The Chicago Police Department is trying to figure out who within their department leaked critical case information to the press during the Jussie Smollett investigation, ABC News reports.

"I would like to point out that a lot of the information out there was inaccurate and there were numerous agencies involved in this investigation", said Sergeant Rocco Alioto with the Chicago PD Office of Communications.

According to CBS Chicago, a nurse, who remains anonymous, said that she was sacked from Northwestern Memorial Hospital last Tuesday for simply scrolling past the actor's chart without actually accessing it.

On Jan. 29, Smollett arrived at Northwestern and claimed he was attacked by two men while walking home from a Subway around 2 a.m.

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.

One of the unnamed nurses who was sacked, claims to CBS Chicago that she never herself even accessed Smollett's chart. The actor, who is black and gay, said the masked men beat him, made derogatory comments and yelled, "This is MAGA country" - an apparent reference to President Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again" - before fleeing.

By Feb. 21, he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false report. Smollett was then arrested and released on a $100,000 bond.

According to the Chicago Police Department, Smollett paid Abimbola "Abel" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo by check for a "phony attack" in order to take "advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career". Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson held a press conference on February 21 calling Smollett's conduct "despicable".

The day Smollett was at the hospital, his arrival and the alleged attack were all over the news, the worker said. The brothers also reportedly told the Grand Jury they were paid for the gym sessions - NOT for the "attack".

The actor continues to maintain that he is innocent.
