Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is not backing down from his mission to make Jussie Smollett pay for his crimes — literally:

And Jussie Smollett’s lawyers are fighting back with the best weapon they’ve got: brazen dishonesty.

Jussie Smollett hasn’t paid nearly enough for what he’s done. If anyone’s getting dragged through the mud, it’s the Osundairo brothers. Smollett used them and threw them to the wolves without a second thought. He’s in no position to be demanding anything from anyone, let alone an apology. But that’s exactly what he’s doing.

This is straight-up insane.

Update:

A reminder from Tiana Lowe about “innocent man” Jussie Smollett:

Smollett was garbage long before he faked the hate crime — and he’ll be garbage long after.
