill Requested
Jussie Smollett's submitted critical phone records to Chicago police, but those records have been rejected because they're not the real deal.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... what Jussie turned in 2 weeks after his alleged attack was a heavily redacted PDF file of his phone bill. Our sources say a PDF is subject to manipulation, meaning numbers can be added or deleted, although police are quick to point out there's no evidence they were in fact manipulated. The problem ... the only solid, irrefutable evidence is either the actual phone bill or a download of Jussie's phone.
As we reported, Jussie says he was on the phone with his manager at the time of the attack and the manager says he heard the racial and homophobic epithets. Chicago PD wants the phone records to authenticate a call was made. They asked Jussie for the records 2 weeks ago and received the PDF Monday.
Police say there are cameras everywhere in the area of Jussie's building, but there is still a 60-second gap in the video where you don't see the "Empire" star. So far there's no video of the attack.
Our sources say police have also retrieved security video from nearby stores to see if anybody bought rope around the time of the incident. Police are reviewing the video.
Police say Jussie remains cooperative and they are treating him as the victim of a hate crime.
As you know, Jussie says his attackers tied a rope around his neck ... police say there's video of Jussie with a rope around his neck in the lobby. They are not saying if the rope is around his neck outside the building because they say that would interfere with the investigation.
It’s already clear there was no crime. Certainly not a crime as he described it. Going to be interesting to see the coverage (or lack thereof) going forward.
Back at the beginning it was rumored to be child porn, but that’s not certain.....................
Leftists gotta keep lying about their lies.
He is digging himself in deeper trouble.
Walking that dog down its chain.
HOAX, arrest him for filing a false report.
That's my thought.
This will just go away on the left
Hmmm ... it's starting to be a reasonable thought that he may have committed one or more crimes, and that evidence thereof resides on his phone.
Keystone Kops being played by the DNC Machine.
Almost as dumb as the GOP-e
He would have been smart to let this thing drop.
“oops I lost that phone the next day in the Chicago River”
Now, he is going to charged with filing a false report to the police if not worse.
It's the same tactic democrats used against blacks with ‘black face’ in the Jim Crow South - kept blacks in their place by propping up hateful stereotypes... same as democrats use against us today.
Conservatives should bring a class action lawsuit against this creep and the press that carried the hoax as if it was true...
If he turns in the real thing, he has dug himself a wonderful false testimony trap.
Tinder date gone bad.
What they ought to do is seize his phone, but they probably won’t because it is too hot politically.
This is all just smoke and mirrors.
Law enforcement agencies readily get the info they need for investigations via the following and other court orders/subpoenas:
CALEA is not the friend of individual liberty, but it sure serves a purpose.
The individual cannot even PRODUCE the depth of detail that the carrier can. I mean look at your bill and call detail record online. That’s 25% of what the carrier knows. Plus if he uses most any google app, there’s location data equivalent to bread crumbs with date/time stamps.
This public debate about records is specious.
Yep, accidentally dropped it off a bridge.........................
