Six men have been arrested over an alleged plot to kidnap the Democrat governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, and turn her over in Wisconsin for trial on the charge of treason. The complaint that was unsealed in a federal court today, charges six men, five of the men are Michigan residents Adam Fox, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, Brandon Caserta, the sixth man, Barry Croft is a Delaware resident.
Whitmer has been criticized by Independent voters, Republicans, and Democrats for her draconian lockdown measures over the COVID pandemic, causing businesses to close and over one million residents to file for unemployment.
During an interview with Paul Egan of the Detroit Free Press, Governor Whitmer, with no evidence of her vile accusation, attempted to tie the group of men accused of plotting to kidnap her to President Trump and white supremacy.
At the 2:03 mark, Egan asks, “Governor, as I understood your remarks right now, you said that President Trump is basically complicit in giving encouragement to groups such as this. An I understanding you correctly?” he asked. Whitmer responded, “I said that words matter and anyone that is in a leadership position and is fraternizing or giving comfort to militia groups is complicit.” Whitmer clarified, “We’re talking about white supremacy groups and that’s exactly what we’re confronting right now.” She continued, When leaders, whether it is um, a local leader or it is the President of the United States, our words matter. And they either calm things down, or they incite them,” Whitmer said.
The truth is, the more the public discovers about the men involved in the plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer, the more it’s clear the anti-police, anti-government, anti-Trump radicals were more aligned with the Marxist BLM movement and violent domestic terrorist group, Antifa.
Brandon Caserta, one of the anarchists who was arrested for plotting to kidnap Whitmer, actually hates President Trump and is on video calling Trump a “tyrant.”
“Trump is not your friend dude,” Caserta said.
He says Trump is “a tyrant” and calls President Trump an “enemy.”
Wow! This is big. Brandon Caserta, one of the ringleaders of the group of men arrested for a plot where the group planned to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, hated President Trump too!

Another one of the alleged plotters, 23-year-old Daniel Harris, attended a Black Lives Matter protest in June, telling the Oakland County Times he was upset about the killing of George Floyd and police violence.”

The Detroit Free Press reports – The Wolverine Watchmen militia group didn’t just plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, but they were on a mission to attack the state Capitol and target police officers at their homes as part of a broader mission to instigate a civil war, authorities said Thursday in announcing felony charges against 13 militia members accused in a sensational case of domestic terrorism.
Attorney General Dana Nessel referred to the accused as “extremists” who are hoping to recruit new members “by seizing on a moment of civil unrest” to wreak havoc on the country. She identified the militia group as the Wolverine Watchmen, whose members are accused of, among other things, conducting surveillance outside Whitmer’s vacation residence, using code language and encrypted messages to throw off police, and planting a bomb under a bridge to divert law enforcement.
Nessel said the suspects called on other members to identify the home addresses of law enforcement officers in order to target them, “made threats of violence to instigate a civil war leading to societal collapse” and engaged in the planning and training for an operation to attack the state Capitol building and kidnap government officials, including Whitmer.
In the midst of the COVID pandemic, while nursing home patients where Gov. Whitmer was sending COVID infected patients, were dropping like flies, she was locking arms with Black Lives Matter protesters in Highland Park, MI, on the border of Detroit.
During a press conference on Thursday, Michigan’s far-left attorney general, Dana Nessel, who has embraced the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement and remained silent about the violent anarchist group, Antifa, warned about a “disturbing increase in anti-government rhetoric and the re-emergence of groups that embrace extremist ideologies.” Nessel told the media, “This is more than just political disagreement or passionate advocacy, some of these groups’ mission is simply to create chaos and inflict harm upon others.”
