One of the 13 militiamen involved in the plot to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer also called President Trump a 'tyrant' and described all government workers as 'enemies'.
The men are all right-wing fanatics who plotted to kidnap Whitmer at her vacation home in Michigan. They wanted to put her on trial for 'treason' in a safe house in Wisconsin, but had their plot foiled by the FBI.
Another part of their plan was to 'instigate a civil war', according to charging documents filed on Thursday.
In one of the many videos posted on social media by the men, Brandon Caserta, one of the men charged, fumes: 'Trump is not your friend, dude.
'It amazes me that people actually, like, believe that when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant.
'Every single person that works for government is your enemy, dude.'
It has also been revealed that the Michigan Attorney General's Office knew about the plot and had to move Whitmer and her family around to keep them safe.
