Federal agents have unearthed the shocking details of the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer from her vacation home. The motive? The Governors COVID-19 restrictions.
In a recently filed 18-page court document, was an extensive list of firearms that included 70 firearms, ghost guns, explosives, and nearly 2,000 rounds of ammunition.
The plan to kidnap Whitmer was brought to national attention last October. Federal and state prosecutors announced charges against 13 men, who are members of the Michigan-based “Wolverine Watchmen” militia who are obsessed with the upcoming “boogaloo”

The militia group conspired to storm the statehouse or even hold a televised execution of lawmakers to make their delusions known.
So far there have been 14 men charged in connection to the kidnapping plot: Fox, Croft, Garbin, Franks, Harris, and Caserta are facing federal kidnapping charges. Numerous others have been charged with initiating gang memberships, use of a firearm in a felony, and providing material support for acts of terrorism. Meanwhile earlier this week, pending terrorism charges have been dropped against 3 defendants.
