This week’s episode, a collaboration with Western Sound and Alphabet Boys, uncovers the FBI’s efforts to penetrate Denver’s 2020 racial justice protests using a paid informant. Reporter Trevor Aaronson obtained covert recordings that demonstrate how informant Mickey Windecker monitored racial justice activists and attempted to recruit two demonstrators in a conspiracy to eliminate the Colorado attorney general.
