Another election cycle, another attempt to make an example out of Christopher Cantwell.
Chris was recently arrested on charges of alleged extortion and threats against a potential co-conspirator in a crime against him that he was in the process of reporting to law enforcement. Instead of arresting the criminals that Chris reported, the FBI arrested Chris instead.
Thankfully, the case against him is pretty weak. And though we can never underestimate the degree to which the legal system can be manipulated to railroad people for political purposes, the incomplete and inaccurate reporting by the media has left many wondering: what’s this all about, anyway?
For this episode, I’m going to give you some more of the back story on how Chris came to be involved with these people in the first place, and why they decided to commit crimes against him.
