Smollett is accused of the felony offense of filing a false police report surrounding what now appears to be a faked hate crime attack that highly charged political implications. Smollett appeared on Good Morning America and explained the specifics of the attack to host Robin Roberts, which now appears to be a complete ruse.
Chicago PD is leading a press conference at 10 AM Eastern time Thursday morning.
