A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced a man to 16 years in prison for his involvement in the faux plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
In August Adam Fox was found guilty on conspiracy to kidnap and guilty on possession of weapon of mass destruction.
Two men were found not guilty in the FBI’s made-up kidnapping case in Michigan and two men were released due to a hung jury back in April.
The two men released by the hung jury were back in court a second time.
Defendants Adam Fox and Barry Croft faced a trial for the second time over the summer.
In late August both Adam Fox and Barry Croft were found guilty on all charges related to an attempt to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Adam Fox was facing a life sentence, but the judge spared him.
US District Judge Robert Jonker on Tuesday questioned if Adam Fox was a “natural leader” of the plot and sentenced him to 16 years rather than a life sentence.
“I don’t think life is needed to achieve the important public deterrent factors,” the judge said, according to NBC News.
Here’s the backstory:
In an October 2020 press conference, the FBI announced it had thwarted a plot by a so-called “right-wing militia” to kidnap and kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
The Whitmer kidnapping plot was in the media 24/7 and used to bludgeon Trump with just a few weeks to go until Election Day.
The FBI used at least 12 informants in the Michigan Whitmer kidnapping case.
The FBI planned the Whitmer attack, organized the attack, paid for the attack, and recruited local men to join in their planned attack.
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 faux Whitmer kidnapping plot was just one of the many ways the FBI interfered in the 2020 election.
