Jussie Smollett: Chicago mayor attacks 'whitewash of justice' as charges dropped

- Smollett: ‘I have been truthful and consistent on every level’

Smollett was earlier this year charged with 16 counts of felony disorderly conduct for allegedly hiring two men to stage a racist, homophobic attack against him in downtown Chicago.
