Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said on Tuesday that he would not work under a “cloud of intimidation,” after an FBI agent testified that some of the suspects accused of trying to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also contemplated doing the same to Northam.
He said he would not comment further as it was an ongoing investigation, but emphasized he and Virginia First Lady Pamela Northam were safe.
Northam spoke about COVID-19 measures, which Whitmer had also come under criticism for from President Donald Trump, saying that the CDC offered guidelines but then Trump had said to “liberate Virginia.” He said it was an example of “mixed messages” coming from Washington and that “words have meaning to people. The president had also, around the same time, encouraged his followers on Twitter to “liberate Michigan.”
