In a bizarre case of a kidnapping against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
Three of the fourteen men tried in the case were acquitted by a Michigan Jury.
The original incident occurred back in 2020.
In the so-called ‘terrorist’ operation.
Many FBI agents were involved in the operation, acting as double agents.
The fact that the government can lure people into trying to commit these actions and then arrest them is abhorrent.

Thank GOD for Truth & Justice PREVAILING!

Nice to know that if the FBI plans an attack, and promotes an attack, and grabs three regular folks to watch what the FBI is doing, that even a Michigan jury will acquit them of having done anything illegal.

The Guardian has more info on the story:
William Null, his twin brother Michael Null and Eric Molitor were found not guilty of providing support for a terrorist act, and a weapons charge, by a jury in northern Michigan’s Antrim county.
They were accused of scouting Whitmer’s vacation home for other members of a rightwing militia who, angered by the governor’s 2020 Covid-19 lockdown and perceived threats to gun ownership rights, planned to abduct her.
The three were the last of 14 men to face charges in state or federal court. Nine others were convicted, including the plot’s co-leaders Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr, who were sentenced to 16 years and 19 years respectively on consecutive days last December.
The 14-day trial in the same county where Whitmer has her vacation home, 185 miles north of Lansing, evoked memories of one of the darkest periods in Michigan’s history. In April and May 2020, armed militia mobs roamed the state capitol, thousands of anti-government protesters brought gridlock to the streets, and the statehouse was breached.
Emboldened by the protests, Fox, Croft and others hatched the kidnap plot. Prosecutors said Molitor and the Null brothers supported the plan by participating in military-style drills and traveling to see Whitmer’s home.
I’m grateful that the jury freed these men.
No one should be the subject of our government manipulating them into committing acts of terrorism.
