The jury in the Plot to Kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer trial has found two of the defendants not guilty, and were hung on the two other defendants. The Gateway Pundit writes:
The Governor Whitmer kidnapping case, which we now know was comprised of virtually all FBI agents and informants took another devastating hit in August. Michael Hills, an attorney for Brandon Caserta, one of the six defendants, produced text messages showing an FBI field agent telling an informant to lie, frame an innocent man and delete text messages.
This is why federal prosecutors are refusing to hand over text messages and laptops from FBI informants in the Whitmer kidnapping case. The FBI actually hatched the plot. paid for the plot, ran the plot, and set up the innocent men in their immoral scheme.
The FBI’s top informant behind the kidnapping scam was later arrested after he beat his wife following a swingers party…
So, it’s a clear case of entrapment. That’s when gubmint officials intentionally set up hapless patsies to engage in or plot to engage in illicit or criminal activities. Which the hapless patsies never actually did. Gov. Wretchen Witless was never kidnapped.
In my view, the ones who concocted, planned and plotted this case, the FBI, and who intentionally entrapped hapless patsies, the FBI, are the ones who should be put on trial. What they did was criminal, in my view. Their sentences should be the same exact sentences that the acquitted alleged plotters would have been sentenced to had they been found guilty. I think one of the sentences was to have been life in prison?
And here are some tweets by Glenn Greenwald on this fiasco:
Now, a lot of people hear about FBI corruption and incompetence, but they still give the FBI the benefit of the doubt. They don’t want to “second guess” the government’s “security” related central planning apparatus, the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. But after the police state regime of J. Edgar Hoover, 9/11, the Marathon bombing and the Tsarnaevs, the Florida school shooter, “Trump-Russia collusions,” January 6th and all the rest, do you think there may come a point at which you might say, hmm, maybe it might be best to get rid of the FBI?
So anyway, I was reminded of a post I did 4 years ago on the “honest, well-meaning FBI,” with several links to articles showing that we may be better off without them.
Here is that post, The Honest, Well-Meaning FBI (Some links are from the Wayback Machine):

Byron York in the Examiner examines how the FBI relied heavily on the Christopher Steele-concocted “Trump dossier” to present to the FISA court to get their illegal surveillance warrant to spy on Carter Page. York gets into all the specifics on how the FBI used the dossier even though they knew that Steele had lied to them and was not credible, and therefore the dossier itself was not credible.
But York shows how faithful he is in the “integrity” and well-meaningness of FBI officials, when he seems to go along with the Grassley-Graham Senate memo on this issue, asserting that regardless of knowing that Steele lied to them the FBI “kept faith” and believed Steele anyway. Actually, I think it’s Byron York whose faith in the FBI (and in other national security apparatchiks) causes him to not doubt their sincerity and forthrightness. Now, I’m not accusing anyone of anything, but would it be a huge surprise if we heard that FBI agents took the unreliable dossier to the FISA court knowing that it was unreliable, that they knowingly presented a false and extremely questionable item of “evidence” to the court to falsely get a FISA warrant? Is that too hard to believe? Now, I’m not accusing anyone of anything, but…
All you have to do is read these recent articles by James Bovard on the history of FBI shenanigans.
USA Today: Nunes memo released: FBI objections lacked credibility given bureau’s shady past
The HIll: Golden boy Robert Mueller’s forgotten surveillance crime spree
The Hill: Destroying, suppressing evidence is FBI standard procedure
The Hill: Yes, the FBI is America’s secret police
USA Today: Comey Firing justly knocks FBI off its pedestal
And these other articles on the current situation:

And on the FBI’s encouraging young Muslim patsies to commit jihad so the FBI can thwart their own plots, see Glenn Greenwald, Trevor Aaronson, Petra Bartosiewicz, Craig Monteilh, and Cora Currier.
And the FBI people actually swear or affirm an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. So, they either haven’t actually read or studied it, or they do know what they’ve actually sworn or affirmed to support and defend, but don’t care.
I think that Byron York of the Examiner is like many faithful, indoctrinated Americans who really believe in these government institutions. But, it would be helpful if York and all the other faithful members of the government’s obedient flock would read Robert Higgs, who pointed out, If men were angels…
