Nancy Pelosi hoped she could quietly sweep one of her worst mistakes under the rug.
But that plan blew up in her face.
Pelosi got caught red handed covering up this huge scandal.
Pelosi, fake news media outlets, celebrities, and Democrat Presidential candidates all jumped on the claims made by homosexual “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.
Smollett claimed a roving band of blood-thirsty Trump supporters jumped him at 2AM on a Chicago street.
The actor told police his white, male attackers hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, then hung a noose around his neck and dumped bleach onto his skin.
The left loves stories like this.
The fake news uses them to claim Trump is inciting a climate of hate in America and that the President’s election and policies are illegitimate because all of his supporters are Nazis.
But many Americans took a skeptical posture toward this story.
Too many of these supposed “hate crimes” have ended up being left-wing hoaxes.
When the story sounds too good to be true—it probably is.
Police eventually took two suspects into custody.
However, they were not white supremacist Trump supporters at all.
They were two Nigerian brothers who worked on “Empire.”
And that’s when the story took an all too predictable turn.
Police released the brothers without arresting them.
That’s because the brothers told police that Smollett paid each of them $3,500 dollars to help him stage the attack.
They described how they rehearsed the attack, and police also found the receipt from the store where they purchased the rope that was used as the “noose.”
Smollett hired Michael Cohen’s criminal defense attorney and refused to speak with police.
Instead, he spoke through a statement released by his lawyers.
“As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying,” the statement read.
Liberals were mortified.
Nancy Pelosi tried to quietly delete the tweet she had posted in support of Smollett when he first reported the attack.
The Daily Caller captured a screenshot of the now-deleted tweet.
Now the only one who may end up facing charges is Smollett for filing a false police report.
This incident is a major embarrassment for Democrats and their allies in the fake news media.
Some Democrats – like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker – are stalling for time.
After first calling the attack a “modern day lynching,” Harris now wants to wait for all the facts.
But Pelosi knows better.
Pelosi clearly sees where this story is headed.
So she wants to erase any evidence that she jumped to false conclusions and promoted a lie.
Unfortunately for Pelosi, the internet is forever.
