On Thursday, a plot to kidnap Michigan Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, was foiled and 13 people were arrested.

The FBI says the men were attached to a militia group known as the ‘Wolverine Watchmen’.  Feds were tipped off about the plan earlier this year and sent an undercover agent to meet with the group in Ohio in June.

The alleged plot included an attack on Michigan’s state capitol to kidnap Whitmer and other government officials, in an attempt to “instigate a civil war”.

Later, Governor Whitmer held a press conference thanking those who helped dismantle the plot…

“I’ve said it many times: We are not one another’s enemy,” Whitmer said. “This virus is our enemy, and this enemy is relentless.”

She continued by saying..“Our head of state has spent the last seven months denying science, ignoring his own health experts, stoking distrust, fomenting anger and giving comfort to those who spread fear and hatred and division,” Whitmer said.

President taking to his favorite platform to respond.
