Recall that it is now widely believed that the actor perpetrated the hate attack himself.

So the footage that was released on Monday included a clip from a body camera that showed Smollett talking to police shortly after they were called to his residence this past January.

From the clip, Smollett (whose face is blurred) is seen talking to the police after they were led into his apartment by his manager, Frank Gaston. He has a rope around his neck, which he says was placed there by those who jumped him.

Asked if he wants to take it off his neck, he says he does but adds that he “just wanted you all to see it.” He also says “There’s bleach on me, they poured bleach on me.”

And when he’s informed by the police that they’re recording him, Smollett says “I don’t want to be filmed.” The officers then shut off their cameras.

This comes mere days after a judge ordered that special counsel be appointed to take another look at the case. The option to file new charges against Smollett is still open.
