13 members of 2 militia groups have been arrested for hatching a plot to kidnap and possibly kill Michigan Governor, Gretchen Whitmer.

The Governor made the announcement that the FBI investigated and made the arrests. According to TMZ, she blames Trump for “setting a violent tone that encourages right-wing groups to resort to violence.”

In the past, Trump urged his supporters to assist with liberating Michigan and supporters showed up with guns at the State Capitol.

Whitmer did not name the organizations that were targeted by the FBI, nor did she name the people who were arrested. Apparently, the scheme to kidnap her involved months of planning and rehearsals to snatch Whitmer from her vacation home.
