As Twitchy reported last Friday, a Chicago judge had named a special prosecutor to investigate the dropping of charges against actor Jussie Smollett, who claimed he was jumped by two men who yelled, “This is MAGA country” and put a noose around his neck.
The Smollet camp isn’t giving up, and the actor’s PR firm is claiming it has corroborating evidence that backs up his whole story.

Jussie Smollett PR Team: ‘Every Iota’ Of Hate Crime Story Is True https://t.co/POtRl0grDT

Jussie Smollett’s PR team is now claiming that “every iota” of the disgraced actor’s story about being a victim of a hate crime at the hands of MAGA Trump supporters is true despite overwhelming evidence alleging the contrary.
According to the Associated Press, the PR team released a statement on Wednesday in response to the city of Chicago’s lawsuit against Smollett seeking to recoup the financial costs his investigation brought about.
The PR teams statement claims that “every iota of information … Smollett has stated has been fully corroborated.”
His PR firm? ?

If by iota you mean nothing, then we’re right with you.

This is my exact thought. You'd have to pay me a lot of money to go along with this farce. I'd have jumped that ship a long time ago.

After all this time, that’s the best they could come up with?

Oh, well if his PR firm says it, it must be true. The police and every sane person in the world are obviously wrong.#Satire

Smollett is paying them so I guess they’re doing their jobs.

The new criminal way…wear the truth down by continuing to lie at every media encounter. Be the victim you framed yourself to be. Sure your friends got in trouble but hey it was for fame right? I am sure God rewards peeps of your high moral character. Better criminal than actor!

Lol, OK, since it came from HIS PR firm, I guess that settles it. We were all wrong, my bad.
