The FBI used at least 12 confidential informants to entrap six patsies in a manufactured kidnapping plot that was used to sway the October 2020 election. Buzzfeed News reported that the FBI “had a hand in nearly every aspect” of the alleged plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer. This raises doubt that there would have been a conspiracy without the FBI to engineer it. The alleged “mastermind,” Adam Fox, was a homeless drunkard with mental problems who was temporarily given shelter in a friend’s shop basement. Several of the defendants plan to officially accuse the government of entrapment, arguing that the FBI assembled the key plotters, encouraged the group’s anti-government feelings, and even gave its members military-style training. The FBI appears to have once again entrapped struggling homeless, low IQ people with mental problems for political gain, which has been their pattern for over a decade.

Last March, the FBI burned one of their own informants, Stephan Robeson, by indicting him on a gun charge. Robeson is accused of being the driving force behind the alleged kidnapping plot. In a separate incident, one of the lead FBI agents in the case, Richard J. Trask, was charged in state court in Michigan with assault with intent to do great bodily harm to his wife. He allegedly smashed her head against a nightstand several times and tried to choke her after an argument following their attendance at a swingers party. -GEG

FBI informants “had a hand in nearly every aspect” of the alleged plot to kidnap Gov Gretchen Whitmer, “starting with its inception,” according to a new report from BuzzFeed News.

From BuzzFeed News, “Watching the Watchmen”:

In the inky darkness of a late summer night last September, three cars filled with armed men began circling Birch Lake in northern Michigan, looking for ways to approach Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s three-bedroom vacation cottage, subdue her — using a stun gun if necessary — and drag her away.

One vehicle stopped to check out a boat launch while a second searched in vain for the right house in the thick woods ringing the lake. The third car ran countersurveillance, using night vision goggles to look out for cops and handheld radios to communicate with the others.

Earlier, they had scoped out a bridge over the Elk River, just a few miles away, scrambling down under the span to figure out where plastic explosives would need to be placed to blow it sky-high. That would slow police response, giving the men time to escape with the governor — who had infuriated them by imposing COVID lockdowns, among other outrages — and either take her to Lake Michigan, where they could abandon her on a boat, or whisk her to Wisconsin, where she would be tried as a “tyrant.”

“Everybody down with what’s going on?” an Iraq War veteran in the group demanded to know when they ended their recon mission, well past midnight, at a campsite where they were all staying.

“If you’re not down with the thought of kidnapping,” someone else replied, “don’t sit here.”

The men planned for all kinds of obstacles, but there was one they didn’t anticipate: The FBI had been listening in all along.

For six months, the Iraq War vet had been wearing a wire, gathering hundreds of hours of recordings. He wasn’t the only one. A biker who had traveled from Wisconsin to join the group was another informant. The man who’d advised them on where to put the explosives — and offered to get them as much as the task would require — was an undercover FBI agent. So was a man in one of the other cars who said little and went by the name Mark.

Just over three weeks later, federal and state agents swooped in and arrested more than a dozen men accused of participating in what a federal prosecutor called a “deeply disturbing” criminal conspiracy hatched over months in secret meetings, on encrypted chats, and in paramilitary-style training exercises. Seven of the men who had driven to Birch Lake that night would end up in jail.

[…] The government has documented at least 12 confidential informants who assisted the sprawling investigation. […]

An examination of the case by BuzzFeed News also reveals that some of those informants, acting under the direction of the FBI, played a far larger role than has previously been reported. Working in secret, they did more than just passively observe and report on the actions of the suspects. Instead, they had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. The extent of their involvement raises questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy without them.

A longtime government informant from Wisconsin, for example, helped organize a series of meetings around the country where many of the alleged plotters first met one another and the earliest notions of a plan took root, some of those people say. The Wisconsin informant even paid for some hotel rooms and food as an incentive to get people to come.

The Iraq War vet, for his part, became so deeply enmeshed in a Michigan militant group that he rose to become its second-in-command, encouraging members to collaborate with other potential suspects and paying for their transportation to meetings. He prodded the alleged mastermind of the kidnapping plot to advance his plan, then baited the trap that led to the arrest.

The alleged “mastermind,” Adam Fox, was a homeless drunkard with mental problems who was temporarily given shelter in a friend’s shop basement.
