Three men were acquitted Friday of all charges against them concerning allegations that they were involved in a 2020 plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. They are the last men to be tried in the case.
Eric Molitor, William Null, and Michael Null were each acquitted on one count of providing material support for a terrorist act and possessing a firearm when committing or attempting a felony.
Prosecutors alleged the men targeted the Democratic governor’s northern Michigan vacation cottage and conducted surveillance of her home.
The Nulls said they didn’t know it was Whitmer’s house, and Molitor said he feared for his life. They had all left the group before the plot materialized. Molitor didn’t think the plot was going to happen.
Nine of the fourteen men arrested were convicted.

The kidnappers were primarily anarchists. Some were Antifa. They hated the government, and the police, and some hated Donald Trump.
This is one of the ringleaders:

So if some or most hated Donald Trump and were on the left-wing side of the political battlefield, how does Gov. Whitmer figure Donald Trump is responsible?
The Forbes report:
Whitmer was unharmed, and the plot never took place but she blamed Donald Trump for the actions of these men.
