"The two men who attacked him have indicated that they attacked him, so we already know who attacked him", Holmes said.

However, as Glandian told Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday, "there is absolutely nothing to warrant" Emanuel's "not on the level" statement.

The newly released documents say that during February 15-21, Chicago police put the Osundairos up at the Chicago South Loop Hotel.

On Tuesday, the IL state attorney's office suddenly dropped the charges and his record was wiped clean, his lawyers said.

Smollett had been accused of faking a hate crime by paying two brothers to attack him.

Taraji P. Henson, Smollett's colleague on the hit show "Empire", told U.S. today she believed his guiltlessness from the start. Foxx then called Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to ask him to let the FBI investigate the alleged attack.

Glandian admitted that Smollett did speak with the brothers and she did not deny the existence of the check.

Prosecutors have said Smollett and Abel Osundairo, 25, became friends in 2017 and that Abel Osundairo was a stand-in for a character on "Empire". "And so, if we can get to the same outcomes, if we get to the same measures of justice without going through the court process, we do that".

But she said Smollett had no idea who attacked him until the brothers were later identified by police.

"It started by them having a relationship with Mr. Smollett". But she says Smollett had no idea who attacked him until the brothers were later identified by police.

When pressed about whether there was any evidence to back up their claims, she said they were asked to "do this favor".

Foxx dismissed the public outcry around it and said only the people "in the weeds" of the justice system would understand that it was actually commonplace and had happened thousands of times before.
