RNC Chair Claims Terrorists Who Plotted To Kidnap And Murder Michigan Governor Have “No Political Affiliation”

Mediaite reports:

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos pressed Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel over President Donald Trump egging on his supporters as they rail against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

First of all, the president and his FBI foiled this plot,” she responded. “I think Governor Whitmer is really inappropriate to try to lay blame at the president. These were sick individuals, there was no political affiliation.” As McDaniel said she was thankful for Whitmer’s safety, Stephanopoulos reminded her “he’s saying lock them all up!”

“Because of her locking down our state,” McDaniel responded. “Let’s not take the rhetoric further. Let’s not continue to extrapolate things that were not being said.”
