The former Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Yoo, says Jussie Smollett, can not be made to pay back the money, the resources, to investigate his alleged false claims.

Al Sharpton, on the sidelines of a meeting with Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said on Thursday that “Empire” star Jussie Smollett face should be “responsibility to the maximum”, when the actor, in fact, staged an attack in the past month, initially described as a hate crime.

“Who will with wrong numbers, the maximum. If Smollett is wrong, it should be a duty in the face of accountability, to the maximum,” cable news host and activist, told a crowd of reporters on Thursday, after lunch with Sen. Harris to Sylvia’s, a landmark restaurant in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.

Harris, who at first was called the incident a “modern lynching” have no additional statement about the case in the light of recent developments.


Sharpton spoke hours after Smollett revealed to the authorities and was charged for filing a false police report, in relation to allegations that he orchestrated the attack against itself. The police says the actor, who is black and gay, hired two brothers who are also black on the stage, what was reported, the actor was a racist and homophobic attack against him early on Jan. 29 in downtown Chicago.

If Smollett attacked first, it was alleged that he, Sharpton came out in support of the actor.


But on Sunday, according to numerous reports, that Smollett had organized, the incident, Sharpton changed his mind.

“Let’s get to the bottom of this and let justice be done, no matter who is right or wrong,” he said on his MSNBC program “politics Nation.”

Sharpton, a claimed New York-based Baptist minister who ran unsuccessfully for the 2004 democratic presidential nomination, for the first time, the headlines for what turned out in the 1980s as a spokesman for Tawana Brawley, in which, to be wrong, she was raped by four white men.

“It was no marches. There were no demonstrations here. We responded to reports, including President Trump, who called it terrible. So I think that went across all lines of business, given the celebrity of Mr. Smollett,” Sharpton said on Thursday he defended his earlier comments.


Sharpton said he and Harris discuss, the Smollett case during their half-hour lunch break.

“We are talking about criminal justice reform. We talked about economic inequality,” he said.

“You clearly talked about how we deal with the discrepancy in sentencing,” he said of his conversation with Harris. “We also talked a lot about voting rights. She is very concerned about voter suppression.”

However, if the attack occurred for the first time, the senator from California and former attorney General tweeted, “it was an attempted modern lynching. No one should have to fear for their lives because of their sexuality or the color of their skin. We must confront this hatred.”

On Monday, the election campaign in New Hampshire, the candidate of the address of the relocation, the details in the case, was asked. She said, “I think the facts are still unfolding, and, uh, I’m very, uh, concerned, of course, the first, uh, the claim that it can happen over what should have been.”

“And it is something we should all take seriously, if someone, uh, who claims that the type of behavior, but there should be an investigation,” Harris added. “And I think that, once the investigation has completed, then we can all comment, but I’m not going to comment until I know the outcome of the investigation.”

Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker also initially convicted of the perceived attack on Smollett, calling it “the attempt of the modern-day lynching. I am glad that he is safe. For those in Congress who do not respect the sense of urgency to give our Anti-Lynching bill naming Lynch as a federal hate crime I urge you to.”

As he campaigned in New Hampshire last weekend, Booker said: “I’m going to hold myself back, [comment], until all of the information that actually comes from the data sources.”
