(The Center Square) – New court filings say the FBI was aware an informant, or Confidential Human Source (CHS), used a charity to fund weapons in the alleged plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer but authorities didn’t charge him until more than a year later.
In December 2021, prosecutors charged former confidential informant Stephen Robeson with using money intended to combat child sex trafficking to fund weapons.
The FBI says it didn’t know Robeson used charity money to fund attacks. However, on Aug. 9, 2020, Special Agents Henrik Impola and Jayson Chambers “monitored” a call between “CHS Dan” and Adam Fox in which Fox said he asked if “CHS Steve’s” 504 is “set up to where it’s profiting money or raising money,” which “Dan” confirmed.
