Trump: Jussie Smollett Case 'Embarrassment To Our Nation,' FBI And DOJ To Review

President Trump commented on the Jussie Smollett case.

President Trump weighed in on the Jussie Smollett case Thursday morning.

"FBI & DOJ to review the outrageous Jussie Smollett case in Chicago," Trump tweeted.

"It is an embarrassment to our Nation!" Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that the Cook County State's Attorney's Office "dropped all charges against the 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett, who had been accused of staging a hate crime attack in the city's downtown in January." Just weeks prior, Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts.

"In dropping the charges, officials cited the actor's history of volunteer work and the two days of community service he had performed since his arrest, as well as his agreement to forfeit his $10,000 bond to the city," notes the Washington Post.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined others in slamming the decision, calling it a "whitewash of justice."
