Leftist agitator and race-baiting Democratic party hack Al Sharpton has weighed in on the Jussie Smollett controversy and what he had to say surprised everyone.

Sharpton is now saying that Smollett should face maximum consequences if he is found to have faked his own attack, Mediaite reports.

Rev. Al Sharpton addressed news that the alleged assault against actor Jussie Smollett appears to not be how it was originally reported by TMZ last month.

The star of the television program Empire has claimed that he was the victim of a hate crime that included attackers who put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him all while wearing red hats saying MAGA. But over the weekend Chicago police revealed that not only has that story fallen apart, but strongly suggested that Smollett had engineered the attack as a hoax and the two attackers were two Nigerian brothers paid by the actor to stage the attack.

When initial reports broke, Sharpton claimed “we should come with all that we can come within law enforcement to find out what happened and the guilty should suffer the maximum.” Now that the story appears to be very different, Sharpton “still maintain(s) that.” And if it is found that Smollett and these gentlemen did in some way perpetrate something that is not true, they ought to “face accountability to the maximum.”

Partial transcript:

Should Jussie Smollett go to jail if found guilty of staging his own attack?

In the last 48 hours a lot has been said about the ongoing investigation in to the alleged assault against actor Jussie Smollett. Late last month in Chicago. Lawyers for Smollett remain adamant that their client was a victim of a hate crime centering on his race and sexual orientation amid some reports that Smollett may have colluded with two former persons of interest to stage the alleged attack.

I among many others when hearing of the report said that the reports were horrific and that we should come with all that we can come with in law enforcement to find out what happened and the guilty should suffer the maximum.

I still maintain that. And if it is found that Smollett and these gentlemen did in some way perpetrate something that is not true, they ought to face accountability to the maximum.

But let’s not act like this is some left wing hoax that some are saying on social media.

President Trump called this horrible and he is certainly not a left winger. And many across the spectrum because of Smollett’s history as an actor and an activist stood and said this needs to be looked into.

None of us talked directly with him. We were alarmed at what was reported. Donald Trump Jr. Started tweeting yesterday, well, they just did this to discredit those that wear MAGA hats.

Jussie Smollett went on Good Morning America, Don Jr., and said it didn’t happen. So people who were told that were being misled. Let us get to the bottom of it and let justice be done no matter who is right or wrong. We cannot not get to the truth here.

No one expected this from professional race-baiter Al Sharpton!
