What the FBI hid in key fobs during Whitmer kidnap investigation

Detroit News


FBI agents infiltrated an alleged plot to kidnap and hurt Gov. Gretchen Whitmer by hiding recording devices in key fobs that captured conversations among undercover informants and accused plotters, according to a court filing late Monday.

A defense lawyer for one of the accused ringleaders, Potterville resident Adam Fox, 38, argued conversations captured by the spy gadget will prove there was no conspiracy to kidnap Whitmer and that the government entrapped five men awaiting trial in a case that has focused attention on violent extremism in Michigan. Defense lawyers are fighting to play the recordings for jurors during a trial starting in March in federal court in Grand Rapids.

1. There actually is violent extremism in Michigan. It's been there quite a while.
