Acting Secretary Wolf released the following statement after defendants appeared Monday in federal district court on charges related to a plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

“I applaud state and federal law enforcement successful efforts to thwart the plan of violent extremists to kidnap Governor Whitmer of Michigan and Governor Northam of Virginia.
