Defense attorneys representing five men accused of plotting to kidnap and kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer are seeking to dismiss an indictment, alleging that the FBI and federal prosecutors "entrapped" their clients in the conspiracy plot.

In a 20-page motion filed Christmas night, the attorneys claimed that the federal government invented a conspiracy theory about the alleged kidnapping plot in order to entrap five men who now face up to life in prison.


The attorneys are requesting that U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker dismiss a conspiracy charge against the defendants, which would effectively dismantle the government's case, The Detroit News reported.

"Essentially, the evidence here demonstrates egregious overreaching by the government's agents, and by the informants those agents handled," the defense attorneys wrote. "When the government was faced with evidence showing that the defendants had no interest in a kidnapping plot, it refused to accept failure and continued to push its plan."

The lawyers went on to claim that the government initiated the case "despite the fact that it knew there was no plan to kidnap, no operational plan, and no details about how a kidnapping would occur or what would happen afterward."

Furthermore, the attorneys alleged that FBI informants who helped the government with their investigation, "coaxed, persuaded, cajoled, played on sympathies, cultivated friendships, took advantage of the defendants' financial conditions, and suggested that the offense they proposed 'would further a greater good,'" according to The Detroit News.

This issue of entrapment attempts by the FBI has been called to attention for years by numerous sources, including this website. Yet still, the country has failed to acknowledge this issue to the degree it deserves. Until we come to our senses as a people, this type of victimization will persist, and corrupt agencies will continue to prey upon innocent and impoverished citizens simply to maintain the image of pseudo-relevancy of these agencies.

In the end, it's we who decide how long this corruption lasts.

Below are two clips from a post-9/11 documentary that covers a similar situation as the alleged "kidnapping attempt" of the Michigan governor. The documentary depicts the experiences of four unfortunate citizens who also allowed themselves to be coerced and entrapped by FBI agents and informants, broadcast to the world and labeled "terrorists," convicted of several crimes, and sentenced to prison.

The HBO documentary is called The Newburgh Sting.
