(Washington Examiner) Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., says she will be "disappointed" if "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett is found to have staged an attack on himself.
Whereas on the day Smollett filed a police report Waters was quick to rise to the defense of her "friend," on Thursday the congresswoman said she is now "waiting for the final results" to pass final judgment.
“I don’t think we can, at this point, make sense of it,” Waters told Variety. “There's still some questions that we have, some answers that have to be given. He’s a friend. He was at my office. We marched in the Pride Parade together, he introduced me at 'Black Girls Rock,' and so, I believed him, when I heard about it.”
