On October 8, 2020, six men were arrested and charged with conspiring to kidnap MI Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) and turn her over in Wisconsin for trial on the charge of treason. Five of the men are Michigan residents; the sixth is a Delaware resident.
During an interview with Paul Egan of the Detroit Free Press, Governor Whitmer, with no evidence of her vile accusation, attempted to tie the group of men accused of plotting to kidnap her to President Trump and white supremacy.
Shortly after their arrest, information was shared about some of the men caught up in the “kidnapping plot” that revealed they were anti-police, anti-government, anti-Trump radicals, who were more aligned with the Marxist BLM movement and violent domestic terrorist group, Antifa than with Trump.
When the story first broke about the alleged kidnapping plot, Michigan’s tyrannical governor was busy auditioning to become Biden’s vice president while losing support from Michigan residents over her handling of the COVID pandemic that included tyrannical lockdowns and the intentional placement of COVID positive patients into nursing homes.
Much like the January 6th “insurrection,” quite a bit has been revealed about the FBI agents involved in the so-called kidnapping plot since the time of the arrests of the six suspects.
Yahoo News reports – A closer look into the foiled kidnapping by BuzzFeed revealed that some of the informants the government used appeared to play a far greater role in the plot than had been previously reported. In fact, the informants had a hand in nearly every aspect of the twisted machination, including its inception.
New information on the extent of the FBI’s involvement has raised questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy to take down the Democratic governor without their help.
One Wisconsin-based government informant, for example, helped organize a series of cross-country meetings with extremists. Those meetings allegedly laid the groundwork for the multi-part plot. That same informant also paid for hotel rooms and food as an incentive to get people to come, Buzzfeed reported.
Another informant, an Iraq War veteran, was so deeply involved in the militant group that he rose in the ranks to become the second in command. He also encouraged members to work with other suspects and even offered to foot the bill to get people to and from meetings. He is also accused of urging the alleged mastermind of the kidnapping plot to carry it out before laying the trap for him to be arrested.
All but one of the 14 original defendants have pleaded not guilty and deny they were ever involved in the scheme. They contend that they were targeted by the government because of their political views. They also claim the government orchestrated a campaign against them to undermine the Patriot movement, a far-right ideology that pledges allegiance to the Second Amendment and believes the government violated the U.S. Constitution and is therefore illegitimate. They also argue that the government is guilty of criminal conspiracy and possible entrapment.
Today, the Detroit Free Press reported – Defense lawyers say a crooked FBI agent invented the Gretchen Whitmer kidnap plot to steer money into his private side business that he was running the entire time he was choreographing the kidnap scheme.
But he wasn’t the only rogue FBI actor on the case, they say.
Another FBI agent committed perjury in an unrelated case, they say.
And then there’s Richard Trask, the FBI agent who openly rants about his hatred for Trump and Trump supporters, who was removed from the case after he was arrested for assaulting his wife following a swingers party.
On December 19, bodycam footage of Richard Trask, the lead FBI agent in the alleged MI Governor Gretchen Whitmer kidnap plot, was arrested by local sheriffs.
The Wood TV video reveals a frightening July 18th 911 call from FBI Agent Trask’s wife. In the frantic call, Trask’s wife claims her husband bashed her head against the nightstand on their bed several times and then attempted to strangle her after returning from a swinger’s party at a local hotel. Trask’s wife told law enforcement she attended the swinger’s party with him against her will.
In the video, the Sheriff’s Department explains the danger Trask posed to the law enforcement officers as they attempted to locate him after the domestic abuse call from his wife.
During their piece on the arrest of the violent FBI agent, the Wood TV reporter reveals that Richard Trask was posting hateful messages directed at President Trump and his supporters on March 28, 2020, early on in his investigation of the kidnapping plot anti-Trump sup.
It’s important to remember, when the so-called kidnap plot was revealed, the media worked very hard to prove the alleged suspects were Trump supporters. It’s not so far-fetched to believe that Trask hated Trump supporters so much that he would set them up in a fake scheme to make Whitmer look like a victim, while the dishonest media attempted to falsely tie the “extreme right-wing terrorists” to President Trump.
Here’s a screenshot of one of Trask’s Facebook posts:
First, it was the Russian hoax that cast a huge shadow of doubt on the ability of individuals like former FBI Director James Comey and FBI agent Peter Strzok to perform their jobs without targeting their political opponents. Now, the motives of the FBI agents in the Whitmer case and the agents and informants in the January 6th “insurrection” are being questioned. Will Americans ever fully trust the FBI again? Should they?
