Ali debunks Whitmer kidnapping conspiracy theory

Michigan gubernatorial candidate Garrett Soldano has been circulating the conspiracy theory that the intended kidnapping of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was a government plot to sway the 2020 election. Javed Ali, associate professor of practice, debunked the theory.

"Two of the six charged with federal offenses (Garbin and Franks) already pled guilty, which indicates they thought the weight of the government's evidence was sufficient enough that pleading out was a better strategy than going to trial," he said.
