A KEY FBI INFORMANT IS QUESTIONED BY MICHIGAN DEFENSE ATTORNEYS IN THE ALLEGED KIDNAPPING PLOT OF GRETCHEN WHITMER
Following a nine-day trial, Assistant U.S. Attorney Nils Kessler repeatedly asked the jury to concentrate on what Fox and Croft were saying months before the FBI infiltrated the organization that summer with undercover agents and informants.
In the middle of the night, “these defendants were outside a woman’s house with night-vision goggles and firearms and a plan to abduct her,” Kessler alleged. “They also created an actual bomb. That’s enough, don’t you think?”
