One user commented that “The FBI is basically just The KGB”.
I couldn’t agree with that user more. For those of you that missed it, The F.B.I. essentially orchestrated a plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer of Michigan, and drew in 5 unwitting men.
There are currently 5 defendants on trial for the foiled plot, but at least 12 F.B.I. informants orchestrated and were in on the plot as well…
Think about that for a second….there were more than double the amount of perpetrators working for a government agency to bring this plot to fruition.
At any time they could have simply stopped it, or they could have never gone through with it at all, and we likely would not be having this discussion right now…
The defendants are arguing entrapment as the reason why their charges should be dropped, and given the facts of this case who can disagree?
Here’s what we currently know:

The Epoch Times had more on the story:
Fox, Croft, Franks, Harris, and Caserta have maintained throughout the proceedings that the government set them up.
They formalized those arguments in a Dec. 25 motion to dismiss, saying the evidence in the case “demonstrates egregious overreaching by the government’s agents, and by the informants those agents handled.”
“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,” the motion states.

According to NBC News the defense filed this motion:
In the 20-page motion, which was filed Saturday night, defense attorneys allege FBI agents and federal prosecutors invented a conspiracy and entrapped people who could face up to life in prison.
They’re asking U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker to dismiss the conspiracy charge, which would effectively knock down the federal government’s case and other connected charges, according to The Detroit News.
