Having all the FBI informants alarmed and involved made the case trigger the ‘something’s wrong here’ alarm. Just as it was the case scenario with the January 6th attack.
Now, the defense lawyers are saying the whole thing was basically an “entrapment setup” created by the feds. The lawyers are demanding text messages and audio recordings from FBI agents and paid informants entered as evidence.
“Five men charged in the 2020 plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer are asking a federal judge to allow evidence at trial they believe shows entrapment by FBI agents,” MI Live reported.
“Attorneys for Adam Fox, Barry Croft Jr., Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta filed a motion Friday, Dec. 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan.
The evidence involves recorded audio and texts involving conversations that confidential informants had with the men. There are also recordings between FBI agents and confidential informants.
According to the motion, the “out-of-court” statements found in the recordings and texts will help the men prove “they never conspired to kidnap Governor Whitmer and, in the alternative, they were entrapped.”
Attorneys for the men said they discovered the various recordings while going through materials provided by the government as they prepare for trial.”
“Eventually, the relationship between this (informant) and his handlers became so close that they sat together while the (informant) called Adam Fox and, with agents whispering in his ear, the (informant) tried to prod Fox into action,” defense attorneys wrote in the motion. “The informants’ relationships with the agents were far from ‘tenuous.’”
