‘We Will Find You,’ Whitmer Warns Extremists
At a press conference on Thursday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan addressed a recent plot to kidnap her along with other government officials.
Earlier today, Attorney General Dana Nessel was joined by officials from the Department of Justice and the F.B.I. to announce state and federal charges against 13 members of two militia groups, who were preparing to kidnap and possibly kill me. When I put my hand on the Bible and took the oath of office 22 months ago, I knew this job would be hard. But I’ll be honest, I never could have imagined anything like this. I want to start by saying thank you to our law enforcement. Thank you to the fearless F.B.I. agents and thank you to the brave Michigan State Police troopers who participated in this operation. When our leaders speak, their words matter. They carry weight. When our leaders meet with, encourage or fraternize with domestic terrorists, they legitimize their actions. And they are complicit. So let me say this loud and clear: Hatred, bigotry and violence have no place in the great state of Michigan. If you break the law or conspire to commit heinous acts of violence against anyone, we will find you. We will hold you accountable, and we will bring you to justice.
