According to Dhillon:

Only a defense attorney could say that laying out the facts is violating the presumption of innocence. Facts are facts, and the facts speak for themselves. Ultimately, a jury will judge whether he can claim an insanity defense or that it wasn’t him or use the shaggy defense. I don’t know where you can go from this. This is one of the most damning situations I have seen in the hate crime world and I don’t see how it gets better for Jussie Smollett. He’s got great lawyers and I will be interested to see what their defense is going to be.

Hate crime reporting is on the rise but hate crimes against Jewish Americans are up 37% in this country in the last couple of years. Who are the purveyors of hate against Jews? Some of the colleagues of Kamala Harris in the Congress and Senate in her party are purveying that kind of hate. I think the biggest victims here of this particular offense, number one, Chicago, we agree on that, but Trump supporters have been slandered and vilified and this is a tactic in the left has used. One of the reasons why Kamala Harris and many other democrats voted to this immediately is because it was a convenient way to slander and smear half of the United States with an outrageous and despicable life. She was having lunch today with the biggest race hustler in the United States and he’s a perpetrator. I don’t think she’s in any position to give any lectures about hate crimes with the company that she keeps.
