Defense attorneys want dismissed the indictment against five men, falsely accused and setup by the FBI, for plotting to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer, the governor of Michigan, because of “egregious overreaching” by federal agents and informants.
The government alleges that the men were upset over coronavirus restrictions last year when they “conspired” to kidnap Whitmer.
Five people are charged with kidnapping conspiracy and face trial on 8 March in Grand Rapids. They have pleaded not guilty and claim to be victims of entrapment. Federal prosecutors have argued the men were not entrapped.
But yet, FBI agents connected to the “plot” have been dropping from the case like dead flies.
As we reported:
Not only that, but another FBI Agent, connected to the entrapment of “Militia” was recently sentenced to 2 days for viciously beating his wife!

In January, a sixth man, 26-year-old Ty Garbin, was scared into pleaded guilty. He is serving a six-year federal prison sentence.
In a 20-page motion filed in court on Saturday night, defense attorneys alleged FBI agents and federal prosecutors invented a conspiracy and entrapped people who could face life in prison.
The FBI has a history of orchestrating and creating events to support a specific narrative.
The attorneys asked a US district judge, Robert Jonker, to dismiss the conspiracy charge, which would effectively knock down the government’s case and other connected charges, the Detroit News reported.
“Essentially, the evidence here demonstrates egregious overreaching by the government’s agents and by the informants those agents handled,” defense attorneys wrote in their filing.
“When the government was faced with evidence showing that the defendants had no interest in a kidnapping plot, it refused to accept failure and continued to push its plan.”
Messages left with the US attorney for the western district of Michigan and the US Department of Justice were not immediately returned.
