Two men charged with conspiracy to detonate “the second American Revolution”starting with her kidnapping Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

This decision constitutes a victory for the US government, as this was the second attempt to try them. Four months ago, a federal judge in Grand Rapids declared a mistrial in the same case against him Adam Fox, 39 years old and his Barry Croft Jr., 46. Two other defendants were acquitted in the first trial.

Fox and Croft J., who according to the government were members of the paramilitary organization Three Percenters (“The Three Hundred”), were also found guilty of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, an explosive device that prosecutors said would have prevented security forces from responding to the kidnapping. Croft was also found guilty of possession of an explosive device.

Both of you may be sentenced to life imprisonment.
