Northwestern Hospital Firings After Smollett Record Access

The Chicago PD says there's been a ton of "inaccurate" information surfacing in the media surrounding Smollett's case and now, they're trying to crack down on who the culprit is.

A rep for the Chicago PD told TMZ the Chief Of Detectives opened an investigation due to concerns surrounding the police department was leaking information to the public.

This news comes on the heels of another investigation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital where dozens of workers may have been terminated for "improperly reviewing the medical records" of the Empire actor, just so they could sneak a peak at his medical chart.

According to one nurse who was sacked following the incident, she never accessed Smollett's records, but merely scrolled past them as she was searching for another patient. The unidentified nurse "was fired last week and believes many other nurses and staffers were fired for the same reason".

U.S. trade deficit grows by more than $100 billion under Trump
In a 2016 campaign speech in Pennsylvania, Trump called the trade deficit a "politician-made disaster" and promised swift change. Steel- and aluminum-consuming businesses have been hit particularly hard by the higher prices created by tariffs.

Smollett claimed he was the victim of a hate crime outside his Chicago apartment, in January telling police officers two white men beat him up and tied a noose around his neck while yelling homophobic and racial slurs. TMZ was first to report the news.

She said she wasn't asked any questions and never had a chance to offer an explanation.

Smollett was arrested on February 21 after being charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report in which he claimed he was the victim of a hate crime. The alleged attackers, brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, were arrested and later released as they were said to be cooperating with police. The judge granted a $100,000 bail, and Smollett paid a $10,000 bond. "The check was written to Abel on January 23, 2019, six days before the 'attack.' The memo line reads, '5 week Nutrition/Workout program Don't Go.'" "Don't Go" is a song for a music video where he would appear shirtless.

Smollett, who pleaded not guilty, faces up to three years in prison if convicted.
