Jury is told 2 men wanted to kidnap Whitmer, start revolt
Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. wanted to ignite a “second American revolution” in 2020.
A second trial is underway for two men accused of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. A prosecutor told jurors Wednesday that Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. wanted to ignite a “second American revolution” in 2020.
Fox and Croft are on trial for a second time, four months after a jury couldn’t reach a unanimous verdict on them and acquitted two other men.
Prosecutors again will present secretly recorded conversations and video, text messages and social media posts to show that a band of rebels was serious about getting the Democratic governor.
Defense attorneys insist there was no real conspiracy. They say Fox and Croft were entrapped.
