Rough week for the DOJ. First, a January 6th defendant is acquitted on the legal principle that you can’t convict someone of trespassing if you let them in in the first place, and now a jury has acquitted two defendants and deadlocked on two more in the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot. Specifically, the kidnapping plot that was instigated by FBI undercover agents and paid informants. One of the FBI Agents involved in the case was subsequently arrested on domestic abuse charges.
The FBI’s conduct in this case was egregious. The FBI and its informants instigated the plot, moved to entrap the participants, and tried to destroy exculpatory evidence.
