Dells Man Charged In Plot To Kidnap Michigan Governor

More charges issued in kidnapping plot against Gov. Whitmer

Police arrested Higgins in Wisconsin on Thursday and he is jailed pending extradition to MI, where he's expected to face trial alongside seven other suspects charged with crimes under Michigan's anti-terrorism and firearms statutes.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has announced that a 14th person was charged in the case of the attempted kidnapping of the state Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer and plans to "instigate civil war".

Prosecutors say the men also sought to target law enforcement officers at their homes for intimidation, made threats of violence to incite civil unrest and trained for an operation to storm the MI state capitol in Lansing to take government officials hostage.

Agent Richard Trask also said members of anti-government paramilitary groups from several states discussed abducting Whitmer or Virginia's Democratic governor, Ralph Northam, during a June meeting in Ohio.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Nils Kessler, though, argued that the group repeatedly took steps to protect their communication by using encrypted chat tools and anxious that federal authorities had infiltrated the group. "I personally own 15", Satawa said.

Berens is also set to consider Friday whether two of the men, Adam Fox and Ty Garbin, should be denied bond ahead of trial.

However, Wasim insisted that this is not reciprocal to Pakistan's summer tour to England in the middle of COVID-19 pandemic. Pakistan did not host Test cricket for 10 years following an attack by gunmen on the Sri Lanka team in 2009.

Higgins is charged with material support of an act of terrorism, a felony that Nessel's office says carries a potential 20-year maximum prison sentence.

A sixth man, DE resident Barry Croft, was separately ordered to be transferred to MI earlier this week.

At least three of the defendants were among hundreds of protesters, many carrying weapons, who thronged the MI capitol on April 30 as state lawmakers debated Whitmer's request to extend her emergency health authority.

One of the men accused in the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was rebuffed in his request to be launched on bail Friday. And said when the men actually went on a surveillance mission to the governor's vacation home up north, it showed they took the idea of kidnapping the governor seriously.

"She (Whitmer) wants to be a dictator in MI, and the can't stand her", Trump said. Bellar had the role of "Sergeant", based on his expertise in firearms and medical training and ability to design tactical exercises, the affidavit states. The arrest warrant says Higgins participated in the plan to kidnap Whitmer by November 3, the date of the presidential election, between March 1 and October 12.
