Man Who Plotted Governor Whitmer Kidnap Wanted To HANG President Trump

( Despite claims by Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer that the people accused of plotting to kidnap her were emboldened by President Donald Trump, an FBI search warrant affidavit shows that the kidnappers were anti-Trump. A Delaware man accused of being part of that group reportedly expressed his desire to hang several major Republicans, Libertarians, and Democrats – as well as President Trump.

An FBI search warrant that was seen by WXYZ-TV shows how Barry Craft posted a picture of President Donald Trump on Facebook in May, accompanied by a message saying that the president’s “true colors” were coming through and that he wanted to “hang this mf’er.”

It flies in the face of the argument made by Gretchen Whitmer that the plot to kidnap her was the president’s fault.

“Every time the president ramps up his violent rhetoric, every time he fired up Twitter to launch another broadside against me, my family and I see a surge of vicious attacks sent our way,” Whitmer claimed in an op-ed for The Atlantic.

“This is no coincidence, and the president knows it. He is sowing division and putting leaders, especially women leaders, at risk. And all because he thinks it will help his reelection,” she claimed.

The new information from the FBI, however, proves that Whitmer was wrong. The plot to kidnap her appears to have been organized by anarchists who dislike politicians and particularly disliked President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.

Croft was among the earliest members of the group who plotted to kidnap the Democratic politician, along with another man named Adam Fox. In early October, a criminal complaint explained how the two men connected in the first half of the year and started planning to “unite other in their cause and take violent action against multiple state governments that they believe are violating the U.S. Constitution.”

The Washington Post inaccurately reported in early October that Croft was a supporter of the president, but there is no evidence of this.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer has yet to issue an apology for implicating the president with a kidnap plot that he not only had no involvement with or connection to, but which was stopped thanks to the Trump administration.
