Virginia governor says he won't work under "cloud of intimidation" amid alleged kidnapping plot

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.”

    The only intimidation happening is from antifa and blm who are viciously attacking anyone who is conservative. There was no kidnapping and anything even remotely close to an actual kidnapping. You know how many people on the internet say they want to kill or kidnap politicians hahahahah

    Xi Jinping and his Politburo gang in Beijing, China 🇨🇳, must have received lots of court summons and notifications of Class Action lawsuits by now.
    For Argentinian 🇦🇷criminal charges, an international arrest warrant might have been issued to Xi Jinping.
    Class Action lawsuits:
    – 🇬🇧 UK, demanding for $6.5 trillion in damage. This amount is about 6 times the Treasury Bonds that China is holding.
    – 🇪🇬 Egypt, seeking for $10 trillion.
    – 🇮🇹 Italy – Lombardy, seeking $20 billion in damages.
    – 🇺🇸 USA, 2 class action lawsuits, one in Florida and one in Texas. One is pursuing $20 trillion in damage.
    – 🇺🇸USA – Missouri state, seeking unspecified monetary compensation.
    – 🇺🇸USA – Mississippi state, seeking unspecified monetary compensation.
    – 🇺🇸 USA – New Yorkers, seeking unspecified monetary compensation.
    – 🇺🇸 USA –  DoJ has filed criminal charges against a Chinese company selling half of million fake N95 facemasks to the US.
    – Turkey, suing for negligence seeking unspecified monetary compensations.
    – 🇳🇬 Nigeria, suing China for $200 billion compensation.
    – 🇦🇷 Argentina , criminally charged Xi Jinping and his Politburo gang.
    Look it up if you don't believe this.

    the leader of the group was a FBI agent who led the rest of these idiots by the nose so they could have this story.

    The media is telling you the plotters are trump supporters even though their social media shows them supporting antifa / BLM and attending BLM rallies

    I don't support the intimidation of politicians, or obviously attacks against them.

    That said, these people clearly believed him to be a tyrant, as well as the governer of Michigan. This is a problem, not only with those people, but with the Governers themselves. If there are people that believe you're tyrannical, you've done something very wrong.

    What do you expect when you're so corrupt the fact that you're working for government means you don't care about anyone else but yourselves now you got us all on lockdown for something that has a death rate the same as the flu come on I don't wanna see anyone get hurt but Karma has a funny way of showing itself

    It's fascinating how these groups that would kidnap them seem to hate Trump, but these politicians somehow ignore that and go off on something completely different.
    Please stop lying or omit information when it doesn't suit your political career. You're no better than any other politician including Trump.

    The clowns that were going to kidnap Gretchen witless were antifa says the FBI,since the dummycrats say antifa doesn't exist then there's no reason this wimp can't keep working.
