Rejected: Jussie Smollet Can’t Throw Out New Charges, Illinois High Court Rules


It’s time to face the music, Jussie.

Charges that formally accuse Jussie Smollett of lying about a hate crime in Chicago cannot be thrown out, the Illinois Supreme Court has ruled.

Smollett attempted to have the case halted and thrown out, but the state’s high court has thwarted his attempt.

It was just a year ago when Smollett alleged that Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats attacked him in the middle of the night in Chicago yelling, “This is Trump Country!”

Chicago, of course, is one of the most reliably blue, liberal cities in the country.
