Virginia governor says he won’t work under “cloud of intimidation” amid alleged kidnapping plot

Global News published this video item, entitled “Virginia governor says he won’t work under “cloud of intimidation” amid alleged kidnapping plot” – below is their description.

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.” For more info, please go to https://globalnews.ca/news/7393642/5-men-michigan-governor-kidnapping-plot-face-hearings/ Subscribe to Global News Channel HERE: http://bit.ly/20fcXDc Like Global News on Facebook HERE: http://bit.ly/255GMJQ Follow Global News on Twitter HERE: http://bit.ly/1Toz8mt Follow Global News on Instagram HERE: https://bit.ly/2QZaZIB #GlobalNews
