In October 2020, the FBI announced during a press conference that it thwarted a plot by a so-called “right-wing militia” to kidnap and kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and overthrow the state government.
We now know the FBI used at least 12 informants out of 16 defendants) in the Michigan Whitmer kidnapping case and hatched the plot. And we know that the FBI told at least one informant to lie to frame the defendants in the case.
The FBI informants-agents actually helped hatch the kidnapping plot which means there would be no conspiracy case without the FBI. The FBI even paid for it.
One FBI informant organized all the meetings early on and paid for hotel rooms and food to entice the patsies.
