Chicago police have released around 70 hours of video footage and hundreds of files from the investigation into Smollett's alleged attack earlier this year. Some of the video shows him with a white rope looped around his neck, which he said his alleged attackers had placed on him. Smollett was accused of staging the racist and homophobic attack, but those charges were eventually dropped after he made a deal with prosecutors.        A drug maker will pay 85-million-dollars in a settlement over the opioid crisis in Oklahoma.
