AP Photo/Evan Vucci In news that’s flying below the radar a bit, more evidence of just how corrupt and compromised the FBI has become emerged today.
You may recall the much-ballyhooed plot to supposedly kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer last year. Arrests were made in October of 2020, with the claim being that the FBI had stopped the kidnapping plot as well as a plan to overthrow the government.

As to whether this qualifies as entrapment, I recognize that’s a complicated legal question and won’t attempt to opine on the matter, but man, does this entire thing feel dirty.
Obviously, further speculation will lead to questions about the motivations of the FBI to do what they did. At the time, news of the plot represented a political boon for Whitmer and her COVID policies as well as Democrats at large who wanted to […]
