Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer talks foiled kidnapping, execution plot: 'We have to call out domestic terrorism'

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer joined “The View” on Tuesday and discussed the chilling allegations of a plot by an antigovernment group to kidnap her. “It’s very clear from the affidavits that it wasn’t simply to kidnap, it was to put me on a trial of some sort and then possibly execute me,” Whitmer told the show’s co-hosts. “That’s the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from a group like ISIS.” At least two o the men involved, William and Michael Null, previously participated in armed lockdown protests at the Michigan state Capitol in April. “And that’s why when people refer to these groups casually as militias, we have to call it for what it is, and we have to call out domestic terrorism,” Whitmer said.
