The FBI interfered in the 2020 election by concocting the Whitmer kidnap hoax

ICYMI: The Entire Gretchen Whitmer “Kidnapping” Case Was Exposed As A Fraud – A Full Recap

Just weeks before the 2020 election, the FBI announced that it had thwarted an attempt by rightwing terrorists to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer, the governor of Michigan. At the time, Whitmer was taking intense criticism for her draconian handling of the COVID pandemic. The FBI arrested Daniel Harris, Brandon Caserta, Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Kaleb Franks, and Ty Garbin. The case was a propaganda bonanza for the left in general, and Whitmer in particular – who blamed the inflammatory language of Donald Trump for inspiring the would-be kidnappers. Well, the trial has just ended, and it didn’t go quite the way the FBI had predicted. In fact, it completely blew up the MSM narrative.

When the arrests were made in 2020, we were told by the MSM that the plot involved a group of violent militia members, who were upset about Whitmer’s pandemic measures – which included restrictions on travel and assembly. We were assured that the incendiary language of political conservatives inspired the kidnappers. It was reported that the group intended to use firearms and explosives to abduct Whitmer from her lake home and sneak her out of the state. Fortunately, the FBI thwarted the attempt. It was billed as a shining example of the world’s preeminent law enforcement agency in action.

Whitmer, Pelosi, and Schumer all ran to the microphones on the eve of the election to condemn the rhetoric of conservatives. Joe Biden phoned it in from his basement. It was a perfect media storm, just a month before the election.But then after the election, the narrative began to unravel. The lead FBI agent, Richard Trask, who signed the charging documents under oath, was fired from the FBI. He had been arrested for assaulting his wife after a drunken swinger’s party.

A few months later, two more agents were removed from the witness list. Special Agent Jayson Chambers was removed from the case because it was discovered that he was attempting to profit from the case. He was launching a private security firm, which would benefit from his work on the Whitmer case.

Special Agent Henrik Impola was also removed from the case after he had been accused of perjuring himself on another case. Apparently, the FBI found it easier to remove him than defend him.

Problems with the paid informants also began to surface. Stephen Robeson was dropped from the witness list because he had since been charged with committing additional crimes during the investigation.

Another informant, Dan Chappel, did testify. However, it was learned that rather than being a passive observer, he had actually worked to recruit participants for the conspiracy, planned many of the group’s activities, and was paid over $60,000 by the FBI for his efforts. He also sent Adam Fox over 1,000 texts between June and October to keep him engaged in the group’s activities. He was egging him on. Doesn’t the left refer to that as inciting violence? Or is it only incitement if done by Trump supporters?

Kaleb Franks and Ty Garbin cut deals and plead guilty to lesser charges to avoid trial. The cases for Daniel Harris, Brandon Caserta, Adam Fox, and Barry Croft, Jr. all went to trial. All four were represented by public defenders, as they lacked the means to hire private attorneys.The judge in the case, Chief U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker, decided to give the prosecution an assist. He refused to let the defense question any FBI agents about past professional transgressions, apparently because the integrity of the FBI is beyond reproach – except when it isn’t.

Jonker also denied the defense’s request to present FBI texts with, and recordings of the defendants that would have put the charges against the defendants in context – though he did allow the FBI to present their preferred assortment of texts and recordings. He was concerned that additional material would be hearsay and confusing to the jurors. We can’t allow the jurors to be confused while they’re convicting defendants after all
