FBI’s Whitmer Kidnapping Plot Falls Flat: Jury Acquits Two So-Called Plotters, Mistrials Called

The FBI’s setup of the “Michigan kidnapping plot” just blew up in their face.

Two defendants previously alleged of plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer have been acquitted by a jury, with mistrials being called for the remaining defendants.

“Obviously we’re disappointed in the outcome,” United States Attorney for the Western District of Michigan Andrew Birge said following the jury’s decision.

“We still believe in the jury system, and really, there’s not too much more I can say at this time. I appreciate the time the jury put in.” Birge added that the jury “listened to a lot of evidence,” and “deliberated quite a bit” before reaching their verdicts.

The men, Adam Fox, Barry Croft Jr., Brandon Caserta and Daniel Harris, were arrested in October 2020 after the government claimed they were planning to “kidnap” Whitmer before the 2020 election.

However, public accusations of government entrapment by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) became mainstream when it was revealed that over a dozen FBI informants had been involved in the plot, apparently providing encouragement to the individuals who would later be charged.

Yahoo News reported that “the informants had a hand in nearly every aspect of the twisted machination, including its inception” raising questions as to “whether there would have even been a conspiracy to take down the Democratic governor without their help.”

Ultimately, the FBI was accused of manufacturing the plot, and led to further suspicions about federal involvement in the events of January 6, 2021.

Revolver News, the news outlet that spearheaded journalistic investigation into the FBI’s apparent role in animating the violence that occurred in Washington, D.C. at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, shed light on the prospect that “the whole Michigan Plot itself may have been the result of entrapment of vulnerable, cognitively deficient and mentally unstable individuals by FBI informants.”

“And so we see the strange parallels between the so-called Michigan Plot and the so-called 1/6 Capitol Siege,” argued Revolver News in June 2021.

“In Michigan you had an alleged plot involving the storming of a state capitol, allegedly involving members of one of the very same key militia groups associated with the 1/6 plot,” the outlet wrote, “And we’re supposed to believe that despite massive and now publicly confirmed FBI and government infiltration of the Michigan Plot, there was no similar infiltration for 1/6?”

Joshua Blanchard, a lawyer for one of the defendants, stated the federal government attempted to conjure up a conspiracy by using a network of government informants and undercover agents.

“There was no plan to kidnap the governor, and there was no agreement between these four men,” Blanchard said, adding that “without a plan, the snitches needed to make it look like” there was a plot being formed in order to charge the defendants.

    When I was in college, the FBI’s favorite form of entrapment was dealing drugs. The student is approached by an undercover narc who says he wants to buy some pot. Another undercover narc says he wants to sell some pot. The student gives the buying narc the name of the selling narc–and boom! They arrest the STUDENT for being a pot dealer! Lots of kids became “felons” that way in the 60’s and 70’s.

    The FBI entrapments haven’t changed from SIXTY YEARS AGO (I was in school in the 60’s). Only the bait has changed; the lack of morals and integrity of the FBI hasn’t changed a bit.

    Rule of thumb: NEVER talk to strangers about illegal activities (DAs will plant a “friend” to talk to you while in jail), and NEVER talk to cops, EVER, about ANYTHING; you’re far more likely to talk yourself into prison as a felon who committed a “process crime” than to “clear up a matter” for grateful cops. Cops are never grateful; they only want to boost their arrest stats. Cops are allowed to lie to you, but you not only can’t lie to cops, if you even remember a time or date wrong, they can charge you for lying whether you intentionally lied or not.

    Cops want arrests and the DA wants convictions; neither of them care whether you broke a law or not. If they CAN get you, they WILL get you, so don’t give them the rope to hang you with by running your mouth. Exercise your 5th Amendment right!

      Now we just have to arrest the 51 intelligence agencies heads who signed a letter saying that the laptop was Russian disinformation. They all need to be in jail for the rest of their life for what the current president is doing to the USA.

    Excellent advise from Mr Bruce. And never ever use your cell phone. That makes it a Federal charge. Even if it’s the confidential informant making the ‘suggestions’. I’m not a fan of this type of ‘sting’. It’s weak b.s. It’s like arresting the dumbass with pictures of underage girls, which is awful, but instead let’s find and arrest the sources, the picture TAKERS, the ABUSERS, the RAPISTS,the MULES… What America needs is thorough house cleaning. The fecal stains who are compromised are in strategic positions in government. Hillary owns many of them. China owns many as well. We need uncompromised leaders. The fbi is rife with corruption.

    All fed ‘police’ are unconstitutional in the states.

    FIB is their real name.

    They play word games to police in the states. They police in ‘STATE OF OHIO’, a legal fiction, vs Ohio, the original state. They’re without honor, seditious, deceitful, lawless scum.
