Maps, chats among evidence released in alleged kidnapping plot against Gretchen Whitmer

GRAND RAPIDS The U.S. Attorney's Office in Grand Rapids on Friday released a wide range of photos, videos and other exhibits introduced into evidence at a preliminary examination for six men charged with conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

Exhibits introduced before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sally Berens include:

- Videos of live-fire training exercises.
- Still photos and videos from surveillance conducted outside Whitmer's family cottage in northern Michigan.
- An image of a map of the area around Whitmer's cottage allegedly drawn by plot ringleader Adam Fox. Prosecutors redacted parts of the map so it would not show where the house is located.
- Images of chat threads among the various defendants, discussing their plans. The chats were encrypted, but the FBI and prosecutors were able to de-encrypt them, because a confidential informant who was part of the anti-government group was included in the chat strings.
- Photos of various firearms.
- A self-made video of one of the defendant's tirades against the police.
