(HorizonPost.com) – The alleged mastermind behind the FBI’s scheme to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Barry Croft Jr., was given a 19.5-year prison term on Wednesday.
Adam Fox, a co-defendant, was given a 16-year prison term on Tuesday for his part in the fictitious plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
After being freed in April due to a hung jury, Barry Croft and Adam Fox underwent a second trial in August and were ultimately found guilty of conspiring to kidnap and guilty of possessing a weapon of mass destruction.
CNBC stated that a man who was found guilty of being a key player in the scheme to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer received a sentence of 19 1/2 years in prison on Wednesday, which was longer than that given to a co-defendant.
U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker handed down Fox’s 192-month prison term on Tuesday, paving the way for Croft’s 235-month sentence.
According to Jonker, he believes that Mr. Croft is more guilty than even Mr. Fox. He believes he was the one who provided Mr. Fox with “something to grab on to.”
The backstory is that the FBI revealed it had thwarted a plot by a purported “right-wing militia” to kidnap and murder Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in a press conference in October 2020.
With only a few weeks until election day, the Whitmer kidnapping plot was used as a club against Trump in the media, which covered it nonstop.
In the Michigan Whitmer kidnapping case, the FBI employed at least 12 informants.
The Whitmer attack was organized, funded, and planned by the FBI, who also enlisted the assistance of local men.
One of the six defendants, Brandon Caserta, was represented by Michael Hills, who produced texts showing an FBI field agent ordering an informant to fabricate evidence, frame an innocent man, and delete texts.
For this reason, federal prosecutors in the Whitmer kidnapping case refuse to turn over text messages and laptops from FBI informants. The FBI conceived the plot. They funded the plot, oversaw it, and used the defenseless men as pawns in their evil scheme.
This was one of many ways the FBI meddled in the 2020 election.
