The Fed secret document contains a video of Adam Fox, 37 – the leader of the anti-government extremist militia – as he loaded a long gun, a Fox News correspondent in western Michigan also reports.
It also includes text messages from the accused conspirators, who told their chat group “F— Turn around and See.”
In a message released by federal prosecutors on Friday, suspect Ty Garbin, 25, allegedly suggested blowing up a bridge near Whitmer’s holiday home to slow down police responding to Whitmer’s abduction.
“Getting out of bed is the craziest idea. Let one go to her house. “
“Knock on the door and when she responds she will just cover it,” the text continues.
The 14 men arrested in the suspected plot were expected to take revenge on Whitmer for her “uncontrollable power” over the lives of residents during a coronavirus pandemic.
