VICE/Thirteen men, including members of the anti-government militia “Wolverine Watchmen,” are facing charges for allegedly conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer from her summer vacation home and “storm” the state Capitol building with 200 men.

The plot was revealed in an FBI criminal complaint that named six people as federal defendants, from Michigan, Delaware, and Ohio. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced state terrorism charges against an additional seven individuals Thursday, all tied to the Wolverine Watchmen, and praised the FBI for thwarting what she described as a “serious and credible threat to public safety.”
