A US governor luckily escaped kidnappers net

The FBI says it has thwarted a plot to abduct and overthrow Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Mrs Whitmer has become a target of coronavirus sceptics after enacting strict mitigation measures that were overturned by a judge last week.

Officials say the kidnapping plot involved six men who planned to hold a “treason trial” for her.

“Hatred, bigotry and violence have no place” in Michigan, Mrs Whitmer said, describing the accused as “depraved”.

“Several members talked about murdering ‘tyrants’ or ‘taking’ a sitting governor,” the charging document states.

In one video, a suspect denounced the state’s role in deciding when to reopen gyms during the coronavirus lockdown.
