It turns out, Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer wasn’t the only target of a group of anarchists. An FBI agent says Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was another possible kidnapping target.
Agent Richard Trask has made that claim in court when discussing the group that's charged with planning to kidnap Governor Whitmer. Trask says Whitmer and Northam were targeted due to orders they issued to fight back against the coronavirus pandemic.
Federal authorities have charged six people in the Michigan case while state officials have brought charges against seven. Northam has declined to comment on the investigation saying he doesn’t want to interfere. He did, however, thank law enforcement for their work in keeping him and his family safe.
