FBI informant in Gov Whitmer kidnapping case drops damning accusation against the bureau

Just when you thought things could not look any worse for the FBI, an informant in the Whitmer kidnapping case dropped a bombshell claiming the agency asked the Michigan State Police to let protesters into the Capitol.

Pile that on top of Jan. 6 suspicions and the unprecedented raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and you get a stew of distrust that is beginning to boil over concerning the federal government. The DOJ is now flatly refusing to release the affidavit in the raid on Trump’s home which is ratcheting up tensions beyond tolerable levels.

Many have wondered about the sketchy plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Monday, a jury heard from an informant in the case. A retrial is taking place for two suspects who were accused of involvement in the plot after a previous jury was unable to reach a verdict. Two others were acquitted.

The FBI informant named Dan Chappel, 35, a former U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq, is testifying concerning his involvement with the Wolverine Watchmen, the group at the center of the case. He was at a protest at the Michigan Capitol on April 30, 2020, against the COVID lockdowns where he claims the FBI openly called for police to let protesters into the building, according to Red State. Bizarrely, the two defendants are not members of the Watchmen.

Chappel said he initially feared going undercover due to safety concerns for his young daughter but he did it because he feared for the lives of police officers, asserting the militia members were looking for the addresses of cops, according to the Associated Press.

“They were training to target law enforcement to kill them,” he testified. “I had no idea what these individuals were capable of.”

Buzzfeed’s Ken Bensinger is reporting that Chappel was wearing a wire for the FBI while in the Capitol. That means there was at least one FBI informant allegedly planted at the protest and there were probably others. Chappel told his handlers that he feared the protest outside would get violent. That was when the FBI reportedly asked Michigan State Police to let people into the building to “de-escalate” the situation.

As that fact comes to light, it makes people wonder how many other events the FBI has infiltrated. A good bet is a whole bunch of them.

Most people would contend letting the protesters into the building would not “de-escalate” the situation, but instead, do the exact opposite. Fortunately, things reportedly did not get violent that day.

The FBI roiled both sides of the political divide with their actions that day. The left accused the FBI of infiltrating events for years and siding with those on the right. Those on the right compared the incident to Jan. 6, where individuals were also let into the Capitol building that day, which escalated the event where deadly violence occurred.

Republicans are now calling for investigations into the Trump raid and Jan. 6. The Michigan incident will probably also get scrutinized since an informant let the cat out of the bag over the FBI infiltrating the protest.

Questions over the police inviting protesters into the Michigan Capitol that day are getting louder by the minute:
