Trump attacks the FBI director on the same day they bust a right wing plot to kidnap a Dem governor

Coincidence?

FBI Busts Militia Plot to Kidnap and Kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Violently Overthrow Government

The FBI busted a militia plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) and violently overthrow the state government, according to The Detroit News.

Those involved with the plot allegedly reached out to members of a Michigan militia, according to the federal affidavit filed Thursday.

At least six men are involved and were arrested on Wednesday night after the FBI and the Michigan State Police raided 24-year-old Ty Garbin’s home in Hartland for several hours.

“Several members talked about murdering ‘tyrants’ or ‘taking’ a sitting governor,” an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit. “The group decided they needed to increase their numbers and encouraged each other to talk to their neighbors and spread their message.”

Trump criticizes "disappointing" FBI director Christopher Wray

Washington — President Trump called FBI director Christopher Wray "disappointing" on Thursday, criticizing him for not doing more to investigate voter fraud, after Wray said there is no evidence of any coordinated fraud ahead of the election.


"He's been disappointing," Mr. Trump said about Wray in an interview with Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo. "He doesn't see the voting ballots as a problem."

Wray testified before Congress two weeks ago that the bureau has "not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it's by mail or otherwise."

Also, let's not forget about Trump's call to "liberate" Michigan....

Trump tweets 'liberate' Michigan

Lansing — President Donald Trump targeted Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia in tweets Friday calling for officials to "liberate" the states amid protests over stay-at-home orders aimed at stemming the spread of COVID-19.

Trump first tweeted "LIBERATE MINNESOTA!" Then, a minute later, the president tweeted "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!"

Minutes after that, he added in another message, "LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!"

1. Not a coincidence

Wray did this on his own, broke ranks from Barr and Trump.
