FBI says it foiled plot to kidnap Michigan governor

A militia group planned to violently depose Michigan’s government and abduct Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), the FBI said in a federal affidavit filed Thursday.

"Several members talked about murdering 'tyrants' or 'taking' a sitting governor," an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit, obtained by the Detroit News. "The group decided they needed to increase their numbers and encouraged each other to talk to their neighbors and spread their message."

Federal prosecutors plan to make a fuller statement on the alleged plot later Thursday, according to the newspaper.

At least five men have been charged in connection with the alleged plot, identified as Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta, according to the affidavit.

Does anyone remember a movie called Arlington Road? I think that plot is coming to fruition. These militia groups are trying to stage a coup and take over and set up a real life Gilead. About a month ago I think I had a run in with one on a news forum comment section. At first I shrugged it off as a troll but now I think it was a real threat from one of them.

Trump always has called for violence at his Tent Revirals and his "Liberate Michigan" is an incitement to insurrection.

Yes. That's the current US President.

Still, call me a sentimental, cock-eyed optimist, but I predict when Trump is trounced, trash along these likes will accept it without violence.

Even most of them know the ride is over, they "owned the libs" for 4 years, and the curtain should be brought down.

All In With Chris Hayes just had a member of the Michigan legislature and she said it is against the law to carry signs into the capitol building but not to carry guns into the capitol building, they are afraid that the signs might chip the paint on the walls, but not afraid of what the guns might do. Unfucking believable.

They should arrest the judge who ruled against Whitmer, too. That ruling was not only legislating from the bench, it was obstruction of justice and makes him an accessory before, during, and after the fact to terrorism and treason. In fact, anyone who gets in Gov. Whitmer's way for any reason should be arrested for terrorism.

This is who they are in the linked pic. It would be interesting to know if any of them turned up at this demonstration/stormed the building and are in the pic.

Maybe you're being stupid, R13, but you inadvertently have a point: in the late '20s the burgeoning Klan was brought down by a scandal when the Grand Dragon kidnapped and raped a schoolteacher, who then committed suicide. The Klan rapidly declined in the middle of the country.

That was actually a great sign language interpreter. Half of ASL is comprised of the facial expressions accompanying the sign. But you sound like someone who doesn’t really know a lot so, that’s probably news to you.

The plan was to spirit her to Wisconsin for some reason and "try" her for treason in a kangaroo court ... after which, I guess, they would execute her.
