I thought for sure they were going to bury this, because everyone thought it was so stupid.
I frankly can’t really believe one single person believed it, but I guess they must have, because it’s still going.
They’re trying to tie a bunch more randos to it.
On May 18, the FBI was months into investigating an alleged terror plot targeting Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. On that day, a local sheriff was sharing a protest stage with one of the men who would be charged with providing material support to terrorist acts.
Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf said he knew nothing of the alleged crimes being planned. But his apparent friendly relationship with members of the armed group suggests there can be blind spots for local law enforcement.
After 13 men were charged in connection with the plot, Leaf said some of their actions could have been lawful.
“A lot of people are angry with the governor and they want her arrested,” Leaf told CNN affiliate WXMI. At the May rally, Leaf had compared Whitmer’s stay-at-home orders to mass detention, MLive reported.
Leaf said to WXMI: “So are they trying to arrest or was it a kidnap attempt? Because you can still, in Michigan if it’s a felony, you can still make a felony arrest.”
He continued: “And (it) doesn’t say if you are in elected office that you are exempt from that arrest. So I have to look at it from that angle. And I am hoping that’s more like what it is.”
Leaf said the terror charges against twin brothers Michael and William Null, along with 11 others, had not been proven and they deserved the presumption of innocence. “In fact, these guys are innocent until proven guilty, so I am not even sure if they had any part in it,” he said.
William and Michael Null and five others face state charges of providing material support for terrorist acts and carrying or possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony. Six other men face federal charges.
The brothers, who are each accused of acting as lookouts while surveillance was done on Whitmer’s vacation home, are being detained. Bond has been set at $250,000. Neither has yet entered a plea and their probable cause hearings are set for October 14. CNN’s requests for comment made to their attorneys have met with no response.
An FBI agent testified Tuesday that members of the group had also named Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam as a potential target.
Leaf did not respond to multiple attempts to contact him. Barry County is located in southwest Michigan, between Grand Rapids, Lansing and Kalamazoo.
In his WXMI interview, besides saying Michigan’s criminal code allowed citizens to arrest officials, Leaf appeared to give credit to the men for being part of an armed group known as the Wolverine Watchmen.
“Well, you look at the militia itself and the originations of the militia,” Leaf told WXMI. “They have more of a legal standing in this country than the agencies that arrested them.”
Oh, thank God and praise be to Christ, normal people are finally calling out the FBI for what it is: an utterly criminal organization, which has zero mandate to operate in this country at all, let alone with total impunity.
Sheriff Leaf is an absolute hero.
Why is a man like him not Attorney General of the United States?
Why not him, specifically?
Yes, I’m sure Jew William Barr scored higher on a few tests, but what the hell does that have to do with being a cop? Sheriff Leaf is managing his county just fine, and there’s no reason to believe he couldn’t manage the country just as well.
The reason of course has nothing to do with SAT scores or college education. The reason is that this is a corrupt country run by criminals, and Sheriff Leaf wouldn’t be allowed in because he isn’t a criminal.
William Barr wouldn’t arrest these men, who are responsible for the greatest crime in our nation’s history:
But he made a gigantic public spectacle of entrapping and arresting these men, for a fake crime:
That is the current state of our country.
But a whole helluva lot of people don’t like it. We still have the people. That’s why they’re replacing our population with brown people and trying to turn everyone gay and otherwise destroy the birthrate: because white men still stand with us.
White American Men still stand for freedom and justice, in the name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
A reckoning is coming.
God is going to give them blood to drink.
