More Time Sought To Indict In Governor Kidnapping Case

From the Associated Press — Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to give them an extra 40 days until mid-December to seek a grand jury indictment in an alleged scheme to kidnap Michigan’s governor. Prosecutors say they’re sorting through evidence, including explosive-device components. The components and firearms could lead to additional charges. Authorities allege members of two
anti-government paramilitary groups plotted the kidnapping of Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat. Six men are charged in federal court. A judge previously said there is enough evidence for prosecutors to seek an indictment by the first week of November. Prosecutors say defense attorneys have raised no objections to an extension.
