HARTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — We’re learning more about the extensive measures that were going on behind the scenes to keep Governor Gretchen Whitmer and her family safe while 13 men were allegedly plotting her kidnapping, torture, and even death.
Both the governor and state attorney general are now talking about this sensitive part of the case.
As if this case is not enough to wrap your head around, the governor changed some of her public plans, and privately had to be moved to safe houses.
We’re now learning that while the FBI and Michigan State Police were investigating, they had infiltrated the plot with confidential informants and undercover agents who knew most of the plans in real-time, and kept the governor and her family on the move.
Before the series of raids on Wednesday night took down the operation, the feds revealed they had Wolverine Watchmen as confidential informants.
They have audio recordings of the secret meetings.
The plan was to not only kidnap the governor, but torture her, and put her on a kangaroo court trial in Wisconsin ending in an execution.
The attorney general says this is not over. Other groups are out there.
The attorney general says she has a lot of investigations going on now in her office.
