According to sources who spoke to CBS News, the two brothers involved in the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax are expected to testify before a grand jury.
Via CBS News:
The Jussie Smollett mystery moved into a Chicago courthouse on Tuesday. Two brothers who said the actor paid them to stage an attack on him were talking to prosecutors, sources told CBS News.
The brothers spent the afternoon at the Cook County courthouse, where a grand jury was deliberating. It’s a possible sign of increasing legal peril for the actor who says he was assaulted three weeks ago.
It was not immediately clear if they had actually testified yet, but they are expected to, according to sources. That could lead to an indictment of 36-year old Smollett.
Jussie Smollett‘s legal team said on Tuesday, “we are not going to respond to every new, anonymous accusation or rumor. Jussie will continue to cooperate with the investigation in an appropriate and respectful manner.”
