The FBI – through its informants – has been credibly accused of conceiving the idea to kidnap (and furthering the plans to kidnap) Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
FBI Special Agent Richard Trask helped lead that effort.

For your review, here is the full Affidavit of Probable Cause, which states “Trask is being charged with aggravated domestic violence, assault by strangulation.” (We redacted the name of the victim and their address.)
