The Chicago police Department to release more than 1,000 files of Jussie Smollett case; reaction and analysis on ‘the Five.’

“The Five” seemed to be surprised by new Videos in the Jussie Smollett case, published by the Chicago Police Department shows the entertainer wearing a sling, and his alleged attacker, dressed in hazmat suits in a Taxi.

“Will we ever find out the truth?” as a co-Moderator Juan Williams asked his co-hosts try to digest the latest footage released from the case.

“We know the truth, Juan. He staged the attack,” co-host Jesse Watters responded.

The Chicago police released blurry hundreds of files and almost 70 hours of video footage on Monday from the investigation, including the police, body cam footage from Smollett — with his face — wearing a white rope, he told investigators, his attacker wrapped around his neck.

If one of the officers Smollett asked if he wanted to, take the rope from his neck, the 37-year-old actor while saying: “Yes. I. I just wanted you to see all of it.”

The “Watters’ world” the host then jokingly suggested, the actor who tried to do a little too much with the alleged attack.

“You have MAGA insults, do you have a sling, you have to bleach, and you have a beat-down. A Pick. You don’t need all of them for the hate crime,” said Watters.

“It is a nonsense. It’s like when you escape from the abduction, to hold you to show you the ropes around her wrists, the cops are bound? No. It makes no sense at all.”

Fox Business’ Kennedy criticizes Smollett for the prolongation of the controversy by not addressing it.

“But if he just come and said something of all this would be gone. The FBI and Chicago P. D. and retired judge in the state would not sit there and go, that’s right, and we can’t think about the world that this is how we have our justice system in Chicago and in Illinois,” said Mr. Kennedy.
