…snitching and/or helping the FBI build a case where none exists.
The FBI has been reported to have recently approached a defunct activist while they sat in jail on a “normal” type charge (think speeding, and the like). They reportedly offered to make the charge go away in exchange for the vomiting of years old information. Guess what, they don’t have the authority to do make a charge like that go away…ever.
In the parallel meantime, another activist is out on bail charged with allegedly placing a part of their body across the threshold of a doorway, which the state translates to “burglary”. Good luck with that.
Perhaps the FBI jail visit was an attempt to gain any amount of scoop on the bailed out activist. Seems pretty likely, but nobody’s being specific about what was asked.
