DOJ Charges 6 Individuals in Plot to Kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer

More than a dozen men were arrested on federal and state charges in connection with an alleged foiled plot to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer, authorities said Thursday. Six were apprehended and charged with federal crimes, while another seven were picked up on state charges, officials in Michigan said. All are members of two militia groups “who were preparing to kidnap and possibly kill me,” Whitmer said in an address from Lansing late Thursday afternoon following the arrests.
