Jussie Smollett Goes into Full Panic Mode, Shuffles Lawyers, Hires Crises Managers

Jussie Smollett is fighting for his freedom after his hate hoax has fallen completely apart. Last week, he hired one of the nation’s best criminal defense lawyers in the country, Mike Monico.

He fired him on Sunday and named Chicago attorneys Victor Henderson and Todd Pugh as his new lawyers. He also hired Anne Kavanaugh, whose firm specializes in crises management. He is preparing for a full court press, but that may not be enough to save him. He made a lot of people look very bad when they backed him on his lies and they may not be quick to jump back up on that bandwagon.

It was reported Sunday that Jussie Smollett shuffled his criminal defense lawyers and hired a crisis management firm as the hate hoax unravels.

Fox 32 reporter Rafer Weigel said on Sunday that Michael Monico is no longer representing Jussie Smollett because there was reportedly a disagreement about the decision to release Saturday night’s statement. Mr. Smollett will now be represented by Chicago attorneys Victor Henderson and Todd Pugh.

Despite all of the reports from police sources that Jussie Smollett staged the hate crime, his lawyers pushed back in a statement late Saturday night calling the Chicago cops liars.

Jussie Smollett’s attorneys, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, released a statement late Saturday night insisting the alleged MAGA attack that took place on January 29th in the subfreezing temps in Chicago was real.

Jussie Smollett could get up to three years in prison for filing a false police report in the state of Illinois.
