A new report by the FBI revealed on Tuesday that the militants in Michigan who plotted to kidnap Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer were also working on a plan to kidnap Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.
The Washington Post reported that FBI Special Agent Richard Trask testified during a court appearance in the city of Grand Rapids that the militants accused in the Whitmer plot also discussed targeting Northam during a meeting that took place in Dublin, Ohio earlier this year.
“At this meeting they discussed possible targets, taking a sitting governor, specifically issues with the governors of Michigan and Virginia, based upon the lockdown orders,” he said.
Donald Trump had targeted both Whitmer and Northam earlier this year over their efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19.
