FBI agent Richard Trask - who until this last weekend was the agent in charge of the case involving people who allegedly planned to kidnap Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer - has been fired.
That's because he tried to murder his wife in July of this year by bashing her head against a night stand and then, when that didn't work, strangling her. He let go only after she crushed one of his testicles in her hands. All this after he took her to a sex party where he wanted her to, in the parlance of our time, "pull a train."
Well, to be fair, the FBI won't say exactly why he's been fired, only acknowledging that he no longer works for the FBI. Way to take a stand there fellas!
All of which is really bad news for the case as he's not only the one in charge of it, he's also the under cover agent who allegedly put the idea of kidnapping the Guv into the defendant's heads in the first place. Last Weds, the 5 defendants' lawyers asked the Federal judge for a 90 day recess to further investigate other potential bad habits of the "top men"
entrapping investigating their clients, people who don't look smart enough to open a can of baked beans.
It's also bad news for Whitmer, who used the event to blame then President Trump, instead of the same FBI that colluded to lie to a Federal judge to get warrants on Trump's election team other misdeeds which also lead to firings.
Trask, who when not trying to murder his wife, posted on social media that President Trump "is a douchebag" and "piece of shit." Very odd statement as the FBI is a part of the executive branch, and of course gives immediate suspicion of his "investigation" being politically motivated.
Oddly, the local TV news stations and papers - all of which breathlessly told Michiganders for days about the heinous plot when news of it first dropped - haven't used nearly as much air time for this latest scandal within the Bureau.
I wonder why that might be? You'd think reporters would start asking exactly why & how an agency set up to stop crimes has instead been committing so much of it themselves.
