Three men on trial for state charges related to the FBI entrapment scheme acquitted Friday on all counts by a Michigan jury.
Great news. FBI agents who set people up are the real domestic terrorists.
This is good news I hope the appeals are also successful. I recently studied for the multiple professional responsibility exam . I'm already an attorney but I needed to get licensed in another state. As I studied the Code of Ethics for attorneys and judges and refreshed my recollection of the code, I was shocked at how many violations there are and many grounds for disbarment of many judges especially in DC
Sing along to the .melody of "Where have all the flowers gone". Where have all the constitutional lawyers gone!
This is some of the best, most encouraging news I've seen/read recently in which the weaponized, Stasi-style-Secret-Police actually were slapped-down by the jury in these cases. The involvement of the FBI's paid informants, undercover agents and Confidential Human Sources simply illustrates and indicates how far the once-revered FBI had gone to resemble with East Germany of Stalin's henchman, Berea. I'm certainly not a legal scholar but common sense tells me that it's unconstitutional for judges, whether they are federal or state, to issue an order preventing defense attorneys' from telling the jurors that this entire fiasco was originated by the Feds and supported by the Feds in order to have a cudgel to attack former (and, I'm hopeful future) President Trump. It's rare as a hen's tooth for the government to lose a case of this type...maybe there is hope after all.
The Michigan case (entrapment and incitement) is enough reason to shutter the FBI for good.
January 6th is the icing on the cake. In a just world, it would be a done deal. And "Governor" Whitmer should be hiding somewhere in the woods, hanging her head in shame for the rest of her life. What a despicable, ugly person.
Keep up the great investigative reporting - and thank you.
I would argue that the FBI engaged in Election Interference for the 2020 Presidential Election. News of the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot broke in October 8, 2020 - close to the 2020 Election with the goal of associating the accused with Domestic Terrorists/White Supremacists in order to discredit Trump and Trump supporters (MAGA).
Isn't it nice to know how our taxes are funding FBI entrapment operations and election interference?
At least 5 of those entrapped in the Whitmer kidnapping plot have been declared 'Not Guilty'. This case is just another example of why an increasing number of People no longer trust the Main Stream Media (MSM).
Beautiful to behold. Outside of Washington D.C. Stasi government tactics fail. America is a republic of sovereign states and not a country whose central authorities can reign terror on the states, the cities, the communities and the countrysides. America was designed as a country that owns a government and not a government that owns a country.
“In the meantime, those on the side of truth and justice can celebrate another humiliating loss for the government and a darkening black eye on the FBI.”
Means nothing at all. Will sail past the Woke leftist democrats like water off a duck’s back. They have their own version of “truth and Justice” which is the polar opposite of ours. Consider this article below from a political science professor. In the section, “Race: Students for Fair Admissions vs Harvard College” he says “The new constitutional rule is that the equal protection clause is a promise to treat all citizens of all races the same, rather than the alternative understanding of the clause’s promise to move society toward equity among racial groups, which allows or even encourages the differential treatment of some groups in order to make up for past injustices.”
He’s interpreting the Constitution through the lens of Woke “social justice” which sees the world in terms of “oppressors” (whites) vs the “oppressed” (“people of color” in general and blacks in particular.) These are the type of judges though that Biden is appointing to the federal courts. Vivek says he will issue an Executive Order banning race based affirmative action on his first day if elected. That’s exactly the opposite of what Biden did on his first day in office which was to issue an Executive Order to replace meritocracy wherever it can be found with Equity aka Equal Outcomes. This is now an irreconcilable difference in America between the Woke vs the nonWoke. This is an impossible situation.
“A constitutional revolution is underway at the Supreme Court, as the conservative supermajority rewrites basic understandings of the roots of US law.”

Thank you for reporting some good positive news Julie Kelly. The video reminded me of the awful challenges these families have had to endure through all of this. I can’t imagine being set up and falsely accused for political reasons. Special thanks to the Good Lord for providing these defendants with a fair and honest jury.
Julie Kelly is one in a handful of journalists responsible for bringing this egregiously abusive official corruption to light.
It’s a shame what the FBI has become. Agents have the wrong incentives, to create cases where none exist for the purpose of supporting the liberal narrative of white supremacists who want to overthrow the government through insurrection. Vivek has the right idea, Eliminate the FBI. While we’re at it, eliminate the CIA and the other corrupt spy agencies. They are all being used against American citizens who do not conform to the correct narrative.
Witless FEDNAP-scam blows up on FBI/STAZI fraudsters.
When the feds were crowing around various indictments of middle eastern men for alleged “terrorists” plots in the wake of 9/11 Americans had no idea the feds would use the same methods of entrapment against American citizens. Shame on us for allowing these abuses against the “other”.
As a soldier of many years and the balance as of today served as a volunteer firefighter... When I say government I do NOT mean the folks at the ground level doing their jobs under a shitty system.
Everyone above them is corrupt at best as there is no oversight and hasn't been for decades.
Julie Kelly, thank you for reporting on this disturbing story. What baffles me is that not more Democrats, mainstream Republicans, and mainstream news media aren't jumping at these stories of blatant corruption and misuse of government power.
The judge didn't sound happy at the end of the video. Thank God the jurors had some sense.
Great news. Now if only the convicted ones gain relief via their appeals.
Saw a weird AP story about a Jan 6 "criminal" named Samuel Lazar. Per the AP, everything about his case is sealed, and media unsuccessful in fighting to unseal. Any information would be appreciated, this entire story just becomes more baffling as time passes.
