"The Five" seemed to be surprised by a new video in the case of Jussie Smollett, published by the Chicago Police Department. It shows the entertainer in a noose and his suspected attackers in hazmat suits in a taxi.
"Will we ever drive to find out the truth?" Co-host Juan Williams asked his co-moderators to process the latest material from the case.
"We know the truth, Juan, he staged the attack," co-host Jesse Watters replied.
Chicago The police released hundreds of files and nearly 70 hours of video footage from the investigation Monday, including shots of Smollett with a blurry face and a white rope around the neck of his assailant's investigator.
] YUSSIE SMOLLETT'S ALLEGED HATE CRIMINALITY: A TIME OF EVENTS
When one of the policemen asked Smollett if he wanted to pull the rope from his neck, the 37-year-old actor did so while he said I just wanted you to see it all.
The moderator of "Watters & # 39; World" then jokingly suggested that the actor was trying a little too much with the alleged attack.
"You have insulted MAGA, you have a sling, you have bleach and you have a blow. Choose a. I'm crazy about the hate crime, "said Watters.
" It's nonsensical. It's like escaping a kidnapping and holding the ropes around your wrists to show the cops you've tied. No, that makes no sense at all. "

Fox Business Kennedy criticized Smollett for extending the controversy by not addressing her.
] "But if he had just come out and said something, all this would have disappeared. The FBI and Chicago P.D. and even retired state judges would not sit and walk there, that's not right, and we can not make the world think we need our justice in Chicago and Illinois this way, "Kennedy said.
