On Tuesday the shocking decision to drop the hate crime hoax charges against “Empire” star Jussie Smollett stunned all of us including the Chicago PD and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
But Smollett may not be out of the woods just yet.
An investigation into a death threat letter the actor supposedly received prior to the alleged Jan. 29 attack has been handed over to the FBI, Chicago Police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News.
Smollett initially had been suspected as the source of the letter.
“The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is working closely with our law enforcement partners on this investigation,” the U.S. Postal Service said in a statement to Fox News. “We are unable to provide any additional comment at this time.”
Chicago cops previously said Smollett allegedly resorted to staging the “bogus” attack after the threatening letter he sent himself at his Chicago Fox studio two weeks earlier didn’t garner enough attention.
“If he mailed that threatening letter to himself by using the post office, he engaged in postal fraud. That’s five to 10 years in jail — that’s three times what he’s facing for filing a false report if the feds want to go there,” Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said.
Smollett reported that he was attacked, doused with an unknown chemical substance and had a rope tied around his neck by two men who yelled “This is MAGA (Make America Great Again) country” at him on Jan. 29.
Police, however, classified Smollett as a suspect Feb. 20 for reportedly filing a false police report.
Here’s a picture of the two white supremacists who yelled “This is MAGA (Make America Great Again) country” and attacked Smollett:

LMAO! THEY BE BLACK!
The whole thing was a fabricated lie.
More charges will likely follow as Federal charges could (and should) be filed by the FBI for the fake hate letter he claimed he received.
We knew it all along.
