According to a Buzzfeed report on Tuesday, new court filings from one of the defendants in the Governor Whitmer kidnapping case confirm that the FBI used at least a dozen undercover agents in the operation that resulted in the arrest of 6 individuals for conspiracy to kidnap the Governor, and more importantly, this is going to change the entire trajectory of their defense. This is hugely important because it means that the FBI’s tactics will have to be fully disclosed and directly challenged in open court. The government will now have to defend the “insane conspiracy theory” that has make right wing voices like Tucker Carlson, the subject of ridicule from Radical Axis pundits and politicians.
Right wing commentators, myself included, have been fixated on the 1/6 “Insurrection” case recently; more specifically what appears to be FBI overreach pointed out in a bombshell report by Revolver News on June 14 and picked up by Tucker Carlson the very next day. The article gave a detailed outline of similarities between the 1/6 case and this case in Michigan – right down to the special-agent-in-charge. I’ve discussed that issue (sometimes at great length) on three previous blog posts (summarized here) and as the mainstream media insists on mocking us, the evidence continues to pile up. Buzzfeed claims,
“Taken together, the new court papers offered a glimpse of the evolving defense strategies in the case, with several attorneys saying that they plan to argue that the FBI “induced or persuaded” the men to go along with the scheme.”Buzzfeed, The FBI Allegedly Used At Least 12 Informants In The Michigan Kidnapping Case, 07/12/2021
I have not had an opportunity to independently inspect the court filings myself yet (I will update this post as soon as I do) but if the Buzzfeed report is correct in surmising that the defendants are going to raise entrapment as a primary defense strategy, then that’s the real headline here. This means the FBI will be forced to publicly disclose details about that operation; which appear to be mirror images of the 1/6 case. If the FBI’s tactics in Michigan are found by the court to have been unlawful, the DOJ’s entire “Insurrection” case goes into an instant death spiral. This will become, in effect, a trial of the Administration’s handling of the “Insurrection Case.” …It’ll be an absolute circus!
PREDICTION: The government takes a flop in Michigan. I’m betting they cut a very favorable deal (out of “nowhere”) for the Michigan defendants and avoid having to litigate their strategy and tactics altogether. They will cut off the proverbial “foot,” to save the leg. The mainstream media will let the “right wing terrorists” from Michigan walk away with bizarrely light sentences, without making so much as a peep.. they’ll just pretend it didn’t happen. #Watch
