One of the many black eyes the FBI has received recently centered around the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
As more and more details came out regarding the plot, it was found that the FBI had informants buried deep inside the group planning the attack.
Those details are now being expanded upon… and attorneys for the defense are claiming the FBI set up the entire plot.
They Did It
The five men on trial were/are members of the Three Percenters and the Wolverine Watchmen anti-government militia groups.
The suspects have always maintained that they had no interest.
From the outset, they had stated that the FBI plant had been encouraging them to carry out the kidnapping.
Now, more details are coming out regarding just how much the FBI had egged the men on to conduct the kidnapping.
The attorneys for the defense stated, “The government wouldn’t drop the idea, and the CHSs [confidential human sources] continued to broach plans, despite official government admonitions barring the suggestion of such plans.
“The CHSs’ handlers pulled the puppet strings the entire time.”
The case against the men has taken several hits already.
Among them, FBI agent Richard Trask having been charged with domestic violence.
He was also the agent who had anti-Trump posts on his social media.
Five of the six men remain on trial.
One defendant, Ty Garbin, has already pleaded guilty, receiving a six-year sentence.
If the other men are found guilty, they could face up to life in prison.
