Remember the drama over a supposed kidnapping plot involving Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer months ago?
Well, now it looks like the FBI might have had something to do with it.
In October 2020, the Department of Justice announced that it had charged six men involved in an alleged plot to kidnap Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Five of the defendants have pleaded not guilty and have been held without bail since their arrests. According to a federal court filing made by one of the defendants on Monday – 9 months later – it was revealed that the FBI had employed at least 12 undercover informants to infiltrate militia groups involved in the alleged kidnapping conspiracyNational File
This begs a few questions.
What did the FBI know?
When did they know it?
Why was this information kept secret for 9 months?
The court filings shine some light on this, and it’s not looking good for the FBI.
However, the Monday court filings appear to highlight new defense strategies for the defendants, as their lawyers say that the FBI “induced or persuaded” them to go along with the alleged plan to kidnap the Governor, which originally started out as a plan to “storm the Capitol building” in Lansing, Michigan according to the DOJ.National File
It sounds like the FBI wanted these people to attempt to kidnap the Governor.
Of course, undercover operations would never be fully disclosed to the public so soon after their occurrence, and so far the FBI is keeping quiet.
According to an attorney for Franks, the government has shared ID numbers linked to 12 confidential informants but, with one exception, has not provided background on how they were recruited, what payments they may have received from the FBI, where they are based, or what their names are,”National File
Where this all takes a more sinister turn is the potential connections this has to the Capitol protests in Washington D.C.
Half of the defendants from both cases combined were members of the Wolverine Watchmen, a group associated with the Three Percenters – one of the same militia groups blamed for storming of the Capitol building in Washington DC on January 6, as was pointed out by Revolver News: “And, as the cherry on top, what if we told you that the director of the Detroit FBI Field Office, who oversaw the infiltration operation of the Michigan Plot, was subsequently granted a highly coincidental promotion to the D.C. office, where he is now the lead FBI agent for all 1/6 cases?”National File
There’s clearly something going on here that we’re not privy to.
We can’t make any definitive statements about what any of this means, but simply connecting the dots reveals some alarming patterns, as Revolver News discovered.
If it weren’t for independent media sources, we’d never know any of this.
That’s why it’s so important to read beyond the mainstream media, because they simply don’t report what they don’t want you to see.
