The more we learn about the alleged kidnap plot against Gretchen Whitmer, the more corrupt the FBI looks. Instead of uncovering a plot, it appears that they helped plan it from the beginning.
The first few meetings they had, the FBI rented a hotel room and supplied food for the agents and the alleged plotters.
It is not unlikely that they will all go free. This could very well be a classic case of entrapment.
From the beginning, the plot seemed a little curious since they used more informants than there were plotters. There were 12 informants and just six defendants.
This happened just before the election and the plot was used to bludgeon Trump right up until Election Day.
BuzzFeed is reporting that the FBI’s informants were part of the plot from its very beginning.

And since the FBI was in on it from the very beginning, there would be no conspiracy, but for the FBI. It appears that the lawyers for the defendants are trying to use entrapment as a defense, especially for those who were pulled into the plot by the FBI.
It will be interesting to find out the full extent of their involvement in the plot.
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.
Last week, the lawyer for one defendant filed a motion that included texts from an FBI agent to a key informant, the Iraq War veteran, directing him to draw specific people into the conspiracy — potential evidence of entrapment that he said the government “inadvertently disclosed.” He is requesting all texts sent and received by that informant, and other attorneys are now considering motions that accuse the government of intentionally withholding evidence of entrapment.
