Sworn FBI testimony in the trial of the men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer has revealed that the FBI played such an integral role in hatching the alleged plot that they even trained the men to kidnap the Governor.
An undercover FBI informant trained men to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer, according to the sworn testimony of FBI agent Henrick Impola, which came as part of the ongoing trial of three men who are accused, along with eleven others, of plotting to kidnap the Michigan Governor.
The alleged plot to kidnap Whitmer was “busted” less than a month ahead of the 2020 Presidential Election, and instantly became a favorite piece of media cannon fodder for use in attacking the Trump campaign and the America First movement, who media and Democrats alike attempted to link to the situation.
Buzzfeed News reported as far back as 2021 that FBI informant Dan Chappel drove members of the “Wolverine Watchmen” militia group, along with 6,000 rounds of ammunition, to Cambria, Wisconsin for a training exercise. That exercise was organized by yet another FBI informant named Stephen Robeson.
What’s more, is that to drive the men to Wisconsin, Chappel rented a suburban and paid for gas, food, and lodging with FBI funds.
While it was revealed early on the that FBI played an integral role in hatching the alleged plot, it wasn’t until this week that the depth of the Bureau’s involvement went public, with an FBI agent perjuring himself in an attempt to cover up the involvement.
On Thursday in court, Henrick Impola initially denied that Dan Chappel, who was working as Impola’s informant, was involved in training the alleged Whitmer kidnapping plotters, but was then forced to admit that their training was organized by his own confidential informant.
“How is it that you’re allowing your informant, who’s supposed to be a listening post, to train for an illegal purpose?” a defense attorney asked Impola as he testified.
“He’s basically training them for the crime we’re here for, isn’t he?” the attorney remarked to the jury.
“I told him one of his roles is to make sure nobody gets hurt, nobody gets shot. I didn’t want any accidental discharges to happen, and for law enforcement to come on the scene,” Impola said, presumably because the presence of local law enforcement would blow up the FBI’s entire “investigation” into the “kidnapping plot” before the plot had actually been hatched.
Amazingly, it is not illegal for FBI informants to seriously violate the law when working on behalf of the Bureau, with their crimes being classified as “Otherwise Illegal Activities (OWA).” In other words, their actions would be illegal for an ordinary citizen, but not for someone working on behalf of federal law enforcement.
