Smollett team: Court cameras would show state’s flimsy case
By DON BABWIN today

CHICAGO (AP) — A lawyer for Jussie Smollett said Tuesday that she would welcome cameras in the courtroom during the “Empire” actor’s trial on charges accusing him of lying to the police, saying there has been a lot of leaked misinformation and cameras would allow the public to “see the evidence and the lack thereof.”

Attorney Tina Glandian made the comments during a brief hearing Tuesday in Cook County criminal court during which both sides agreed that cameras would be allowed at the next hearing in the case, which is scheduled for Thursday. During that hearing, the case will be assigned to a trial judge who will then likely ask Smollett to enter a plea.

During the hearing, which was held after local news organizations requested that cameras be allowed in the courtroom, Judge LeRoy Martin, Jr. said that the new judge will decide whether or not to allow cameras in the courtroom during subsequent hearings and the trial.

After the hearing, Glandian told reporters that evidence has been presented against Smollett that is “demonstrably false.”

Of all the race/sex hoaxes I've read about over the past twenty years or more, this one was the most flimsily constructed.
It fairly screamed FAKE!!!! from the first time I saw it reported on the news. And as the events transpired, it became outright laughable. No sense rehashing again all the hilarious lies Smollett invented.
Even Smollett's co-conspirators have confessed. The amount of nerve Smollett and his attorney's are demonstrating is galactic-sized in light of the mountain of damning evidence against him, Smollett.

Maybe, but at least I didn't fake a hate crime so I'm still not as low as Jussie.
