The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) used at least 12 informants to stage the phony kidnapping plot against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer that was announced shortly before last year’s election, according to a Buzzfeed report.
Defendants Barry Croft, Adam Fox, Daniel Harris, Kaleb Franks, and Brandon Caserta have all pleaded not guilty to the ridiculous and promulgated charges. The sixth defendant, Ty Garbin, folded and accepted a plea deal. The news that the so-called kidnapping plot was engineered by feds may ultimately demonstrate the innocence of these individuals in the court of law.
Attorneys for the defendants are alleging that prosecutors are essentially using propaganda against them to bias a jury and secure a conviction. Franks’ lawyer, Scott Graham, is requesting the case currently scheduled for October to be moved from the Western District of Michigan because the “press coverage of (and participation in) this matter has corrupted the potential trial atmosphere to the point that Mr. Franks will be denied a fair trial in Michigan.”
Graham also noted that the media participation in this case, which has included many dishonest politically-motivated headlines, may induce “prejudice in this case based on the extensive, negative, pervasive press coverage of the allegations.”
Big League Politics has reported on how a prominent constitutional sheriff in Michigan called out the bogus nature of these charges shortly after they were announced:
“A constitutional Michigan sheriff recently made some controversial comments about the thwarted raid against Governor Gretchen Whitmer that was promulgated by a confidential informant getting paid thousands of dollars by the feds.
While the plot itself is incredibly dubious and has all the makings of another FBI scam, Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf believes that making a citizens arrest on Whitmer is justified considering the onslaught of intolerable acts she has inflicted upon her constituents.
Leaf said he had dealt with some of the militia members and that they had always been nice and respectful when he had seen them at events.
“I was shocked. I did not see this coming with those guys, but still, we can’t convict them in the news media here. They do have the right to a fair trial,” he said.
Leaf did not throw the militia members under the bus. He said he does not regret sharing a stage with two of them at an anti-Whitmer rally earlier in the year, and he understands their motives considering Whitmer’s heinous abuses of her authority.
“It’s just a charge,” Leaf explained. “And they say it’s a plot to kidnap. You got to remember that, are they trying to kidnap, because a lot of people are angry with the governor, and they want her arrested. So are they trying to arrest or was it a kidnap attempt?” Leaf asked.
“You can still in Michigan, if it’s a felony, you can make a felony arrest,” Leaf continued, citing Michigan state law to justify his point.
“And it doesn’t say if you’re in elected office that you’re exempt from that arrest. So, I have to look at it from that angle, and I’m hoping that’s more of what it is. As a matter of fact, these guys are innocent until proven guilty so I’m not even sure if they had any part of it,” he added.”
Once again, the feds have busted their own plot and are using their false flag to demonize patriots and justify their own massive budgets. The deep state is out of control and has emerged as an existential threat to American freedom.
