A militia group in Michigan has just been arrested while planning to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
As Anna Russel would say, “I’m not making this up, you know.”
This is a logical extension of the whole militia/White Supremacist/Proud Boys/Oath Keepers sh%$ that Donald Trump has bee cultivating for years.
The federal government has charged six people with conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in an alleged domestic terrorist plot, according to newly unsealed court records.
Seven others face state charges, brought by Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. All 13 are in custody, officials said.
Members of a militia group purchased weapons, conducted surveillance, and held training and planning meetings, but were foiled in part because the FBI was able to infiltrate the group with informants, according to charges officials planned to detail Thursday.
Plans included kidnapping Whitmer and putting her on trial for treason, officials allege.
They were planning on killing her. Treason is a capital offense, particularly for the right wing militia crowd.
Whitmer also lashed out at President Donald Trump and accused him of “stoking distrust,” “fomenting anger” and emboldening groups who “spread fear and hatred and division.”
Trump is losing his sh%$ over her comments, to which I say, “You are such a delicate snowflake.”
