Jussie Smollett Hires Michael Cohen’s High-Powered Criminal Defense Lawyer Michael Monico

As the investigation surrounding his alleged attack unfolds, Jussie Smollett has hired defense attorney Michael Monico — the same high-powered defense attorney that represented Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

It’s unclear at what point Monico began representing Jussie, but the news was confirmed to a variety of news outlets this evening.

As reported earlier today, after two days of questioning, the Chicago Police Department confirmed it has released two suspects in the Jussie Smollett case without filing charges due to ‘new evidence’ resulting from the interrogations.

Police no longer consider the men to be suspects.
