Troubling new details have emerged about the alleged conspiracy to kidnap the Democratic governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.
New details emerge in Whitmer Kidnapping Plot
A judge heard Tuesday that the militia group targeting Whitmer had spoken to the New York Post about posing someone as a pizza delivery boy before killing them.
"Let a person go to their house and when they answer just lock them up," suspect Daniel Harris reportedly said when texting his comrades referring to Whitmer. "At this point, just f-k it."
Harris, code-named Beaker, also suggested that the shooter dress up first.
"Ambush the pizza delivery boy and take his shirt … impersonating a pizza delivery boy and when she opens the door just take a gun and three rounds," he reportedly wrote.
FBI Agent Richard Trask testified that another suspect named Ty Garbin was so concerned that the government tapped their phones that he suggested they wear tin foil hats. Many conspiracy theories believe that tin foil can interfere with cell phone reception, although it is not.

Suspects also had a different aim
The judge was told the suspects spent the summer months planning Whitmer's kidnapping and murder after being angry about her strict coronavirus lockdown measures. Whitmer wasn't the only governor they targeted either, as they also planned against the Democratic governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam.

"They discussed possible targets and took a seated governor with them, specifically [over] issues with the Michigan and Virginia governor based on lockdown orders," added Trask.
The FBI agent went on to say that members of the militia had practiced rapid loading of their weapons and packing devices, which were supposed to explode with shrapnel. They also monitored Whitmer and planned to bomb police cars to prevent a quick response to their attacks.
This is because US judge Sally Berens hears arguments about whether or not three of the suspects should be released on bail. Another two suspects are due to appear in a similar court hearing on Friday.

Whitmer and Northam try to blame Trump
Last week it became known that Whitmer was about to be kidnapped and murdered, much to the shock of Americans everywhere. Both Whitmer and Northam have implied that President Donald Trump and his rhetoric were responsible for these conspiracies, but White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany shot this down.
"Trump has consistently condemned white supremacists and all forms of hatred," she said, according to Fox News. “Whitmer and now Governor Northam sow division by making these outlandish accusations. America stands united against hatred and in support of our federal law enforcement agencies who stopped this conspiracy. "
