Jussie Smollett shocked many on Tuesday when he testified under oath that CNN anchor Don Lemon had been advising him on the police investigation into his the ‘hate crime’ he allegedly tried to fake.

As The Washington Free Beacon reports:


CNN anchor Don Lemon warned disgraced actor Jussie Smollett in 2019 that Chicago police did not believe he was the victim of a hate crime, the actor revealed in court Monday.

The former Empire actor told the court that, according to Lemon, the Chicago police did not believe Smollett’s story. Lemon admitted in 2019 he had contacted Smollett “every day” following the attack but said nothing about his knowledge of the police investigation. On Monday night, the anchor discussed the trial on his show, Don Lemon Tonight. He did not respond to Smollett’s testimony that he tipped the actor off about the investigation.

Smollett, who is black and gay, told police in 2019 he was attacked by two white men wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, who were shouting racist and homophobic slurs at him. He said the men beat him, drenched him in bleach, and left him on the ground with a noose around his neck.

Prominent Democrats, including many running as presidential candidates at the time, embraced the veracity of Smollett’s story. Then-senator and Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris called the alleged attack an “attempted modern-day lynching.” And Joe Biden, who was also running for president at the time, denounced the alleged attack as a work of “hate,” “homophobia,” and “racism.”

Lemon’s colleague Chris Cuomo was recently fired for a similar incident, attempting to use his media connections to help his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, dig up dirt on women who accused him of sexual harrassment.

Smollett demonstrated a complete lack of common sense with his farce. He seems to be continuing to shoot himself in the foot with his commentary on the witness stand. As for his buddy(?) Lemon, maybe he should go the way of Chris Cuomo!!

Lemon should have been fired years ago. He’s an insult to his profession.

These Butt Buddies are manipulative and Don Limone has a lot of influence over millions of the American Public with his slick “Race Baiting Campaign”. He needs to be held accountable since he was going back and forth advising Jussy how to manipulate and continue the HOAX !!

I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless.

The problem is we’ll still be left with CNN, which will simply fill the void with another soulless dimocrat clone, willing to sell out any journalistic integrity he/she ever had for the dimocrat cause, and their extraordinarily corrupt level of politics.

Lomon broke the law with his actions. This is interference in an investigation. I hope to hell, that Lemon gets arrested and goes to jail!
