You may recall that shortly before the 2020 election, the FBI supposedly foiled a plot by militia members to kidnap and possibly even kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
This week, the government’s case against the defendants crumbled completely.
Two of the defendants were found not guilty and the jury deadlocked on the others.
This is such an embarrassment for the FBI and Whitmer.
FOX News reports:
Michigan Gov. Whitmer kidnapping plot: 2 men acquitted, jury deadlocked on 2 others
Two of four men were acquitted Friday in a conspiracy to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in 2020, motivated by fury at the Democrat’s tough COVID-19 restrictions early in the pandemic.
The verdicts against Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta were read in the federal court in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Jurors said they couldn’t agree on verdicts against Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. Prosecutors described Fox as a ringleader of an anti-government group.
Earlier in the day, the jurors said that there are several counts which the deliberative body were deadlocked on. Testimony began on March 9.
“It is not unusual to come back somewhere along the line of deliberations and say ‘we tried, but couldn’t get there,'” U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker said, according to Detroit News. “At least not on everything.”
He encouraged the jurors to continue deliberations in hopes of reaching a unanimous decision, saying, “Before that’s the final answer, I would like you to go back and make another effort to see if you can come to an agreement on issues you are stuck on as a group.”
Democrats and the media will be so upset over this verdict.
After 18 months with the judge ruling in their favor on nearly every issue, the DOJ did not get a SINGLE CONVICTION in the alleged plot to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer

A jury just essentially ruled that the FBI led an operation to entrap the Michigan militia and that the Whitmer ‘kidnapping’ was a fed plot
This is *massive*

HUGE: The Whitmer kidnapping "plot" prosecution, which was used by the Left to smear Trump just before the election, imploded with a jury acquitting 2 and deadlocking on charges against 2 others. Jury obviously persuaded by evidence of FBI entrapment and corruption.

Imagine the hell these people have been through.
