Chicago Police Open Probe Into Jussie Smollett Case Leaks

Chicago Police Open Probe Into Jussie Smollett Case Leaks

'When there are allegations of information being leaked, an internal investigation has been opened and we are also looking at our vulnerabilities, ' a Chicago PD spokesman said.

The CPD is now investigating how information about the case involving Smollett made its way to various media outlets without going through the proper channels.

The Chicago Police Department is now under investigation in relation to the Jussie Smollett attack.

But after police arrested two men who were "persons of interest", police sources revealed that police suspected Smollett knew the men and had paid them $3,500 to stage the attack.

The investigation into the alleged attack ofJussie Smollett was still ongoing.

CBS Chicago reports that one of the nurses says it was a misunderstanding, as she never reviewed Smollett's chart; however she was sacked last week. The Chicago PD says there's been a ton of "inaccurate" information surfacing in the media surrounding Smollett's case and now, they're trying to crack down on who the culprit is.

Labour deputy leader Tom Watson will vote for Theresa May's Brexit deal if the prime minister agrees to a second referendum on Brexit, it has been reported.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital has reportedly fired dozens of employees, who the administration may believe viewed Jussie Smollett's medical records improperly.

Sources said those workers have been terminated after gaining access to the "Empire" actor's medical chart.

He faces 16 counts of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, the Cook County State's Attorney's Office confirmed to WLS-TV in Chicago. The actor-singer was hospitalized with cuts and bruises after he said the men poured a bleach-like substance on him and put a noose around his neck. After turning himself in, a judge set Smollett's bond for $100,000 and he was released from jail.

Chicago police called Smollett's allegedly staged attack a "publicity stunt", and expressed outrage that he had staged the attack because he was upset with his salary.

Jussie is scheduled to appear in court March 14. Prior to being officially accused of a staging a hoax, Smollett gave a televised interview where he expressed outrage at those who doubted his story.
