Kamala Harris Releases Statement on Jussie Smollett Charges; Chicago Police Supt. Alerts Media About Real Victims

2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris says she is ‘sad, frustrated and disappointed’ by reports about ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett’s alleged bias attack hoax; reaction from the ‘Special Report’ All-Star panel.

“Like most of you, I’ve seen the reports about Jussie Smollett, and I’m sad, frustrated, and disappointed. When anyone makes false claims to police, it not only diverse resources away from serious investigation but it makes it more difficult for other victims of crime to come forward. At the same time, we must speak the truth: hate crimes are on the rise in America… Part of the tragedy of the situation is that it distracts from the truth, and has been seized by some who would like to dismiss and downplay the very real problems that we must address. We should not allow that. I will always condemn racism and homophobia. We must always confront hate directly, and we must always seek justice.”

— Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris
