Did the FBI Manipulate the Michigan Kidnapping Plot to Influence the Election?

Americans deserve to know whether the FBI meddled in the 2020 election.

Just before the November 2020 election, CNN and many other mainstream media outlets repeatedly attempted to tie President Trump to a domestic terrorism plot allegedly aimed at Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. “Trump has repeatedly attacked Whitmer before and after the news of the plot,” CNN wrote, implying that Trump’s criticism of Whitmer inspired the plot.
