Undercover FBI Agent Richard Trask Assaults Wife and is Released On Bond

by smart

fbi agent richard trask was in court facing assault charges for smashing his wife’s head into the side end table multiple times leaving her bloody this was the same fbi agent who signed off on the criminal complaint and the arrest warrant and the affidavit that was going in to round up all of the governor whitmer alleged plotters the people who were allegedly scoping out her residence and doing surveillance and plotting to kidnap the governor of governor whitmer so we’re going to go through this story this fbi agent had court we’re going to jump off with a headline over from michigan live right most of the media sort of kind of glossed over this so i want to take us back to michigan where the the local news is still covering a lot of this so let me i just accidentally my thumb accidentally clicked something because i uh sliced the top of it off but we’re back in business now all right so uh what i want to do is show you the headline and then we’ll go through the the uh what happened in court so it says an fbi agent linked to the whitmer kidnapping case choked his wife after a swinger’s party all right now before we get into this remember yesterday we went through a couple different things on the show we talked about the 2018 oig report that went in and investigated the fbi and said that the fbi had massive problems yesterday there was a new information a new new report that came out that said that there was a high level senior official with the fbi who was actually going out with the media and sort of you know glad handing them getting all sorts of meals and benefits getting tickets to black black tie gala events and all sorts of stuff and the oig the independent body that went and investigated all of these allegations came out and said specifically the fbi has a cultural problem this is a big stinking problem and what are they going to do about it nothing they just send a memo over to the fbi and expect them to deal with that so then this story comes out this week telling us that there is in fact a major cultural problem with the fbi and one of their agents who’s actually doing you know on in-field case work choked his wife smashed her head into the to an end table and then went to a swinger’s party earlier that night so he smashed his wife head into the nightstand richard trask 2 is charged with one felony count of assault intent to do great bodily harm less than murder over in kalamazoo county district court charge stems from a domestic violent incident that was according to the probable cause affidavit was filed by the sheriff’s office blood was actively running down the side of trask’s wife’s head when police arrived at her home in oshitamo township back on july 18th m live and others do not identify the victims of domestic violence this was a painting that was done by a ap artist jeremy leminu says that in this courtroom drawing we see the federal agent here this is fbi agent richard trask u.s magistrate judge sally barons over in the courtroom over here in grand rapids testified that members of anti-government military group from several states discussed abducting mission or governor gretchen whitmer right he’s testifying there or virginia governor ralph northam during a june event barron said that five men’s cases go to a grand jury so he’s testifying in court they’re all going to go to a grand jury and get indicted this is going to determine whether to issue the indictments and guess what they did they got indicted and we covered the entirety of that case this was a signing from the criminal complaints that we covered here you see this is the united states of america versus adam fox barry croft ty garvin caleb franks daniel harris and brandon caserta i think we spent most of our time talking about caserta here this is the criminal complaint june 2020 county of kent and elsewhere the u.s code violation is the conspiracy to commit kidnapping guess who signed off on this october 6 2020 the same guy who smashes his wife’s head into a desk the same guy who i just totally lost my train of thought because i’m looking at this document here sally barron’s us magistrate judge grand rapids michigan okay so this is the guy’s name this is richard trask special agent signed off on this document october 6 2020. this was this this was pre-election right so i’m trying to think through the timeline here october 2020 was right before the election took place right and all of this investigation was taking place this was all right in sync with the election which i just didn’t even realize didn’t even realize that right we all talk about an october surprise and all this stuff very interesting okay so let me get back to the article this is from michigan live so here’s what happened earlier the day earlier in the day several drinks according to the affidavit they went in their bedroom at home the wife was laying down when trask got on top of her he grabbed the sides of her head according to the affidavit he smashed her head into a nearby nightstand multiple times according to the wife she tried to grab tasks trask’s beard to get him off but he started to choke her and so choking is a very big problem right a regular assault is you know you hit somebody or you swing in their direction and you place them in apprehension of imminent offensive contact when you actually place your your hands around somebody’s neck or you strangle them that opens up a whole new area of law and in arizona it takes it from a misdemeanor case which is a lower level you know county court state level court up into a superior court which is where we process our felonies just by simply putting your hands around somebody’s neck right you can punch him in the head you might be charged with a misdemeanor but as soon as you let’s say punch him in the head and then grab their neck felony because it’s a big deal you can kill somebody that way the neck is a very vulnerable spot and so we want to make sure that the law is is disincentivizing that type of activity so this guy then just as he’s you know leaving a swingers party slams his wife’s head into the side of a desk multiple times she tries to grab his beard he starts to choke her the woman told the police she doesn’t think she lost consciousness but she doesn’t know right because she was probably hammered drunk the wife grabbed testicles which ended the fight according to the affidavit she had multiple cuts on the right side of her head severe bruising on her neck when the police arrived she also had blood running out of her head and all over her chest clothing arms and hands trask grabbed some clothing and fled the house in his wife’s vehicle according to the affidavit police came upon him found him in a parking lot read him his miranda rights he said he understood and he did not want to give a statement guess what he did oh yeah he followed the 123 rule which is available as an online course over at locals or watching the watchers.locals.com there’s a promo code for gumroad.com robert grueller however this officer did not say anything nope don’t want to give a statement well what do we know about that it’s the right move if you follow the 1-2-3 rule the fbi knows about the charges fbi spokesman mary schneider said in a statement they cannot confirm if he’s still actively working or not of course right so she then let’s see we already read this one uh here we are fully cooperating with the prosecutor’s office on this matter said schneider in accordance with the fbi policy the incident is subject to internal review we cannot comment further at this time so the fbi as is usually the case they can’t tell us anything about this even though there are several defendants right now working their way through the federal courts based on this guy’s affidavit he wrote an affidavit saying that they were going to go kidnap the governor or governor northam and they conducted an arrest and everything this guy turns out may not be the most honest integral person on the planet or a person full of integrity because he smashes his wife’s head into the desk right not good so let’s see what else is here trask was granted personal recognizance bond do you see that right there my friends personal recognizance bond you know what that means it means he’s out of custody okay so we have a former fbi agent who is now out of custody he’s allowed to return to his home address as part of bond conditions he’s not allowed to return to his home address or contact his wife okay so this guy gets out of custody can’t go home can’t contact your wife can’t possess a gun those are all called release conditions and so if you are somebody that hasn’t been charged with a crime before this is very common right okay well you made a mistake you did something bad you go through the system the court says don’t call your wife don’t go home don’t get a gun but don’t commit any other crimes we’re gonna let you back out on your own which is appropriate which also would be appropriate for the capitol hill defendants who also many of whom never did anything violent at all they were just in there they were just trespassing they were disorderly they didn’t smash somebody’s head repeatedly into the desk and then flee run off there right this is an fbi agent in my humble opinion i think that this invalidates a large swath of all of his testimony basically most of the things that he said now the credibility behind them is now lacking severely his next court hearing is not yet scheduled he has not hired an attorney according to court records i want to show you a quick picture of this guy this is what he looks like this came over from the detroit news she told police any more information here uh several several times banging his head into the nightstand here’s what he looks like fbi special agent bad police officer bad fbi agent 39 from kalamazoo charged on monday with assault is this guy a crossfitter does he is this is this crossfit over here oh my gosh i pressed the wrong button is this crossfit over here is this guy crossfitter i i don’t know if it is or not i he might be i don’t have a problem with crossfit but it’s uh you know it’s another missing piece of the puzzle so all right let’s see what else is here fbi let’s see track was released on a ten thousand dollar personal recognizance bond right here ten thousand dollars personal bond following arraignment in eighth district court facing charges punishable by 10 years in prison he’s prohibited from possessing a firearm does anybody think that he is going to get 10 years in prison 39 worked for the fbi since 2011 served as the public face in the whitmer case testified in federal court about the investigation worked on cases involving espionage terrorism domestic extremism fbi’s not going to contact or make comments about anything why would they alright let’s take a look at some questions over from watchingthewatchers.locals.com see if there’s any questions that came in or any super chats that came in let’s see what is over here all right coming in we have fbi this is miss lucky miss lucky’s here says when i sergeant bob component worked for portland the feds had a reputation of being able to screw up i.e make fubar any tactical incident so that’s interesting miss lucky and sergeant that’s sergeant bob there so sergeant bob says he used to work for portland feds had a reputation of being able to screw up make fubar any tactical incident i see what he’s saying okay okay so i read that two ways but i think i got it so so the one the first way that i read it which i think is incorrect is that they well no that’s also correct that the feds just screw stuff up they just come in here and foo bar it up but i think what you’re saying is that when the feds came in they actually foo barred up any one of your specific tactical incidents so it’s not like it’s two things they had a reputation for that and then also practically when they came in and worked on your cases they foobared it which is just sounds sounds right to me it sounds very accurate we have hangin manon is here says with the recent event of other possible impropriety in the case against the kidnappers can this help the defense in that case i absolutely think it does right i think that anything now that this guy says is subject to some serious cross-examination of course the government’s going to try to keep all of that out of the case but i think it really undermines his credibility and it goes to his propensity for um a lot of different things right intent motivation uh all sorts of stuff so i would be if i were a defense attorney which i am working on this case which i’m not this would be a big a big deal this would be a big game-changing momentum shifter we have hunter biden’s in here he says hey cool a swingers party do i have to bring someone oh i don’t know who posted that but well done oh it’s too good a swinger’s party do i have to bring someone i don’t know i don’t i’ve never been to one don’t intend to go to one but i don’t know is it is it is it be your own byo something put your put your letter at the end of that bring your own put whatever whatever you want uh i don’t know what you do with that byo v b y o p b y o a i don’t know what you i don’t know what you want whatever whatever you whatever you want to do all right we also have it’s ed says grabbed his testicles are you sure this wasn’t a kink session that got out of hand remember kids safety words are important yes even if you’re an fbi agent yeah you got to have those safety words make sure you know them oh my goodness okay we we have uh ny the doctor renal md is in the house from new york says at the time when the fbi action took place whitmer was hurting in popularity people were talking about impeachment or the recall of governor whitmer her husband’s boat was in the water when the whole state of michigan was locked down interesting how the fbi came into rescue governor whitmer to distract their entrapment scheme yeah i didn’t really realize the timing was that uh was that close to the election i thought that a lot of that was taking place earlier but it’s it is surprising right it’s certainly and now that we know that a large portion of those people were in fact undercover well yeah interesting stuff we have nadarb here says didn’t one of the lead officers get moved to dc and have some sort of connection to january 6 at least according to revolver news and darren beatty you know there are a lot of deep dives on this i think buzz buzzfeed actually did a very very in-depth uh piece that i have queued up to read i have not read it yet because it is that long but it uh there’s that one revolver news has been doing some great work on this but i uh i don’t know the specifics of that one officer yeah i’ll have to take a look at that we have some more coming on in here miss lucky says sergeant bob says mainly initiated by them we didn’t let them run our game i love that good for you sergeant bob pushing back against those feds like in the movies the feds roll in you say this is my case did you say that sergeant bob not on my watch there get out of here agents love it love it all right let’s jump over to super chats let’s see what’s coming in over here uh we have a super iron bob said that the second locals link in the description is broken my fault what a what a doofus all right i’ll fix that that was for the slides i think so i’ll get or the form no the form okay well i’ll figure it out thanks for flagging that for me super iron bob we also have uh ravich is here says rob huge oh no i think we got that one let’s see what else i saw a couple of ken come in curtis bartle is here curtis bartle said uh rob aroni we love you i love you back curtis bartle thank you for the support i appreciate that we had another one okay i think that was it i think we got caught up over there so we’ll go back over to the locals forms we have speech unleashed us here says don’t fbi agents have to pass psych evaluations and anger management evaluations often you know i don’t i don’t know i i would i would think so i would have thought that that would have been the case like they could have identified you know they can i you would think that this would have raised a red flag for them they talk a lot about red flags you think this might have been one of those but what do i know thunder 7 says hey rob was the agent on duty on january 6 posing as an antifa thug do you think he might be able to make a plea deal to testify against the fbi agency to get a better deal with the assault charge so that’s a great question what that would require would be the justice department wanting that to happen right so the only people who can really negotiate on a plea deal in this case would be the prosecutors right the prosecutors are charging the governor whitmer alleged plotters with an alleged plot and they’re facing criminal charges and criminal penalties so the prosecutor would have to come back in and make them an offer say listen if you give us some dirt on what’s going on with the fbi we’ll dismiss your charges we’ll give you a smoke and plea deal we’ll keep you out of prison we’ll do a bunch of great stuff but you got to work with us so you’d have to find a us attorney who wanted to go make a case out of you know whistle blowing on the fbi that’s not going to happen there’s nobody over there who wants to do that they’re all in cahoots with one another as far as i can tell we have nadarb says here we go and as the cherry on top what if we told you that the director of the detroit fbi field office who oversaw the infiltration of operation michigan plot was subsequently granted a highly coincidental promotion to the dc office where he’s now lead for all 1-6 cases over from revolver news let’s take a quick look at that see that here the title of this unindicted co-conspirators in the 1-6 case raise disturbing questions of federal for knowledge there it is well i don’t i know i’m not going to pay for that okay so all right well full segment is over there on youtube good stuff for that thank you for that uh there let’s see what else that’s in the darb thanks we’ve got a couple other questions before we wrap up for the day want to know says isn’t he innocent until proven guilty heard that somewhere should he had talked to the investigators he is technically innocent until proven guilty yes he is a defendant and yes i believe in the presumption of innocence and all of that stuff but i just have a difficult time sort of mustering that energy when it’s law enforcement officials that do the same crimes that other people that they put other people in prison for right law enforcement they’re happy to round you up for assault they’re happy to lock you up and throw away the key but if they do it they get a significant benefit of the doubt so as much as i appreciate the presumption of innocence what we have seen in in my experience is most most law enforcement officials they get way more than the presumption of innocence they get the the uh gift wrap in a sense here you go here you go is this to your liking is this is this beautiful enough for you sir here’s your innocence delivered right to your doorstep enjoy it and that’s why i get so frustrated with these cases we have another super chat that just came in says yes the guy was the head of the fbi in michigan he’s now in charge of the washington bureau he was on january 6th so that’s just outstanding that’s from tracy griffin thank you for that tracy uh yeah so we’re gonna continue to follow this story certainly you know his case will continue to work its way through the federal courts and so we will uh we’ll follow it along we’ll make sure that we have updates here and those are all great questions from uh both locals and youtube and i appreciate all of
