Six men have been arrested by the FBI in a plot to kidnap Gov Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan. Whitmer immediately blamed President Trump for the plot, but one of the anarchists hates President Trump. This is what the left does. Blame Trump first because who cares if you lie? Democrats lying is as common as fish swimming.
Brandon Caserta, one of anarchists who was arrested for plotting to kidnap Whitmer, actually hates the president and made a video where he calls Trump a tyrant:
The six men who were arrested includes Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta . It is alleged that they tried to recruit members in order to raid a the capital building in Lansing with 200 men and they would kidnap Whitmer and try her for being a tyrant. Fox had reached out to a militia group in order to convince them to join.
The militia, however was not involved in the plot or their participation was minimal at best as no one was charged in the plot.
The FBI said:
“Fox said he needed ‘200 men’ to storm the Capitol building in Lansing, Michigan, and take hostages, including the Governor. Fox explained they would try the Governor of Michigan for ‘treason,’ and he said they would execute the plan before the November 2020 elections.”
According to the FBI, it learned of the plan through confidential sources and undercover agents over several months who attended militia group meetings. The FBI said the militia group would hold field training exercises on private property in remote areas of Michigan, where they would engage in firearm training and tactical drills.
At one point, the FBI said the group had a meeting in Grand Rapids in the basement of a shop that was accessed through a trap door hidden under a rug on the main floor. At that business, the FBI said they discussed the plan for the Capitol and planned to use “Molotov cocktails” to destroy police cars.
The FBI said Fox called Whitmer a “tyrant b****” and asked the group to be linked with other systems and asked for ideas of what they can do.
The FBI has recordings of the group discussing different plans, including shooting up Whitmer’s vacation home and capturing her there when she went for a visit. The FBI said that Fox had told someone that the group had purchased an 800,000 volt taser to use in the kidnapping.
The group allegedly built IEDs and practiced with them using human silhouettes. They wanted to know if they would be practical to use in the kidnapping plot.
Many Democrats are still blaming Trump for the kidnapping plot. But that is to be expected since the president is evidently responsible for burned-out refrigerator bulbs, the agony of defeat and the heartbreak of psoriasis.
