Will Jussie Smollett face federal mail fraud charges?

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday that the Jussie Smollett controversy “will never trump Chicago’s collective spirit” after the “Empire” actor was accused of orchestrating an elaborate hoax, including a fake attack against himself by Trump supporters.

“Chicago’s message to the world is that no matter where you come from, who you love, or how you pray you will always have a home here,” he said in a statement after praising police. “Our laws exist to reflect and defend those values, and hate crimes will never be tolerated.”
