Jussie Smollett: 'I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one'

Following news that the charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped, the "Empire" actor's attorney, Patricia Brown Holmes, told a press conference Tuesday there was "no deal" and the "state dismissed the charges."

When then asked by a reporter if she had anything to say to the Chicago Police Department, Holmes responded: "We have nothing to say to the police department except to investigate charges and not try their cases in the press but to allow matters to be investigated."

In a stunning reversal Tuesday morning, the Cook County State's Attorney’s Office dropped all the charges against Smollett, 36, in an alleged hate crime hoax.
