Wait, do you mean the government conspired to set people up and make it look like those men did something they didn't? What?
The entrapment tactics that the feds used in the war on terror and in this case was indeed perfected in the infamous WAR ON DRUGS. So pls don't stop short I know because they entrapment me.
so time to dismantle git'mo.
The FBI is the biggest threat to the US and The US Constitution. As is the CIA, NSA, CDC, EPA, IRS …They all need be dissolved and the people employed prosecuted for treason
I am confused. Did the jury make factual findings the defendants were entrapped by the government and that the Governor was in no danger? How does that square with two defendants still subjected to prosecution?
Also juries acquit if they believe there exists any reasonable doubt -no matter how tenuous -that defendants are guilty. For instance, it could be that the jury found it highly probable all defendants committed crimes, but acquitted because a reasonable doubt existed. How then can you say with such certitude that this was a crime created by FBI agents encouraging people to kidnap the Governor?
And was this plot uncovered by FBI “agents” or by FBI “informants.” There is a difference.
Maybe you have facts you did not express in your expose, but if not, you’d be better served by basing things on actual facts rather than creating a conspiracy scenario, which you are always contending the mainstream media does. Otherwise, you are just like them.
This is exactly what Democrats and Liberals do. They accuse others of exactly what they are doing.
Hillary Clinton anyone.
Who knew jack Murphy was a defendant?
Does anyone with a braincell think this didn't happen on Jan 6th…the FBI was in on this kidnap BS and was totally in on the Jan 6th so called insurrection …the FBI has to be gotten rid of and a new organization formed from the ground up because the FBI as we know it now is as corrupt as the old KGB.
I wish I could read sign language, because I wanna know what that lady behind Gov Whitmer was REALLY saying. Those facial expressions lead me to believe it had nothing to do with what the gov was saying, lol.
Entrapment! Someone needs to try and get this right! Maybe they may have success with subliminal messages!
I've known the FBI and other Federal law "enforcement" agencies were violent dangerous thugs ever since Waco. I'm glad others are starting to realize this too
This is what happens when conservatives "Back The Blue" reflexively. These are the people that are going to be sent to kick in your "white supremacist" front door and shoot you, unarmed, on the spot because they "feared for their safety". And there will be no BLM-type organization to protest your execution or demand that justice be done.
Always remember that Law Enforcement (esp. the Feds) is recruited, selected, and hired by politicians and the Elite to protect themselves from you. Not the other way around. Ditto with appointed judges.
The CIA deployed the same entrapment practices in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is an import from the foreign war on terror. The CIA is a rubbish organization actively working against the interests of the citizens of the USA.
Absolutely disgusting and humiliating the FBI needs to be overhauled altogether they are corrupt and they don’t do what they are supposed to be doing everything from the situation like this to what happened with the Trump campaign and the FISA warrants to not even knowing or doing anything about the laws that were broken on Hunter Biden‘s laptop the man was doing drugs and prostitution there’s video footage of it and he’s not even arrested what a farce FBI. If I was to be as bad at my job as they aren’t theirs I’d be fired how do they get to keep their jobs wanna scam. Democrat liberal jackboots that’s what the FBI is now let’s be honest.
It's good see corruption fail. But do I need to say!, … If these people were black this wouldn't happen. They would have found a way to make the lie 🤥 stick!
Both set up and staged….Treason
No matter how much the democrats and GOP yry to get at each other, neither can, because the FBI comes in between. It is the FBI that is the deep state.
Can the FBI personel involved in this hoax be tried for wasting FBI time & resources, & if not, why not ?
So, the fbi is just an unfunny joke.
"over zealous law enforcement" is a euphemism for criminal behavior by law enforcement.
And while the FBI was setting up these half dozen yokels in Michigan ,they let the New York subway shooter ,who had 'been on their radar' as they say, slip away and actually commit a terrorist act. Way to go guys….
Man alll this election time info getting switched up. Too late now.
If the FBI tells you there is a plot to kidnapp you, you would take it serious as well Robbie, if someone yells at you during starbucks visit, you would loose your mind
She is so right that Republicans should not manufacture fear or they will wind up losing people who believe they are getting more fiction than fact. Provide evidence along with your statements or you will lose you best supporters.
Liberals will believe anything.
So wouldn't that make Governor Whitmer their Criminal
and the same thing was done for Jan 6th
Sounds about white 🤔
We need to flush down the entire govt and start over
It's a shame the FBI plotted to kidnap Gov. Whitler. She really deserves a good tarring and feathering; possibly a defenestration…
FBI hoaxes are finally getting exposed. One more federal agency that needs radical paring and reform of the leadership.
