The 14 men now charged in a domestic terror plot to kidnap and and possibly murder Michigan's Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer had a "Plan B": an armed insurrection, complete with a takeover of the state capitol, which would have included a week of televised public executions of elected government officials.
