Accused conspirators charged in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also discussed "taking" Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, an FBI agent testified at a court hearing Tuesday.
During the hearing in Grand Rapids, Mich., to discuss the charges filed last week against members of a self-proclaimed militia accused of plotting to kidnap Michigans Democratic governor, FBI Special Agent Richard Trask revealed that months ago some of the suspects met in Dublin, Ohio, where Northam, also a Democrat, was discussed as a potential target.

Both 2nd A states.
Something smells about all this.
They were all wearing red hats and yelling This is MAGA country...(snark)
This whole thing reminds me of a dog chasing a UPS truck.
What does the dog do once he catches the truck?
Oooooooooh they were “plotting”.
Welcome to the internet where any group of idiots can do that.
Like how many “plots” against Trump are out there on any given day that ends in Y?
There was a whole operation out in public about “besieging” the White House.
Give someone enough weed and they will plot to kidnap themselves.
I don’t believe a word of the State’s case.
Why just Democrat governors?
Theres the propaganda angle obviously - but taking it at face value Im thinking they wanted to do so because they knew the DNC would be sympathetic.
Or.. the whole thing is a false flag that blew up in their face.
But who here in Virginia would notice if they did?
Nobody who really wanted to make a political impact would stage a kidnapping.
Just too many things to go wrong. Keeping the subject alive. Dealing with escape and rescue attempts, unknown medical issues, etc. Even practiced experts like the Mossad are reluctant. Too many moving parts.
Sniper fire or an umbrella ricin injector. That’s the way to go.
With modern tech it is ridiculously easy for law enforcement to track kidnappers using vehicles, cell phones, street cams, internet chat monitoring, etc.
This is not the 1920s where kidnapping prominent figures might actually be survivable...
I agree. Something just before the election that makes the right look bad, and gives sympathy for Whitmer and Northam? That is odd, isn't it?
FBI racing at breakneck speed when it has taken them 3-4 years to move a little bit toward obvious Hillary-Obama-Comey-McCabe crimes.
They found these people when they were ‘plotting’ and yet it took 4 YEARS to find out HilLiARy created the ‘Russia Collusion’ hoax?
Personally I would presume that any high-profile public figure has had some type of GPS tracking device implanted in their body. You’re right, it’s a suicide mission.
I do expect though that one day we’ll see an assassination carried out by drone.
I’m sure they said a lot of things, goaded on by an FBI rat. Doesn’t make them less stupid, but I’m betting this was the FBI rats finding some useful idiots on the Intra-Webs to spout BS, so they could make an October publicity stunt.
The FBI _still_ hasn’t figured out the Clinton Foundation was the world’s largest pay to play extortion scheme.
Just Us, no justice.
The most bizarre thing about this whole shenanigans is that the FBI found time to break away from trying to overthrow the duly elected President to pursue this case.
