GRAND RAPIDS, MI (AP)-- An FBI agent has testified that members of anti-government paramilitary groups who plotted to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also discussed abducting Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.
The agent said Tuesday that both governors were mentioned during a June meeting in Ohio of extremists from several states. No one has been charged with plotting against Northam.
A federal judge in Grand Rapids, Michigan, ordered three Michigan defendants held without bond before trial in the alleged scheme involving Whitmer. The judge delayed a decision on two other Michigan men. Another was ordered transferred to Michigan from his home state of Delaware.
