The FBI has suffered so many black eyes lately, it must have more eyes than a housefly. And here’s the latest haymaker:
As we’re learning more about that alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, it’s looking more and more as if the FBI didn’t just get a tip and infiltrate the plot but were actively engaged from the beginning in orchestrating it and luring people into it. Attorneys are starting to question whether there would have been a conspiracy at all if the undercover agents hadn’t lured people into it. It’s getting perilously close to the definition of “entrapment.”
But that’s not all: in a separate story also cited at that link, an Inspector General’s report cited found that a then-senior FBI official had numerous unauthorized contacts with the media and accepted unauthorized gifts from the media.
As columnist Kurt Schlichter points out, in his inimitable way, it’s getting harder to buy the claim that it’s just a few bad apples at the FBI causing all the problems when all we ever hear about is barrels and barrels of bad apples and no good apples speaking up to say, “Enough! I quit!”
