Jussie Smollett moved to tears as he addresses Chicago attack

"Empire" actor Jussie Smollett has responded to critics who question his report about being attacked in downtown Chicago last month, saying it was "ridiculous" to think he would lie.

"Through meticulous investigation, #ChicagoPolice detectives have identified the persons of interest in the area of the alleged attack of the Empire cast member", Guglielmi tweeted.

"Sunshine Sachs firm on Smollett phone records: 'Jussie is the victim here, which has been stated by the Superintendent of Police".

Also Thursday morning, in an interview on "Good Morning America", Smollett said that he's sick of people questioning his report and hopes police find video showing the attack.

"I'm pissed off. It's the attackers, but it's also the attacks..."

Jody Wilson-Raybould resigns from Trudeau's cabinet
They are pushing to have some of Mr Trudeau's top aides and a number of Liberal MPs appear before Parliament's justice committee. Tuesday night support started to stream in on social media for Wilson Raybould, including from some of her Liberal colleagues.

Smollett, who is black and gay, said two men beat him, subjected him to racist and homophobic insults, threw an "unknown chemical substance" on him and put a thin rope around his neck before fleeing on January 29.

The two persons of interest and Smollett are being interviewed by the police after the new development. Realizing there wasn't any food, Smollett went out first to Wallgreens, thinking it was open 24-hours, but then called Gatson to say he was instead going to Subway.

"And then it became a thing of like, 'Oh". "How can you doubt that, how can you not believe that, it's the truth?" Smollett also said he didn't initially want to give police his cellphone because the device contained private content and phone numbers. Hate crimes are on the rise, and Black trans women and trans women in general are victims of horrific violence every single day, so the idea that there were men walking around Chicago looking to act on their hate isn't a surprise to me.

Several media outlets reported that Smollett said the alleged attackers wore MAGA hats, but Smollett says that's inaccurate. "Jussie is rising above hate, racism, homophobia, and doubt surrounding the attack and instead using his voice and talent to fight back against the rising rates of violence against Black and LGBTQ people, as well as those who live at the intersection of those identities".

His manager was still on the line and Smollett said he told Moore he had been jumped.

Venezuelan crisis: Guaido gets backing from 13 European nations
Those who continue to violate the human rights of ordinary Venezuelans under an illegitimate regime will be called to account. Trump warned that military intervention remains " an option " for dealing with the crisis in Venezuela.

"I noticed the rope around my neck and I started screaming 'There's a f***ing rope around my neck", he said.

Chicago Police Department launched a hunt for his attackers who he said shouted 'This is MAGA country!' after punching his ribs, pouring bleach on him and tying a noose around his neck. He told Roberts that he was able to give only a body description of his attackers because the entire encounter happened so fast. "It felt like minutes, but it was probably like 30 seconds, honestly", Smollett said.

Cops previously said that surveillance footage showed two persons of interest in the area of the attack.

"I want that video found, found badly". "Number one, I want them to find the people that did it. You don't even want to see the truth". They called me a n*gger.
