At this point, we really shouldn’t be surprised that Jussie Smollett and his highly ethical legal team would consider pulling something like this:

Jussie Smollet and his legal team say they are “weighing our options” and could file lawsuit after charges against the "Empire" actor were dropped yesterday.https://t.co/dobxZrMAJl

More from the New York Post:
Tina Glandian appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to address prosecutors’ stunning decision the day before to drop all 16 felony counts against the actor.
“We’re weighing our options now,” Glandian said in response to co-host George Stephanopoulos’ question, “Are you going to sue?”
“For Jussie, what’s really important is he really just wants his career and his life back,” the lawyer continued. “Again, he did not ask for any of this, he was a victim of a crime.”
It was not immediately clear whom Smollett would sue.
Given everything he’s done, we wouldn’t put it past him. Anyone who tries to play the victim card after perpetrating a hate crime hoax certainly isn’t the type of person to stop behaving like an entitled jackass.

Now that would be justice.
By the way, this is why you should never be shocked at the brazenness of a trueborn liar. The man is an actor, lying is second nature for him.

It’s the only thing Jussie Smollett seems to be good at.

Somehow this ends with Smollett winning $10 million in damages and an apology from Rahm https://t.co/A21MvZwLmD

Ugh. The way things have been going, don’t be surprised if that’s exactly what happens.
