The Federal Bureau of Investigation isn’t turning a blind eye to Jussie Smollett‘s publicized Chicago attack. New reports claim the government agency is now taking action.

According to reports, the FBI and popular “Empire” TV show executives are now working together to find Jussie’s attackers.

Sources on set tell us a private security company was hired by the show and met with FBI agents to establish a protocol for inspecting all incoming mail. We’re told the team wears gloves so the evidence in question is not contaminated. The security team has 2 functions … to flag threatening, incoming mail and alert the FBI, and to possibly link new items to the letter Jussie already received, containing homophobic and racists epithets along with an image of a noose.

Last week, Jussie’s sister publicly spoke out and released a family statement on his attack.

During a recent press conference, President Donald Trump called the assault nothing less than horrible.

On Thursday, the President of the United States was asked about the homophobic, racist attack against Smollett by a reporter in the Oval Office. “That, I can tell you, is horrible,” Trump said. “I’ve seen it, last night. I think that’s horrible. It doesn’t get worse as far as I’m concerned.” (E! News)

Recently, comedian Mike Epps invited Jussie’s attackers to run up on him next month.
