Two law enforcement officials confirmed to ABC-7 in Chicago that the FBI is looking into the circumstances surrounding the bizarre dismissal of felony charges against "Empire" star Jussie Smollett.

Chicago police seized the headlines when they charged the star with filing false police reports over an attack he allegedly suffered at the hands of supporters of President Donald Trump.

Then the public was stunned by the news that all charges were dropped in exchange for forfeiture of a $10,000 bond payment and community service.

Smollett maintained his claims of innocence after he was released by the police.

Reporter Rob Elgas of ABC-7 emphasized that the FBI was not officially investigating the matter, but was conducting a "review" or "inquiry."

Other suspicions were raised when it was discovered that a former Obama aide had contacted State Attorney Kim Foxx on behalf of the Smollett family over their concerns about how the Chicago police were conducting their investigation.

Foxx later recused herself from the case, and the president of a Chicago Police union called for an investigation into whether she interfered inappropriately with the case.

Here's the latest in the Smollett investigation:
